    Depends.

    If you want to run a super wide range cassette on the back, you might need the medium cage for that as well. It's a matter of what large cog the rear can handle, and how many cogs of...

    I really like bare matte ti, stainless with brazing in an off color, or bare looking carbon fiber.

    I'd say this thread is like walking into the vatican and screaming that your spoon stole your soul to use it to power a spaceship, and that you need funding.

    God help me but this early winter is bloody dreadful, isn't it?

    Wear whatever you want.

    How you have bloody nipples running in a 5k I do not for the life of me understand.

    If you think...

    Seriously? I'm not risking asplosion from using crabon. Steel hammers are real-er.

    And yes, bikes made for riding on the road that are crazy expensive are perhaps a little faster than cheap...

    How narrow a tire can you put on the diverge without adverse effect? If you can basically run it down to a skinny option akin to the roubaix equivalent, I'm swooning and thoroughly in a love at...

    I used to use a quite large cannondale seat wedge bag on my bike when we lived in the city.

    LARGE SEAT BAG, AS IT WAS THE ONLY CORRECT WAY TO LIVE AND RIDE A BICYCLE.

    Then we moved, and I...

    I have 9 speed ultegra/tiagra/xt mixed up now, but I wasn't sure what plays well together on the newer groups.

    I'm trying to figure out what triple parts pay nicely together, either campy 11 or...
  9. 11-32 10 Speed Cassettes on GS Derailleurs Okay... Any Cautionary Tales?

    As it says on the tin: for 5700/6700 GS derailleurs, it seems like you can run 32 max cog cassettes despite the spec saying differently. Is this accurate? Any trick to watch for on this? Any...

    Fork in this case is carbon, stem is threadless.

    Basically, 11 or ten speed triple, sti. If I can get this for same price as a smoothie, maybe it's a better option?

    Serotta Colorado CRL Question

    Question about an older Serotta Colorado CRL frame.

    Were these off-the-rack, or custom? Any reason to worry about stiffness for a 200-and-change-pound rider?

    Any concerns about condition and...

    I have a thomson on both my bikes (on the old bike, the post is worth more than the rest of the bike, honestly), and I would put one on anything I get next if needed... so the crummy seatpost isn't...

    I get the fluid done whenever I get pads done, I thought that was pretty standard... I also definitely have the fluid flushed and replaced probably once a year on my motorcycle, work I also don't do...

    I don't think the bars are necessarily higher or lower in either case. I think that the sloping top tube makes the whole frame look sort of more small and squat, less "rangy", and moves the eye down...

    I am not crazy about working on and having hydraulics on a bike, personally. I know MTB has had it for years, but I haven't got one myself and it feels like a bit of a headache (based on zero...

    I still think (not for any particularly good reasons, but I'm stuck on this) that frames look better with less slope to the top tube. There's something just more appealing about that level top tube...

    Interesting to me, I ride a triple, but my basic process is to just stay in the middle 39 almost all the time, using the full 9 at the rear. When things get going steeply upwards, I work my way down...

    Right there is another temptation: the Campy 11 has a 12-29 option, which might be about as perfect as you're going to find ANYWHERE for what I actually need. I wouldn't mind a bit more punch than...
  19. How To Phrase This Delicately? Adjustments Needed for 11 Speed Shimano vs. Campy?

    Campagnolo still makes a triple group in 11 speed, no one else does. They are also continuing to make 10 speed groups in triple for the time being.

    As a guy who's always ridden Shimano, reading...

    You live in Chicago. All you need gears for is adjusting for wind direction. When I was in Ohio, I had a 12 speed with a 23 big cog and it was just fine. While it's not like my house is in the...

    This is what we are all being told. I don't believe that that's true, on my numbers 30/30 is still lower than 30/32, and I don't need 50/11 at the top end. I'd rather have another triple, just to...

    The triple thing is now largely academic. I have one, love it, want another one on my next road bike, but you just can't buy a bike built up with a triple group for the road anymore, other than the...
