    Price For Mavic Brakes and Crank?

    Hey for the Mavic aficionados - I would appreciate help pricing some vintage Mavic parts. With the help of lots of therapy and the "support" of a vengeful wife, I've stepped back from the Mavic...

    I've been looking at those. The shield just barely fits over my glasses, which are pretty wide and blocky (RayBan New Wayfarers). I worry that a bump or jar might dislodge the shield while I'm...

    What I've read is that most of the races don't make any money, the race organizer even has to pay for TV coverage. The only race that is a really big money maker is the TdF. Some smaller races have...

    Do you have a good set of non-bike tools already - allen wrenches and so on? In other words do you need just the bike-specific tools, or are you starting from a rusty screwdriver and an old hammer...

    I think it would be difficult to duplicate the Bianchi position on the Panasonic. You'd have a reversed seatpost, super long stem . . . weird.

    You could get partway there with a zero offset...

    Maybe he wants to end his career with a TOC win? Seems unlikely that team will get invited to major European races.

    Pro Cycling's Woes

    Interesting that two of the three sports I follow are in financial distress. Formula One, where two teams are bankrupt and two more pretty close, and pro road cycling, where the world tour can't...

    Horner's agent says he has a deal with an "up and coming" domestic US team, not on the WT (so not BMC, Trek, etc).

    32 mm tire on 20 mm rim?

    I'm fixing a daily commute bike for a friend who has a very limited bike budget. His front rim is severely worn and probably won't make it through the winter. It is a 27" rim, fairly wide, in which...

    He was getting dropped earlier in the season by the guys who crashed out of the Tour. I think that, had Froome and Contador been in top form, Nibali would not have won.

    Bars and hoods tilted the same? Tilt can affect the effective reach to the hoods.

    Riding same gearing and cadence?

    I'd move the saddle between bikes and see if that makes a difference.
