    The Lezyne pump head (chuck) is a love/hate thing. The pump itself is bullet-proof, the screw on head you either like or hate.

    With the Shamal, Eurus and Zonda you can get the "2-way fit" tubeless versions. The only problem with the Campy rims is that they're 20.5mm width, which might be on the narrow side for 28mm tires. ...

    Subaru does a good job with CVT's. They're basically standard on everything now. They're programmed to be a little less droney by letting the revs fluctuate more than many CVTs. It also...

    The lower grade Shimano stuff still runs 8-speed, so you can get a cheap FD that should work better than a hacked solution.

    Yes, the Deore XT works fine for road 10-speed. Its a relatively popular component for people wanting 32t or larger rear cassettes.

    The indexing is determined by your shifter, not by the rear...

    Sticky cables. When you push on the lever, you should feel it start to pull cable after about ~5-10mm of lever end travel. Most likely you have sticky cables that still have some slop after an...

    Narrow-wide chainrings are designed for 1xN mountain and cyclo-cross bikes. Some teeth are thicker to prevent any left/right wobble in the chain. The narrow teeth guide the chain into place, and...

    The MTB community basically solved the whole problem. Thru-axles fix the wheel ejection issue, and don't take much longer to remove than a QR. Thru axles also provide a more repeatable wheel...

    Ride both and pick the one you like better. The bikes are roughly equivalent in terms of spec and frame quality, so its a much better deal on paper. The Intenso is basically the previous generation...

    Are you sure the RD is bent and not the hanger for the derailuer? My wife crashed her bike, I was sure the RD was trashed, but it was just a bent hanger.

    Not really. They're expensive, and one more thing to get in the way. The vast majority of riders would see zero net benefit because of hills, low average speeds, and group rides. Most of those who...

    Fairings work great, provided you only go on flats. In anything other than time-trial conditions (flat, no drafting), they're basically just added weight. There are a few people who use them, but...

    Hydraulic disc brakes are great for the following reasons, hand effort, tire clearance, and all weather performance.
