    New cassette shifting hard

    I just replaced my 9speed Shimano cassette that came stock on my Trek 7.4 FX with a Shimano HG80 9 speed cassette. I would have thought that this would be a pretty clean swap, but although...

    Carry a spare tube. If you get a flat you can just replace the bad one with the new one and then go through the motions of patching the bad tube when you get home. Although I do carry a patch kit I...

    I was avoiding going over to the Sport Chalet and measuring it myself but that looks like the only reasonable way.

  16. Dropout spacing on new lower end MASI?

    My wife really wants the Pink Masi Inizio Bellissima. Mostly she wants it because it's pink. The quality level of the bike is about where she is at in her cycling career so it's a viable near term...
