    I recall a poster named sydney (he didn't want the "S" capitalized). He was a cranky old guy who seemed to know a hell of a lot about bike mechanics and posted in the Road forum and Mechanics a lot....

    It depends how heavy you are. It depends how fast you'll be riding on dirt and grass. It depends on the ruggedness of the surface you're riding on. It depends how frequently you'll be riding on...

    Congratulations! I did the climb in 2009 and again in 2010. It was an epic ride. Like you, I had my wife meet me at a couple predetermined checkpoints - the Sunrise Market, then the Visitor Center...

    Maybe it's just me, but I get a little nervous at the thought of riding a bike handmade by a kid who says, "I don't have a lot of time for the carbon work...". Good for him in making an effort,...

    Exactly. A corpse could go 24mph downhill. He wouldn't be able to steer very well, but he could easily hit that speed.

    If the bike weighed only 15 lbs, it seems odd that it failed when he picked up the bike by the seat. If anything, I'd think that the rails would have failed when he installed the seat and rode it...

    Good advice, but I'd take it a step further. Get the name of the company President, or at least one of the executives in charge of human resources, then visit them in person. Have an account of the...

    I can't help but feel that you started this thread partly so you could show off pictures of your bike. I can't say that I blame you. If I had that nice a bike, I'd do the same.

    I went through 3 or 4 models of wireless computers (I don't remember the specific make and models) but I was always a bit disappointed by the sensors. It was hard to get them to stay in place. I'd...

    A little bit of both, I guess. I have 5 pairs of extra wheels. Each pair has it's own bungee and there's about a 2.5 foot distance between each bungee. I don't have any pictures of my setup right...
