    Maggi and I use the double-down method primarily for that reason. We used to live in an uber-urban area and there were 20 traffic controls of one kind or another in just the first ten miles of our...

    The old time left foot vs right foot arguments, (reversed for any drive-on-the-left localities), were as follows:

    My first tandem ride was behind the man who taught me how to handle a bike back in the early 70's, so naturally, I had supreme confidence in him. He told me to get in the drops, bury my head in the...

    DON'T MISS the chance to test ride the Di2 bike! Looking forward to your thoughts on the system. Particularly check out the front shifting under power. Wonderful!

    CAAD 3 or 5? Why, the 3, of course! :thumb: Looking at the specs, they appear to be essentially the same frame, just the difference between 105 and Ultegra running gear.

    Do keep in mind, Ron, that even if it does help that's NO reason to tell the wife! You already have the approval for the Cannondale, and there's NO SUCH THING as too many bikes! :D

    Ron, you're on the right track. Every rider in the world has their favorite saddle that they swear by, but unless they are built *exactly* like you, the odds are their saddle ain't YOUR saddle. You...

    Nah, Tom, it happens every winter. It's in the summertime that you're required to have an excuse for not riding!

    Congrats on the radiation outcome, BTW.

    I originally had Ultegra shifters on the T2000, but don't remember experiencing that. They were 6503s, (9speed), mated with an Ultegra front mech and Ultegra cranks. Probably just a difference in...

    Interesting observation.

    It seems to be a trend that, within reason, the farther down Shimano's line you go, the better suited the component is to tandem usage. I found that their $35 "below...

    Love to. We both might even be in good enough shape to take the tandem so we don't slow you down and ride up and back to our truck.

    I'm sending my contact info.

    I'd rather have a broken arm than move! A broken bone only hurts for a couple of days, and moving is usually weeks of back breaking agony.
