    This particular fork is a version of the lefty called the solo. There's a version with suspension and one that's purely rigid - the solo is a bit interesting, I think it's the first iteration of the...

    As an owner of a Tubus Cosmo, I think it's an awesomely strong and well designed rack. It's hard to tell from some photos online, but it isn't actually chrome / polished. It's just a nice bright...

    That isn't exactly how it works. You need the correct bottom bracket type to fit your shell threading and width (which is 68mm english on the Big Dummy),

    But then the spindle length is dependent...

    There's a normal kickstand plate on the Halsted, and on all of Civia's bikes save for the Hyland. As for why the Hyland was designed with the kickstand as such, I don't know.

    Hey, a quick update on this! I went to the shop today and tried the bike out - long story short, I liked it enough to buy one. So, expect a short term review soon!

    Hub brakes such as disc, drum and roller brakes all offer improved all-weather use and have lower maintenance.

    I have used all 4.

    Personally, I find the Ute okay, but not something I'd personally consider. Yes, it comes in nicely equipped at a decent price tag and it looks pretty attractive, but it isn't...

    Hello, sorry for the slow reply! I have not been on Bikeforums a lot lately.

    In a similar category, I looked at the Civia Loring and the Trek Belleville. In the end, I am happy with the choice of...

    I was really stoked to get this bike for quite a while, ended up going for a Globe Live instead. But the other month, one of them finally came in stock here in Calgary, so I went to go look anyways....

    You are entirely correct about the Globe Live. The fork is a high offset fork, and the head angle is steep. The idea is to give the bike a low trail which is intentionally done in order to provide...

    I have a set of the Mary bars, and they're pretty close to what you are describing. Hands come in, but not parallel - the design puts your hands in the same spot as if you were using a flat or riser...

    I've seen the Brodie Pax in person and take a look at it (seemed okay!), although I unfortunately never rode it. I did ride the Section 7 and Section 8, which are very similar bikes save for having...

    My personal experience with the SMP has been extremely good. I've found them a bit harsher to ride on than the average touring tire, but they're not unbearable and they are extremely robust.
