    For stickers/decals, check ebay, believe it or not. I found a print shop that has stickers in different sizes, colors, and fonts. They were easy to appply and fairly rugged, but you really need to...

    Bought 2 bikes from them, they're a stand-up, reputable business. Bikes came in 5 days, in great shape. If you're experienced with wrenching, NP; otherwise take it to your LBS after you assemble...

    The 5600 105 and concurrent Ultegra share the same hoods. You can go to the Shimano website and look at the technical documents and compare part numbers. If you're good working with small parts,...

    Check flea-bay (ebay) for Microshift shifters, you may find a new pair for a bit less than Nashbar, unless you get one of their frequent 20% off sales. I have a Microshift 8 speed setup and it works...

    Cruise ebay for used component groups, I've seen Shimano Sora groups for $100 and up. Take a very close look at the photo's, you don't want to buy something that's all beat up. A bike shop in the...

    A hybrid, indeed. Check out what's available in shops, then go to www.bikesdirect.com and look at their hybrids. You can get a reasonably decent quality bike for under $450 and still have $50 left...

    I'm pretty sure it's plain old, gas pipe tubing. It could be worth $100 if it's in great shape. Not a bad bike, but it has steel wheels and all and could be a bottomless pit of upgrade spending. ...
