    I've never wrecked on a bicycle, but I have on a motorcycle. Slow speed on a gravel road where it spun out and resulted in a shattered lower left leg. I remember the skid but not a thing about the...

    It's a term that simply describes someone that isn't doing what everyone else is doing. We have many terms that describe this, but people in general don't like other people that do their own thing. ...

    I'd like to get a better understanding as well about what you mean by "future proof". I think the first thing I would say is yes a cross bike will do what you want, but so will a more comfort...

    I've heard of rigid bikes going to suspension forks having issues due to geometry, but would the opposite also come into play? Would he have to find a fork that didn't screw with the geometry too...

    I was going to say something like a touring bike like a Trek 520, but I like the Bike Friday idea even more. Super versatile. My Moots is close if it had eyelets for racks and fenders.

    I use to ride mountain bikes in the Tampa area and hated the sand. I wonder if a fat bike would work well in that scenario.

    I've used the Cypress and the rebranded Barlow Pass tires for gravel and they worked great. I only used 32's and in 700c but should be the same result in 650. Very fast on the street and extremely...

    I've had the Swift and it was the only Brooks saddle that I liked. Sold it off and have stuck with the only other saddle that I've liked which is the Fizik Arione. Far less expensive also. Much...

    The Cervelo RS is a sweet riding bike. You can find them with SRAM Rival for around $1800.

    I had a similar situation where I had a Soma ES that I really like, then came across a Moots Pyschlo-x. Thought I might end up selling the Soma, but ended up using the Soma as my rain/Winter bike...

    How much gravel are you planning on riding? That may change the suggestions that people may provide. If a little, I may suggest going and test ride a Specialized Roubaix. If a lot, you might also...

    Your bike comes with a 50/39/30 triple and 12-27 rear cassette. That's some pretty low gearing. Don't take advice from whomever told you to go to a compact 50/34. They obviously don't know what...

    I haven't noticed any difference in ride or speed with them really. They do work well for cyclocross type stuff. Run them at lower pressure without pinching.

    Thing I like about titanium longevity is durability of the finish. My Moots is a 1999 and looks like it's brand new. This after years of cross racing and lots of gravel roads and single track. ...
