    Definitely leave it on. It looks cool as is, doesn't weigh much and feels a lot better to dig your calf into than the bare chainring.

    Nicer shifters are usually easier to shift. A teflon-coated shift cable and new housing will make much more difference than whatever cheap gripshift you will end up with.

    That they were offering a new frame or a $250 credit should indicate how far their warranty goes. $250 would not cover a new bike so there should be no expectation a brand new bike was an option. As...

    The 19 year old mountain bike you currently own is entirely comprised of used and outdated parts. The amount of travel in your current fork has been relegated to hybrid forks. Dampening technology...

    Do you work at a shop or a distributor? Where are you seeing these broken carbon frames?

    Nevermind the carbon boogeyman, OP. Get carbon if you can afford it, though it surely won't come in under...

    Whatever cracked your knockoff carbon frame would have also done a number on a new carbon frame or an aluminum frame. I'm sorry you took a risk and got burned by it.

    Don't get the Descent. Especially if you're going to be spending a fair amount of time on the road, the rear suspension is the last thing you want. Go into Framework and talk to them. Anything...

    It probably won't. I'm pretty sure 9spd and 10spd Sram derailleurs have different pull-ratio requirements because of different anchoring points.

    Sorry.

    It could be a dozen different things, from a warped rotor to play in the fork stanchions. Instead of fiddling with the headset or doing something silly like putting lube on the rotor, bring it to a...

    Don't go to Sportchek.

    If you're getting a bike for riding on pavement and gravel, DON'T get a full suspension. In fact, it may be more reasonable and cost effective to update the bike you...

    I was really hoping this was a Maelstrom-era holdover thread that had been resuscitated over and over like the "V-brake versus canti" debate.

    Is it possible the wheel you're using now is a loaner wheel while they wait for a warrantied wheel from Trek? You should go back to the shop and talk to them. I'm sure they have better explanations...

    The "brifter" (I hate that word) levers aren't long-pull. They're long levers activating short-pull brakes. The interrupters are shorter levers with the same leverage, so there's less physical travel...
