    Threadless, so its a 31.8mm diameter, right? Either way, you should fine. It's the bars, if you can squeeze 'em together like that. I go with sawed-off drops. At first, the reach felt too short,...

    Carbon and steel is good for dampening the road, it will probably just be more flexy than all carbon fiber. Not that there's anything wrong with that - I like a nice steel ride. When I got my first...

    Yeah, something like that is way to big. Right now I'm running 44x16, and I'm thinking of going smaller... maybe 39x15 or 16. That would be better with the hills I usually negotiate. I also run a...

    Well, if this happened while you were applying forward pressure on the pedals, then either the cog threads got stripped or like Kiecker said, you unweighted your rear wheel. Usually, you know you...

    That's what I roll on the back of my bike... cheap and strong, I think. But not flashy if you care about that. Use a Dura Ace lockring.
