  1. Vittoria Crono CS 320 TPI Valve Replacement

    I purchased these thinking they were the new red Vittoria valves. They are not. I need a shorter valve so that it fits into my disc. I've been using 32mm valves. How can I replace these?

    Greetings gentlemen,

    I have a 56 2013 Specialized Tarmac Pro with Sram Red. I need to swap out the cranks from 172.5 to 165. The website states the BB is "OS Integrated". What is that?

    Sounds like sound advice to me.

    It looks like if you were to go into a tucked aggressive position you might flip over the top of the bike. I don't think a longer stem will fix it, rather a larger...

    2014 Felt TK1

    Not too many details yet, hoping someone else may be able to chime in. The new Felt TK1 seems to have lost the "sprint" line while they kept the "endurance" frame. The non-endurance frame also...

    By no means was I ever planning of doing a 200 with anything bigger than a 52x13. However, I do plan on over-gear training on larger than 52x13 to develop more power to make easier gears easier.

  15. How do you know when to replace tubular tires?

    The answers i've received from the locals have been less than optimal - either wait until your tire flats or it comes off the wheel.

    Is there anything more pro active I can do to know when to...

    What are you guys using to do solo jobs? Is the Hirame the only way to go? Is there anything cheaper and equally reliable?

    Yikes, .3-.4 is substantial. I didn't think it would be that much. That's promising to hear.

    I have the same supersonics and tubes on both tires so I only displayed it once but multiplied by two in the calculations:

  23. Will adding 300g (.66lbs) to my wheelset make me slower?
