    Perfect. Thank you everyone! I have not seen any problems with them coming loose or anything, just wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing. I have not done locktite, I am greasing the threads...
  2. How tight do you screw the SPD cleats into the soles?

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to clipless, and loving it. I have googled this and cannot find any good information. It feels like a silly question, but I want to make sure my equipment lasts. I had no idea...

    I was going to comment and then I saw that everyone saw the same thing before me. So another $.02 for raising the saddle. You are very flexed at the knee at the bottom of the stroke. But then again,...

    The hills are not terrible. None make an official climb rating. None in my group are extraordinary athletes or pros, and everyone made it up without a problem - although there was the occasional...

    Gettysburg battle grounds

    I just discovered this little gem, great for a leisurely ride, if you like to take in some sightseeing and exploring with your biking. A little over 20 miles with lots of short but decently steep...

    Most of my biking is short touring routes on local and regional trails, so I wear running or hiking shoes for the frequent stops to take in nature and hidden spots. Works OK - you're not going to get...

    I recently went through something similar. I feel your pain (I literally did - road rash ain't fun). But there's nothing like a crash that you and the bike recover from without lasting damage to help...

    How about a cyclocross bike? It's a nice in-between, no?

    Thank you, that's very insightful and useful Chaadster. It's the frame size that was the big concern right now, because to change that I only have another week or so, and it's good to know that the...

    Handedness/dominance applies to lower extremities and to most activities. Ambipedalism (love the term, plan to steal it) can no doubt be trained, if you really feel it's a worthwhile skill, I guess....

    Comment on my fit pic please?

    Hi everyone,
    I have asked a lot of questions here, and I appreciate everyone's input. I am still trying to decide if the frame I got is the right one for me - more and more the answer seems to be...

    My first crash was as a total newb, but entirely another rider's fault. Riding down a narrow trail, behind a corner in comes this pro-looking dude (a MAMIL on an expensive bike) from the other...

    BTW, there is something weird about the measurements I get from the competitivecyclist.com calculator: everything makes sense, except that, while I am supposedly on an effective TT that's 1.5 cm too...

    I am relatively inexperienced and riding on the busy roads around here at rush hour makes me nervous. Most of my riding is on trails. So yes, I do it often. I used to keep a rack on the trunk of my...
  16. What's in a centimeter (or, is there a fitter in the house?)

    Hi everyone,
    I've been on an interesting journey of learning about the proper fit and the right way to ride a bike. So, after trying a couple of bikes, figuring out my correct measurements,...

    Good. Feeling good while riding is where it's at!
    One other thing I learned recently btw, is that touching the ground for balance is never a factor in fitting. I long held the newb belief that it's...

    Having struggled recently with making sure I got the right fit, I have learned a few things in the process. One is that the SO height does not matter THAT much. C-T size for your measurements, and...

    Thanks, that makes perfect sense. However, I am learning that I was a totally clueless noob… The top tube length on the 56 actually IS my correct size. And… my saddle needs to be a LOT higher from...

    The manager at Performance is actually going to do a fitting for me. Apparently he offers this, but no one in the store bothered to mention it... I can easily lift the seat up, and I asked them to...

    Quick follow-up: so, on the new bike, to be able to get my toes on the ground, I need to set the saddle noticeably lower than the handlebar. That doesn't seem right! Is it as simple as shortening the...

    Shout out to Performance on this one. They may not have the professional high level personalized fitting and individual customer care, but they immediately took a 56 bike off the rack, let me try it...

    Thanks guys. Is the Fuji recommendation for the SOH just legal defensive approach then? It's funny, using the competitivecyclist.com fit calculator, it seems that the top tube for the 54 is exactly...
  24. long legs and cursory fitting by the LBS = trouble

    Hi everyone,
    I need some advice on making sure I have the right frame size. I have a new Fuji Cross 3.0. I bought it at my local Performance shop, where the "fitting" consists of: "straddle it. Is...

    Thank you everyone. That definitely convinces me it's not an issue. And Aaron, thanks for pointing out I have big feet, makes me feel manly :) I think the fit is nice otherwise. It's my first aero...
