    That sounds like me, except that seven years and 127 races later my goal is still to finish in the top half of a race. I got ninth out of 16 in a Clydesdale race a couple of years ago, but that's as...

    Down here in NW Oregon, I have used the GP 4 Seasons as my winter tire and switched to GP 4000S for the summer, though to be honest I think the GP 4 Seasons feels at least 90% as sporty as the GP...

    That amount of tread is negligible. It's like the piece of parsley some restaurants put on your steak. The GP 4 Seasons are great tires. The puncture protection is very good (at least for the...

    If comfort is your goal and you have a bike that feels the way you want it to, fit is pretty simple. Imagine a triangle formed by the saddle, the bottom bracket and the handlebars. Make the second...

    This.

    If you want to obsess about it, take note of how you get the more significant scratches and dings. Some of them make for good memories.

    I've got a 48-gallon yard debris can that's about half full of branches from the Douglas Firs behind my house, but this picture from my daughter's school is more dramatic.

    I was actually wrong about the size of the bigger tires here. They were 26x1.75 (~45mm). I just looked them up because the pictures seemed to show more difference than I would have expected with...

    What I thought was interesting was that in all three cases where the front fender crumpled it was because a stick got caught between the fender stay and the spokes, so the clearance between the...

    I do have a picture of another bike that shows the sort of curve mismatch I mention above. This is my LHT with 26x1.25 (~30mm) tires using SKS P50 fenders.

    If your various uses are seasonal, and maybe even if it isn't, I would just remove the fenders when the bike is going to see mostly off-road use. Putting fenders on and taking them off doesn't take...

    If you have a geared wheelset, you can just get a single cog and spacers. That's what I use for SSCX racing. Unless you want to do fixed gear riding there's really no reason to put a...

    The newer Shimano cranks are using weird chainrings I think. You can use a Shimano 6750 34T ring: Universal Cycles -- Shimano FC-6750 Ultegra Double Chainrings 10spd
