    When this thread started I still had hair on my head. I love V-Brakes, no annoying brake chatter on carbon forks.

    If you're in Calgary you should check out bikebike on 17th ave. You'll get excellent service. In Calgary, the pathways get pretty bumpy from the winter so you'll want some fatter rubber and even...

    While I don't know of a straight touring club, there are a few clubs which focus on recreational riding. I would check out the Elbow Valley Cycling Club at http://www.elbowvalleycc.org/ . And the...

    Mavic Open Pro rims with Ultegra Hubs. I don't have a cassette on the unused wheel, I found it quite easy to move cassettes between wheels.

    Order from England. Usually a better deal than the US. I like http://www.chainreactioncycles.com . Sometimes your lbs will be able to get parts in on a better deal.

    Riding a bike isn't that paleo, I think you need to give it up and run barefoot instead. Eat berries and small animals you find along the way. Avoid large cats that might eat you.

    Not me, I love clipless 3 seasons, but on those really cold days there is no way. On the plus side the pathways are usually pretty clear when it's below -20c (-4f)

    For males, it depends on the distance only. The more testosterone, the more power for shorter high speed races, however it is a trade off for endurance. Young guys have more of the hormone. I recall...

    Haha 50 F is a summer morning up here. and the daytime high for nice weather fall/spring riding.

    The mixed blessing about Calgary is the chinook. It's wonderful when it melts the snow and drys out the roads, and you can ride your road bike in warm clothing and enjoy a sunny day. It sucks when...

    I don't think it's worth the money to buy winter cycling shoes. I just wear my hiking boots. If something goes wrong, you want to be able to walk in the shoes, and you don't want your feet to get...

    I'm using an old Rigid MTB for winter commuting. Over the years all the components have died so it is now a fixed gear ride. I've had everything go wrong in Calgary's winter climate except a fixed...

    My freehub: Froze on one of coldest days of the year -30 or so. Going downhill coasting caused the freeze-up - not fun, but I was near work so I pushed.

    Most trekking bars are designed to fit ATB and Hybrid shifters, brakes, and grips. Most also have a 24.5mm stem clamp size, which is again in the ATB/Hybrid area. I found them comfortable with plenty...

    It won't because even though the tire deforms on the ground more with less pressure, you're still dealing with a similar amount of rubber going around. The thick tread on the bottoms of tires won't...
