    Yeah, about that fork. It's brand new, it's from Nashbar, it's damaged. There is zero reason you should even question it, replace or refund. Unless you're one of those "I love faceplant at 30mph"...

    When dry they might be crap flickers. When riding in the yuck, they are definitely mud grabbers. I think they would also be a little more challenging to install on bikes with recessed nut brakes. In...

    And after a while, you will probably spend what you would have paid for a proper cable cutter on those dumb little cutting wheels! A proper cable cutter is one of the basics.

    For $300 you shouldn't need to do a thing to it, IMHO. But if you like it and it fits, go for it.

    I agree that if you have t at least test ridden a recumbent, you should at least include that in your search for a comfortable ride. Not all my rides are on a recumbent, but my best ones are.
