    When I compared Nishiki to LBS prices, I found almost no difference list price to list price. The cheaper priced Nishikis don't have a comparable bike with the LBS brands because they don't make one...

    +1, based on fact. I sold the 93 version of that bike two years ago for around $400. It was Celeste just like the CL bike, but a smaller frame, 51cm, not as much in demand as a 57. If anything,...

    I would recommend widening your search to include adjacent years and search on ebay and CL. Try other communities next to yours on CL. It may take a while to find one, but you will. Also, forget...

    The biggest upgrade bang for me was the fork, low end Manitou to a Fox F100 with Terralogic. But that's expensive. Biggest bang for the buck, upgrade to tubeless. Happened by accident for me, but...

    Yup, the curved downtube gives it away. Actually, a much nicer frame in 06. I picked up one of those 06 Hardrock frames off CL a few years ago. Built it up with leftover parts from my other bikes I...

    My major concern about discs, especially hydraulic disc brakes, is riding in a pace line with these things. Some hydraulic disc setups don't modulate very well. My Avid Juicys absolutely suck...

    I've only had 2 road bike wrecks, but too numerous to count MTB wrecks.
    The second road bike wreck I can't remember at all. I was riding down the beach road in Kill Devil Hill, NC, then I was...

    Actually it sounds like you might be a candidate for a flat bar road bike or a hybrid. Bikes with a more upright riding position are better suited for riding in town in traffic or slower riding on...

    Not only does Shimano support 9 speed and 8 speed, apparently they re-released 7 speed road brake/shifter units. I didn't think that would happen, but it did. As for 10 speed, when Shimano released...

    I don't understand all the fuss about color. You can get ANY color you want. Just buy the bike, then pay the LBS to strip it down to the bone. Take the frame to a powder coating operation, have it...

    Trigger shifters will work with your rear derailer, but I'm not sure about your front derailer. I think they'll work, but I'm not sure how it's set up on that bike. I've worked with the type of...

    I was thinking the same thing. Those LeMond steel frames are sought after. Guys who ride them in our club brag on their bikes. OP if it's your size and you can get it for $400, that would be a...
