    Sorry, forgot to mention. I'll be staying right off Hollywood BLVD just a few blocks from Amoeba (those are the only landmarks I know). I'll have my car with me, but I'd rather not travel too far, so...

    San Jose is definitely becoming more and more bike friendly. The only drag about living here car free is that it just isn't that pleasant to ride around in due to it's lack of charm and abundance of...

    Alternatives to drop bars

    I'll be ordering a new SSCX frame in the next few days. My intentions with it vary from racing to singletrack to rainy winter commuting. Every build needs bars, and after riding standard drops for...

    If you're looking to lighten your load then I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands. As far as swapping, I don't have much I can part with but I've got a little. What sort of stuff are you...

    I'm also curious about this route, but more about the way you folks take to get out of The City, and onto HWY 1 in the first place. When I lived in SC, I would ride up and down the coast all the...

    We're both wrong. I wasn't paying attention when I posted, but this particular crankset comes with a Truvativ (still Sram, technically) powerspline BB. So although is isn't square taper, it still has...
  12. Where can I do lite MTB single track or CX riding in the Bay

    I tried CX racing for the first time this year and loved it. Once the season is over, I'd still like to do more of that style riding (basically off roading with drops). Where in the East/South Bay...

    I posted this over in CX as well, but figured maybe some of the 'cool kids' over in this forum could offer some insight. Thanks in advance.

  16. What gear ratio do you like for a SSCX bike?

    I'm looking to build up a SSCX frame to race with a little at the end of this season, but also for some single track riding and 'round town commuting. The UK manufacturer On-One has a model I like...

    First of all, what is your budget? Online, it's looking like that Kona Jake is a $1500 ride. There are other bikes out there that are cheaper. And while I can't say whether or not they are better...

    I can get through a fifty mile ride with just two 16 oz. bottles, but I'm pretty parched during the last five miles, and typically need to down another 30 oz. once I'm done.
