New hat from my sweetie.424966
On my touring bike, running the cables up the stem interfered with the handlebar bag mounts.
I'm 6' with a 33" inseam. I've been successful fitting bikes from 55 to 60 cm, but the key measurement is the top tube length.
Checking in from Cowtown, I'm car-lite and have been for six years now. My commute is 15km each way and I have no problem using the roads or bike paths, even in the winter. That said, most of...
First of all, the bike (any bike actually) is fine for a 15 mile commute.
What you need, at a minimum, is to be able to carry whatever you need to take to school, plus
- a good lock (not a cable...
You guys understand it's advertising, right?
Journalism is truly dead.
Looks fine to me.
As you get used to the position and improve your fitness, you will likely need to make some small adjustments but the size of the bike is ok.
Hey, someone has to buy new bikes, otherwise those great deals on used bikes will dry up.
Also, if I was in the market for an aero frame, this would be near the top of the list.
I got rid of my car five years ago and have not regretted it at all. Initially, I started spending some of the money I saved on gas, parking and insurance to buy bike stuff. I was spending about...
Actually, the photo shows 28 spokes front and rear, which is pretty normal.
Lots of wheels come with as few as 16 spokes on the front, 20 on the rear.
The weird paired spoke lacing makes it look...
Argon 18 is a pretty popular brand around here, maybe because Canadian? I dunno, but have to agree that is a cool bike.
Hey guys, the hot or not thread is over here.
My feet are pretty narrow, but I have the same issues with low arches.
I've been comfortable in Sidi, Lake, Shimano, Diadora, Quoc Pham, and Exus shoes, with the secret ingredient: heat moldable...
I made this switch about five years ago, and I have to admit the volume of my riding has decreased substantially as a result. One thing I did was to make sure I had a few reasons to get a ride in,...
I have a set of those rollers, not seeing the problems you report.
You might want to check the bolts aren't over tightened which might bind the bearings.
Welcome to the forum (ya hoser:))
A lot of the people on here have a distinctly non-canadian idea of what winter is like. In my winter riding, I see lots of ice and snow, with stretches of bare...
I had some decent coaching when I was a kid, got assessed by some national level folks looking to develop talent. At the time, I was swimming, playing baseball and running distance, but...
I have a pretty good comparison. My cx bike is a Giant TCX with aluminum frame and fork, main road bike is a Giant TCR advanced with carbon frame and fork - the two bikes have pretty much the same...
I didn't spend anything when I started cycling, my parents gave me an awesome red bike for my birthday.
Of course 50 years later, I have a few more bikes and a lot of clothes, shoes, parts and...
I used to own the exact same bike. It had a single set of eyelets on the rear dropouts and seat stays, which allowed a rear rack to be mounted. It had no problem running 28mm tires, although I...
I mostly ride to the ride. The last one I drove to, I ended up forgetting to bring my water bottles.
Do you prefer strawberry jam or grape jelly with that?
If it were me, I'd go for the trek.
- more aggressive geometry (I had an earlier version of Giant's comfort geometry - the OCR - and it didn't suit me. Note that I ride a TCR now)
