    In 1985 this frame and an iconic Springsteen hit were Born in the USA.

    I used a B17 for a few years. When I first got the B17 my handlebars were about an inch lower than the saddle and all was well. Over time as I became more fit I moved my handlebars progressively...

    I have two '82 Treks with this fork. I've ridden about 15k miles on those bikes combined over the past 3 - 4 years. I also see a lot of other Treks of this "death fork" era still on the road....

    I think this is key for a lot of randonneurs. Going faster on the bike is all about power/weight ratio. If you're racing, then you've probably already got your weight low enough and it makes sense to...

    Bandera, I'm wondering how you think your Stanyan compares with classic steel bikes like your '74 Raleigh and your '77 Trek? That is, other than...

    The Campeur is a touring frame designed to carry a heavy load. I'll admit I've never ridden one, but I've ridden similar bikes (Long Haul Trucker, Riv Atlantis). Without a load, they tend to ride...

    Are you kidding me?!? That thing would rock on a brevet! It has a killer head light, and it's so low-trail that it has negative trail (maybe you call that "lead" instead of "trail").

    Okay, I'll...

    In 2008 I did STP in one day. Prior to the spring of '08 when I started training for it, I had been commuting by bike for a few years but had never ridden much over 20 miles at a time. To train, I...

    I wouldn't say the Cambium eats shorts (gotta like that phrase), but it is definitely a little grabbier than a leather Brooks saddle. Mine seems to be getting less grabby with use.
