    I've had mixed experiences with shops which is why I decided to learn how to perform my own maintenance and parts replacement. It's also good knowledge to have in case something goes wrong while...

    Yep. I keep longing for the winter of 2012 which was pretty much uninterrupted riding throughout the winter and much balmier temperatures than we have now.

    I wear it in the office and I don't care. I want people to know that I'm a serious cyclist and I am ready to ride at ANY given moment.

    I have a 42 mile (roundtrip) commute and use it for both training and transportation; the ride would be 28 mi if I went door to door but I put in some extra miles to keep the legs honest. People...

    I've used lots of shorts and most are perfectly fine. A few years back I got a pair of Assos for under $150 from the factory store and still have them and enjoy them. They're not magic but certainly...

    It depends on your preference. I like riding solo most of the time and tend to be very focused on the type of riding/training I'm doing so that keeps it challenging, but riding with people...

    Over the years I've tried all variations of layering and different brands. My favorite by far is the Assos Winter Plus line but make sure not to go spending full retail on it. I like that I have to...

    Glad someone has nice riding weather. I'm not sure how long it will be until I'm back out on the road given the onslaught of snow and now ice. I'm actually enjoying the trainer though especially now...

    In my experience that's common with non enthusiasts who buy from a local shop and just buy a bike.

    it's been a pretty dismal winter riding season (if you can even call it that) given life situations and weather. I've been rebuilding on the trainer though and will start commuting to my new work...

    I don't recall seeing triples on the higher end carbon bikes but there may still be some on the entry level or aluminum bikes. You could go the route of buying the parts separately and assembling the...

    So far it's not bad but the worst is yet to come so we'll see. I can't deal with all the hype about storms nowadays so I haven't been following much; it's the Northeast and snow isn't a freak event...
