    I think clipless pedals are safer and more reliable, FOR CERTAIN RIDERS, and I feel that their "efficiency" benefit is negligible for MOST commuters.
    For me, that locked in feeling is extremely...

    To be honest, I'm pretty sure that good wine can be grown and produced nearly anywhere. It's just that winemakers prefer living in picturesque, perfect temperature/humidity areas, so these regions...

    First, I took the new "fast" CX bike with slicks up a short but brutal climb, got a flat halfway up and decided to head home. Then I got the "classic" MTB beater more buttoned up("new" stem and front...

    Speaking of damaging wheels, as long as the hook has a good rubber coating it shouldn't cause any scrapes. The two damaging thing I have seen customers do tends to be on wall hooks, not ceiling...

    Width ain't everything. As long as the engine is up to snuff there's no reason a slick 40 couldn't serve you well on many group rides. It's more about the tread/rubber/build for on road speed. There...

    I tend to agree with this, though I don't think 1.75" is *too* bad on the narrow side. Keeping it in the 2" and more side with some nice, smooth rolling tires is definitely an experience though....
