never ridden a hybrid, but yeah, I can't see putting alot of money in a hybrid. I think it's different if you're looking at a full roadbike, but certainly at some point cost increase is out of line...
that has to be uncomfortable on the earlobes if you wear for a sustained period
I've bought a bunch of the chinese made jerseys from various vendors on ebay. Quality is surprisingly good. I wouldn't buy cheap cycling shorts tho.
We need a new thread "Is Shimano better than SRAM and Campagnollo" ;)
At these levels of competition there are no friends. They will screw each other over whatever it takes to stay on top. To think otherwise is to live in the land of unicorns and rainbows. Not...
and all made in Italy Campagnolo components are loving packed by beautiful Italian virgins.......;)
whole nitrogen in car tires is ridiculous, it's another excuse to get you in the shop. It's use in bicycles would be even more ridiculous as everyone would need a tank of nitrogen to inflate the...
this makes no sense. The connections are wired NOT wireless. radio interference has nothing to do with this.
Guess, I don't get it, NO ONE is forcing anyone to use Di2. I did 5k miles this year, probably 3500 on Di2 and 1500 on Dura Ace 9000. I suspect the same thing went on when brifters replaced downtube...
electric all the way. No more issues with cable replacement stretch etc. If you can afford it and ride alot you won't regret it.
I paid $200 each for my fittings. It took around 2.5 hrs the first time and around 2 hrs second bike. It's time consuming and some of the best money spent by me for cycling. NO issues with comfort...
if you don't get any precision bike fit done (it's worth the $$), at least have them sit you in the mold to determine the width of your "sit" bones to determine optimum saddle width.
Have around 2500 miles on my romin evo I mounted on my R5, I found the fizik saddle to be unusable the first hour ride. Haven't looked back, I've got a romin, not sure what version on my s-works...
so I guess the takeaway from the injury thread. Those people who are not thinned from the herd via darwinism eventually end up Tri-riders? ;)
the downside if you don't continue to get rained on during the ride you'll smell like a urinal at any place you stop or when you get to your destination.
I'll pull over, whizz on the nearest bush...
zipp says their wheels have been tested and will have no problem with sustained braking BUT they have a 250 pound weight limit.
at 265 pounds he really can't go carbon can he, I know zipp has a 250# limit, price notwithstanding.
yep, I"m with everyone else, foreign object embedded or perhaps a bit of the cord hitting the tube. I've never had an issues with GP 4000s so far.
First is in the middle of doing silver comet trail and second is just after a ride.
also, very excited I just met my goal 5k miles in 2014!
thanks very much! Hopefully I'll never need to do it!
So I carry the KMC missing link 11 in my bag. I've never had a chain break, but a guy with a ten speed broke his chain in the midst of a metric century and he used one of mine allowing him to finish...
the 41 keeps on delivering! :)
I ride 100-105 psi, I weigh 160 pounds. No issues with flats or anything. WHen I started riding last year I was running 120 or so but the lower pressure is definitely much more road friendly.
4593.8 ytd, 6025 miles total since I started riding in late Sept. 2013.
