    I don't know that I've ever seen specific instructions from trek on it. Just ask yourself if you would grease the center of the handlebar before mounting it in the stem. That's sort of the situation...

    Well, I thought I had a picture of the car setup.

    But basically, it's just what you said. I have a hatchback (Pontiac Vibe, which is basically a Toyota Matrix) and I fold one rear set down. It has...

    Sorry for the massively delayed response. I don't come here a whole lot...

    Anyhow, the number one mistake I see people make with the single bolt compression style posts is to throw lots of grease...
  4. In 2 years of selling and working on lots of...

    In 2 years of selling and working on lots of Treks with single bolt seat clamps in a very busy shop, I got maybe 1 every 3-4 months that would have some slippage. I've put lots of miles on some harsh...

    Domane 5.9 long term-ish review

    I say long term-ish because I've had it for nearly half a year, but have also been recovering from an ACL surgery I had at the end of June and haven't put as many road miles on it as I would have...

    Geez, I thought Texas was pretty flat, but my metric century a couple of days ago had 1,500 ft of climbing.
  8. To be slightly more specific, I think some folks...

    To be slightly more specific, I think some folks like the barometric altimeters for riding because it gives decently accurate data on the fly, particularly if one is doing lots of climbing and wants...

    I have run into a truck that turned in front of me on a morning commute. So I've been there. I know the risks.

    I'm not saying it's "physically" safer on streets than my particular MUP. I'm saying...

    Campag, prior to my accident, I did lots of miles on roads, including a good summer of 50 mile round trip commuting on roads that most cyclist would avoid like the plague. I can truly say I regularly...
  11. I don't know why I thought I could ride on the MUP...

    Yeah, I know. It's another one of those threads.

    Long story short: I had ACL replacement surgery a few months ago and have only been allowed to go back on pavement for the last week. My initial...

    Holy cow, that is one of the most perfect pieces of sensationalist yellow journalism I have ever had the chance to read. I mean, the cold facts probably point to the cyclist being at fault, but wow,...

    At an earlier point, they did cut off several distributors and kept it to a select few U.S. companies. If I remember correctly, I think J&B did not make the cut while QBP did. But at a later point,...

    I forget the date, but this was before this season started. I was working at a shop in Dallas when it all went down. I don't know how the big guys feel, but it's been hard on smaller dealer. We even...

    I will second the DeFeet wool gloves. Giro makes some "more stylish" options for not much more.

    I have had lots of cool to cold weather gloves, but the most surprising performers were the...

    Not really. Shimano is direct only now, so it should be the same for most everyone depending on your buying power. If you have the cash to buy in bulk and buy complete sets, it's going to be cheaper....

    Absolutely. I bought my Domane thinking it could pull double duty after crashing a commuter spec cross bike. But now I don't even want to jack with fenders on the domane and think I might end up...

    Curious if you were running these tubeless with the Bontrager rim strip system. Hutchison doesn't list Bontrager wheels for some reason, but I don't see why they wouldn't work.

    It's not a horrible color, it's just that we are on the far back end of the "murdered out" look. I bought an equally "stealthy" bike after telling myself I wouldn't buy one because it was boring, but...

    Geez, 6 pages of this and still there are sheeple chugging their poison cokes because the "industry" tells them it's safe. I learned a LONG time ago that coke is only interested in my wallet and not...

    I'm actually really surprised to see that. How is the rear clearance? Stock rims? I think I saw a shot of someone putting some "big" 28's on it and that seemed really tight. I think I'd be pretty...

    Agreed. I edited that one too late at night. Rushed the pictures and thought I didn't have a clear side shot.

    Another boring all black bike for people to complain about, plus terrible staging. I aim to please those who aim to complain.

    But seriously, this bike is awesome. 16 pounds 5 ounces with pedals,...
