    You aren't the only one seeing this from Castelli. I was in the market for a new kit and almost went with a Castelli one but every place I went had reviews about how the stitching was coming out. Not...

    How can you stand having to raise your thumb up that high to reach the lever every. single. time. No way Jose :)

    Unless you've never used Campy Ergo shifters before.. then you might want to try them first somehow. The thumb shifter is not for everyone. I personally couldn't stand having to use that.

    That has to be the most retro-grouch, troll-baiting comment I've ever heard. Well done.

    The cleats come off the shoes, just have him unscrew them so you can put them on your shoes when you get them. Those cleats are ~$30 in store, they aren't special but they also aren't free :)

    Just ask if you can test ride it. No bike is a good bike if it doesn't fit. And half pedaling down the sidewalk doesn't always give you a clear indication of what it will feel like. He may ask you to...

    That bike is bomb proof dude. It can handle you no problem.

    Also, it rides and handles more like a mid range 18lbs bike than the entry level 22 pounder it is. And it looks good too.

    That was my exact first road bike. It's a great bike but a little high $400. I got mine for $350 three years ago. But if you're ok spending $400 and it fits then get it, again it's a nice riding...

    It's a shame if that's the only time you'll ride because you'll be all alone and miss out on the many fantastic group rides available. That being said I love cycling here in the Tampa area, there are...

    I've always been in the weird predicament that a 25mm setback is almost too far and 0mm is too short. This is still within the saddle's markings on the clamps so it's all good. thanks for the...
