I am a contributing member. What exactly is your point?
Saw that. Also saw 'requires upgraded membership'. I may have that, but as you alluded to, it seems unlikely that many will see it, let alone respond.
If I no one suggests otherwise, I'll post...
Is there a place, other than here, that I should post a thread looking to trade road bike for road bike? I would like people with road bikes to see the thread, so this seems reasonable. Should it...
1984 - 1990 ET nuke. 86 - 90 on the USS South Carolina (RIP) out of Norfolk. Great Lakes - Orlando - Balston Spa prior to the ship.
Thanks so much! I really like the bars I switched to (some sort of Ritchey) but I do think I need to move the shifters just a hair higher. I'll work on the rest.
Thanks again for all of your...
I like handlebar bags, and particularly like that one. Very nice.
Thanks. I don't have a problem with experimenting, but I wanted opinions, since I don't know bike geometry well. Your suggestions give me some more ideas.
Thanks. I'm trying to avoid paying $200 or so for that if I can.
Thank you. I've been trying to understand stack and reach. That helps.
I don't understand much about bike geometry, and was wondering if someone who does could compare these two bikes and give me feedback. The first is a 2011 BMC Streetracer, which I own in 57 cm size:...
Not sure, but what year is your Jake? My 2010 came with 35 Conti Speed Kings, and it could have taken wider.
I love the Rando Pros. I have the 700x32 on my Kona Jake (have for quite a while) and they perform great. I may change next time, but that is because I like to try different things, not because of...
FWIW, I rode the 2010 Jake in the Mayor's Twilight Ride last night here in Columbus. It is 25 miles around town in the evening, on all types of roads, including some brick. I chose the Jake over my...
Not really, but I ride mine as a road bike / all arounder. It is fantastic for that. For my uses, I've added a rack. I also changed the seat. I really haven't done much else, except for lights...
Those actually do appear to be the stock wheels, Andy. I have a 2010 Jake, and it came with those crazy blue wheels.
Great choice OP! I like mine a lot.
Looks like a great bike. I also have the SR02, and like it quite a lot. I love the way BMCs look, so that doesn't hurt either :)
Me too. It is very nice.
I think that Trek 850 for $70 looks great. It would probably be my pick for riding around a college campus. I have a Trek 850 with street-oriented tires (some can be had cheap) and it's great.
Thanks Siu? I recommended the same thing 3 minutes before :)
Which KEEN sandal is that, and how do you like them? I have Daytonas in 10.5, and Newport 2's in 11.5. I think I need a larger size in the closed-toe sandals. I would like to get a pair of their...
I use an Ekobrew insert with whatever coffee I choose. That way you can find one that you really like, and it's about 1/10 the price. Make sure the Ekobrew works with your machine first though. I...
Hand pain can be a fit issue. Different grips may help. Hybrid bars don't offer a lot of hand positions, which can be a problem.
