    That, and the fact that I don't want to land on CO-2 canisters and an inflator if I crash.

    No fault (aka PIP) covers medical expenses only, not property damage, nor pain and suffering. Many drivers are woefully under-insured on their PIP. You can burn up PIP limits on an ER visit, with...

    Snell certified, and was rated tops in impact protection by Consumer Reports awhile back. Weight is right around 300 grams. Actually lighter than my Lazer Genesis which was 338 grams.

    They're not equivalent. I've done both. Running a marathon under 3 hours is harder than riding a sub-5 hour century.

    i usually put a better tire on the rear, as that one wears more quickly.[/QUOTE]

    When your rear tire fails, you still have steering control over your bike. Lose the front, you don't. Major pucker...

    I had a 2300 RD with Microshift shifters on one of my older bikes. I could keep the shifting acceptable myself, and I'm not the world's greatest wrench. What bothered me more than the shifting were...

    You don't need a 30T granny cog anywhere on Cape Cod. Especially with a 50/34 compact up front. Even an 11-28 is overkill, unless you are just starting out. And in any event, cassettes are easy and...

    I doubt that the dreamer who thinks that a 2011 1.5 with 9 speed Tiagra is worth more now than anyone could have bought it for new, at the end of the model year, will take $485, but hey, it doesn't...

    When you get here, check out the Charles River Wheelmen. They have rides scheduled almost every weekend of the year. No need to join to ride with them, just sign a waiver.

    Some people who use folding bead tires do. One will fit in a jersey pocket. Some people carry one in an empty water bottle, and stick it in the seat tube cage.

    Bike tubes are probably more permeable than the air bladder inside a football. So I'm not sure that comparing the rate of loss has any meaning. A tire filled to 80 psi with co2 will probably flat...
