    The ES will fit 40's. I've had 35's on mine and there was a decent amount of space still left. I've got 32's on it now with fenders but it's tight.

    OP, I don't think you'll notice enough difference going to a size 25 than what you'd want, but most "racing" bicycles can't accept tires larger than 25 so it's really a moot point.

    I'd love to see some actual references for this statement. I've read on Bicycle Quarterly that aero drag is a non factor at the speeds that bicycles typically go.

    Well, I've got one bike with the Grand Bois Cypress which is not the light versions and they have worn great. No flats and I've got probably 2-3k miles on them now. I've not seen any limitation...

    Now is a good time to get left over models from bike shops. My friend just bought a Orbea Orca 105 for $1100. That's about half off. It's a couple years old but brand new. I'd suggest asking your...

    What's wrong with your aluminum frame? The best riding bike I've ever had was an aluminum bike. The worst riding bike I had was also an aluminum bike. If the ride is fine, save your money. You...

    Only tires I'll buy. Love these tires. Just as fast as 23/25's but significantly more comfortable.

    Same reason I don't leave on the license plate frame from car dealers. I don't like providing free advertising.

    That's a great build. Top quality. I love those Frog pedals. Haven't found any that are as easy to use as those. I've got those handlebars on my mountain bike which I use for easy trails and...

    I like the looks of this tire. I also ride a CX bike on the road and typically use Compass Bicycle Stampede Pass 32's. Compass Bicycles: 700C Tires. Great tire and same qualities that you're...

    I think lighter wheels will help climbing and acceleration, but on flat ground, I don't think they help at all. Aero wheels may help a little, but getting into a more aero position will help more...

    Those types of bikes are specific to their intended use. Kinda like a downhill mountain bike. Could you ride it on regular trails, sure, but it's not going to be quite as the standard mountain...

    If you want gravel, go out to Tillamook Forest. TONS of it out there and on the weekend, there is a bunch of it that's gated off and nobody is out there. I used to ride a dual sport motorcycle out...

    Same here, but I've also seen a dude pick a bike up leaning against the store and threw it in the back of a pickup truck and was gone faster than anyone even knew what happened. At least with some...

    I can understand that. I have that mindset depending on the bike I'm riding. If I'm riding my Soma ES that cost me around $1000 to build, then I'm not that uncomfortable locking it up outside for a...

    Exactly. Excellent lock but I'd never trust it for longer than a few minutes. It can be defeated but requires special tools to do so. Very light and stays out of the way. Con is it's expensive. ...

    I carry a TiGr lock. https://tigrlock.com/

    Not something I'd leave my bike sitting for more than a few minutes, but going into the bathroom wouldn't bother me.

    I hope someone can describe it. I took some cycling classes and that's one of the things they worked with us on by using a power tap to make sure we were putting the same amount of power throughout...

    Just like most every bike, they are made out of Taiwan. The bikes are good quality and are pretty unique. I wouldn't say they are a great value though as you can get a similarly equipped bike for...

    This is totally my opinion and take it for what it's worth. Which isn't much. I've dealt with Performance Bike a lot and while I don't have a problem with them, I would have a problem with them if...

    Performance is like buying a TV at Walmart. You can get a good price and plenty of selection but they won't know anything about audio/visual equipment. Best to buy from a real bike store, but if...

    I agree with the other posters. $20 is not cheap for what you bought, but unless they were holding a *** to your head, you didn't have to pay it.
