    I don't have the tractor legs you have and I'm fat, so take that into account. I run my SS with a 32T front and switch the rear cog anywhere from 17 to 22. Mostly on a 20 though. I tried to go...

    I'm fat and not in the greatest shape so I run a 22/30/40 up front and a 11-36 in the back on my Yelli. I use 32-20 mostly on my single speed Specialized Carve, but will switch to 22T for hillier...

    1x11 seems to be all the rage now-a-days. As for us guys who do not have super deep pockets and mere mortal legs 3x9, 3x10, and 2x10 all still work great.

    I struggle with bouncing sometimes when pedaling hard on pavement. Concentrating on spinning instead of mashing smooths it out.

    WTB uses UST bead shape but is not true UST because you still need to use tape and sealant to seal the spoke holes and rim joint. I've had good results with various tubeless ready, UST, and...

    makes sense. My frame doesn't have the mounting tab to stabilize the FD. I used the included bolt and nutted it to secure the FD to the bracket. I guess the Alivio bracket was strong enough. I'm...

    Too much flex in Shimano XT E-type FD

    What can I do to get my shifting up front to not suck? I went from a fairly good shifting Alivio 3x to an XT 3x so I can go 10x in the rear. The new XT bracket moves around a lot and I am unable to...

    Our local race series has a fatbike category. I've gotten my butt handed to me by guys/gals on fatbikes in the summer. Maybe a lighter wheelset and rubber for the summer months?

    HS1 rotors are an upgrade. I use BB7 brakes with Avid levers on my commuter/tourer, they work just fine slowing down me(250#), the bike (31#) and my son in a bike trailer(70#) with 160mm rotors.
