    The best advice I ever got when I got back into biking a few years ago was that I wasn't so much buying a bike as I was buying a relationship with a shop. Fact of the matter is there are a lot of...

    People pay more than that for a single World Series or Super Bowl ticket. A year's cable bill is more than that for most people. How many hours use and enjoyment will you get from your bike?

    Yes. You'll see a lot of nice bikes in cat 5 races, but then again the faster riders at club rides also tend to have pretty similar equipment. Just stands to reason that people who like to go fast...
