    I would say more backward, racing to the bottom. If you've never ridden a really nice pair of leather chamois shorts that's a shame.

    Coincidentally, I saw Grant this morning. He's looking a little sad, in need of some love. Maybe the BFC&V needs to get together and send him a postcard, ...seriously. I think Riv is a lonely...

    You east coasters are cute. We see Grant out on his bike ever once in a while, drop by his retail store when the wife and I are out at happy hour....

    The argument is the correct way is to wrap is outward, not inward, because that's the tension your hands naturally put on the
    bar, hence you tighten the wrap as you ride. Additionally, you wrap...

    Easy, don't over think it. Get a used hardtail mountain bike on CL, eBay, LBS, whatever and just beat the heck out of it riding. The added weight/rolling resistance will just get you into condition...

    It's an important lesson. "Job security" is an illusion, and too many people find this out later in life when their options are genuinely limited. Take this lesson to heart, the question for you is...

    I suspect the reach is going to cause you problems regardless, perhaps new problems in the shoulder and neck, but easy enough...go ride a 60cm at a Trek dealer.

    As you know, the Roadeo is their light-weight club racer, "our answer to speedy carbon road bikes". I think it's the only bike that has published weight specs. I've ridden and picked up a few of...

    I wish Grant's business well. but his bikes are just too overbuilt and heavy for twice the price as we see it. It's ironic given he lives in an area where even casual bikers are riding 14-15 mph on...

    I added a full carbon Roubaix to my stable a few years ago. Gorgeous bike, but it doesn't get ridden much. I've gravitated back to
    my '80s bikes. Don't pull the trigger on what you're selling too...

    I have them on a day touring MTB that's pretty tricked out. Trekking bars are fairly stupid, but I like my set-up for fun rides with the family. Essentially, they give you the option of keeping...

    Frankly, it's on/off for me. As soon as my run is done, or morning ride - it's off. I'm not accessing zippers. It is small and flimsy, which is why it is good. If you are planning on digging...

    Hey, I own one of those. I use it more for running pre-dawn. The pictures are deceiving, it fits up on the chest, not full body -- but perhaps that's becuase I am 6', 46" chest. Actually, that good,...

    I alternated between a Mark II long cage and Blue Line GT; performance was the same for me. If you are buying the Mark II you are paying for the look, perhaps longevity.
