    . So, what you are telling me is that a seat tube at 72.5 deg vs a seat tube at 73.5 deg is going to have the same effective bb to handlebar effective length on a horizontal plane? Then you have to...

    I don't care how they work, I want to be able to exhange parts between my bikes. Disc brakes ruin that idea. Of course, like big companies such as apple, millions of dollars are to be made by...

    McMaster Carr sells all types of tubing. They should have something. Just needs to have a slightly larger

    you never feel like you are beating the hill. It always wins. It's just by "how much". You may feel like you are making no progress. The real test is when you ride with your friends & they can no...

    The no one is averaging 18mph on one of those bikes! All bikes are different. Most of us racing bike snobs think we can't be seen on a fat tire upright city bike. I don't know about you...I ate...

    Some companies keep fork offset measurements under wraps. I passed a frame up last month, for this reason. Often times the fork can sell for as much as the frame. At that point you've just pissed...

    So, let me get this straight. You just paid less for your car than you did for your bicycle? (Office chatter)

    I don't know the answer, off the top of my head. If you have a local shop that has a lot of spare parts or an older mechanic you might be able to ask. Otherwise you may need to speak with the mfg....

    you can change that to "were". I can't afford to support the new race bike habit, anymore.

    Yes, when you have a bike that is that beautiful, everyone wants to know what you paid for it. Except those who know.... The Funny part of it is, you could tell them $2000 & they'd be no less...

    I'm getting the feeling you don't want to hear this? I've owned the quoted $7000 bike. Actually, a bit more. I loved riding such a sexy machine but, I've come to terms that it was highly...

    As I stated, the molding is going to be the big cost & that is likely all done with CNC machinery, these days. Relatively inexpensive over the haul. They lay up the fabric, epoxy, put in the...

    so, what do you think it cost to build a set of Campagnolo boras? I'd bet the freehub body is the expensive part? What does that cost Campagnolo? They aren't making it on machines in Italy, are...

    I don't know what it actually comes out to but, I do know this... Carbon fiber weave is pretty damn inexpensive. The epoxies aren't going to be that much, either. The Ti parts are small & are...
