    I wouldn't run friction bar ends on a 10 spd drivetrain. I'm sure someone has done it, and liked it, but I've found that I can't quickly and accurately shift in friction mode on my 10 spd drivetrain,...

    Honestly the similarities, in my eyes, stop at the fact they are both steel bikes. Apples and oranges in my book. The Marin can be made to do much of what the Clem can do, but it will never do it as...

    Of our rims, the Aileron is my favorite to build. I think you'll really like how they build, and even more, how they ride.

    That has to be the highest BB I've ever seen. Maybe the overall strangest geometry... I can't quite figure it out.

    A $850 frameset is still easily a $1,200+ bike... quite a bit above "bargain bin." I'm also not convinced this is for "less serious" riders as several people have said. Different needs/riding style...

    The key to the A23 is to use a thin tubeless tape (as we recommend), even with tubes. Thick rim tape, like Velox, will make tire mounting difficult due to the tubeless web design. With two layers of...

    The ones I've seen have all been low end or department store bikes, probably early to mid 90's. Nothing special. If you have one you'd like information on, pics help!

    I would make sure the cables move freely, to start. They do have a little heavier feel, but shouldn't be difficult.

    I'll "third" this recommendation. That said, I find CR-18's and most older Sun rims to be notoriously difficult to mount certain tires, so YMMV. I haven't tried that specific combo myself.
