    What crank are you using? The new Praxis rings appear to have some similarities to the Shimano rings - which should be a good thing. I'm sure they are fine. Praxis is an America company and,...

    I will have to try the olive oil procedure, as I haven't heard of it either. But I too continually fight sweat in the eyes and I've tried about all the headbands. On a fast group ride in hot...

    The earlier S-Works rings did not shift as well as the later rings. By 2011 I believe they were in pretty good shape but if it was me, I would definitely go with the 2015 rings the cost be damned. ...

    I don't think they are robust as something like the Conti 4000 with the vectran layer (same class tire) however, they are robust enough. Carry an extra C02 cylinder and spare tube (2 of each), then...

    I recommend the 720 as my friend has one, and it is extremely versatile. You can do light touring, fast group rides, long distance riding or just puttering about. Good tire options, an endurance...

    With lower priced gas, I drive to more places and ride. This is especially true for riding events in surrounding states. It may not actually increase my monthly milage average but it broadens the...

    My recommendation is to buy new. The price of lower end carbon bikes is very competitive. And if it has Shimano 105, it'll be knocking on the door of the best available. Other than a few grams,...
