    Another good tire from Freedom WTB is the Ryder. I have the 700x32s on my Kona, they also have a 700x38 that might be a better option. They have flat protection, roll fast on pavement and have some...

    This advice is spot on, I think either of them would be a better option than the Novara Buzz (at full price).

    Definitely. If designers need to hit an overall price point for the bike and spend more on the frame, they have to cut back on other areas.

    Personally I don't think the parts on that Jamis are...

    That's just a gorgeous looking bike, well done! I'm really pleased with the paint and logos of this years Jamis lineup, I've seen a few at our local shop and they look great!

    Nice tires, platform...

    I agree, my first bike since being a kid had a frame that was too large. It was hard to notice when I was testing it but became a real comfort issue after I owned it for a while. I ended up selling...

    Then the only difference you have left to consider is the price, and you should go with the Kona and use the money you save on other things you need or enjoy.

    Kona makes a good bike. I have a...

    I'm going to go against the grain here and suggest you sell the bike (as is, unmodified) and get a new one that you can test ride first. It's the only way you'll really be happy with the results.

    I wouldn't buy any book for the kinds of work you are planning to do, online resources are better. Use this:

    Park Tool Co. ParkTool Blog

    and search youtube for videos when you need more info...

    I didn't mean to give you the impression the 32s won't fit, they definitely will. I just meant to provide some background on why the 32s you rode earlier were more like 29s in real life. You can...

    Given what you said about where you are going to be riding, wider tires might be nice to have. I'm a 700x35 guy but I thought I'd try 32s on my latest set and I ride in similar conditions as you. ...

    You can get a good idea of your tire options by looking at their website, I've never seen any of the stores near me carry anything that wasn't on the site. The only way you might get the same brand...

    The montare definitely has better components, but it is used and I'm on the internet and have no idea what condition they're in. I assume they're fine. You didn't mention that the montare felt big...

    The bike is nice but I think you should look at different brands. You're not going to be comfortable with either size and will likely spend the next year swapping components like stems, seat posts,...

    Get the Raleigh. Who cares if the Giant specs are better, the Raleigh felt better. End of story. Parts can be swapped out as needed, but a bike that feels like crap will always be a bike that...

    Personally, I'd get the parts and fix it up. A new 300-400 bike is not going to be as good as yours with a little TLC. I'd replace the chain and cables for sure, the others I'd try to clean up and...

    I found that my disc brakes require less maintenance than my old caliper versions. Pretty sure the misceos use mechanical rather than hydraulic discs, so you may need to tighten up the cable every...

    A 2013 Kona Dew Plus. Love it, I really do. Like the Quick CX, it has a pretty short TT and made a world of difference in my comfort. Kona offers more frame sizes for Dew series (6 instead of...

    I think you have some conflicts to sort out. The Trek is the most road hybrid and you said the most comfortable, priced right between the others. Spec wise, it's low end. For the money you can do...

    The Kona Dew Plus worked for me because it was offered in 6 frame sizes (instead of the usual 4 or 5 by other manf) and the effective top tube and reach was shorter than my previous bike, a Giant. ...
