    Average power is basically worthless as a training tool. The only reason to use a power meter over a HRM is that you want real-time power data. Basically the purpose of a power meter is to tell you...

    Specialized is definitely better components, especially the 8-speed vs 7-speed Trek. Both bikes have lower end components, if you start riding seriously you'll likely wind up upgrading to a better...

    Your basic premise doesn't account for wheels being a set item. Wheels really boil down to two categories, custom sets and factory builds. A custom wheel builder has a selection of rims, spokes and...

    What are your priorities? The Marathon Plus is virtually immune to flats and will last forever, over in the Commuting forum people routinely get 25k mi on them. The downside is its heavy and slow. ...

    The real problem is a loose or partially open QR, which fully opens when you hit a significant jolt. I'm guessing that's why a significant injury occured, jump a curb and BAM! I will add a second...

    I believe Shimano will drop 2 gears at a time, and the shifts are so fast that your cadence would go to hell trying to drop more than 3-4 gears. Its seriously a non-issue.

    Schwalbe One is an excellent tire. As a bonus over the Sector it doesn't require sealant so no issues with weeping sidewalls.

    You already have a light hybrid Al/Carbon rim, get the full carbon aero rim. If you're sure you want light tubeless clinchers, the C24s are hard to beat.

    That Hutchinson list is several years old. It doesn't list the Shimano DuraAce WH-9000-C24-TL which is identical to the 7900, just 11-speed. I doubt Hutchinson has updated the list since Bontrager...

    Nothing wrong with it.

    I personally wouldn't put hot coffee in a plastic bottle though, I doubt the plastic is really designed for high temperatures and can leech all sorts of chemicals. ...

    Bottomed out seat tube is generally a bad sign. I'm 6'0" and found a 19.5" Trek to be about right for me, so the 17.5" is probably at your upper end.

    When you say the seat tube is bottomed out,...

    This. Its a SRAM OpenGlide cassette of some type. Probably OG-1070, since the Red 1090 cassette would be clearly indicated. The main complaint is that they're noisy due to the missing teeth.

    How many people are you passing vs how many do you pass? That's the best indicator of your relative speed.

    The reason for a 50/34 is simple, more usable gearing. I went from 52/42/30+12/23 to...

    Shimano doesn't sell the bare rims, you need to buy the whole wheel if you want a Shimano rim. For Shimano, I'd recommend going with the C24 over the C35. The C35 doesn't have an aero profile, so...

    The Grade looks like a really interesting design. I recently had a GT Avalanche 1.0, very solid bike. Unfortunately, perhaps a little too solid, as in heavy. Good bike though, but can't really...
