    I do agree that it seems a little odd. I try to do as much work myself, but this was outside my ability. This was my first time going to this guy, on the recommendation of a buddy.

    It wasn't play...

    His explanation was that I had cracked or separated the area where the carbon fork joins the steerer tube. When holding the front brake and pulling or pushing on the bars, there was a significant...

    Need a new frame. Maybe?

    So, through my own stupidity (or inexperience) I spent a couple weeks last summer riding my first new bike without one of the spacers on the steerer tube. I now know you're not supposed to do this....

    Roof rack Mazda 3

    So, I got a 2012 Mazda 3 a few months ago, and I'm thinking of getting a roof mount for the bikes. It didn't come with rails installed, so I'll need those too. Any suggestions or input on what to...

    Just found your post. I'll be there for my third year doing the Reynolds Rd. 100 again.
    I agree that the money is a huge commitment but it's defiantly worth it.

    The frame is the part that isn't a wheel and doesn't move. The fork is the part below the handlebars (that's the part you hold on to and steer with). Measure the gap between the top of the tire and...

    Thanks for the advice. From what I've been able to dig up, the bike was some attempt by Mongoose to get into the cross market.

    While I'm certainly not competing in anything at all, when I got dragged into riding by a friend a few years ago, I started on my $100 garage sale Mongoose steel frame road bike de jour. I got a few...

    Getting ready to start commuting.

    This winter I got a new job and my commute went from 54 miles each way to 6.
    I decided that the thousands of dollars I'm saving in gas was a good reason to buy a new bike. So now I want to set my...

    Giantnerd & TomMaso bikes

    Does anyone have any experience buying a bike from Giantnerd? I'm looking at the Tommaso Mondial and it seems like a decent price. I have two questions.
    1. Are the frames good? The few reviews I...

    Couldn't agree more. Just today, I had the same realization. I did my first century this summer and trained as hard as I could to get ready for it. Since then I really backed off on the distances and...

    Honestly, if you dont have kids you really can't grasp it. Not trying to insult you or anything, but (in my experience at least) there is a level of stress that cannot be quantified. It is compounded...

    Boy that third one really throws you for a curve. Try having a fourth and see how that goes. Maybe you just need an even number.

    But until I get that money tree in the back yard ready for harvest, I'll be sticking to My RSX group that works pretty good almost all the time.

    What is the cause of this discussion? Is it just that some people feel guilty that they get a perceived "exemption" and somehow that's a bad thing?
