    People on road bikes are often at the tail end of long rides, or warming up to a long ride, or maybe they're just wanting to spin easy before/after work.

    While the QR design was a serious oversight, I still can't help but think this recall is like apologizing that not tightening the lug nuts on your car wheel lead to a crash... I'm pretty sure proper...

    Some of us never really quite nail down what we want/need in a commuter/recreational bike. Which is why many of us have too many bikes.

    Ah, yes. Back in the height of weight weenie nastiness. Road tires being labeled as 23s but being built as 21s so that their stated weight "blows the competition away". Constant narrowing of...
