    This guy is also posting these terrible videos over on RBR.

    I can attest to the fact that these are great. I use them primarily for running but they work well on a hot day on the bike. Look no further.

    The Bell Alchera is really comfortable and well ventilated. It's a steal at $45. Also, when the pads wear out, the $5 replacement set sold on Amazon makes it even more comfortable. Once downside:...

    ProLink Gold attracts the least dirt of any chain lube I've used. Also, I think the black stuff is at least partially aluminum oxide from the chainrings.

    DA hubs are bar none the best in the business. The cups and cones are easy to adjust just right and will last essentially forever. Also, Shimano has a terrific free-hub machanism. That would be...

    These have been around for a long, long time. I remember seeing them back in Bicycling magazine in the late eighties. I've never met anyone who uses them, it's nice to hear that they're good. I'll...

    Yeah, stainless all the way. I have a Ti frame: the <$20 Perfomance Strada stainless cages look great on there and work well. I've tried several carbon cages and the Elite Custom Race cages, all...

    To me, the most important thing with wheels is how much the rider weighs and how the wheel is intended to be used. Heavier riders need more spokes and a stronger rim to have wheels that won't go out...

    Guys please, you're killing me. Read post 27.

    This, on the other hand, is good advice that I will follow from now on.

    A lot of you are misunderstanding me and making assumptions. I get it: I will lose in a "competition about who's right" with a car. I will lose no matter who is right. Trust me, after 25 years of...

    After years on working on bikes, I've learned that it's often pretty difficult to screw something up. They are not complicated machines. Adjusting the gears requires either a screwdriver or no...

    Good points.

    I did, but it was very close.

    I was standing right next to him after he pulled up behind me, he'd have to have been literally blind to not see me. Also, I was wearing a primarily orange jersey.

    Great idea. I just learned that here in Illinois, drivers are both required to yield right of way to cyclists AND allow cyclists the right to pass before proceeding with a right turn. Good thing to...

    After 25 years of wearing spandex on a bike and after growing up as a Speedo-wearing serious competitive swimmer, spandex is just clothing to me. I will say that I believe that the clothes are a...
  17. Road etiquette question: who has right-of-way?

    I was almost hit by a car yesterday at a 4-way stop intersection. After stopping for a stop sign and putting a foot down in the breakdown lane, I remounted and started to go straight. A driver...

    I have the WH-6700. The 6800s allow you to adjust the cones with an allen key, the 6700 requires cone wrenches. Other than that difference and the 11sp spacing on the 6800s, they are the same...

    I use Strava only for total ride tracking and relative comparison. The watts/Kj expended and calories burned are wild estimates that I basically ignore. Average speed and total distance are both...

    You need an adaptor. I also think Praxis designs work well. "Ask a Mechanic" posted a good video about this topic on YouTube a few weeks ago.

    A few things to reiterate here:

    1. People still seem to be convinced that this setup would not offer a sufficiently low gear to handle steep climbs. Guys: with an available 42t rear cog, you're...
  22. I don't think this is true for these...

    I don't think this is true for these purpose-built 1x groups. The SRAM 1x chainring is a dedicated 1x design with alternating "thick" and "thin" teeth. The design can be much more secure than 2x...

    SRAM offers cogs up to 42t. I doubt most anyone needs more range than these setups offer. In a 44x42, you'll be crawling. Again, the gaps between ratios is a reasonable potential concern but the...
  24. SRAM launches 1x groups for the road. Interested?

    SRAM brings 1x to the road with new Force 1 and Rival 1 groupsets - BikeRadar

    I'm somewhat interested. I live in a flat area and am rarely out of the big ring. I've done many relatively fast...

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion here, but I don't understand spending more than about $40 on a pair of sports sunglasses. Mega buck glasses are, at least to me, among the biggest wastes of money...
