    If I crush a seatpost, I can replace it, very easily. All my bikes have 27.2mm seatposts, so I don't even have to go without...

    No.

    Its not in my price range. Tiagra 10spd seems fine to me. Cheap. Works. Easy as pie to set up.

    Won't own disc brakes, either. On a road bike that is. My next MTB will have disc brakes!

    I built 32h Deep-V laced to Tiagra hubs with Sapim Race spokes last winter, I was around 225 then. Immediately noticed much increased stiffness, and nicer ride overall.

    I'm down to 171 (today)...

    Yep, I can ride the drops now after losing 55lbs, 6" in waist and 6+" in chest. EVERYTHING is easier now! I cut right through the wind, too, in comparison to when I was heavier!

    Accept no substitutes. Seriously, they turned my mediocre at best Tektro road calipers into great brakes! Not the stopping power of v-brakes, but more than I need on a road...

    Mavic Aksion's (folding) on my Deep-V were no issue at all. I've read that they are just Vittoria zaffiro pro, so I would imagine Vittoria's are similar. I use the Velocity Velo-plugs instead of...

    I guess all those years of "anatomical cutouts" are just a bunch of bologna!

    I think I will stick to my normal saddles. They don't seem to cause me any problems :)

    I prefer the Reach Total Care also branded as Listerine much better. Its kind of ribbed to help scrape out more, and I think it works better.

    Glide does not seem to clean between my teeth at all.

    or dark brown sugar. Steel cut oats are a nicer texture, too :) I get the 3-minute variety, and one serving of 170 calories is hard to eat, its a LOT!
