    OP,
    Not everyone is cut out to ride a road bike. I know several cyclists who refuse to deal with the cars and the small number of jerks who drive them. As an example, the Tarmac I ride came from...

    Saturday, the B group was off pace a little so I grabbed on and completed 38 at a 17.4 pace. It's nice to ride with them again, but I have to continue the weight loss program and some sprinting to...

    Nope,
    Comment: A lot easier to re-sell with stickers. Difficult to re-sell without them and they always take a value hit.

    Ride bikes and work on my bikes way more than spend time posting.

    That's a FULL chromoly frame, not just the main tubes. Main tubes are double butted. The 2 X 7 RSX is a little old school but I rode it for a year and found it way better than down tube 8 speed. ...
  6. SwissStop Flash Pro BXP Pads, Are They Supposed to be Equal to Koolstops?

    I picked up a set of 7800 DA brakes. The guy selling them included a set of SwissStop, Flash Pro BXP pads that look almost new. He made something of big deal about how good the pads were. OK, I...

    I didn't see Bianchi on anyone's list. Granted Celeste doesn't seem to get as much respect as it did only a few short years ago.
    In Europe, Nishiki still markets some nice bikes, but in the US,...

    This thread made me think about the re-cycling and earth friendly actions we take today. I have not looked into earth friendly grease like the OP, but, consider when I was a kid, everything went...

    If you want chromo for ride quality, I'd pass on the Technium. Yes it's worth $70 easily. But the ride quality won't be any better than the Nishiki or the Hard Rock. Maybe you need to keep looking.

    If it's the main spring controlling the derailer travel, lots of luck repairing. For what it's worth, I brought a vintage LX derailer to the bike shop with the same problem. Their comment was, it...

    Yeah, but then you wouldn't be allowed to ride for four weeks.:thumb:

    Congrats on winning the fastest clipless fall on an MTB in BF history. Your Certificate will follow soon.
    Seriously, many of us have been there, done that. In your case, you've got the fall out of...

    Generally, the rider going UPHILL, has the right of way. The logic is, it's a lot easier to restart going downhill than it is going uphill. On a very steep hill, this may not apply, but for most...

    I ride with a Topeak hexus, I keep one for each of my rides. I keep Park spoke wrenches in my tool box at home. If I have to adjust spokes on a ride, I'd replace that wheelset, not buy a new tool....

    Never, NEVER EVER, apologies on the Road Forum. Big mistake, Huge!


    BTW, congrats on the new ride. Hope the jerk in the pick up paid for it.

    I'm not familiar with the Rocky Mountain or the Canyon, but I am with the Stumpy. My one concern is the price. $1800CN is too high, Bicycle blue book confirms it should be about $1500CN max, and...

    Good choice. With lock out rear shocks, the only real penalty you pay with a rear suspension is weight. You can lock out the rear sus and make it dang close to a HT. BUT, there's no way your going...

    I never use any cycling computer on an MTB. The start, stop, slow down, pass an obstacle. IMHO, it's more about having fun and not worrying about beating a previous record or seeing how fast an...

    When it comes to road riding, my two CF bikes are the bosses. Despite the advancing years, I'm still able to hang with some fast "C" rides and an occasional "B" group. Same thing goes for mountain...

    OP, It depends on one significant decal. If it says, "Handmade In Italy", the value will be higher, somewhere around the $475 mark as stated above. If that decal is not there, the price goes down...

    IT's very hard to say if it's a match or not. Here is a pic of the bike that I referred to. Because we moved, I had to downsize my collection. I regret to say that the Record was a casualty of the...

    I'm not sure why you want to put a disc brake on your vintage C-dale. If you're going to ride it in heavy traffic, in a downtown area as a commuter, then it makes sense. Also, if you're returning to...

    Actually, your second item is a good point. Keeping a different back wheel with a different cog is something I hadn't thought of, and it's a good idea if your terrain varies significantly. I haven't...
