    Shiny Object

    I keep the Portland Design Works "Shiny Object" in my seat bag. It takes very little space and is reliable. It has the on-off valve to control the flow. I've used it on the side of the road during...

    I am am 5'8" with a shorter inseam. I went with a 54, but I wish that I had gone with a 52. It was a bit stretched for me and the standover is right up against it. I did replace the 100mm stem...

    Here's my 54. I put a 90mm stem on it. I'm 5'8" and I was split between a 52 or a 54. Maybe my next one will be a 52.

    I like that colorway. What size did you switch down from? I've been thinking of going down from my 54 to a 52.

    I have wide feet and the Specialized Tahoe fit me well. Some of the Specialized now come in wide sizes too.



    I purchased mine at my LBS. For me, there's no substitute for trying on shoes.

    Bikes have sloping top tubes? Really? I was referring to me and no one else. Here's my Surly Pacer.

    I'm 5'8" with a 30" inseam and I recently decided on a 54". It has a snug standover and lower seatpost exposure, but so does my current steel road bike that also has a 54.5 ETT and I've always liked...

    It's actually a Trek 9th District. It came with a 9 speed 11-32 cassette and a 44 chainring. Earlier this year I swapped the 44 for a 38. When I bought it in 2013, my LBS was going to make me a...

    Kansas City is a decent bike commuting city, but there are not a lot of us. This has to be one of the most car-centric communities. Plenty of hills here too, but it makes for a good workout.

    Surly Cross Check fender questions

    I test rode a 2015 Surly Cross check at my LBS this weekend. It fit well and the bar end shifters were smooth. However, I have a couple of questions that maybe some current CC owners can answer:

    Ok. I'll order the 5700.

    This is my second build. The first was a Kona HonkyTonk and I went with SRAM Rival. I'm still learning, but I really enjoy it.

    Thanks for the help!

    Topeak Beam Rack
