    Interesting... they must have been only installed on 6800 mechanical front derailleurs. I just got my bike rebuilt with a FD6870 and it didn't have the plastic skid plate.

    Sometimes it's also about the time of day. I've found the roads near a church to be especially frightening between 1130 and noon on Sunday mornings.

    Xpedo Spry and either the Shimano DX (MX30) or Saint (MX80) pedals are also worth a look.

    Also the Xpedo Traverse series of pedals provide an interesting take on the modern platform pedals.

    I've never had a bike with one of those derailleur cage plastic add-ons... nor have I ever felt they were necessary or useful. The metal on metal contact may sound like it's cause for concern but I...

    Even though they are a local (Washington) company, I don't see many of their high-end bikes around here. Their midgrade and lower end stuff do make a fair showing. I'm sure that's due to them...

    Dammit. I remember having an old analog bicycle speedometer mounted to a Huffy 12-speed MTB back in the 1980s. I kind of wish I still had it. I can't remember exactly who made it but it looked...

    I have always mourned the loss of respect for Nishiki. One of my most loved MTBs was my 1990 Nishiki Ariel (Cunningham designed w/full DeoreDX; poor-man's Mantis XCR). It was part of the same line...

    I'd only need to remove the seatpost to access the pump if I've flatted on the road. At that point, I've already been hassled. I guess time will tell if it becomes the straw that breaks the camel's...

    No... the spokes don't rattle around in the frame. Due to the very specific shape of my seat-tube, they get pushed down to a point where they naturally get lodged (aided by the handle of the pump...

    BTW, this looks to be a 1999 model year 5200. The Trek 5200 is an OCLV bike. OCLV involves carbon lugs although later OCLV bikes began to use a three-piece sub-assembly construction method that is...

    85 PSI is actually pretty easy. 100 PSI isn't too difficult. I usually run 120 PSI and that takes a bit more. You just have to have a little patience. The pump is rated for 160 PSI but I don't...

    Just as something to consider... Ultegra Di2 costs about the same as Dura-Ace Mechanical.
