    Honestly I'd be happy with Ultegra on a new bike in any form. Decades ago when I built my bike, there was a noticeable shifting difference between DA and Ultegra, but even with my 9-speed stuff, the...

    That's a sweet looking ride, and I wouldn't complain about 18 lbs at all.

    I have two mountain bikes (three if you count the one with the cracked head tube) but no beach cruiser. I do have a second road bike though.

    Someone used to make a breakaway RD bolt for frames without a replaceable hanger. Can't remember who now, but I used to have one in my MTB.

    It's good advice! I did a lot of core work all winter and it's helped a lot. But I would have needed some core body armor for this spill.




    Thanks, Robert! :thumb: I'm trying to be upbeat....

    Well it'll be an easy habit to drop after yesterday! :lol:

    The thing is, anything can happen, and often does. The important thing is to learn from these things and do what we can to prevent them....

    Not sure if it's the best, but I've been doing it for 37 years with no problems.

    Back from the ER now, and I have a better idea as to what happened. I don't think I have RNAV's same problem.

    I'm 99% sure this is down to adjustment.

    But I'm wondering if this super-wide BB doesn't make it more finicky. I've dropped chains before (mind you, usually not when I'm going small to large),...
  9. It appears I've contracted RNAV's Emonda chainsuck problem.

    In case you don't know what I'm talking about, RNAV had a chainsuck issue with his new Emonda last year.

    Unfortunately, it looks like a FTD (Forum-transmitted disease).

    I did a 35-mile ride...

    I might call my LBS tomorrow and see if they can find out anything from Trek. Hope it won't take too long for that stuff to make it to the bikes. I'm willing to wait a year, but not two. I wanna...

    Fox to change shocks/forks?

    I'm currently in the market for a new mountain bike, and both of the bikes on my shortlist have Fox float shocks with the CTD damping.

    But according to this article, Fox is dropping CTD next year...

    15.6 lbs without the saddlebag. I have new wheels on the way, so the weight might be down a tad soon.

    I've gained 54 feet on the stationary trainer in my basement. I blame the heat pump.

    Core work. As I got older, I found myself slowly raising my bars to alleviate lower back pain. Two years ago I picked up a really nice home gym system on craigslist, so I decided to start doing ab...

    A funny side-note, the weight weenies website is blocked at my office because the word "weenie" triggers the porn filter. :rolleyes:

    I need an aero advantage on my cleat covers like I need to tape the fender gaps our station wagon to get better mileage. Any advantage would be too insignificant to notice.

    I'm trying to stay in the < $2500 ballpark.


    Too true, but right now I have old bikes with old parts that are nearing the end of their lifespans. My Dakar is all old 8-sp stuff, and two seasons...

    That's really good info, and it jibes with what one of my local guys was saying today.

    As far as test rides go, I planned to ride a 27.5" bike and a 29" bike back to back last year at a local epic...

    I'm not sure on the lockout. I never seem to need/want/use lockout, so it's sort of off my radar.

    Good deal on the bikes. I'm very close to pulling the trigger on a new Trek Superfly FS bike, so...

    This past winter my Garmin thought I gained ~50 feet of elevation while on my trainer in the basement.

    btw I'll take hills to headwinds any day.

    Any Superfly riders?

    My newest mountain bike is almost 15 years old (2001 Jamis Dakar Expert) and 8-speed, so I think it's finally time for me to enter the latest decade. So... I'm about to plunge blindly into the 29"...
