    My average speed the trails I ride most is 6.5mph. I really don't think aerodynamics come in to play. Sometimes I ride baggies and sometimes I use my tight road stuff, just depends mainly on the...

    Never used them and I haven't seen them on any $600 or less bikes either. I've heard good things about them though.

    I'm a hairy bastard and If I shaved my legs I'd have to shave everything or I'd just look odd. Way too lazy to do that.

    For a good while. They just cut out all the fancier bits the higher end versions get to make a price point. New $600 or less bikes don't ship with great brakes but I'd take shimano hydraulics over...

    Shimano hydraulics even in the low end which the DB has are great. Everybody blabs about how hard hydraulics are to service just don't have shimanos. Shimanos are dirt simple to bleed and can go...

    Are you against going used? 26er stuff is out of fashion so you should be able to score a nice used for on ebay or whatever pretty cheap. I bought a really nice Manitou r7 platinum for I think $90...

    Because we were talking about a specific rack the 1up usa bike rack which can only hold 3 bikes in their 1 1/4 version.

    The 1up usa rack is all aluminum no matter what size you get it in and it is great. And when I said small bit of aluminum it is actually rather chunky but not nearly as strong as the 2" version. ...

    The only racks they make rated to handle 4 bikes only work with a 2" hitch. Their 1 1/4 hitch racks can only handle up to 3 bikes which would be fine with a class 1 hitch. The base rack for 1 bike...
