    I picked up the vivoactive for a couple of reasons: I liked an idea of a smart watch but didn't want to spend tons of money, and - I'm a Garmin dealer.

    I got the watch a few weeks back. I had a...

    I usually ask customers, "tubular or clincher." They usually respond with, "tubular!"

    "Are you sure?"

    "Yes - I want the kind with the tube."

    "They both have tubes. You glue on tubulars."...

    As a seller of wheels I never cease to be amazed at how up in arms people get over the sound of the freehub. There are staunch supports on both sides - louder is better and quieter is better. ...

    You lost my interest at "tubeless".

    Problem with the tire barring any major damage to the rim bead but odds are just the tire bead.

    New tire. Try a tube next time and stop wasting your time...

    No. I would never....but that's mainly because I haven't ever found a Bontrager branded part that I like. Apart from that...it's a bike. It's only redeeming value is you enjoy riding it. (TWSS).

    I glue anywhere from 300-1000 tubulars a year. I sell tons of both tubular and clincher rims. I personally maintain a large majority of racers wheels here in Chicago through cross and road seasons...

    7800 continues to be the best mechanical group ever produced IMHO. 9000 is getting close to being back where they were.

    I knew a racer on Garmin when they switched to 7900 when it first came...

    That's why I said crows foot "style" - meaning twisted spokes.

    Typical subset of cyclists: I can't afford a lot of what I think are high end zoot pieces of cycling gear. I therefore project on to everyone I see who can. I make up some sort of hierarchy of...

    Kinlin does a fantastic job for sure. I have loved building with thousands of their rims, but they aren't the end all of aluminum rims. There are others out there that are great rims and for...

    There are a few levels in the market. After looking at it for a while you can start to find where the levels are. As a consumer you won't have a lot of information available to you when you go...

    ^^^ This. It serves me no good to sell someone something they later find to not be what they want. It's always in my best interest to provide what people want and at a value they feel is appropriate.

    There are stretches that are better than others but best bet is hitting up one of the downtown clubs/groups. I believe xXx lists some of their training routes on their site. I believe all are on...
