    The simple secret to 23mm is paved roads. Most gravel riders are on 28-35mm tires.

    120+ psi?!? I'm 30 lbs heavier, and used to ride at 100/110 on 700x23 tires... Now I run tubeless at 75/85 psi...

    Get the 500. You may think you don't want cadence/HRM but you probably will. Alternatively, get a cheap (<$50) bike computer that just measures distance/time/speed and continue GPS logging on the...

    I'm going to do a quick post-accident review of what went wrong.

    Aero-bars put your weight very far forward compared with standard riding position. Touching the brake caused his weight to shift...

    Wheels ~$200. Cables ~$40. Tires/tubes ~$70. Seatpost $40. Seat $30. Bars $50.

    That's going pretty cheap on just about everything. Puts you right about at $450. Keep in mind that's CHEAP on...

    I'd vote Ultegra. There's a pretty significant difference in the crank weight, and the cost isn't that much.

    Some side notes:

    1) Have you bled the brakes recently? If the lever feels spongy you need to bleed the brakes. Avid uses DoT4 fluid and the should be bled annually regardless of mileage. Also,...

    Larger front is very common. The front takes more weight, and so the extra leverage and cooling help. On the back, the extra leverage provided by the larger rotor makes the rear wheel more prone to...

    I bought a carbon copy of the Specialized just to try the shape and carbon saddle. Feel wasn't bad, the shell had enough flex to take the edge off bumps. Definitely required good bib shorts though....

    Main advantage of baggies is that they're more durable. I wear lycra bibs, but throw a pair of hiking shorts over to keep a good pair of bibs from getting shredded.

    I ride mostly on the hoods. My problem with the thumb button is that it was too high for me to comfortably rest my thumb on it, and I couldn't really keep my thumb below it. Many people have the...

    If you can stand the thumb button, they're reliable. Personally, I hated the ergonomics of the button, and would find an alternative solely for that reason.

    There's significantly less incentive for Shimano to switch to quick-links since everyone has moved to 11-speed.

    Both KMC and SRAM say that the 11-speed quick links are not re-usable. Shimano...

    You can easily drop over a pound of weight with new wheels & tires. And the Infinito is a standard bike for the spring classics. Not much different than a top-end Roubaix/Defy, which I agree is not...
