    Not to take us too far afield from the original topic. . .
    I have the exact same issue with my 25s on my Felt road bike. 23's that came with it were fine, 25 Michelin Krylions will not pass the pads...

    The easiest solution is to make sure you are not "cross-chained". You don't want to use the smallest front "chainring" (a.k.a. "ring") while in the smallest rear gear (a.k.a. "cog") or the opposite...

    There are people who weigh much more than you on this forum riding carbon. I can't remember who it was but someone on here is in the 350+ range and riding carbon.

    I'm not a larger sized woman, but I am married to one. Here is my advice (for what it's worth).
    MOST IMPORTANT: Do not let any sales person at any bike store look down on you!!! Every store I have...

    Pedal to the Medal at TMS

    Pedal to the Medal
    Anyone done this before? It looks like it is somewhere between a charity ride and a race. If I don't really want to race (since I'm old/fat/slow) it looks like I could sign up for...

    You will want to learn how to take care of that kind of stuff on your own. It's really quite easy. There are TONS of YouTube videos that show how to do a flat repair. You can either put in a new tube...

    My usual strategy is start with the easiest possible fix and work up from there. Since you are not losing the chain off of the large or small cog then the limit screws are not a problem. As others...

    I would consider an oil change to be in the category "Pretty simple maintenance that can really cause big problems if you don't do it regularly." (As opposed to something more entailed like changing...

    I like this one:
    Planet Bike Red Zeppelin
    I like that it screws onto the stem. Seems pretty secure. If I were to replace it I might try the PDW Shiny Object. I'm a BIG FAN of their products.

    Here's your handy link to the Richardson Bike Mart rides. Their main store is at the corner of Coit and Campbell in Plano. (A couple of miles west of 75 on Campbell.)

    Did you buy any new tools for the job?
    If I can't rationalize a reason to buy a new bike-related tool for each job I can't call the job a complete success. (I can freely say this here because I know...

    I vote to have davidad's post made into a sticky by itself. Then, when needed, it can be brought into use to end a thread.

    Fort Worth has become quite bike friendly of late. Lots of trails in and around town. They even have a bikeshare program in the downtown area. (It helps that the mayor is an avid road biker)

    IF you don't has to have 'brifters' you could go this route:
    Shimano A050 Thumb Shifter Set

    I'm in with jyi and le mans--I vote for some defect possibly (likely) combined with a previous front end collision. Have you pulled the forks to have a look. That may give you important clues.

    Now for a less silly answer.
    Yes, putting on a larger front chainring or smaller cogs on the rear will increase her top end speed potential. As always it comes down to the question of how much do...

    Tell her to put on more weight. Seems to have worked for me! I'm a monster going downhill!

    My wife once asked me why guys kick each other when they're down. I told her because when they're down on the ground they can't move as fast. Easier target.

    I was just about to post that link. Yes, I think that is what you want. I just did the same thing you are doing but I needed concave version, and I went with the A050 shifters instead. (Primarily...

    I would second the craigslist idea. Tons of parts on there.

    Like others have said, 200 pounds is a great goal, but it's a long term goal. You need to have some short term goals that you can knock out to see you are making progress.

    You will find that you...

    I second Doohickie's suggestion. The Cowtown Classic routes are pretty nice. The roads a fairly quiet and there are cue sheets for a variety of distances.

    I'm not real mechanic but from what I can see it looks like your option is going to be an allen wrench on the backside of the pedal.

    I have seen those and I really like the looks of that option. Price is a bit high though. I don't mind the slight added movement to use something mounted elsewhere on the bars--either bar ends or...
