    Depending on the type of riding you like to do, there are a number of trails close to Seattle, including Duthie and Tiger, but there are others.

    It sounds like the OP ordered a new bike. It doesn't sound like a "learn to do it yourself" situation. As most have said, the wait can differ significantly depending on the how busy the shop is. I...

    I can lock them when wet. That doesn't mean they work as well as disc. Disc work much better in the wet.

    I have road bikes with caliper, mechanical disc, and hydraulic disc brakes. All three options work fine in Seattle with the rain and the hills, but without a doubt, when riding in the wet, I prefer...

    My wife has an Orca Dama and it is a really nice bike. It seems to be a good balance between race and comfort. It doesn't climb like my BH though. I'm a small guy so climbing is where I excel and...

    My Orbea is the Avant, which is their endurance model so quite a bit different than the Orca. I have the Avant outfitted with fenders and disc brakes. It's my commuter, but I also use it for longer...

    Although I don't have a suggestion regarding sizing, I too own a BH and an Orbea. I guess we both like Spanish bikes :-) Good luck with your purchase. I love my BH!

    Yep, inside pedal stays up if you are leaning over quite a bit. If you aren't sure, then just keep that pedal up just in case. Especially on a corner where an accident could send you into oncoming...

    It will cost me $1200 in parts to go to Di2 with hydraulic brakes. I think I would probably lose well over that if I sold my bike, plus, I can put the Ultegra 6800 on one of my other bikes. Even if...

    I hope you have your bike fit dialed in. There are bike fit issues that will not present themselves on a 30 mile ride, but might start to show up around 70+ miles. My longest ride is a bit over 100...
