    Sizing is all over the place, even with some brands it is not consistent. Measure your chest with a tape measure. I look at the chest measurements when shopping online and know I need about 46"...

    Another disguised Denali. This one has both Bridgestone and Cannondale stickers on it. I will admit, it looks pretty good in the pics. Good thing I know better.

    Thanks. I looked at the list of Texas rides at wheelbrothers and it appears ft. Davis cyclefest is the same weekend. I know that is a scenic and popular event, and I haven't done it before.

    I'm 5'7" and that frame appears a little too tall for me. I normally ride a 50-51cm frame, which on a traditionally styled road frame has enough room at the headtube to fit one or two fingjers in the...

    We have one of these racks from Allen Sports on my wife's car. Pretty decent and easy to use. A big plus is that it folds up and stows away if desired.
