    Also double post because I roll like that.

    I've yet to get a bike comp for this one, but at a low estimate I've put around 70 miles on it so far. Things I like:
    -Shifting is amazing. Quick,...

    Yeah, Wyoming's kinda odd. If you go to Jackson or Lander, you'll almost see more bikes than cars, great bike culture, generally pretty awesome. But Riverton, not so much. I get weird looks, people...

    Thanks so much for all the advice folks! I'm really hoping to do something proactive here, if for no other reason than to help future cyclists in the area. Unfortunately I'm taking off in early...

    ^ This is what bikes on CL are like in my area. Just FYI.

    They're the Tourney model, so kinda: It has a thumb click to shift up, but you click the brake lever in to shift down.
    Motolegs: That was a tough decision for me, haha. Ended up going with the...
  6. How do I make my town safer for cyclists?

    I moved from Lake Stevens, WA (a very bike-friendly place) to Riverton, WY, which is quite the opposite. There's a total of 1 bike path, that is more for recreation than actual commuting. There's...

    rpenmanparker: Thanks, I completely forgot about that! I did nudge the seat forward a little bit and there is a difference. I'll probably still end up getting a shorter stem, but I went out for a...

    I'm riding on the hoods most of the time. It just seems I'm stretching a little too far, my wrists and hands start to hurt after a while of that.

    And would flipping this particular stem help? It...

    My pleasure! And I'll be giving it a little more time anyway, I'm living on a bit of a tight budget until the end of the month anyway so unless it becomes a serious problem, the stem will have to...

    I'd be willing to work with that. I think it's moreso just getting used to the increased responsiveness over the old main battle tank (read: trek MTB's)
  11. First Impressions: BD Motobecane Mirage S

    I'll preface this by saying that I'm still a newbie to the road bike community. I rode a Trek MTB for the longest time before upgrading to this bike. But still, I couldn't find many reviews on this...

    Already planning on it. That, along with a new saddle most likely, new tires, tubes, probably a GPS unit (if I can afford one, poor college student), etc.

    Same problem here. Even car drivers have been complaining to the city council for a long time about the road conditions, and they're worse on the shoulders. I used to run 26in x 1.95 tires with a...

    How bike-friendly is your town?

    I'm asking because frankly, my town sucks for riding. There's a total of one bike lane in the entire area, and it doesn't go anywhere useful. The main drag that runs past any useful places (walmart,...

    Awesome! And we're in agreement on the china bikes. Some are decent (heard good things about Vilano) but for the most part I've not been impressed. The reason I'm interested is because a local guy...

    I really hate to necro this thread, but I love these sorts of projects, tinkering around and overhauling a bike like that. A few questions though, if you wouldn't mind me asking:

    Out of curiosity, would an 8 speed shifter work on a 7 speed cassette? I've seen a ton of 3x8 STI's at a decent price, but absolutely nothing for 3x7. Just wondering if they even exist, or if there's...
