    Of the three bikes you've listed, I'd go with the Trek. What mcours2006 said about the 105 is right on, not much difference if any from new Tiagra. Your friends bike will only work if it's the...

    OK, so you're not a light-weight, but 180 to 200 isn't a heavy weight. Any wheelset should be able to support you problem free. I'm in the same weight range as you and have no problems with my...

    Same here, three mid week rides and a Saturday ride. However, about 45 miles, 2 of the mid-week rides are on hills. I hate hills and I suck at them, but they help conditioning. Besides, when I...

    +1, If the OP had a cheapo Alex or Weinmann wheelset, then yes it would be well worth it. But coming from Aksiums its not enough of a jump to tell the difference. I'd stay with the Aksiums, keep...

    You really need to give this some serious thought. One item that has not been mentioned. On some of those older groupsets, when you change from a triple to a double, the left triple shifter has been...

    Maybe, but if it was just one spoke, over tightening would have caused the rim to be out of true. If it was several in a group it would have flat spotted. Probably a pot hole cause a fracture and...

    What is it you WANT from your next bike? The only hint you've given is your current bike is too heavy. So at a minimum, you want to spec a 20lb or less bike. But more info is needed to give...

    1. As a kid, I had someone open their left door right in front of me as I was passing their car, flew off the bike onto the pavement. Amazingly, no cars hit me as I fell onto the pavement in the...

    Great, let's add fuel to the fire of those motorists who hate cyclists, like to cut us off or take other dangerous actions. Let's give them an excuse to hit a bike. Incredibly dumb Washington Post...

    Based on your serial number, that would decode to a 1977 model, possibly a 78. You can check the year using a different method. If your derailers are original, and it looks like they are, there...

    I would get the Vent Noir, but I would not use it for commuting. I'd ride the KHS for that purpose.

    Interesting thread. My only experience with recovery occurred several years ago. I was riding quite a bit, losing weight, but not improving in hill climbing or speed. Had a meeting with the...

    I ride with a pair of standard, progressive lens glasses, with a steel frame and a magnetic clip on sunglass overlay. Never had a problem with the sunglass clip on falling off, not even a hint of a...

    Yeah, I guess you could say I carried N+1 a little too far. Maybe a lot too far.

    Be very careful about using a wheel from a Mongoose. I've worked on some of their bikes and the wheels were poorly made. They had some sort of cost/cutting hub on one of their bikes where the...

    Yes, the AXEL fork is better than the RST, much better. The AXEL is a spring fork and has hydraulic dampening. The RST is a spring/elastomer fork. At the age of your bike, I'd be amazed if the...

    jimc is right. The SAVA site almost looks like a scam. On the first page, it says the MTB frame is aluminum, when you click for the next page, it says the frame material is carbon fiber. On their...

    I'm on a strict diet. I had 62 bikes and now I'm down to 38. My goal is to have no more than 20 by this time next year. The reality is, I only ride about seven of them and another I'm giving to my...
