    I don't know your body like you, but those bars look like they're turned so far up you're not putting weight on the front wheel!

    Why thank you! :) But I'll put some of the credit on my Lapierre. I have noticed an increase in my statistics since riding her. (Could just be I like to ride it more than my last one)

    Stocked up on FinishLine Dry, because I got tired of having to clean and reapply ceramic lube on my Lapierre so often.

    I know they're a house brand of QBP, which I've yet to know a bike shop that doesn't have an account with them. But they're a rip-off still, not being cheap for a simple steel frame.

    Exactly.

    90% of riders on the road would be happier on endurance geo. But less than half of the bike models available are racy.

    Why Do I See So Many Surlys?

    I've gotta say, I think the whole Surly line is a rip-off. There's far better bikes for the price, they're tanks, have a dead ride (even though they're steel), and are even ugly! I've also noticed...

    They're exactly the same frame and groupset. Just the Cross has better breaks, slightly better wheels, & more knobby tires!

    I'd just say, which one's color do you like more?

    I've got to agree with many of the others here. Aluminum. Cost & weight.

    i like steel, but don't like the idea of it on a cyclocross bike I'd own. It rusts, and mud is an icon in cyclocross. Do...

    I'm wondering why you're buying a frame instead of a whole bike?

    Piecing together a bike is far more expensive than just getting the whole rig together.

    I'm actually pretty set on getting a PRO Vanderham Saddle, which I know is a "freeride" saddle, but I sure like it on my XC bike. And it's quite firm despite the...

    Saddle Style Choices

    I was wondering what riders here tend to put on their road bikes that don't stay on the road. The sleek mounts like Fizik Antares, or a more mountain biker WTB saddle?

    I'm sure I will. Comes with the through axles that many models are taking on, and the simplicity with the belt drive will be PERFECT for winter. :ride:
