    $980 for a bike with entry level components? Seems a bit expensive for a bike that comes with Sora drivetrain and Tektro brakes. There's a few reviews out there but most of them degenerate into...

    Zombie thread alert!

    No bike shop can stay in business charging $10 for more than a cursory inspection of the bike and perhaps making minor adjustments to the cable settings. They certainly...

    I agree with the other posters who suggested considering the Trek. It is probably considerably lighter than your current bike but I would suggest you treat it better than you do your MTB. In...

    The OP rides a $2400 (Stratus LE) to $2500 (Stratus X) long wheelbase recumbent bike. I doubt he has any interest in buying either a Schwinn or Workman trike. It is obvious this is for road riding,...

    One fact that you are going to learn very quickly is that a 20" wheel rotates more revolutions than a larger diameter wheel at the same speed. The result is that it will throw more water at you than...
  16. Bike theft on campus may be a problem

    If you are going to take it on to a college campus, you don't want to ride a shiny new bike. You want a "beater" which is a bike in decent condition but not nice enough to attract the attention of...

    vastly different quality but will either bike fit you?

    The Ross bike is a piece of junk in comparison to the first bike. I can't see enough of the bike close enough to see what components are on it but the few I see cry "low end junk". In later years...

    Pretty inexpensive (low end) hydraulic disc brakes

    The fact that you can buy a entire set of the brakes identical to the ones on this bike for $50 is not a good sign. Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brake BL-M355-L | BicycleBuys.com I had a recumbent trike...
