    I would suggest Academy (21 then 83) out of Colorado Springs. You can head west on 105 through Monument from there or keep on 83 all the way into Parker then Denver.
    You mention Woodland Park so...

    I was with ya on the title, so opened the thread and got a damn good laugh from the first two sentences. I am also somewhat selfish and would probably think the same thing and then chastise myself...

    Blowing a red light = not slowing down at all....

    Blowing a red light = not slowing down at all.
    Running a red light = crossing the intersection while the light is red.
    Big difference. The former is always a risk, but if you stop, there is no...

    So I took the bike to my LBS. One of the derailleur bolts was loose, I didn't have the cable tight enough and the high limit screw needed a turn. The guy said I was "damn close" and he doesn't see a...

    Yeah well I already called them, told my story and asked when I could bring it in for a look. I don't think I need to be sheepish about it. Thanks for the advice all the same.
  6. Thanks, unfortunately that made no difference....

    Thanks, unfortunately that made no difference. Pretty frustrating because I feel like it's close but it keeps jumping from the biggest to smallest ring, and still feels too tight, like I will break...

    I think the last 3 posters here have summed up the problem. I was not able to find the exact model number, all it says is Tiagra Triple. But looking at the specs of similar derailleurs, the limits...

    Andy, I have no trouble with the middle ring engaging the chain from the granny. But the middle ring does seem to be in the "shadow" when coming down from the big, at least now. I hope replacing...

    Thanks for the replies!
    fietsbob, I haven't watched any videos on it but I have a couple of books that guide you through derailleur replacement, been using those.
    himespau, I think you're right...
  10. 50-39-30 to 53-39-30 followed by shifting problems

    I have a Trek 2.1, 2009, with Tiagra brifters and a Tiagra front derailleur. My original 50 tooth chainring was very worn and slightly bent, so I decided to replace it with a 53. I had to raise the...

    I've seen this once or twice a year as long as I can remember in my 20+ years of commuting. Wait for the green light, then look both ways again. Also be aware of where you are sitting at an...

    I have a long commute, so the number of commutes wasn't as high as it might look. It just takes longer in the morning in winter because my body doesn't work as well, I'm carrying more stuff, and I...

    I rode through a few rough neighborhoods 2-3 times a week for years. I had several one-off encounters where someone started messing with me. It was never the same person twice. So I'd say just keep...

    Hi Fastfwd01 thought I'd throw in my 2 cents here. If you've never cycled at 'altitude' before you might want to come up and try your legs (and lungs) for a few days before tackling a long-distance...

    Finally got a chance to do some riding on these roads and thought I'd post my perspective as a visitor. Rented a Raleigh Revenio from West Orange Trail Bikes & Blades. Nice shop, I'd recommened it....

    I'm thinking about doing a route this weekend that includes Grapevine Rd from Genesee to Idledale. The other ~50 miles of the route will be all road so I'll be out on my skinny bald tires. Is...

    1. Well they do slide in and out too easily for my comfort. The original is very snug (which is why I pulled the thing apart to begin with)
    2. I don't think so. The light side is still solid.

    So I went to Radio Shack and got a package of 2 connectors, 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm without the leads. I cut back and stripped the wires coming from the headlight and soldered them to the connector. Before...

    Cool. If I can't find anyone around town who carries an extension cable I'll try Radio Shack for the connector.. Thanks for the info and the tip. I would like to head out tomorrow 40 minutes before...

    Thanks, I think I'll go with chopping and splicing in with a new extension cable.

    I don't know what 'short leads' means. Is the lead the very end of the cable without the rubber/plastic casing?
  23. Headlight cord frayed and separated from plug

    I have this MagicShine headlight, about 4 years old, been great. However now the wire, right where it meets the plug (to the battery) is frayed and
    broken/separated from the plug. For a while...

    I had probably 2cm of cable to work with and the shifter would not downshift more than 3 clicks. Ultimately the jiggle, shake, poke and shift method is what worked for me, along with spraying some...

    I might be breaking a rule about dead threads here ... but in case it helps anyone, in my case I thinkthe broken spoke problem was caused by the wheel dishing being off. I tried once again to even...
