    I am around 1600 km so far this year. I have a ~250 km weekend planned out in three days, though, weather permitting.

    Too bad DFW is so far from me or I would make you an offer :D

    1000 miles is just a pre-season warm-up for a road bike! They should last thousands and thousands of whatever distance unit you...

    That is gonna be sweet!

    Now PLEASE stop shopping and just go ride the damn thing! ;)


    BTW, what size is your Jamis?

    Your POV indicates a limited experience, both in the number and variety of bike that you have tried, and in the setup of your own bike. Yes, if you are using 23mm tires then they would need to be at...

    Sweet! I had a '63 Superbe and loved it until the crankarm snapped while I was climbing a hill. Then I left it unlocked for three months in front of my apartment building and it got stole :(

    I don't understand this sentence. Do you want the bars lower or higher?
    From the photo I can see that you could either raise or lower them. A lot of people like the aesthetics of having the bars...

    I am fond of the Jamis road-sport bikes - their steel models are the 'Quest' line.

    I am with those posters above, however, that are skeptical that you will realize much benefit from the change.

    You exact words were: "Tires can't make up all the difference between a stiff aluminum bone shaker and a quality steel ride."

    The sentence before that was referring to your two specific bike, but...

    You are making broad generalizations about steel and aluminum frames, and about narrow and wide tires. There are hand-made narrow racing tires that probably would give superior comfort compared to...

    Admittedly, there are not many (any?) 35mm race quality tires, but quite a few 28mm and even some 32mm tires. The article I linked had several 28s tested - including the fastest tire in the test....

    I changed my wife's tires from 23s to 25s without telling her there was a difference. She was raving about how much faster the bike felt.
  18. Wrong!...

    Wrong!

    But thanks for playing.

    All other things being equal (like the GP4000s tested for that article), wider tires have less rolling resistance. They will be a bit heavier, but that only...

    There will be visible flex in the tire, but as long as you don't feel the rim hit the ground when you hit a bump then you are not under-inflated.

    I ride 700X32 tires and keep them between 80 and...

    My experience with Altus and other budget Shimano models is that they function nearly as well as the higher end stuff when new. It does have a cheaper 'feel' but shifts are generally just as precise...

    In a pinch - like to get home following a mechanical breakdown, then a re-installed pin is fine. But lateral forces are common on derailleur chains, and thus using a chain with a re-installed pin on...

    Either the Cervelo RCA or Jamis Quest or Cannondale CAAD10. Under a strong rider there would be little difference between the three.

    Indexed derailleur shifting, in its current form, is about 30 years old. There were a few false starts with similar technology before that but the original shimano SIS system was a pretty major...

    Quite possibly in the top three dumbest reasons I have heard, but at least you acknowledge it.

    A roll-out test is a more accurate way to find your wheel circumference.

    You should find the pin you pushed back in, remove it, and get a quick-link from the LBS.
    If you can't find the pin you used to install, don't worry - it will likely identify itself before too long.
