    There are a few roads near me that I rode on about 10 years ago and they were very nice. Right around then, they did some really intense chip & seal and ruined them. Like really bad. 10 years later,...

    I made a whole thread about this, much to everyone's chagrin, but I just can't be bothered to mess with a camera for a daily commute. It would suck out all the joy of riding my commute. As soon as I...

    I won't argue that a thru-axle design isn't easier, but it's seriously not hard to get your QR wheel fully seated. My experience is limited to floor bikes at the shop and changing many flats on disc...

    To add to monogodo's information, houses in Denton are listing for roughly $145-155K for a reasonably nice 2bd/2bth, 1,400 sq. ft. house. BUT, because the market is so hot, you can expect people to...

    Hmm, Trek needs to sort out their webpage if that is the case. A 26x1 is, as you said, 590mm. That's English sizing, also a 650A. That would also make a lot more sense for this bike. I don't see a...

    It is a strange question. I'm trying to frame the discussion that we seem to constantly have on whether or not that new wheelset will really make any difference in terms of apparel.

    For example,...

    Because they're using decimal sizing, I can only assume this is the same as a 26 inch MTB with an ISO wheel diameter of 559mm.

    EDIT: I think I've seen a similar road bike from Diamondback with the...

    Well, I might as well ad my worthless input while I'm at it.

    For me, a go-fast-have-fun road bike has to have rim brakes. It's mostly tradition. Besides, modern rim brakes are freaking awesome....

    That's the thing about humidity. Anything works well up to a point. I'm a fan of cycling caps, but in real humidity, it gets saturated. The upside I've noticed using a cycling cap is that when it is...

    Well, what's the difference between a button-up shirt off the hanger at Target vs. a nice, fitted shirt at a high end department store? Usually much more thought has gone into the fit and cut of the...

    So yeah, I talked myself back into disc brakes. :lol: It looks like I can make the money happen by mid-September, so I think I'm going to go for it. I'll be sure to post a separate thread once I get...
  12. Have you ever regretted a high end apparel purchase?

    It's easy for us to argue the finer points of upgrading your gear. Lots of talk about whether or not minor weight savings are worth the expense, and lots of talk about saddles, shoes and bar...

    I've been tempted to post a topic asking if people ever regretted high end apparel purchases. I mean, you can argue all day whether or not that thousand dollar upgrade to lose a quarter of a pound...

    As far as I can tell, they both have 105 11 speed. I would buy the carbon over the aluminum for a difference of 50 bucks. It is going to be the base entry level carbon for Trek, so it won't be as...

    It's not cheap, but Rapha has already been mentioned twice. I will add that any of their Pro Team jerseys will be awesome. I've ridden most recently in 95 degree weather with a mostly black pro team...

    This was true when 105 was still 10 speed (5700), but with the 5800 11 speed 105? I think if you could ride a bike blindfolded, the only way you would be able to tell the difference between 105 and...

    Simple Green concentrate can hurt aluminum if you leave it sitting in Simple Green. If used for a simple cleaning and thoroughly rinsed, there is no issue with using it to clean your bike parts, etc....

    It's definitely not as standardized as it could be, but it's not far off. The UST thing with Mavic was more marketing than anything. So now everyone else has to label their own standard to avoid...

    Yes and no. With a perfect tire and a perfect rim, not at all. But the majority of wheels I've set up tubeless for customers, especially on mountain bikes, you always get some seepage from the bead...

    I noticed a difference when I went to a carbon crank, but that was because I went from a 90's era Campy Record alloy crankset to a ~2010 carbon ultra-torque crankset. Huge difference there. Any...

    I've been running tubeless on the Domane for a while and have yet to have a flat. But now I've probably jinxed myself. :lol: One section last night was just littered with debris and broken bottles....

    Bikes are going to fit different between both manufacturer and model.

    I'm 6'2" with a decently long inseam (saddle height of 80 cm) and almost always end up on a 56. But then again, that's on CX...
