    Yeah, another happy ending :thumb: I don't know how you can NOT take it for a ride, even with the longer cranks. :)

    I've had some random threads come lose on Conti tires, but never though much of it. I just trimmed the threads and kept an eye on it. I doubt you'll have any issues due to the lose of thread.

    Request 3-4 while you're at it. They will also include several red o-rings. Although the tabs don't break like the used to, I guess they just get weak over time. Can be frustrating.

    Look for a jersey that describes their fabric as lightweight and super breathable - a fast wicking performance fabric. There's a ton of them out there, but don't cheap out on it. There is a...

    Kudos for providing riders the opportunity for a nice leisurely Sunday ride. It's nice to be able to back off the hard rides and enjoy a more relaxed pace on a Sunday morning.

    I'd be inclined to not waste my time with Performance and take it to a shop that you have a high degree of confidence in. I'm guessing you already have a good relationship with a shop with good...

    Even if they didn't take it for a test ride, I'd at least expect they would put it on the stand and run it through all the gears, on both the large and small chain rings, just to make sure it is...

    Although I don't enjoy the extra hour of washing the bike, shoes, etc., riding in the rain can be very refreshing on a hot day. The lightening I can do without.

    Some are suggesting to just go buy a 56 or 58cm frame and start making your own adjustments to tweak your fit. Not a good choice based on your last experience, IMO. If you bought something off of...
