    Personally, I find it difficult to get worked up about any mass-produced carbon bike. Personally, I see these bikes as commodities. At least Trek moved the rear brake up to the stays, where it...

    In my experience, it's very simple:

    1. Lots of people have terrible spacial sense and terrible ability to detect closing speed. They are only barely in control of their car. They don't...

    Kit: easier to say this than "jersey and shorts". It also implies a matching set of jersey and shorts. It's a useful word.

    Cockpit: it's not just a handlebar. Implies both stem and handlebar...

    I agree with the comment that that road bike is about as upright as you're going to get on a road bike. If it still doesn't work for her, maybe she doesn't want a road bike?

    Ride with people who know what they're doing, problem solved. Also, you seriously feel safer in traffic riding alone than in a group? Can't say I agree.

    Perhaps a poor choice of words in my...

    I'll take this thread at face value, although the degree of ignorance in the question is hard to fathom from someone with even a passing interest in cycling.

    The Forte tires you reference (likely the Pro Lite or Pro Lite Plus) are identical to the Nashbar ones I posted. Both tires seem to be made by Maxxis: they share the same side tread pattern as the...

    I personally don't like riding with any sort of visible electronics. I do like Strava and similar apps, mainly for the social aspects though. The new "Flyby" feature is something I've wanted for a...

    About 25 years ago when I was about 13, I was a member of a touring bike group run by the Jr. High I attended. We were on a multi day tour about 300 miles from home with about 15 kids (all my age)...

    I've said it before here: I have ~9 year old 6600 on my main road bike and I really can't justify replacing it. It works really well and I like the polished silver look better than the matte...

    I can attest to the fact that these are great. I use them primarily for running but they work well on a hot day on the bike. Look no further.

    ProLink Gold attracts the least dirt of any chain lube I've used. Also, I think the black stuff is at least partially aluminum oxide from the chainrings.
