    I had five, now I am down to three and trying to downsize further to two. I ride on the road only, and I have decided that having one main bike plus a back-up (which also acts as a commuter/beater...

    At 5'10", the M/L Giant TCR should theoretically work but not for everyone. The TCR is designed more as a race bike and the top tube is a bit long and the headtube short (which is what works well for...

    The 9-speed Sora components aren't too bad. I also don't think $500 is too far off, but offer a little lower ($400 maybe?) and see what happens. Every time I try to sell something, I first get a...

    I have recently owned or still own:

    - Zanconato lugged steel
    - Seven Elium carbon/ti
    - Tsunami aluminum
    - Giant Defy aluminum

    To be perfectly honest, if I had to keep just one bike, the...

    Nowadays, pretty much no big manufacturer uses the BSA standard; at least none that I can think of.

    That sucks, hope you heal quickly.

    And put a chain catcher on that thing :) I can't imagine buying a nice carbon frame and not using one; seems like really cheap insurance.

    I have been using the Yakima Forklift on my Nissan Murano for a little over two years now and have had no issues. It seems to hold the bike in securely (even at interstate speeds), and my gas mileage...

    I don't know, I guess it is to me. When I do a 30-mile ride with 2,500 feet of climbing, I think of it as pretty hilly.

    First, just want to make sure that you understand you can't just upgrade your brakes to discs if your frame isn't made to take them in the first place. In that case, you would have to buy a whole new...

    Nice first bike. But for this thread, at least pull the dork disc off the rear wheel before posting a picture, would you? That automatically makes it not.

    I had one a while back. It didn't feel "soft" (size 60, and I am 225 lbs); in fact it was a quite nice ride.

    I took my rear Zonda wheel in for a very minor true once (most people wouldn't have even bothered with it), and the first ride after I picked them up I broke a spoke. Maybe just a coincidence, but...

    I would go with the carbon frame / 105 group. I really like my aluminum Defy with 105, but the carbon bike seems like a decent deal.

    Looks promising, but needs a second bottle cage and a proper sideshot (also preferably without the giant seat bag :)). A bit of color wouldn't hurt also; maybe white saddle and bartape?

    Well, we could argue you were not fitted very well in the first place, or your body (hamstring flexibility etc.) has changed over the years; hence you lowered your saddle and there is nothing wrong...

    I am not sure I would call 1-2 cm trivial. My knees (and my butt, if the saddle is too high) will let me know after a little bit (after about half an hour on the bike) if my saddle is off by 2 cm.
