    I've worked in 7(ish) bike shops in my life and sold a zillion different brands. Here's my story. When I was younger... I ****ing hated Trek. Least favorite brand in the world. No good reasons,...

    Handsome does a pretty cool bike too! Maybe a little bit more cruiserish off the shelf? Probably lighter too. Fairdale only make a few different models but they revolve around a pretty cool...

    Contrary to popular beliefs and movies, San Francisco is relatively flat. The hills are steep but there's easy routes around them. And honestly, I don't hang out with people that "live up on the...

    First, get the bearing out of the wheel. Most of the times there will be VERY SMALL print on the side of the cartridge with some numbers. Obviously, the diameter needs to match but also the angles...

    Not sure if you understand the point of a trailer. Or if you've ever ridden with a trailer. Curious what trailer you've used.

    I own this bike. With the stock Kysrium wheels it rode like hell. Personally, I hate that wheelset so I put some DT Swiss's on it. Now it rides 10x better. At $3000 you aren't going to go wrong.
