    They are very comfortable, and the design strikes me as being well-refined. For example, there are small indentations for thumb comfort when riding on the bar tops (below). In addition, the flat...

    Got some of these, like them very much. Look on eBay; you can sometimes find a good deal. I got a more or less new bar for around $65 shipped.

    I have not bought from them, but from what I know, they are good people and I'm sure they know their stuff. If I were in your shoes I would be inclined to trust their judgment.

    In another BF thread I saw a link for this Columbia "Quickest Wicking" sleeveless base layer, which is being closed out by Sierra Trading Post ($12.99 each).

    I got a few, and they work well for me...

    This thread brings to mind a couple of LBS that are local to me.

    One of them has been around here for at least 25 years. In the past they sold Trek, but their volume was insufficient, so I believe...

    I have an older steel Trek 560 which had a water bottle screw rust in place (it was that way when I got the bike). I had to use a Dremel to slot it before it could be removed, as the hex hole was...

    That kind of distance with that kind of average speed with that kind of climbing is pretty respectable. But I must inform you, the correct spelling is GUADS, not quads. Here on BF you're supposed to...

    When I was diagnosed with hypertension some years back, I immediately became much more conscious of salt, and up until a few months ago, if you'd asked me how much salt I consume, I'd have said that...

    I've read that simply rinsing the mouth with carb-containing beverages can elicit a positive physiological response, so it seems to be clear that using...

    Or, watch on Craigslist & eBay. You can set up auto-searches on both venues, and either get the results in an RSS feed, or via email. If you're patient and careful, you can find decent deals.

    +1 on Lezyne pumps. 120 psi takes some arm/hand strength-- theoretically achievable, but in practice I don't carry a pressure gauge with me on the bike, so basically I pump until squeezing the tire...

    I'm no expert, but as I understand it, proper fit is something that happens within a range of values. I have road bikes with different length seat tubes and top tubes, and I can make them fit by...

    Call/email them (BD) and ask. I have never had issues with the 700x25C Gatorskins; it is the only tire I run on that bike. But they have made some changes since 2010, like the tapered steerer.
