    I think I can understand what you said. with gel, load is spread over a larger area but tissues that should not be supporting any load is taking a share as well. Is that what you imply? If so, how is...
  2. sitting on gel: good or bad? what exactly are the pros/cons?

  6. can I use a spoke that is slightly longer than the others on a wheel?

    Recently a spoke (Sapim cx-ray) on my front wheel (road bike) broke off. The nipple at the rim broke in half, causing the spoke to fall off. At closer look I noticed the spoke was twisted at about 90...

    I did not weigh the test bikes. When I lifted the ad2 test bike, it felt similar to my defy comp 3. But that comparison may not be fair since I have upgraded the wheelset/saddle on my comp 3 and...

    I think you are right. Read somewhere in Taiwanese forum that Giant has actually "downgraded" their defy nomenclature, such that 2015 "pro" is comparable to 2014 "advanced" and 2015 "advanced" is...

    thank you. I will look into that. though I am still perplexed why my stock tiagra brake pad holder does not provide a means to adjust the brake pad, it seems like such a basic safety need.
