    I actually don't think their pricing is completely out of line. Low, yes, but maybe not unsustainable. So far everyone is comparing their pricing to companies that may or may not use similar sales...

    You're not alone. Some others have said similar things in other threads where the Helix is discussed. I try not to support companies that are either so inept as to not know their market and...

    That's awesome. Spray-on EL! I love it when companies do this sort of thing. I still sort of want a Schwinn Vestige.

    You've pretty much nailed it.

    I've heard all manner of ignorance spout from the mouths of dealers so I'm not sure I'd use their incompetence as a litmus test for the ability of a part.

    Nifty stuff there Jur. My last experience with wax was making candles on a single burner stove, with the associated disaster zone of wax splatter. That looks like a great solution.

    As a rather pricey alternative to the above two suggestions, the Mu is a perfect candidate for a belt drive.

    Jur, are you talking about the full chain dunk in the wax technique? Have you compared...

    Absolutely not. By choosing a folder you automatically add complexity, cost, weight, and non-standard components (usually) to an equivalent non-folding bike. Unless there are other reasons to have a...

    It might depend a on the length of your top tube (virtual) or perhaps the exact kids seat model. I kept my saddle height normal and had room to move forward off the saddle at stops, as per usual. I'm...

    I'm not sure there is anything approaching consensus about the "best" brakes out there. I think that there is very little separating many of the better options, so go for looks, weight, price, or...

    Hey holiday, mind sharing your decision making process for choosing that electric system? As a fellow Cetma owner, I've been considering my options for electrifying, and I'd love to see how you ended...

    It would help to know the actual range of sweep you're looking for. If you want to stay with a "normal" mtb bar, there are several options around the 11-12 mark. I have a Bontrager Big Sweep (12)...

    I know Thor carries wheels HERE. And I see wheels on eBay pretty often.

    I had one on a previous commuter bike. I purchased it for the same reasons, namely that it looked great but was much cheaper than the Tubus equivalent. It worked perfectly well for commuting. No rust...

    Just wanted to offer a minor correction. The rack is a Racktime Add-It. Distributed by Ortlieb in the US.

    Nice choice of kit there. I have the same combo (but the Luxos B) on two bikes and love it. I do wish sometimes for the handlebar remote and look forward to your impressions of using that piece.

    Here's a chart for tire/rim widths: LINK

    You can find your rim width by checking for an ETRTO label somewhere on your rim. Should read something like 622x17.

    I prefer wider tires for...

    They work okay as long as there is sufficient grip either from tightness of the fit, or through friction. For example, i tried putting a stainless bottle in a plastic cage and it bounced out while...

    Sorry I can't provide speeds as I never have any idea what speed I'm going. But winds have to be very gusty/stormy to push you around. Basically the same strength wind that would nudge you around...

    Shimano released the ST-RS685 last year. Non-series, but equivalent to Ultegra.

    Do you happen to have any pics of your Tern Node inside the Flite? I didn't know it was possible to get their 24" bikes into an airline legal(ish) suitcase. I'd be curious to see the amount of...

    For lower speed rain rides, I'm a big fan of rain capes paired with a set of full coverage fenders. My legs stay dry, although my feet still get wet. The best part is the airflow and ventilation. At...
