    Edit: The guys at Giant said they successfully fit 2.2" knobby 29er tires on it. But I'd worry about mud/rock clearance a bit.

    Rode some older iterations of the Muirwoods and always felt pretty...

    Seat too low or gear too high possibly. Stay hydrated and having a decent diet can help. Stretching and a solid rest day or two also.

    Human drivers are also confused by track standing cyclist. However, I like the self driving car's approach to unforeseen situations as "stop and figure it out". Especially compared to the typical...

    Just weighed our Large sized Toughroad SLR2. 25.5 lbs as it comes. If anyone was interested. It was also nice riding the large instead of the medium as it gave me a better idea for how it fits me....

    Sorry to double post but I really gotta quote this


    I agree with this so much. I have a $1600 CX bike, with really light/fast 35mm slicks on it. A great bike in many ways, fits well, pretty fast....

    A lot of people will tell you to get skinny slicks. Like 1.5" or less. They're not necessarily wrong, but I think skinny slicks on a MTB aren't all they're cracked up to be on this platform. Wider...

    Tell that to a bike with a short cage rear derailleur and a large range cassette, or even just a chain being one link too short... Cross chaining can absolutely care about tooth counts in a variety...

    Composite is pretty much the layering of any materials. I've had aluminum bikes that were "composite" based on how they were constructed. So yes, your typical plastic carbon fiber bike is a composite...

    I wasn't sold on this bike from the product specs, even though I'm always a proponent of having nice, voluminous tires on pretty much every bike (without going full fatbike). But I built up our first...

    Great tire, but last I checked they had about zero flat protection. They roll amazingly, and weigh very little for the size, but I think they might not be quite what OP is looking for. Unless they...

    Nitto Bullmoose has a steady, but not extreme sweep. Also a stem/bar in one if that's your thing:

    BB7s are much better than 5s. But I still kinda loathe the time I know I have to adjust mine. Though I've figured out enough tricks to be able to get them "almost just right" pretty quickly. If you...
  14. Any functional difference in Alivio vs Deore 3x9 cranksets for Hollowtech II??

    My beater commuter has needed a BB since I got it. Nothing too bad, just rusty and some squeaks here and there. Mechanically I really dislike square taper BB/Cranks. Even though I'm a lightweight,...

    those bearings are often about $2.50 at your LBS, BTW. Might as well bring it in, get the correct new one, slap some grease on it and reinstall new bearings.

    there can be manufacturing flaws, pre-damaged mating surfaces, or simply more force exerted on the part than it can withstand. It is not simply a matter of bolts holding on crank arms, the interface...

    I'd go for reliability, durability, utility, etc before lightweight... I can't say I've ever noticed much of a difference in weight between panniers, even holding in my hand, let alone strapped to a...

    You seem to be overthinking how complicated it is to pop into a local shop and do some shopping. Last time I visited san diego I was riding a bike too large for me, in a city I've never been in, and...

    Main commuter was selected for a variety of reasons, cost and resilience being key, then i made modifications in case of theft. I wanted it to be extremely recognizable if stolen. It was just put to...

    If it had a regular fork it's a great idea, IMO. I've been thinking of 650b'ing my CX bike for a long time for massively improved handling and tire clearance. But I just can't see how much good a...

    I tend to agree with that. Until last night one commuter had platforms, one has MTB clipless. (The platform pedaled bike was stolen last night)

    Anyways, the power output doesn't concern me, it's...
