    I've never understood the "dated geometry" concern. Pretty sure geometry hasn't changed much since Euclid. :roflmao2:

    I've bought two bikes from BD. Had a good experience both times. If you're...

    How cold does it get in the UK?

    I've ridden down to -15F and never noticed that area getting unusually cold. At least not any colder than the rest of me. I wear my usual shorts down to about 35F,...

    Went down this morning. Was looking in my mirror at traffic when I dropped both wheels into a parallel seam in the concrete. Hit the ground fast and hard.

    Just checking in. This morning on my way to work I rolled the Kestrel past the 500 mile mark. Not too bad for my first month of riding this bike.

    I wound up changing the stem to a 90mm which is...

    +2

    First thing I thought about when I saw the requirements. If you went fixed gear and were daring you could even go without brakes to remove even more points of mechanical failure. Myself, I'd...

    My hybrid bike with an aluminum fork rides smooth as silk. Smoother than my full-carbon road bike and both of my steel road bikes. I suspect it's primarily due to the 32mm tires (vs 23/25s on the...

    I converted my old Panasonic from stem to bar-end shifting. Best mod I ever did to that bike. My favorite style of shifter is the modern brifter unit, but bar-ends are a close 2nd.

    Do they dictate how fast you are required to drive? I'm guessing if you drove your car at 3 mph they may request you switch back to the bike.

    But that's my ornery side talking. :D

    The only winter tires I would find beneficial are studded. If you're not riding in snow and ice then you don't need to go that route.

    I've ridden my standard bike tires on dry pavement down below...

    To be fair the business probably had no clue the sprinklers were set up that way, at least beforehand. I'm guessing they hired a contractor to construct the building, and the contractor hired a...

    I would go the cheap used route. Your new bike will likely get trashed. I have a dedicated winter beater mountain bike that takes the abuse. It also allows me to leave my studded tires mounted and...

    I tried toe clips for a while, didn't much care for it. I like platforms better than clips, but I like clipless better than platforms.

    Ride what you like. :)

    My Diamondback came with Ergon clones. The shape was kind of weird to get used to. They're a lot more sensitive to having them rotated to the correct position with regard to your fit position.

    One of my bikes is still rolling the original front tube (and tire for that matter) after 5 1/2 years and 5,200 miles. I'll probably have to put new rubber on the front before I hit 6k though. I'll...
