    As I posted, the victim's cousin via FB stated that she was informed that witnesses saw him texting. News was written before that and/or wasn't privy to that fact.

    A paved path through Peters would be an eyesore in my opinion.

    I just upgraded mine and my wives bikes to 50-34 x 11-28 11 spd. and they came with short Ultegra RDs in the group package. 11-28 is the max for short per Shimano. It shifts awesome!

    I'd email Felt and ask about the diff between the two. As for endurance having a short TT and taller head tube, that's for comfort--makes the rider more upright and thus less weight on arms and less...

    My wife's road bike has a 170 crank and her mtb has a 175 crank. In similar proportion, our daughter's road bike has a 165 and her mtb has a 170. FWIW, I run a 175 on all my bikes. Anyway, I'm...

    I'm 6-1 and ride a Kona Hei Hei Supreme. It's a carbon, full-sus 29er. For your height (similar to me), you want a 29er hands down--that's what all the XC racers who are worth anything are on even if...

    Race-fit wind jacket?

    Any recos for a sleek-cut, pocket-stuffable wind jacket? I have a Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier that is just ok--it's better than what I used to use (an older, casual rider model PI jacket) but its arms...

    A lighter wheel set and tires will make the biggest performance difference on any bike. Of course, it's one of the most expensive upgrades.

    Agree, it's a fitness bike. CX tires (cyclocross--knobby like a mtb but skinny) and slime tubes (tubes preloaded with slime) if there's goathead thorns and such.

    Good manners
