    They do OK. I usually ride the bike on crushed limestone which is smoother than gravel usually. They certainly do better than the 700x25s that I have on my road bike.

    If you have to limit your sugar intake, you may need to eat more complex carbs. These don't digest as fast as sugar, so you may need to slow down some.

    Where were you cramping? Muscles? Stomach?

    I like the old-school chain lube: wax. I've also used products like ProLink Gold, White Lightning, and others. They all work well if used frequently.

    "Motobecane 6061al". That probably means the frame is made out of alloy 6061 aluminum material. Is there a model name like...

    Sounds like an element of buyer's remorse in there. You really wanted a Trek Domane, didn't you! ;)

    I'm 215 lbs and run 700x25s at 100/105 on smooth roads. I'll go down to 90/100 if the road is rough chip and tar. I've never had a pinch flat at those pressures.

    I doubt that a new seat is going to help your hands much. It does look like the nose of the seat is pointed down some and that would push you forward onto the handlebars more.

    Pinarello <> Pinerolo. Looks to me that they just might be trying to create a false impression there.

    You fit within the height guidelines; however, what is your inseam? The 56cm says 31″ - 33″.

    I guess that I should have put in one of the smilie things as I was joking somewhat. However the term "Appalachian-American" is written into some laws.

    The combination of the words "Pain" and "Big Toe" causes a knee-jerk reaction in me. The word "Gout" shouts from my lips.

    Hopefully it is not gout, but a simple blood test should rule it out if...

    As someone born and raised in Kentucky (and actually have one leg longer than the other), I object to the term "hillbilly". The correct term is "Appalachian-American".

    Well the Pinarello is red and red is faster. ;)

    I think $1700 is too much for either. You could get a new bike for that much and a 2015's 105 is all but equal to an 2008's Dura Ace. Plus it will...

    If you live near the Katy Trail, that Trek 7.3 of yours is about the perfect bike for it.

    Ironically, you want to cross over the Hwy 67 bridge into Alton, Illinois.

    First get on Machens Road then turn right on Hwy 94. There are some side roads, but Hwy 94 isn't all that busy.
