    Which derailleur are you talking about? Front or rear or both? And by "load" I hope you don't mean too much load. Best to shift under a light pedal.

    I personally would keep the road bike and change the stem length, height and angle for more upright posture. The drop bar for me has so many hand positions that it is a huge boon for long rides.

    You should try it with the seat tilted down not up! Ouch!

    It is very redundant. I have two hybrids that after tweaking were more or less the same type of bike. I decided to convert one to drop bar. If I were you, think about a drop bar road bike. If you...

    He probably just needs to get better. I doubt going with a granny gear is going to all of the sudden allow him to hang with you (unless he can't even make it up a hill).

    You can keep your $10-20 a year and I'll keep my 10 speed!

    I'm with you brother. Disc brakes can be finicky and noisy. I think disc pads are a big time scam. Why do they cost as much as some car brake pads??? My Avid BB7s squeel like a pig when wet and I...

    I dunno. I would think a carbon bike would be completely black under the paint unless the primer is white.

    "street look" to avoid getting stolen? If that's true, could be a good buy. But if it's "street look" because of street abuse, that's a whole different story. Basically, are those scratches or is...

    I would ride it first to get a feel for what it is. Then decide what you don't like about it and pimp that mutha out!

    Like I said, there is a limit to what we individually can do. No amount of training will make you like Lance Armstrong.

    I used to pedal at 14mph avg. Bike setup now makes me 16.5mph where I have...

    I always LOL when I hear it's the engine and not the bike. The bike makes a huge difference. My personal experience is that even after several years of enthusiastic riding, you will level off to...

    I would much prefer an 11 speed drivetrain. Besides that, the Expert Carbon is one of the best looking flat bar road bikes I have ever laid my eyes on.

    Oh, I know. But do they really take the time to adjust stem height? Different stem lengths? Different seat? Crank arm length? There is just so much more to it than adjusting seatpost.

    I think your story contradicts that advice. The way a bike for sale in a shop is setup is generic and arbitrary--likely won't be optimal for you. Picking what feels best among a bunch of candidates...

    Indiana? Come on dude!

    In any case, that does bring up a good question about fenders. I would definitely want fenders for a winter bike.

    Congrats! I dig the lines on that thing. Weight is not bad considering it has disc brakes. Overall, a great purchase! Seems almost too nice for a winter beater!

    22" seems fine.

    Going back to the numbness part, it is probably one of the top two complaints in bicycling. Even with optimal fit, people will still complain of numbess, particularly the longer...

    A 2013 Trek 7.7 msrp $1850. $1400 is about a 25% discount. Up to you whether that is worth it. To me, that is definitely used condition (scratches, brake surface).

    I think it just takes a while to get used to the riding when you are starting out. From experience, I went through several seats and a different set of grips. Now I ride a road bike seat and the...

    After the first couple of months and 1 or 2 falls, you will probably never fall again.

    I had Shimano SPD, then SPD-SL, and now Speedplay Light Action. They were all pretty good but in terms of...

    You would seriously choose an aluminum frame bike over carbon/composite when you are looking for comfort? Doesn't make any sense. Still, if you feel a particular bike fits you best, then that's...

    Carbon handlebars do soften the ride somewhat--just as carbon forks and frames do. How much? Really only a little. Maybe even borderline perceptable. Still, if you have the time, inclination and...
