100% agree. I love mine.
Mini v-brakes. Use road levers, all the benefits of v-brakes, none of the crap of canti's. Basic tektro ones are cheap, super easy to setup and stop the bike, quickly. I can fit 40 mm tires with my...
It was epic. I'm pretty sure thats when mentioning tarckbike would get you banned.
Anything that involved Merton.
Hey Rob. Hows things.
I have the unit and ditched the ardents for 2.4 f/r. Chunky monkey front and mountain king rear. Extra squish is nice, find the climbing and braking of the mountain king much better than the...
In the rain you could a try a rain cape. I use one. It looks goofy but works really well and keeps me from sweating in the rain.
Wear easily removable layers. T shirt and arm warmers instead of a long sleave shirt allows me to start off cool and peel off the warmers as needed. I also weara windproof vest witha mesh back, and...
I have the unit and love it.
There are several cheaper and easier options you can try in place of a suspension fork if $$$ is a concern to help with the wirst/arm pounding you might encounter.
I know you said no v-brakes, but Mini v-brakes are an option. I have the basic tektro 926 ones, stock pads suck but all stock pads suck. Works with brifters no problem, no travel agent needed, stops...
More or less. End of the thumb is abit flat though.
Cleaning lube off with a rag. Spinning the wheel backwards and the rag caught between the chain and cog and went through, as did my thumb. Rag must have been wrapped around my hand or something, no...
I have read those reviews, which is why I asked the OP. I meant cold, -20C/-4F range and below.

I have some primaloft skiing gloves that i only wear below -10c. Too warm otherwise. I also use hunting gloves from basspro, they have a waterproof liner i them. Superwarm but they dont breath so...
I've had no problem with using road wheels on my cx bike riding my local mtb trails. Used open pro's in the past. Current set up is a23 rear wheel, front is a bontranger race x lite. Race x is a...
Axiom streamliner racks are designed to eliminate heel strike. Mine works.
If you cant afford winter spd boots, dont want to switch to platforms and wear vented shoes, options to keep you feet warm are limited.
Toe clips or fixie straps on platforms would allow for warmer...
Alot depends on the conditions of your commute. Usually the roads in the GTA are salted so much that the roads are dry most of the winter. For those days I ride my cross bike with 32mm tires. When...
I always found that rain jackets cause me to overheat to much. Pit zips are a must, but I had a hard time findng some under$100.
For commuting i use a rain cape. It works really great, keeps...
That J&G jacket looks great. Good price and pit zips for venting.
