    I like that Peter and his wife are having fun and willing to put something like this out there. Anyone who criticizes this is taking life too seriously.

    I give kudos when someone I'm following completes a ride that I'm interested in enough to drill into the ride and look at the details. I don't give kudos for commutes and I kind of find it annoying...

    I wish I would have written down the size of the screws. Usually, I'm pretty good about documenting that stuff. I want to say they were M3 diameter, but I'm not sure.

    Orbea really should provide...

    I encounter the same issue when doing a quick reply, but if I go to the advanced reply it works fine. I'm running IE11. Maybe that's the issue :)

    Orbea really didn't make it very easy. They designed the fender mounts so they would be hidden if not used, but that design makes them tricky to use. It took me a while to figure out how to mount...

    Ah yes, that part is tricky. I bought small L brackets from my local hardware store to mount the fenders. Here are a few pictures. The nice part with the L brackets, in particular on the front...

    Iím not sure if 28mm will work. SKS says they will work with 28mm, but not all 28mm tires are actually 28mm. Some are larger and some are smaller. I was running the SKS P35ís with 25mm. Chances...

    That gave me a good chuckle. I'll have to remember that one.

    I guess that's why my rain bike is decked out in Di2 and my sun bike just has Ultegra (e.g. the rain bike is better than the sun...

    I think $500 is a little high for a 2007, but not all that high if it's in great condition. I bought a new 2011 in 2013 for about $650 before tax, but I called over 50 bikes shops throughout the...

    Similar to everyone else here, I typically carry one water bottle when the ride is 30 mile or less. Longer than that and I'll carry two. Also, most of my rides will have me going by a water...

    Find a bike shop that will give you a 30 day return on a saddle. I went through many saddles until I found one that works. Some saddles would be killing me at 30 miles. I finally found one that I...

    I'm signed up and looking forward to it, though the group I'm riding with will probably drop me like a sack of potatoes.

    I have an Avant as well and love it. I use it as my rain bike, but have ridden three centuries on it when there have been scattered showers. I love the bike. Enjoy it!

    With that said, things seem to be trending toward 25s. There have been...
