    +1.

    Start thinking modest upgrades when things where out. Upgrading parts piecemeal is a sure road to spending a lot of money that would be better spent on a new bike.

    I tend to think bigger is not necessarily better. The larger the rotor, the more likelihood that you will encounter rubbing issues simply from deviation from true. Hope that's not the case for you....

    I have a 1x setup. I do not run a wide range cassette simply because I don't encounter hilly terrain all that often. The main benefit is simplicity. It is very liberating only having to worry...

    If possible, get a road bike to go with that bike. Bikes cannot be all things, although hybrids do an admirable job trying. Ultimately, no matter what you do, you will probably not be completely...

    I would expect to have a discount off MSRP for year-end closeouts.

    I bought a new Trek in the spring and paid MSRP. But my dealer was willing to swap tire sizes and install a kickstand for no...

    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.
