    No particular brand is particularly favorable. Apart from the obvious things like valve type and tube size/width, some things to consider are valve length (needs to be deep enough for the rim),...

    If the weight is comparable to a regular alloy clincher, then I don't see what's the point of going carbon/alloy other than aesthetics.

    Appears that both have endurance/sport geometry. Having owned both Ti and carbon, I'd have to say modern carbon frame construction (more manipulation in tube shape and material properties than Ti)...

    Yes there is, but more noticeable in the rear than the front.

    I'll probably go with the Bianchi, with the Schwinn 564 a close second. The other bikes seem too small/large for you.

    Thanks for the info, guys. Looks like SJBC and Team Fremont are organized and have fees. For context, in SoCal people regularly ride laps around the Rose Bowl or Hughes Park for evening training and...

    Are there any weeknight crit training rides in the Bay Area? The Ardenwood lap featured in the Early Bird series seems to be a good one, but do people train there during the week?

    I realize this thread is 5 years old, but I am wondering if people do any weeknight crit training on this course (Ardenwood)?

    My Corsa Lites were made for 8/9/10 speed so I cannot upgrade to 11s. Make sure you get a version that suits your purposes.

    I want to say that's a 2008-2010 Cross Bow. Could be a team issue color scheme.

    Apart from encouraging you to balance your front/rear brake usage, I will say that different brake pads wear down at different rates, and that it also depends on the type/condition of your rims, as...

    I have a Langster of the same era and have also experienced some issues with the rear tire clearance. I cannot run tires larger than 23 mm without moving the axle backwards in the dropout, otherwise...

    Could be a slow leak, either at the valve or elsewhere. You mentioned the tube being more expensive; perhaps it is a lightweight tube (thinner walls) more geared towards racing? Super light tubes...

    If the 700x28-35 tube had thinner walls compared to the 700x38-45 tubes, that could explain the subjective difference in ride quality. That would be akin to the difference between regular tubes and...

    A trip of 3 miles is around the cutoff I have for tolerating a cruiser/townie bike. Anything longer and I find myself preferring a more road-oriented bike. I commute on a cyclocross bike with a rear...

    I have similar inline adjusters and experience the same problems. They're on my CX bike, which in my mind exacerbates the problem. My model does not unscrew completely, but perhaps the OP's does....

    I have a 12-28 on the roadie and a 12-30 on the cross bike. For the type of riding I do, I really dislike the missing 16t on the latter.
