    Tried bunny jumping a log, but the front end came down too fast and the crank gear hit the log. The bike completely stopped, but I didn't, took flying lessons over the bars right into gravel that...

    :thumb:What 10 Wheels said. I'd only consider the Defy or Allez. Both are solid bikes backed by very good manufacturers. There's a perception that when you buy on-line you get a great bargain. ...

    I'm not big on recommending one bike brand, but at your price point, there is one that fits perfectly, the Giant ATX. Also, as a newb, you need to develop a relationship with a bike shop. ...

    CRAP!!! (I'd say something stronger but the mods would delete it.) EIGHT, (8) of the fourteen drive side spoke eyelets have hairline cracks. I wouldn't have seen them if you guys hadn't pointed it...

    Thanks everyone. I didn't notice any spoke holes, but I will inspect carefully. Due to the damaged decals, I'll take a little off the $100 and put $90 on them, provided the spoke eyelets look good.
  6. Need Help With Price of Bontrager Wheels

    I'm a volunteer with a local church group that refurbishes old bikes for the needy and underprivileged. The donation bikes we get are the typical department store low end bikes along with older bike...

    I stopped buying new and buy late model used. That cuts the price to about half, but still paying about $1K per bike. But it's not just the initial purchase. After we buy, we have to get better...

    zooming right in to 2013! Just picked up a Garmin Edge 510. Finally going to go with a Garmin. Paid $200 with all the attachments, new battery, two mounts in the original box.

    What you should do is not sell either until your wife decides which bike she likes. Then the decision which to sell is easy.

    As usual, I'm in complete agreement with wrk101. When I flip an old MTB, I use as many used parts as possible. The cost of restoring one with new parts is prohibitive. As an example, the cost of...

    IMHO, for an around town commuter/grocery getter, buy the Schwinn.
    If you plan on doing any mountain trail riding, get the Marin.

    +1, This
    I would follow merlinextraligh advise and buy dual pivot brakes. They will increase your braking power/capability.

    Thanks for the input. I think I'll leave the Rovals on the bike for a while to try them out. But I won't be parting with the Ksyriums as I really like those wheels and have had good success with...

    Yes my experience with the Ksyriums has been very good. Just trying to find out about the Rovals. Like you, I'm not at all familiar with that brand.

    Sounds like you had a good ride. I don't ride alone anymore. All my rides are with clubs. IMHO, even the bad rides are better than riding alone.

    Cooler weather here in NC. A little hard on the breathing. Still rode at a 17.3 average over 45 miles.
  17. Which Wheel To Go With, Ksyriums Or Roval Fusee?

    I just picked up a two year old Specialized Roubaix. It's a lower end Roubaix, but the seller upgraded the wheelset with some Roval Fusee SLH 23s from his 2012 Tarmac. I have a set of 2012, Ksyrium...

    For a few years I rode with double sided, SPD 2-bolt style pedals using MTB shoes on road bikes. It was very comfortable to walk in those shoes and I used the same shoes for all bike riding, MTB,...

    +1, Just to add to the 12 years, I just checked my almost ancient Shimano 600, 8-speed shifters from the 90s mounted on a vintage Nishiki. Sure enough, it's a double and it has trim for both gears.

    Wait until you're 10 miles from your car, a hungry, diseased wolf has spotted you riding on a trail and you have only one spare tube. Both tubes will start leaking where the goatheads poked at them...

    First point, I didn't say buy some high end, full carbon bike. If you read the full post I recommended rides within the $1200 budget posted by the OP.

    OP, you're not new to cycling as you currently ride a hybrid. I'd buy the Defy 2 disc or if you can find an even better left over, like a Defy 1, I'd go for that. The old rule of thumb still...

    If you're worried about it being stolen, the DB is the best buy of the three you mentioned. I don't see much difference between the Giant and the Kona from a theft standpoint.
