    I am thinking about trying a saddle with a channel. Though I'm fairly sure that padding is the wrong thing for me, for the standard reasoning: your sit-bones sink down into the soft cushion, thereby...

    I went through a bout of prostatitis this past fall and am still recovering from it, so upward fore tilt would put too much pressure on the perineum for me. I'm basically totally level or just...

    Thanks for the replies, this is good to know. I'm a bit surprised that the local bike shop sold me those pedals in the first place, as they know I'm a roadie and they knew what bike they were going...

    I don't understand this overwrought response to my reasoning for suggesting a fork-mounted workstand is superior to one clamped to a post. I made a simple choice as a consumer. If you're just using...

    Fork mount. Always. It's just way better than the ones you clamp your seat tube or seat post onto. Like others have said, you can spin your bike around, which is amazing, and nothing gets in the way...
