    And goalie gear, which I understand is horrifically expensive.

    Incidentally, I am jealous that you get to live in a civilised country (Stephen Harper and Jacques Parizeau excepted). :(

    My 2 worth:

    I have the Lumotec IQ Cyo T with a Shimano hub. And I love that thing. I'm a confident, 24/7, all-weather cyclist with it. When cars see it, they stop. I think they think I'm a...

    I agree to a point. For anything that's going to be used with any degree of seriousness, yes. But for a kid's bike that's only going to be ridden up and down the block (do they let kids do that...

    Has anyone done the GR2R series? If so, what's it like? Am I going to be ridiculed with uproarious laughter if I don't have a $15K (this is Seattle, after...

    Personally, from what I've seen, all of the bariatric surgery procedures have an extremely high (>50%) complication rate. It truly is the thermonuclear option.

    True story - the repair manager at an LBS here in Seattle told me he loves BD because that's where he gets most of his repair business. Not from the bikes being defective, mind you, but from people...

    It's the same steel bike you'd get at your LBS. At about 1/3 the price. And without getting any 'tude from the minimum-wage stoner kid who couldn't even be bothered to shower before he came to work...

    First, as a curmudgeonly old fart, I think all carbon frames are deathtraps and accidents waiting to happen. Take a tumble? Better get it X-rayed, because the next step could be catastrophic...

    Uhh... why would I be joking? You can't try stuff on you buy at Costco, that's why they have the nice return policy, especially for clothes.

    They're 700x32, but I'm happy with my Vittoria Randonneur Pros, even though I did get my first flat with them last night. They ride nice and have been amazingly resilient even as my daily commute...

    That's clearly a used bike. Look at how worn the tires are. And the rims have the wear strip showing. This bike has seen several hundred miles of road. And while I don't want to turn this into...

    First month commuting numbers are in

    I commuted 320km, and I was limited to daytime hours for the first half because my lights hadn't come in yet. And I've lost nearly 20lbs.
