    I agree it's just a balance issue. More weight is now further forward especially when standing. It may just take a little while to adjust to the new position. It's not a radical position change by...

    I would have been fine with that service. You got a new frame and didn't miss much riding time on the old repaired frame. What more could you have expected?

    I've only had two warranty claims in...

    Different people prefer different cadences. The general rule is 80-100 rpm for optimum efficiency. Beginners tend to be on the lower end and even into the 70's. I've always been a spinner. I ride...

    Sounds like great service to me. If they have all of the assorted parts (and I bet they do) ready and you're next on the que that sounds feasible. I'm sure they have quite a few wheel builders on...

    The Eno is a great hub. I think it's only available in 28, 32 and 36 hole though so reusing your 24 hole will be out. Also fitting a rear brake can be a challenge with the eccentric axle. You will...

    That's the same place I ordered mine from. Must have missed that font. So many to choose from. Did you choose the cheap option and have to do the cutting and peeling yourself. That was fun. Not.

    Chaadster- Forgot to add that it looks great. What company did you get your vinyl from and what was the font? It looks similar to the Cannondale font which I was trying to find for the Carbonello...

    The "Mediocrity In Motion" was one of my favorite parts of the original "Carbonello" Litespeed ad. I couldn't leave that off my version II CarbonÚllo.

    Here is my finished CarbonÚllo. I just finished building up my Farsports 58mm x 28mm rims. I went with an Eno Eccentric 28h in the rear and a BHS SL85 24h in the front. Continental GP4000sII in...

    I dropped off an older aluminum rim many years ago to be relaced to a new hub and the first thing they told me was that there was no guarantee that it could be built up successfully. I took that to...

    I was hoping that was a typo. Even a 46/12 is around 100". Who really rides around in that big a gear?

    I just compared the Black CAAD12 (Highest Alum) vs Evo Hi-mod DA2 (Lowest Hi-mod). The CAAD12 is around $500 more. The only difference that I noticed was the wheel set on the CAAD which retails for...

    I much prefer talking about gear inches rather than ratios. 75 gear inches on a 700 wheel is the same as 75 gear inches on a 20". Easier to compare from a common point of reference.

    Are you getting new wheels or just new tires on your current rims? 30mm is the depth of the rim (spoke hole to edge of the rim where the tire starts). If you have 700x23 tires on there now you...

    I'd have to say it was a Specialized RockCombo (think early gravel bike). I bought it used after it had been converted to straight bars. It was my messenger bike for several years and it held up...

    I would have no problem cutting the seat post if it was bottoming out but I can see why someone might on a new bike. Seat posts are easily replaceable (even the 25.4) so it won't effect resale at...

    I was about to say that if the OP was offended by the paint comments then he needs a thicker skin (but not as thick as his paint). Then I noticed the date of the op. Safe to say that that bike is...

    The reviews on Amazon are pretty funny. Some claim it weighs less than 16 lbs and one says it weighs no more than 3 or 4 lbs. It's also capable of speeds up to 40 mph. The only negatives I saw were...

    I decided it was time to retire my Carbonello. It was originally a 3.0 Criterium Cannondale transformed to a fixed gear. It was getting a little shabby and I couldn't repaint again without losing...
