    So now we've come full circle to how dangerous aluminum bars are. :lol:

    By the way: if you sweat a lot, wear gloves and change your bartape often so you can clean all the salt off those bars.

    I think any thread that guy starts is immediately a parody of itself.

    They've gone to a much different model now. They don't sell rebuild kits that I'm aware of, but you can order just the shifter body assemblies. And it's still not cheap.

    The problem is that there are several conflicting pieces of information out there. All the way from the crank locking up and her walking the bike in to the bike never actually got ridden in the race....

    I hear ya, but it's a thing that happens day in and day out at shops everywhere. When I first started, I felt almost wrong for charging 10 dollars to change a tube. But after a while, I realized that...

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I have to ask the question here. What is with all the outrage when cheating is cheating? We still like to remember people like Pantini fondly when he was...

    We kept a few counterfeit bars in the back and would snip pieces off between two fingers, then we'd put them in a bowl with some milk and eat them for breakfast.

    They aren't "inflated" prices. They are the prices set in the U.S. by the distribution model. They are certainly more, but they are the prices a consumer must pay if they want to support local...

    Just to let everyone know, I absolutely hate myself. I find myself mentioning "back when I worked at the shop" like every other post. I'm such an a-hole.

    I think this is the bulk of the issue, but I'm not sure what Shimano can do about it, or if it even registers to them. I'm sure the OEM sales are what drive the bottom line for them, because it...

    That's the other thing that gets glossed over whenever this topic comes up. What we don't realize is that bike nerds who are comfortable doing full builds do not make up as large of a market share as...

    I'm actually with you on the "Well, it wouldn't be loaded like that on a bike" ridiculousness in the case of these bars. The bars are clearly crap and don't belong underneath anyone that would rather...

    Here's a good test. Take your steel bike, put on a cheap saddle and hammer the hell out of the saddle with a sledge hammer. Now do the same thing sideways on the seat stay and let me know whether or...

    The key points you're picking out are irrelevant to the U.S. vs. Europe situation. Those rules apply to U.S. dealers. Basically, the MAP might state you can only "advertise" at, say, 10% off. This...

    I'm totally done on the "check out my riding position" thread. Apparently I don't know enough about bikes because I don't do yoga.

    In other actually bike related news: I got curious and googled...

    It's tricky because the video is in slo-mo and they're actually going pretty quick. You should see it go by in the video a few seconds before the crash starts.

    Edit: pops in at 16 seconds.

    I've had maybe 4 or 5 different groupsets now, only one of them Campy. Oh how I miss that Campy. It will go on my next high-dollar steel build maybe 3 or 4 years from now. It was 10 speed Centaur on...

    I was trying to figure that out, too. It looked like he just went over a manhole cover, so maybe he was putting some power down and the rear wheel slipped on the cold steel. That's my best guess.

    I would hand over my Bontrager carbon bars for that guy to test with 100% confidence. Those things are crazy stiff compared to other bars I've handled. I think manufacturers realized that stupid...

    It's really a pretty light workout overall, but I did read about maintenance vs. strength training in terms of cycling. I'm not racing crits or looking to do any fast group rides, so I figured it...
