    I did the drop bar and 700c conversion and ditched the u-brake with a long reach Nashbar unit. Running 3x9 for now, it's geared for nearly anything. Very, very...

    I demoed the Ultegra model over the holiday and really enjoyed it. I am stuck somewhere between the X and XL though and am getting a fit on the Guru with both specs to see what works best for me. ...

    The gap at lever should not prevent the calipers from opening back up but get rid of the play as it could be dangerous by delaying brake response. While you are at it, make sure the cable slides...

    I don't profess to know a whole lot about pressures and sizes and rim width combinations but the recommended max pressure is much like the Speed Limit, it's the max, not necessary what is prudent for...

    I have run 100-120psi in these at first but the ride quality sucked and the rear tire lasted less than 700 miles. Now, I only put in 70psi with the pump before rides. They still feel quite firm at...

    Wheels are DT Swiss. All of our flats have come from hitting rocks and a pothole at speed. I am not too concerned as they were all my fault. I switched the rear to a 28mm and may go wider to give my...

    I have, yes. When I first started to ride seriously, my rear wheel was out of true and I spread out the rear caliper to accommodate and then the spring broke so I had no rear brakes. That was all...
