    Their "MSRP" numbers are essentially made up but some of their bikes can be a very good value. I personally would not buy from them but if the budget is an overriding concern, they are definitely...

    This is unusual but I guess there have been a few collisions. I only recently started using a bell. It is a small bell but pretty loud. I can now alert people from a much longer distance away. ...

    I don't see a single road bike equipped with triples at bike shops. I have one (it is on the Trainer) but it is a 2002 Roubaix. Since then, they have basically disappeared. The demand among...

    Nope. I have a couple of friends who do (and the other two use Zeros) and it seems that while they have no issues, the Look guys fumble around trying to get the pedal at the right angle when taking...

    I'm not sure yet since I have only been riding my Fat Bike and the Cyclocross bike (bad weather bike). I still need to switch out the spindles. I was going to take out one of the road bikes but an...

    I'd go with Zeros. I just picked up two sets, after much thought and research. The two side entry is what I prefer. I'm going to get the coffee shop covers first but eventually the walkable...

    I do use Frogs on the mountain bike but just picked up a couple of Zeros for the road bikes. I was using Frogs and then Shimano MTB SPDs on the road bike. Since my fit guy had put pedal extenders,...

    Sorry, it is the V-270. Not sure why I was thinking about the Twin Turbo 3000GT VR4. I just saw a new one on eBay for $199. They also have a fancier model...M20V. I have had this V-270 for ~ 3...

    The wired system works quite well. Wireless is a step ahead, as long as recharges are not needed frequently. Not that I will be getting eTap soon (I just bought my hydro disc DA di2 for the new...

    I got rid of mine for the same reason...no linear resistance to simulate climbs. The Minoura VR4 is better in that respect, and quieter.

    dalava- I'll never disagree there. Canadians are generally extremely nice people. In the corporate world and in my limited experience, they stand in start contrast to their counterparts in the US.

    I actually lucked out big time in late 2014. My company got bought out and the buyer company offered me a job but in Atlanta, Georgia. I went there and knew instantly I could not live in that area....

    Utah is lovely and the the Pac NW is too. I have only ridden in Moab but I need to see more of Utah. I have a friend in Farmington and one who just moved to Park City so I have places to stay for a...
