    If cyclocross is your goal, a road frame will not work. There just isn't enough clearance for knobby tires and any amount of mud.
    A mountain bike with skinny knobbies is a much better alternative.

    I don't have any experience with the Giant, but I have a CAADX 105 (with canti's) and it is rock solid. The bike is light, stiff and rides great. I'm almost done with my first cross season on it and...

    I would agree that spraying foam insulation into a wheel void is a recipe for disaster. I don't think it would suppress nose that well, and will more than likely cause the wheel to become unbalanced.

    I prefer to use MTB pedals on my road bike. Shimano XT is solid.

    I like being able to walk in my bike shoes, and always found road pedals/shoes to be somewhat impractical for riding in the city....

    I've been hanging both of my bikes vertically by their back wheels for years. I've not had any issues with the wheels being messed up from this.
    Someone once suggested not hanging bikes on their...

    So, if I want to watch via iPad (and occasionally do the Apple TV mirroring) all I need is the iPad app for $15?
    For some reason I thought the app was just features and info, but no streaming.

    Depends on what kind of riding you are talking about. I'm sure road wheels would be fine on wide crushed stone trails. I wouldn't think they would hold up to singletracking though.

  9. You might be right but, more to the point of this...

    You might be right but, more to the point of this thread, I have no regrets about switching to a 29" bike. It will likely become my only off-road bike.

    My 26" bike has LX/XT components and an 80mm...

    29" bikes aren't really any heavier than 26" bikes. If you are the kind of rider that would notice a hundred extra grams in a wheelset, you already know if a 29" bike is something you want or not.

    I rode a 26" hard tail for years, recently bought a 29" HT. I've had the bike for a few months and haven't touched my 26" bike since and will probably sell it.

    I think people make too big of a...

    I rode a 29er and loved it so much that I bought one. I have rode 26"HT MTB's for 15 years, but after spending 10 minutes on a 29er I could tell it was the right setup for me.

    I know I paid a...

    Extra weight isn't going to help them around corners, and that seems to be where the biggest difference is between riders.

    Put them all on a straight line decent, and they're all within a couple...

    Andy and Frank Schleck are both on the podium and Andy was in yellow today. Should Phil and Paul just pretend that this didn't happen and go on about how awesome Contador is instead?

    I get that...

    It seems to be working fine this morning.
    Hopefully this isn't how it's going to go for other big stages, as I'm sure it was a demand issue. Long stage (5+ hours of video) plus everyone probably...

    I am 165ish lbs, ride on 23cm tires. I run them between 105-110psi.

    This was based mostly on comfort vs. perceived speed. I've tried tires as hard as 120-125psi but the ride is crap. If the psi...

    You are not alone. Lots of riders have varying degrees of neck and back issues, some of which can be solved with a proper fitting. It can be worse for new riders.

    I bought a set of RS-10's in 2008 for $177 shipped to my door.
    I've put around 6000 miles on them and they are as true as the day I bought them with no servicing at all. They've never been trued and...

    The Trek 1000 is a solid entry level road bike.
