    I ordered three Spurcycle bells and received them via USPS last week- one for my rodbike, one for my wife's, and one for my mountain bike. It is quite the impressive little bell. Great sound,...

    Get a bike fit, and rack up easy base miles to slowly build up your muscles. That is what I am doing. It is helping, and while I am getting stronger, I still try to take it easy and not push too...

    I have read that in a couple of reviews now. I like a short reach, a flatter top, and an ergo grip, so maybe will look at Zipp's offerings. The SL-70 looks good but that is the Alu version. They...

    I took a couple of years off and was too tired to post about the experience when I re-started a few months ago. Just getting back into better fitness and need to spend a month at sea-level eating...

    What is the reach and drop? More concerned about reach...prefer shorter. I have always liked these bars and am looking for a new one.

    What saddle are you using? I have been using a Specialized Alias mainly. It is good for about 2-2.5 hours, but while I like the shape, I'd like to get something with more and more dense padding for...

    So glad to help...finally. I have learned a lot from this forum, and it was partly responsible for getting me back into riding.

    I am a Chris King fan on MTBs due to the high engagement...it helps me on technical climbs and techy flats. They are incredibly durable too. I used Dura Ace hubs on the road build. My next...

    I actually removed both the cups, layered the paste in there, and pushed them back in. I made sure the entire surface had a thin layer on it...not gobs of it. I then put the paste on the other...

    I am 180 lbs, and sit a lot. I purposely set my butt back down pretty hard a few times. It did not budge. However, instead of the recommended grease, I used carbon assembly paste on the inside...

    Been riding the SL4 with the stock carbon seatpost. I just switched to the COBL GOBL'R today. It definitely mutes the harder hit a bit. The cool thing is it smoothens out the rest of the ride even...

    I actually am considering the other Kinlin rims too. I hadn't eaten, was still at the office waiting for a vendor, and tend to get a bit goofy when low on sugar. I have heard that Kinlins build up...

    I have a SL4 Expert Ultegra di2- black/red. While the frame is slightly big (58) I got it for the longer headtube (and toe overlap) over the 56. I use a shorter stem. It certainly is stiffer and...

    I ordered three- two black and one raw. My roadie, my MTB, and my GF's roadie. Expensive for bells, but I do stupid stuff from time to time.

    I'll be doing some snowboarding/skiing and snowshoeing. Not crazy about riding on road at night (though I have 20-40 miles of bike paths) so I'm thinking of doing more mountain biking at night. ...

    The accounts I was reading were some tubeless but mostly Contis, and many or most running tubes on Stan's 340s. The 400 looks better for my weight but since I use GP4000S tires, I may never use them...

    I use Stan's rims on my MTB, but I am usually at 25-29 PSI. I hear of Conti tires (especially Contis) blowing off the 340 at a higher-than average rate, per two wheelbuilders I spoke to. I Googled...

    Hearing really good things about the Pacentis. Anyone use those? My wheelset is a bit overbuilt (HED C2 with 32x32) so thinking of going 20x28 or 24x28. I think the C2s are around 465 grams per...

    Always thought a low-profile bell would be cool on the MTB (hikers) and now that I think about it, on the road bike too. This one isn't cheap but is small, made well, and I guess it fits on the...

    Too bad the Stan's rims have issues with Conti tires and are not especially durable. I was tossing around the idea of a lightweight wheelset for long rides and long climbs/descents. At 180 lbs,...

    You all have shamed me into re-joing a gym (Bally's). Felt good having so much dedicated equipment. Starting slow but focus will be on legs, abs, and back.

    I think my tire pressure may be a bit high too, exacerbating the situation. I use the other pump and it seems to be 5-6 psi too high, so I lowered it to a real 100. The impacts were less jarring. ...
