    Agreed. I actually carry a concealed handgun everywhere and because of that, I avoid confrontation like the plague. It's made me a lot calmer, but in a situation where someone is actually trying to...

    I agree with Looigi. If you're wanting to use it strictly for exercise, then you want to pick the bike that's going to make you work the most. To maintain the same speed, you'll work more on the...

    Carbon is a fine material. I've owned several but I've never really liked them enough to keep them. I tend to like more versatile bikes like one other posted stated. I didn't want to have to go to...

    While exercise is nice, it's mostly because it's a fun activity. I only ride with my wife and we use it as a change to get out and enjoy being outdoors and enjoy each others company.

    This is what surprised me as well. I totally expected to be bored with the ride, but they aren't any slower than my "race" tires. But a major increase in comfort. I routinely take them down gravel...

    Excellent tires. I run the 32 mm version and these are the best tires I've ever had. Not cheap though.

    This is what I'd do. I've had many, many cross bikes and they are just fine, but I've really enjoyed riding my Soma ES. Soma now sells complete bikes as well but I built mine up from the frame...

    I've got this issue as well, but it doesn't show up riding, just backpacking. How I treated it was foam roller, stretching (affected leg; ankle over unaffected legs knee, then squat down) and Advil.

    I think I would get rid of the cyclocross bike. They don't tour well, but you can easily do the things you were doing on cyclocross bike with the touring bike. I wouldn't mind having one of those...

    Both of my bikes are steel. I went with it on the "fast" roadie because I wanted something unique. Nearly everyone that I ride with has carbon, I wanted something a little different. The other...

    That Breezer also comes with a dynamo and light. If I still commuted or was car free, I might have to get one myself.

    My wife got me into cycling. I've been doing it now for 8 years. Maybe ask her if she'd like to give it a try. Pick her up a nice used bike off craigslist for a couple hundred and see if she likes...

    EBay is setup more for the buyer than the seller so hold your ground, you'll get what you want. I got a guys account closed once because he tried to screw me over.

    Any bike like this is going to be heavy. How about something like this Breezer. Somewhat similar style and is ready to go. Lights, rack and fenders. Breezer is a good name also.

    I like them smooth. The only Aluminum frame bike I've had like that was a 2006 Specialized Tricross Comp. It almost looked like a carbon fiber frame because the welds make the tubes look like they...

    Nice post. I agree, people should learn how to take care of themselves and if they aren't comfortable handling the occasional issue that comes up, I hear AAA now does bicycle recovery.

    Go ask that question on the commuting forum. You'll get a lot of people say they have had to replace rims due to brake wear. Same thing with the Touring and long distance forums. Why? Because...

    Apparently you've never ridden during the rainy season... I've wore out several wheels on my commuter bike due to brake pad wearing the braking surface. You usually don't see it on fair weather...

    Yeah, changing out the big ring will be a piece of cake.

    As long as the cranks are external bottom bracket, it's very simple to change out the cranks. Most of the time, you only need one simple tool and it maybe takes 5 minutes to switch cranks. You...

    You could. Personally, I like the cross cranks. I don't care about going 50 mph so a 48/36 or 38 crank is more than enough for me. I think for cross racing though, a 50/34 might be a little too...

    I think you'll see that changing. They really make sense. While I've never had this happen to me, I've read many stories of people on long decents where braking ended up causing a blowout. Not...
