    I understand these are generic house brand bars that Performance carries. With that said, I'm impressed by the stated weight and price. I do not ride off-road, these would be for my 7.4FX that...

    Update: It appears I will not be needing a new seatpost. I flipped my stock stem the other day and the new position has me on my saddle in a much more comfortable position than before.

    ^^ what giantcfr1 said ^^

    In this case flipping the stem (very easy and you only need a hex key) moved me a little lower (up front) and just slightly more forward. This shifted my balance on the...

    I just flipped the stem today and I can't believe how much more comfortable the ride is. Next swap-out will be the red pedals for either a set of Shimano Saints or Crank Bros 5050 //2. ...

    Help me decide on a Seatpost

    I know this subject has probably been beaten to death already. I did a search and could not find anything recent or relevant.

    I'm looking for 27.2 x (min 300 length) setback seatpost for my Trek...

    I graduated from a Schwinn 3-speed to a Super Sport in about 69. That bike lived in my room and was the cleanest bike in the world. It would get completely wiped down and lubed after about every...

    I'd say break out the coin and start flipping and then start riding. They look to be very much the same from what I can see on their spec sheets.

    I agree with giantcfr1. Let her get what she wants. My wife doesn't really care what the specs or price of her bike is... she just wants it to "Look Cute". You can't win.

    Cassette wobbles ?

    I'm not sure if this is even something I should be concerned about but when I was cleaning and oiling my chain today I removed my rear wheel and the cassette seemed to have a little wobble. Nothing...

    OP,

    I know what you're getting at. I too enjoy a nice rainy day with the garage door open, my bike sitting there upside down and half apart. You can take your time knowing that is the only thing...

    Not sure what the problem is but if it's a new bike take it back to where you bought it, have them look at it and fix it if necessary. I don't think you need to escalate this to "my money back".

    For off the shelf good looks I think BMC holds the title. Just too expensive for me. I spent less and will use the extra money to trick out my Trek.

    Anyone doing a Thanksgiving ride?

    It's sort of been a tradition for me for a long time. Although in my younger years I may have taken off for 40 or 50 miles, I think it will probably only be my 12 round trip down to the beach and...

    Dust cap removal on Shimano hub

    It appears that some water got into my rear hub (probably from washing) and it required a breakdown and re-lube. This was the first time I've done it on this bike and I have 2 questions...

    I picked up a chain whip and cassette lockring remover tool. This is the first bike I've had with a cassette and not a freewheel so I needed to go and pickup a few things.

    Take a couple of old belts and use them to tighten the 2 bike together so they don't swing around too much. There are a million ways to keep them still.
