    I take it you have never ridden Rivendell's Albatross bar. The grips are almost parallel to the top tube. I don't see how anyone who is built along normal anatomical lines could find that thing...

    I checked the reference line and it was off a bit. I had assumed that when the LBS guy put in a new tube, he would have eliminated this variable. I deflated the tire, used my fingers stuff the bead...

    I would say wider tires are a good idea for a heavy person. I weigh 400 lbs and blowing a tire is not something I have ever worried about. However, riding a tire with a low enough pressue to...

    Any thoughts on the new Ixon Core? I looked at Harris Cyclery's website and didn't see the IQ Premium but they have the Core. Their prices are a bit better too.

    Since we are talking tires, I'll put in my 2 cents worth.

    I agree with Noglider that tires are the absolute most important thing you can use to change your bike. I've been riding the...

    I think I will go with a very easy ride and just let my body tell me how long and how far. The stiffness comes and goes and is probably related to long stretches of inactivity at my desk job. I...

    Ride or Rest

    As I've posted here before, I'm a super-clyde at approximately 400lbs. Since the weather has warmed up I've been easing back into riding and last night I went pretty hard (maybe too hard) on my 30+...
