    I like these from Chrome because they help me look like I'm in my mid-20's again. ;)

    I started looking at bikes when I was at 265 lbs, and purchased a Specialized Sirrus Limited at 240. When I reached 215, I was tired of getting beat up by the 23mm tires on...

    Exactly right, pierce! That's both the benefit and the drawback of the Sirrus Limited. It's a great bike from a materials and componentry standpoint, but it suffers from an identity crisis: it...

    Of course, the Specialized will be faster because it's red & black. Other than that, they look like peers.

    The Crux does not have eyelets. But the Specialized TriCross might be an alternative. It has eyelets, a little more relaxed geometry, and is also a little less expensive.

    +1 on krobinson103 - I found my stock Tektro brakes were less than stellar, and switched the entire system out to Shimano CX70's. Amazing difference in stopping power, but I am convinced it was the...

    I'm really enjoying the cycling jeans from Swrve. They are cut in various trims, and have just a bit of stretch to them. Extra pockets, reflective trim, and very high quality make these my go-to...

    Very nicely done! I considered doing the same for my Sirrus Limited, but ended up falling in love with a Crux Elite. But the point is, and I think you make it well, relaxed geometry and drop bars...
