    All good questions, along with do you only use this bike for commuting, do you also like to go out for more sporty rides on the weekend and want something a little lighter or is the only thing you...

    I always relate bike security to the theory of "You don't have to be able to out run the bear, just your friend". If you make your bike more difficult to steal than the one next to it, chances are...

    If you have it and are not going anywhere too remote I say you should be fine to use it until it gives you problems, just check it occasionally but you should be doing that with any quality of rim. ...

    Definitely start here, you would be surprised at how often this happens. Simply open the quick release with the bike on its wheels and pushing down on either the saddle or the stem and then tighten...

    I have the Clement XPlor MSO's in 700x40 and really love them, they roll great and still grip good enough for some easier singletrack. Continental tends to run smaller than advertised, my Clements...

    Di2 stuff feels amazing and if you are a fan of aero bars it lets you put "shifters" any where on the bike so you can shift from multiple places which is really nice. It has been pretty reliable...

    Ground Up Designs cross frame with White Industries/Velocity A23 wheels. I am really excited I was able to fit these 700x40 Clement XPlor MSO tires even though this snow was too much for them today....

    I was actually considering doing similar on the inside of the chain stays where it is not very obvious. I was going to track how many centuries I have ridden on my newish frame.

    I have a co worker who regularly rides with an SLR camera and he modified a small camera case (small meaning just fits the camera/lens) that he has strapped to the shoulder straps of his back pack. ...

    I would have had to of fixed it as well, never a bad idea to always buy more zip ties than you need. They come in handy all the time and it is not uncommon to have a few that are a little too...

    I would do it but I would drop the Surly tubes. Any "normal" 26x2.5-26x2.75 tube works well and drops a lot of weight over the Surly toobs. Most people use the QBP branded Q Tube, the superlight...

    The kool stops are great but the pads you have should be fine if you get the paint off your rims. If you have access to power tools I have had really good luck using a die grinder with the 90deg...

    I would actually argue the other direction, to me it seems Velocity's quality has been improving steadily from with they were made in Australia. If it were me, I would find someone with a spoke...

    Another vote here for the A23, it is my favorite general purpose road rim out there right now. Light enough to be used on a bike meant to go fast and strong enough for daily use. I weigh 200lbs and...

    Since all three companies put out a similar quality bike, I would simply go with which one fits the best and the one that comes from the shop you like working with the most.

    X2

    You should be fine. If you want to feel even better about it you can contact the manufacturer and get their opinion, if they give you the go, that also will help if you ever have a warranty claim. ...

    Double eyelets are not necessary or even better, there is a reason so few rim manufacturers are using them. I have seen a number of Open Pro's (double eyelets) with spokes pulling through and these...
