    The other day I arrived back at home after a ride, and opened my garage door with my remote as I rolled up to it. When it was about half way up, still even with my body, I accidentally clicked the...

    You're overthinking this. Pick a ring, probably your smaller one. Then ride your bike. If the going it too hard, move the large lever until you're comfortable. If you're spinning too fast, use the...

    It's not much different from the Tourist. Replaced the STIs with bar ends and a fork with no eyelets. Same threaded headset, same chainstay length. Looks like they've added an XT RD. I'd buy the...

    Sometimes Europeans make fun of US for whining when gas gets above $3.50/gallon when they're paying $7+. However, in most places in the US, a car is practically the only option for getting around. I...
