    Hey all,
    I just signed up for this ride and wondered if anyone here had done it in the past? This is the MS Society ride in September, not the Greylock Century that's coming up this Saturday. I...

    First commute with clipless was uneventful. The ride home was a little more interesting. At the time, I worked on a major university campus. Leaving work, my path was suddenly crossed by a group of...

    I have a 17 mile commute. If I take the bike path that is 11 miles of it, I have no problem doing it on my single speed. But if, like now, the path is impassible, I'm on a bike with gears. ...

    $20 sounds about right. I went through a really bad patch a couple of years ago where I was breaking spokes on all my bikes every time I rode. I learned how to replace my own spokes then, as well...

    I have the Fantom CX in blue. I'm 6'3" and bought the 61cm. It's got 3 years of commuting/utility riding on it and I love it. Swapped out the stock tires for some Gatorskins, fenders and a rear...

    Continental makes the Gatorskin in a 25. It's what I use on my commuter, never had a flat in a year and a half of commuting in New Haven, CT. And they're still on my bike, on my second set because...
