    At that price, the Neuvations are a pretty amazing deal. I've been riding on an older set of R28 Aeros for a few years and am quite happy with them. I'm a bit lighter at 165 lbs, but they have stayed...

    I like mine (not a Camelback; a Fox-branded pack) for mountain biking primarily because it avoids getting mud and dirt on the mouthpiece of a frame-mounted water bottle.

    For road riding, it's just...

    I stand corrected - my apologies. Out of curiosity, what vintage is it? Their current stuff (and the last few years) seem to all be sloping top tubes.

    I think it looks like a nice bike, but $5k and only Athena components? Come on.



    I thought Kona only had sloping top tubes on their road bikes - even the steel ones - which is not the case...

    I think a lot of it comes down to marketing - it looks cool, might be ever-so-slightly more aerodynamic, and (particularly in the case of low spoke counts) might shave a few grams off the weight....

    Thanks for sharing, Nick. The cinematography was rather well-done I felt, but as Maddox points out, more clear characterization and narrative could make for a more impactful film. Art for the sake of...

    As another roadie turned MTB'er, I can vouch for how big of a role skill and technique play. It can be really discouraging, having fitness but feeling really slow. You've got to keep at it, though,...

    I should also add that riding around town and to work involves locking up, and having a bottle in my bag rather than in a cage is one less thing to get swiped off the bike.
