    She is exactly 4'-6". I may be investing too much thought into this, but as it's here first road bike I want to make sure she has a good experience. The stock bars have a long reach and deep drop...

    Bar width for a kid's road bike???

    Anyone have experience with this. I'm finishing out a road bike for a 9 year old girl, and I'm buying new bars. Using the old rule of thumb (measuring from the bony projection at outside of...

    Being such a small area, I'm trying to figure out how anyone would really inspect it? I'm guessing an inpsection might be more destructive than the tiny hole (remove the clearcoat to peel back...

    Thanks, I'll probably have it checked out. Here is a pic of a similar bar so you know what I'm taking about.

    pinhole in carbon fiber?

    Not sure what to make of this. Just inspecting the base bars on my tri bike and noticed a pihole on the front leading edge of the base bar. I would have never noticed it if it was not right in the...

    Replace for sure, but I have my bike with me on the road and can't replace until next week. Would like to fit a couple more rides in, but didnt know if I could damage the crankset. Other than...
  9. Bottom bracket trouble-megaexo-need advice

    For awhile I've been hearing a random click coming from what I assumed to be the area of my BB. Nothing regular, just thought I could hear something on occasion. Today it is making a grinding sound....

    There are lots of training plans out there for iron distance triathlons. Are you currently a pure cyclist? If so, I would recommend starting with some shorter distance triathlons and working into...

    I've always been a fan of spinning a comfortable cadence versus "mashing." My regular plan is to find out what my max sustained effort can be for a given course and maintain a steady tempo...

    Thanks ahedges. Alas, I talked to Gaerlan as well as some UK retailers, apparently forces beyond my control have caused the telescoping 34mm seatpost to go the way of the dinosaurs.
  13. Thanks. I did check out the swift, and it looks...

    Thanks. I did check out the swift, and it looks sharp and would fit. Actually, looks closer to simulating road geometry than many as well. Not the tight fold I'm looking for though. For the sake of...

    Thanks for the feedback. If a used bike friday came along, that might be the ticket. I too tried a Dahon. Could get the saddle up to around 37", like you said, ridable but not ideal. I suppose I...
  15. Looking for an option, not finding many - 35.5" inseam and a folder on a buget?

    I vowed to try to do my fair research before I asked the question. Bike Friday has bikes that would fit me, but way out of the budget. I've thought about Citizen, buying low and the doing lots of...

    My wife races a P1 (actually a P2SL, same frame) and it's a great bike. I haven't shopped them in awhile, but that sounds decent for a new Cervelo. If you shop used, you might actually pay a little...

    Thanks Aaron, that doesn't surprise me. Most I've seen or tried (tested Dahon and Melon) max out at 37", leaving me 2 inches too low. However, if the stock seat post is only 300mm, or even 350,...
  18. Anyone own/have access to a Giant Expressway?

    I've decided I don't know enough about folding bikes to make a firm choice yet, but I'm exploring options as I discover them. Latest find is the Giant Expressway. I'm trying to determine 2 things...

    When you say spung, do you mean a saddle with suspension? This will be a supplemental training bike, so I'm planning to put a spare racing saddle on it right now. I may not have the right idea of...

    You are right, 34mm is what Dahon uses. I've found this online, but not in the US or currently in production? Anyone have any insights?

  21. New to the folding world, need a seatpost.

    Hi all. I'm new to the folding bike world. Can anyone tell me where to find a telescoping seatpost (34mm)? I'm looking at a new Melon Slice, it rides great, but the seatpost is about 2 inches too...

    elementary spd question

    I have a really basic question. I've been riding (road, not mountain) for a good while now, but never had a desire to use spd before. I like the new spin bikes at our gym so I'm going to put some...

    Hmmm, looks like you have two different things going on. One goal is to add mileage + speed, the other is to change your form. (Okay, maybe that is 3, I never claimed to be good at math though). I...
