    It's up to the club leadership to set forth examples and express their expectations and concerns. I've been riding with a club in Chicago the last 3-4 outings, and the ride leader (a very cool dude)...

    That's how it is in Chicago, too. People are nuts and don't understand depreciation.

    You've done a very good job with this one.

    I wish mine had as good of paint as yours does!

    Yep - check your fit. Putting too much weight on your hands indicates something may need to be tweaked. In my past experience, hurting hands were because I was putting too much weight on them; my...

    Did the Univega have 32mm tires? When I switch between my Voyageur and my Domane, there is a huge difference in handling and 'nervousness'. My Voyageur has 32mm tires while my Domane has 25mm; I have...

    My experience is the exact opposite of yours. My '73 World Voyageur touring bike weighs 28 lbs stock, 34 lbs with aluminum fenders and rack. While I think it's very dependable, it climbs like a sack...

    What's your method for using the app? The trick is to turn everything (data, cellular, location based services) off, except for GPS. I was out on the road today for about 6.5 hours and only used...

    I posted this on our local cycling board, but hey, it was an experience worth repeating to others.

    I pretty much did everything wrong today -

    This footage is awesome and is so great and exciting for the sport. I really liked the final kilometers of stage 8; I had no idea tight quarters were and that bumping and pushing happened.

    Count me in as another Domane convert. I test rode a bunch of bikes, but felt best on the domane. I, too, was very surprised at the comfort offered and couldn't believe I was rolling on thinner...

    I did this at the end of last year in to this year. I got in to a funk where cycling just wasn't fun and I didn't want to get on the bike. The break was good and I've got my mojo back now. I've been...

    Which Berthoud saddle did you pick? I got myself a Mente last year and it's just now starting to soften up - even after daily commuting and numerous brevets and centuries. I can't say that it was...

    Good idea. I DNF'd in my first attempt at randonneuring - a 200K permanent. Luckily, I was able to muster some intestinal fortitude and complete my first 200K brevet about 4 weeks later. Sometimes,...

    Among other things, ha! Some cycling buddies and I have a running joke that adding red to your bike makes you faster. I'm sure the tape will come off by summer, and matching brown (or orange) tape...

    Very interesting. This goes to show any bike can be a brevet bike. Is that suspension fork somewhat firm? I couldn't imagine riding my mountain bike w/ suspension fork very long.

    Very nice, turky.

    Well, I think I may start cobbling together parts to do a 7 speed STI build. Thank goodness Tourney stuff is cheap as chips!

    Sorry for the bump, guys.... but I have a question.

    Like many of you, I have put 126mm spaced 700c wheels on the world voyageur. I desperately want to put some STI shifters on the bike, and was...

    It's absolutely possible. I have been on two centuries where mountain bikes were being ridden. Heck, I rode 135 miles with a girl who was on a city bike​.

    After a couple of years on DT shifters, I'm pining for STI again. I'm all for nostalgia, but there's a reason technology has marched on. The small upside is that DT friction shifters require almost...

    I finally got my 'new style' Dia Compe 610s set up properly, and I'm fairly pleased with the results.

    The matching mini-rack, though beautiful, broke not too long ago. Velo Orange graciously took...

    Are there any CR-18s that are polished? I know mine are not. I agree that VOs would probably be higher quality, but they're also more than twice the price for a complete wheel-set.
