    That's just ridiculous because nobody uses 19mm tires at 200psi unless they are on a track. We're not talking about riding on rocks. :) People generally run between 70-120psi depending on what...

    I'd argue that a low profile tire would actually handle better. A high profile (by high profile I'm assuming a tall sidewall), low air pressure tire is much more likely to have tire roll (unless it...

    I think I would (strongly) disagree with this. First off, narrow high pressure tires does not equal poor high speed handling. I race on high pressure tires and can honestly say that I have never...

    I don't know about amazing. More likely a result of hanging out with the wrong crowd. When I first started riding there were two RAAM veterans and a number of other long distance racers in my...

    I would assert that term "classic randonneur" as used to define a bike is a manufacture of the Pacific NW, more specifically from BQ. When I started doing brevets back in the early 90's there was no...

    Yeah, I think the actual french definition is "to walk, ride, drive, to go trekking." It's definitely not a cycling specific term. I'm not a big fan of "Heineology." :) He's a great rider and...

    It's semantics I suppose. As far as I'm concerned, there is no such thing as a "traditional rando bike." Show up at an international randonee and it's pretty evident. I've always considered a...

    I would disagree with that. Rando bikes are not a tough bill, people make them a tough bill. You can build any bike into a rando bike and you don't need all the bells a whistles on it. Fenders,...

    I don't think I'd be happy with only 10,000 miles on a frame, I ride that many miles in one year. Like Zonatandem, I have bikes with more than 5 times that mileage on them.
