    I have had great results with the conti grand prix in 25mm. They are less expensive than the GP4000s but are a very nice tire for $35.

    I run the A070 shifters on my trek 660, and they work real nice with 7speed tri color. Shifting from the drops is difficult though.

    With your budget I would go with a new ten speed Tiagra group...

    $350 is a good buy if it fits. The CAAD3 with DA is 99% of a new bike. I see very little performance improvment going from my 1985 Ironman to my 2013 CAAD 10. Maybe a mile per hour more average over...

    Broken glass was the guilty party. Hood rats must get a lot of pleasure from breaking bottles on the bike path. I get less flats riding the poorly maintained roads.

    If its not up to the task, it will blow out, and I will have attained a bit of wisdom. All at the expense of a half worn YJ tubular. It's the story of my life's education.

    Like the title says. My first repair went great. I sat in my recliner and took my time. I have to say you get a real sense of satisfaction from the job. It kind of gives you a connection to the old...

    The CAAD3 is the cool choice, but BD offers a lot of value. That is a tough one. I suppose it comes down to what you want out of a bike. For example I love riding my CAAD10, but my vintage bikes get...

    The vintage Treks will get compliments, the Fuji not so much. At least that's how it is with my boring CAAD 10 vs my Trek 660, or Centurion Ironman.

    My Caad 10 is stiffer, but not any harsher than my two steel bikes. The harsh ride reputation came from some of the early aluminum bikes. Lots of good choices out there.

    Plan your ride to go by a loose sheep dog, about the time you loose the fire. You will pick it up a bit!

    I have slicks for my 29er and it is quite a nice ride on pavement. A hybrid seems like a waste unless you don't intend to run on dirt any more. The hybrid has a very slight advantage on the road,...

    If you use a shimano RD with 8speed ergos, it will shift a 6speed freewheel. I'm running that on my Ironman. For 7speed i would suggest new shimano tourney 7speed brifters. They don't look as good as...

    But a Caad 10 ultegra showed up in the garage last night. Right between the centurion Ironman and that sexy trek 660. It's been a long winter and things happen ya know.
