    I run 85 front 95 rear max for 23s. No pinch flats at those pressures.

    For 32s on a wider rim I'll run as low as 35-45. Did this a fair bit through the winter - comfy.

    I've heard first-hand from other riders that Crank Bros pedals are good for about 3000-5000 miles - it seems that people who...

    I agree with all the replies saying uphill or into the wind is where you make the best gains. Oh, and of course, traffic lights if you know their timing.

    Through the winter I was on either 25c Gatorskins, 26x~2.0 studded tires, or Ritchey Speedmax Pro CX 32mms (they measure wider than that on my rims). The CX tires I had at around 30-60psi and loved,...

    Even on CX tires on the road? I find that's where it's the most "grabby" since there's not much of a contact patch between the CX tread and the road.

    Yes. I do find they tend to be a bit more grabby and that may take some getting used to especially on a road bike. And of course they are loud in the rain, which can be a feature if you want to be...

    Thanks, yeah this fork is definitely not doing too well. I have a disc brake CX bike I use in light snow too and I haven't missed the shock there.

    Ah, forgot to mention I need a disc fork. I swapped to a BB7 upfront a few years back for the winter.

    I will talk to the LBS though, they're good people.

    Of those I'd pick the Norco first, and then the Trek second. The Trek's more likely to be stolen perhaps, and the Norco has a compact double instead of a triple, so it's less fiddly for the FD.

    Ok sounds good. I don't ride this bike much on anything other than commutes, or towing a trailer, etc. so it sounds like the fork will be safe enough for that.

    Thanks yeah, I have been planning to replace it with a rigid fork for some time but it's low priority as long as the fork holds up - which it now doesn't quite seem to be.

    MTB fork lifespan

    Hi,

    I have a 2005 GT Avalanche that I've used mostly as a beater bike/snow commuting, and I'm wondering if the stock fork needs replacement. It's a SR Suntour XC60.

    When I lock the front brake,...

    How many miles on the bike? I'd say $800 is a little steep for 2006 even if it is a scandium/carbon Bianchi, but it depends a bit on how much you like that frame. The 10-speed ultegra looks like the...

    Ten minutes if I need to be somewhere at a particular time. Even when I've felt like a flat has been tough to change it's still usually under 10 mins.
