    I'm in the ACT, it still weirds me out that it's a territory, not a state, but we don't have a covered velodrome here either. The...

    Honestly, I dunno. My expectation is that they work really well for road bikes, where the cadences are lower and accelerations are more predictable, but I have this nagging feeling (and part of the...

    I'm an enduro who just likes lifting, and have been doing the introduction to lifting programme from the upupupup! site, without going insane on the weight. I'm a former rower, and have trained with...

    Spindle size is different so all may not fir on your bike. Shimano has a 68mm dia spindle, Cannondale is BB30, Rotor I think makes both. Cannondale won't fit in any frame that is set up for threaded...

    FWIW I've had good use out of a couple of Surly sprockets, but managed to purchase some proper 1/8 ones from Easton, more to put my mind at ease than anything else.

    You might want to level the saddle and lower your seat height to resolve the issues you're talking about. You'll throw all the weight forward onto your hands and end up with sore shoulders and wrists...

    Hi Bakeram4,

    It sounds like you're genuinely after advice, and if that's the case I'd steer well clear of BF. It sounds like you've got a friend who's helping you out, I'd place more stock in...

    Check that the saddle is level, then check that it's straight. If it's both those things, try lowering the saddle height 2-3 mm. Also, don't forget to wear cycling shorts with a chamois.
