    There's no doubt that Greg was fit 25 years ago, but he's not exactly setting an example for how to stay fit.

    You can get a new touring bike on bikes direct for about $600 (Windsor Tourist). I don't have one, but the specs are alright and I've heard good reports about them.

    I'll take my chances. ;) What I've heard about the Google cars sounds very promising. Even if completely driverless cars don't become a reality, perhaps computer assisted cars will be. I'd be...

    I don't hate cars or drivers, but what I don't like is being treated like a second class citizen on the road. Roads are a public utility and while you can drive vehicles on them, they don't have...

    I'm 5'6" and have a 50cm crosscheck. It's not a bad fit, but I think a 52 would have been better. 46cm for the Pacer would be way too small for you, IMO.

    Yes, the Tiagra derailleur will work fine with that shifter and cassette combo.

    What really helps me is having a bottle of 1/2 water and 1/2 orange juice. It's very easy to digest and gives me quick, but long lasting energy. I like to drink it when I have about 40-50k left.

    I'd get the 7.5. You'll be less likely to want/need to upgrade it. I have a 7.7FX that I bought in 2008 and it gets lots of use. The mix of Ultegra/105 components are still going strong after...

    I used that url and it gave me "meando", which I guess could be pronounced me-ann-doe or mean-do. I kind of like mean-do. :)

    No bugs!

    I enjoy riding all year too, but I have to admit that summer is my favorite. Light clothes, no threat of ice, and long days. 2 months without needing a bike light is great. Plus, it...

    If more were better, everyone would ride Nuvinci hubs. If less were better, they'd all be on singlespeeds.

    The best, as mentioned, is having the right gears for your terrain and load. That's...

    ^^^ Plus you'll have to do it again when the cassette wears, so it's good to have the tools and know-how.

    Why don't you go there and judge FB for yourself? It's not really fair to formulate an opinion based solely on other people's opinions. If you end up liking them, then buy it. If not, take your...

    I was thinking the same thing. Falling from a bike resulting in several cuts and bruises and a broken shifter is not my idea of lucky. Sure it could have been worse, but it also could have never...

    When superglue hardens, it becomes brittle. The tire flexes as it rolls so it will crack into pieces and become further embedded into the casing. It may have been possible to fix your gash, but not...

    Bulk is overrated. Step outside of the U.S. and see what the other 95% of the world calls "normal". TBH, you should consider yourself very fortunate. You're healthy, fit, and (probably) nothing...

    I have a crosscheck that I built from the frame with full 105 components. I use it for my 40 mile round trip commute and it's excellent for that. I've also ridden it on gravel and dirt roads and it...
