    Ok well Portland is jam packed with bicycle heads so you should be able to bargain hunt around for what you need. I suppose on the other hand nice vintage frames get snapped up by all the hipsters.

    I don't think of Clyde as a nice PC term for "fat". I think of it as hey, you're just a big boned and large kinda guy. Probably never be an elite level cyclist, but hey those ideal bodied elite...

    how handy are you? where do you live? You might be able to find a nice older road frame for cheap and move stuff over and then build up a 'cross bike. I race cross too, but before I started racing...

    Well I always root for Uruguay, have a friend there and it's a nation of only 3 million who go up against the biggest and most powerful in the sport. Maybe Suarez can just be assigned some new kit...

    Well said. Edenwolf you asked, and indeed many of us do think that wearing a baseball cap backwards is kinda ******y. Wearing a baseball cap backwards on a bicycle? Still ******y. So you took...

    Just forget about it and ride it. Did you buy a wall hanger or a bicycle? If you bought a bicycle, go out there and add some more dings and nicks, so these will blend in. It's probably a nice...

    I had a Fizik crack on me once, not the rails, but the plastic plate being supported by them. Horizontally across the middle, at first I couldn't figure out why the saddle was so much softer...

    Maybe so but that would still make you kind of a jerk. I'm all for stores backing what they sell and repairing or replacing defective products, but if you buy something with a lifespan, like...

    Actually you can't do that anymore, REI finally had to change their return policy. And, you'd be kind of a jerk for using a product for 5 years with no problems and then returning it for credit /...

    Well this is an interesting conundrum. I'm not running anything because I haven't build the tubeless wheelset yet. My understanding is that tubeless tires are harder to seat than clinchers...

    Well cyclists are allowed the use the whole lane if they want, they are vehicles on the road after all. Is the road you're talking about one or two lane? Are they pulling a critical mass? Seems...

    Thanks el C but I'm going to use a true tubeless rim and tire combo to get that tire bead seal, not a conversion. Perhaps these rims weren't as available when you built your wheels. One of the main...

    Well if they turn their noses up at old beater bikes (not cool, but) you won't have that problem since you're buying a brand new Tarmac from them. They're making good money off the sale and you're a...

    Is it necessary to run the goop? I.e. aside from sealing punctures does it prevent air from slowly percolating out of the tire? I'm talking about a true tubeless road set-up with a tubeless rim and...

    Thanks again for the tips. What's your preferred anti-seize? Do you use brass nipples?

    Thanks for the review. No problems mounting the Fusions I take it? I see they have a 25mm tire now, I'd be interested in that. I don't get that many flats in Western WA, tubeless would be more for...

    Yeah I wanted to run Campy - they are high quality hubs with cup-and-cone bearings which I prefer to cartridge. Besides with a Campy freehub and 130mm OLD how much better can anybody else make the...

    Well I already have the hub (Campy 9spd) and can't be changing that. Don't think there are other much better options available anyways.

    Thanks for all the analysis Drew Eckhardt. So I assume a Pacenti or HED with a ~28mm depth is stiffer. I guess whatever spoke is thick enough for the 24H front should be enough for the offset 32H...

    Interesting. I wouldn't assume that I was completely flat proof and I would still carry air and a spare inner tube. My understanding is that they are immune to pinch flats and able to seal up...
