    If the axle doesn't stop the noise, you might be due for a freehub overhaul or you might need new wheel bearings.

    I'd steer clear of the Pacenti or HED Belgium rims. My experience with both of them is that to make the rims as wide and light as they are, they're sacrificing material strength. I've seen a lot of...

    Unconventional is when someone puts a aero clip-ons onto their flat-bar commuter because they're fighting a Chicago headwind every day.

    Shops did you a disservice by not discussing your ride goals and desired style with you. You never should have been sold an FX series bike. Even a heavier rider can be fitted properly to a drop bar...

    I've got an older Edge 500 model and it's pretty nice. But if you're looking for increased functionality like turn-by-turn directions, the new Edge Touring is a cost effective solution if you don't...

    Not that it would be within the price range, but if you want a TT bike setup with access to shifting and braking simultaneously, quite a few of our shop's racers have di2 robot remotes on the horns...

    Look man. I get that money is tight everywhere, and not everyone can afford a 5-figure TT bike. Not everyone needs a full carbon TT machine with $4000 carbon tubies, either.

    I suppose my question regarding your fit should have started with, "What type of riding are you intending on?"

    Pros on the nose of the saddle are doing so only for TT stages. Look at regular riding position for distance, and you'll see that riders are perched across rear of the saddle.

    Reusing an old tube only makes it more prone to flats if you go to a significantly larger sized tire and the tube is stretched thinner inside the tire. Tubes don't see the same exposure to the...

    My everyday road rig is 25 pounds before water and saddlebag. A lot of that is wheels: Sun CR18 rims, SON28 dyno, 32mm Pasela TG tires. They're not light, but they also hold up to quite a beating...

    Most often it's a 2009 Spesh Singlecross done up as a rando bike. PB Cascadia fenders, 32mm Paselas on CR18 rims, dyno lights, and a nice heavy B-17 Imperial saddle.
