    Based on my personal experience, I think the question you should be asking is what type of bike should you get, so that you can ride with her at her pace?

    Yeah, keep riding the Velomax.

    I've destroyed two 24-spoke, 27mm deep rims in a manner similar to yours in the past four years. In both instances, failure occurred on the drive-side. I've since...

    Oh, and speaking of the b-word, what about barcons?

    How does one make the leap from bar-end shifters to "barcons"?

    This is actually what I do when riding with the wife, as her pace is either slow or erratic. At least I can modulate my speed without tapping the brakes all the time.

    I placed an order with PBK on 4/01, and it just arrived today (4/17). It does seem like it took a few days longer than usual.

    I probably have about 11,000mi +/- on my Jagwire cables/housing, running 2007 SRAM Force. I have no idea how long they'll last. I guess I'll replace them when they quit shifting smoothly.
