    Check the frame VERY carefully for any damage at all. A fork mismatch is quite unusual and strange. The Roubaix is a good bike but not if it has been crashed badly.

    My Spurcycle bell will easily fit but the downside- cannot get it immediately and they are not cheap. Unfortunately, I just cannot part with my extra one either. Best bell ever though...if you can...

    So what will be the official story from Specialized now? While I like Specialized bikes, I see them only trying to deflect and cover up. That is who they are. Next version- Contador was mugged and...

    Looks like a defective/badly made frame which simply cracked upon impact with something. Specialized will do all they can to cover this up. They don't need this publicity. Do they make custom...

    I have read many reviews about the Seven Axiom being a very comfortable Ti frame. That has me intrigued. I have also heard of many Ti frames that are very stiff and not compliants. I am sure they...

    Every shop here in the Denver area has a "Fit Expert" so it is hard to know which ones are legit. There are still others not affiliated with a shop. They are everywhere. I think I once ran into an...

    Drink lots of water and avoid beer and red meat if possible. I hardly drink so that was fine but I had to modify my diet. been two years since my first and hopefully last attack. So painful!

    I'd go with the Tallboy. I owned one and recently sold it for an Intense. The Tallboy has a great rear suspension and climbs very well but is comfortable for long rides.

    Been looking at this. Not sure if the forearm or the elbow one is more effective.

    I just had a set built with Pacenti SL23s. While they are not as impressive (quality-wise) as the HEDs, they are close enough. I'd use those or the HEDs. Good rims but I am currently not using them...

    Deepak, I think in a place like Bangalore you will need a much tougher tire...maybe Gatorskins? What are you using now? I am originally from Calcutta (roads much worse than Bangalore) and I don't...

    Not sure exactly how they "improved" upon the originals but I run the originals (GP 4000S) here in Colorado. PSI- 100/105 or 100/110. I have run 95/100 as well. After 600-700 miles, I have not...

    So far I have tried Pearl Izumi, Assos, Castelli, Louis Garneau, and Performance. The Performance stuff is not great. The Pearl Izumi stuff I have is a step up from Performance but I have not tried...

    Not sure how hot this deal is but certainly decent enough for me. I have two Lupine lights for the MTB rides but wanted a cordless one for the road bike. I also wanted one that was around 100 grams...

    Make sure it is 44cm c-c at the hoods. Some bars (I think even the Ergonova which I love the shape of) flare out at the drops so the c-c measurement at the hoods is less that 44cm. While I like...

    My first road bike was a basic Specialized Roubaix- 2002. It was on sale for around $1,000 and I still have it. Sadly, they are around $1,800 now- MSRP. It looks like you can't beat a $400 bike...

    I may have my solution. I called the local tint shop that does good work. Turns out he helps a lot of local cyclists with this same issue except many simply want more protection on the downtube. ...

    The S-Works (at least the newer ones) seems to be much more muted. I'd be fine with that. :)

    My Brooks was pretty comfy but the quality was pretty iffy. It started to tilt a bit or maybe always did. This is the design but the rails were short too. I am tempted to (hopefully I did not...

    I too have found that soft squishy saddles are the worst. I must say that a Brooks I had was extremely comfy. I may try the racier Berthoud this time.
