    I too am a fan of bibs - even when I was at my thinnest (about 10 lbs less than I am now) regular shorts tended to roll at the waist. No problems with the bibs. They're stretchy enough to "pump...

    That may be a correlative indicator, but I don't think there's anything causal about the relationship. It think it's more a matter of people who adhere to these principles which suggests a high...

    Well then don't start - you might never wear anything else!

    I too originally shied away from spandex, but for me it's so incredibly comfortable that when I ride with something less form-fitting...

    Personally, I like clipless pedals, and the one I like on all my bikes is the Shimano PDM324. Not only do they support the SPD multi-release cleats, they can be flipped over to go platform when...

    Hey, what's with this trash-talk?? (I thought I was being eloquent!!) :roflmao2:

    I hear ya - I've gone from SPD to SPD-SL and back to SPD (with dual-purpose clipless/platform pedals) for exactly the reasons you mention. I really liked the SPD-SL setup, but they're good ONLY when...

    Climbing and acceleration (like when I find myself in too high a gear and have an opportunity to scoot across that 5-lane city thoroughfare) come to my mind.

    I've never felt that, but I started using clipless when I rode a SWB recumbent (in which case they're almost mandatory - don't know how you'd ride one of those without being clipped in!), so I...

    Amen.

    It is a personal preference. Do what you're comfortable with, and let others do the same.

    And there are those who take advantage of a free and open forum to repeatedly insist that everyone else conform to their personal tastes, and mocking others when they exercise their freedom of choice...

    One other piece of advice - one that I often don't follow as often as I should, and at least once I regretted it. Coming up to a stop, do NOT just unclip one foot. It's so easy as you come to that...

    Heh, heh...

    I just rode my age (64) on Saturday!!

    Not that was the point, just a coincidence...

    Man, I'm glad I didn't hook up with you guys!

    My sister and I did the metric at an average of 12.9 - we'd have been wheezing hard to keep up with Marc and FreedomRider!! :)

    Actually, BP - I think we've had beautiful weather almost every weekend this year. That's worked out well for me as I've definitely been a "weekend warrior" this year, very seldom getting out on...

    Expensive, but might not be a bad way to go (heck, just the ferrule/crimp kit was $20!). While everything else in the group set is fine, the cable housings and related hardware look like something...

    Cable housing questions

    I spent about 10 minutes searching for this, and figured I'd probably have gotten an answer in half that time if I'd just asked...:rolleyes:

    Doing my first build, and wanted to purchase some...

    The frameset manufacturer indicates that fenders CAN be fitted over 28mm tires, and MIGHT fit over 32mm tires (apparently depending on the specific tire).

    For aesthetics, polished aluminum looks great depending on the bike color and other features. On the bike I'm building, the black will look MUCH better.

    Unfortunately, the Rhyno-Lites are much larger (5mm wider -27.5mm vs 22.5mm for the CR18) rims, and I wasn't planning on sporting anything wider than 28mm (maybe 32mm) as I need room to mount...
