    Only time I'll wear them again without washing is if I'm outta clean ones and I find a pair that passes the smell test. Usually, though, every ride.

    When I commuted by MTB, I wrapped the bar ends in bar tape like jyl . Definitely preferable to bare metal, but I don't see any particular advantage over a good set of regular MTB grips.

    This. My lady's similarly equipped Diamonback Outlook had a 7 speed freewheel on the rear, though I think it's a year or two older. You shouldn't need a chain whip to remove a freewheel.

    I suppose that we had better stop using carbon composites in aircraft, too, given that they're made by a similar process using epoxy impregnated weaves. Forget the mechanical properties, epoxy is a...

    Machka Your commute pictures put all others I've seen to shame. Looks like a great place to live and work!

    Are you sure it's the pedals? There are plenty of other things that'll make noise in that general region when you put the power down.

    That said, I rode a pair of no-name $20 all steel platform...

    I'm no fit expert by any stretch of the imagination, but it sounds to me like core strength might be part of the equation. It looks like you're trying to get relatively low judging by the saddle to...

    Built up my first wheelset using 700c/29" RhynoLites with 2.0mm straight gauge spokes for my commuter a while back. I'm no expert on wheelbuilding, mind you, so I can only offer evidence based on...

    My, that's purdy! May I ask what that stem is? I'm envious of the quill length, all of mine are too short so I ended up having to set up my C'dale pretty similarly to my road bike in terms of saddle...

    I hear ya on that one. The humidity yesterday combined with a 16 mph headwind on Milwaukee River Parkway almost ate me alive yesterday. I showed up at work completely drenched without a spare shirt....

    Depends for me. Like others, I play the "don't sweat" game in the mornings so I don't make the lab smell like an armpit all day. On days when it's particularly hot or humid, I'll dial it back...

    Sheesh, what a joke. New Berlin guy is my current favorite just because he honestly seems to think someone is going to pay him $275 for a GMC Denali.

    At least some people seem to be catching on....

    Thanks for the replies, guys. dtrain, I've often heard that if you're going to upgrade shifters to go 2 steps up, so I assume you mean that the 5600 action isn't a whole lot better than the 4600. I'm...

    My C'dale has an Accushift drivetrain and it works great. Has a very loud, crisp click to the shifters (Ole shifters, to be exact), though the shift action at the freewheel/RD isn't the most refined...
  25. Anyone ever mix 4600 and 5600 shifters?

    Like the title says, I'm looking for input regarding mixing Tiagra ST-4600 and 105 ST-5600 shifters. I happened across a 105 right shifter for sale locally at a really good price, so I snapped it up....
