    I would suggest going with the Grab-ons over the Sunlites. Grab-on uses a better quality foam which is more UV resistant.

    I have 7 bikes that can be used for commuting but the more important question is: Why is your normal ride "down" for repairs? Not one of my bikes is more than about 10 minutes (max) away from being...

    I've not found the Ergon nor the other lock-on grips to be all that soft. For a good, durable, soft grip, it's hard to beat Grab-on. Their "Leisure Sport" grips are the best choice.

    You may want to look at your own tripe before you criticize mine. Motorist don't "run down cyclist because they are entitled"...at least not in the vast majority of cases. There may be a psychopath...

    I don't agree. Bright headlights go a long way towards giving you credibility on the road. If nothing else a light that is approaching the intensity of a motor vehicle will make other drivers...

    Four problems with your post:

    1. You are around 10 years late on the introduction of threadless forks. Diacomp filed the patent for the Aheadset in 1990. Threadless was very common by 1995.

    You need to buy a 1 1/8" stem and use a shim. Problem Solvers has them. You should be able to order them through any bike shop.

    They do it because the bike is going to be ridden for a few races in a single season. Longevity isn't a concern.

    You need to go learn something about frame materials. Steel doesn't have a "a low tensile strength", at least not when compared to aluminum. You are confusing "fatigue limit" with tensile strength...

    While I agree that a quick rinse should be sufficient to remove any residual salt from salt water, I disagree with the previous statement. Here in Denver, you could make that statement because our...

    The metal matrix was, and is, a method of changing up the properties of the aluminum. Aluminum really wasn't all that fragile prior to the use of MMCs (there are still lots of very old Cannondales...

    There are any number of mountain bikes out there that could work. You should look for a women's specific bike, however. A Trek WSD mountain bike does the trick nicely. Other large bike makers have...

    I think you are looking at the wrong end of the market. Aluminum, as well as carbon fiber, was introduced to the top of the market first because of the expense, then it moved down market as the...

    I agree that aluminum is easier to machine but welding and post welding treatment make the material more difficult to work with. Custom builders work with steel because they don't have to do a post...

    I disagree. In the end it comes down to performance. There is some of the bean-counter stuff going on but take a look at any major manufacturer and see how many steel frames they offer. Carbon is...

    I have a used 36 hole XT rear hub that in good shape that I'm not going to use. I also have a more generic 36 hole (probably Formula) disc hub front and rear that would work as well. PM me.

    The vest would be no less bulky than a Camelbak considering that you have to find somewhere to carry the extra 5 bottles when not in use. The best way of carrying them would be to wear the vest but...

    North side from Umatilla to Biggs, then the south side. You'll have to deal with I-84 for a ways but once you hit The Dalles, the riding goes onto the Columbia Highway which is much better than the...

    All the inconvenience of water bottles in a hard to use package. What will they think of next?:rolleyes:

    I'll stick with a Camelbak.
