    I have a hard time believing a saddle could wear out in 3k miles. I got some bruising on the sit bones when I ramped up my riding to 3 days in a row (5 days total) every week. It went away eventually...

    The Specialized Roubaix Pro tires on the Expert are pretty decent tires. I've ridden both and don't think there's much difference in ride quality between the two. But I would bet the GP4000S (II) is...

    The Roubaix disc will actually clear a 32-35mm tire. Even the Roubaix with rim brakes will fit a 30mm tire. Seems a bit odd to make an off road bike like the Diverge that doesn't fit 40's.

    Cynergy Cycles also rents Specialized road bikes. I don't know if they're the latest/greatest version though. I would guess that Helen's will let you take a Cervelo out for longer than 15 minutes if...

    The OP was kind of boasting about eating junk food and drinking lots of beer etc. That's not something to be proud of IMO. And I had a BMI of ~29 at my heaviest. Hills can be quite humbling if you...

    Extra weight doesn't really hurt you much on the flats. Still, a BMI of 30 is nothing to boast about.

    The 9sp Sora is OK but a little sloppy IMO. For $800 you can afford to upgrade it to Shimano 105 5800 and still only have ~$1500 invested which is cheap for that bike. She can always ride it for a...

    The OP is asking about the PR4 Endurance which is a completely different tire than the PR4 Service Course. The Endurance model doesn't roll as well but is supposed to last quite a bit longer.

    Tough year for Justin Williams. He crashed hard earlier in the season and messed up his shoulder.

    I got rained on Saturday. It was coming down pretty good in Venice...for 10-15 minutes anyways. Clouds mean it's cooler so I don't mind a break from the sunshine at times.

    I get an endrophin buzz from riding. I'm guessing it's the same thing as a "runner's high." While I think there's a certain intensity required I feel the "buzzed" feeling after my easy (2 hour) zone...

    A new Allez Sport lists for $930 so it does seem a bit high. Sort of depends on what you value the "upgrades" at. I don't think the bike is worth more than $500. At this point, with 2015's about to...

    Dork disc won't protect against chain drops. That's what a chain catcher is for. I think you mean the chain went past the easiest cog on the cassette and hit the dork disk rather than the spokes.

    Yes, with at least 28 rear spokes and you could probably get the bike home by opening up the rear brake caliper. At your weight with one popped spoke already I'd go with 32 spokes in back. Something...

    The S5 is one of the most aero road frames out there so I'd say it's more like:

    1) Rider/Position
    2) Frame
    3) Wheels
    4) Helmet

    The F8 isn't really an aero road bike. They're just saying it's...

    I've seen it happen to skinny dudes too. I think saddle type, drop, foot position etc. all factor in. If you figure 4k pedal strokes per hour it doesn't take much to start wearing away at a half...

    I doubt the driver would stop if it was intentional. He could always claim he didn't know he hit anything. I don't know if you've driven a full size pickup like that but they are massive. I had one...

    No, I know road cyclists like to hate on mirrors but riding on the shoulder with automotive traffic to my left I'd be wearing a mirror. Gives you a shot to bail in situation like that. No time to...

    The 10sp di2 shouldn't really make a difference. You're just routing the cable a different way. According to Felt electronic vs. mechanical saves 7w@25mph due to cables/routing. I would route it like...

    Just curious why you didn't run the Di2 cable with the rear brake cable like Felt shows in their white paper? It's supposed to be less aero to run the cable like pictured on your bike.

    The weight on the chart is for the rider + bike + gear so that's an extra 20lbs. at least for most of us. I weigh about 160lbs + at least 20lbs for bike/gear and run my front 23@85psi and my rear...
