    I'm bummed that you have to spend the big bucks to get the H1 fit (most aggressive.) I've got a Domane, which is awesome for longer rides, but I find myself wishing that I had a head tube that was 5...

    Sorry to hear, man. Do you have other group rides in your area? You might want to try checking all of them out to get a feel for dynamics. I'm sure you're bound to find one that fits you well. Also,...

    Also, don't get discouraged if you get dropped (if, it is in fact a drop ride.) Keep on riding until you no longer get dropped; you'll become a much stronger, faster rider.

    I love my compact when riding solo. I've noticed that I only wish I had a standard double when I'm doing club rides in a pace line. It's much, much easier to get to 25+ when you're sitting on a...

    Stranger things have happened. There's a guy on my train who has a sweeeeet Pinarello Fred'ed out with nylon platform pedals, mirror, and one of those schwinn seat post racks.

    For bikes without provisions for rack and fenders ( for commuting ) I would recommend the Bontrager: BackRack Lightweight (Model #08214) which you can use with a seatpost clamp and quick release...

    Sounds like I need more than 1 pair of bibs.

    I do, however, have a pair of the Performance brand winter tights. I'm not sure how high up the chain they are, but I have done a 200K in those no...

    This logic is completely sound, but it's still a little bit of a bummer. I do 30-60 mile club rides throughout the week, but I also do brevets solo centuries maybe once or twice a month, depending...

    I've got the same pair, and I'm not so hot on them. The chamois is shaped wierdly for my body, and after about 80 miles, starts to hurt (feels like it's cutting/digging in?) Also, the bottoms where...

    Nice. I've got the same bike, same color. I've been loving it, too. (aside from the white saddle/ bar tape.)

    Is white bar tape faux pas? It's what came with my Domane, and I've cleaned it no less than 10 times in the last month since I've had it. Aaaand it's still somewhat grimy.

    It's up to the club leadership to set forth examples and express their expectations and concerns. I've been riding with a club in Chicago the last 3-4 outings, and the ride leader (a very cool dude)...

    That's how it is in Chicago, too. People are nuts and don't understand depreciation.

    Yep - check your fit. Putting too much weight on your hands indicates something may need to be tweaked. In my past experience, hurting hands were because I was putting too much weight on them; my...

    Did the Univega have 32mm tires? When I switch between my Voyageur and my Domane, there is a huge difference in handling and 'nervousness'. My Voyageur has 32mm tires while my Domane has 25mm; I have...

    My experience is the exact opposite of yours. My '73 World Voyageur touring bike weighs 28 lbs stock, 34 lbs with aluminum fenders and rack. While I think it's very dependable, it climbs like a sack...

    This footage is awesome and is so great and exciting for the sport. I really liked the final kilometers of stage 8; I had no idea tight quarters were and that bumping and pushing happened.
