    Wider tires provide better traction and cornering. And yes, I think that your rim that can ride a 23 should be able to handle a 25.

    Just bring your expensive bicycle inside. I do, and just carry the bike through the aisles. This works perfectly if I just need a quick something to eat post ride. Don't bring your bike inside and...

    Co-Motion Norwester, a complete through Co-Mo. The lifetime warranty does not cover "acts of God".
  6. I will bring my road bike into the store or...

    I will bring my road bike into the store or coffee shop ONLY during times of slow business. I don't enjoy riding "beater bikes" for errands because it isn't fun, enjoyable, or plush enough of a ride....

    The shop didn't have to do what they're doing. I didn't even ask: the manager came to this decision after talking with the owner. Bike Gallery went above and beyond what those "hardened shops" would...

    The frame is being sent back to Co-Motion, repairs and paint will be paid for by Bike Gallery.

    Ultegra 6800, not sure how much force was pushed exactly, and it was my left foot that drives the pedal at a stop (right foot down).

    Yes, I agree it is expensive. And owning one was a dream of mine for a long time. That is why I saved. Co-Motion is handmade in Eugene, OR. I like the idea of a quality bicycle made in the US by...

    Good topic! I don't tolerate the heat well. Anything above 95F is too uncomfortable for me to enjoy riding my bicycle. During those times when I'm required to ride (such as commuting), I will...

    Co-Motion lifetime warranty does not cover "acts of God". I completely understand that...but think that Shimano should have covered it. Thankfully the Bike Gallery in Beaverton, Oregon, has excellent...

    The Bike Gallery called. Shimano is shipping a new crankset today, and that is great, but I am far more concerned about my frame. I'll get another call back by today or tomorrow with more details.

    I purchased the bike as a complete from Co-Motion, and the bike shop who is a dealer put it together. I expect this to be fully covered. No excuse for a 6 month old $4500 bike with low miles to do...

    and $10 that Shimano won't cover my $1800 frame. Just great. I'll have to see what the shop says tomorrow after they contact Co-Motion.

    One of the advantages of cycling IS being able to safely roll through red lights AFTER stopping to make sure the coast is clear. When cycling, I always treat stop signs like yield signs, and red...
  21. Is this saddle adjustment safe? (photo)

    I'm using a stock Thomson Elite seatpost until I get a seatpost with setback, per my professional fitter. In the meantime he setup my saddle like this. You can actually see in the photo that the...
