    My doctor told me to get off the drops. Have a pinched nerve. Went to a flatbar and all is well. Tempted to try drops again, so we'll see.

    It still might be a little squirely. These are flat bar road bikes. I'd buy the tires first and try them. Something fat with some nobs. See how they handle before you spend money on wheels.

    This was what I saw in the mid to late 80s. Half the players were doped up. Even the coaches kid went super human. Then you started seeing weird injuries, a lot of which you see today. I think...

    This. The humps are across the driving lanes only which is nice. They are the length of both lanes and maybe 8 feet across with a crown that's probably 6-8" in height. Just enough to make sure...

    It's a nice set up. Easy to adjust, stays tuned. Have had zero problems with the STIs or the flat bar config. Really happy with the choice. The gearing is nice and was able to use the short rear. ...
