    Then again doing stuff DIY is going to save some real money.
    Sourcing and building yourself can drop the price drastically, and what probably saves most is the wheels.

    Brakes. I know I'm probably one of the only ones with brake issues (in all our rim braked bikes btw...) but there you have it.

    I mean they are just so finicky aren't they? Think of a normal...

    When I build a wheel for myself I'm totally yay! However I'm slowly progressing towards the point where my preferences in components are so high end that I currently can't afford any new wheel...

    Oh man you are a gift that just keeps on giving.

    Offroad a hydro just works better. Less possibility of clogging, dirtying, jamming (due to dirt getting in the housing). Plus a hydro is often more...

    Ok first of all
    Please explain bolded. I don't seem to get it. I mean I must have understood the dangers of squatting wrong if the goblet squat poses no threat...

    People always assume it's the BB but it can really be anywhere from the seatpost to the dropouts.

    I would imagine a goblet squat can eff you up just as badly as any other squat if performed incorrectly. It's no miracle move and does require good technique, just like every other thing involving...

    My sitbones are in the 125-130mm region so the antares is pretty much as thin a saddle I can use. But for a sportier position it works well (sitbones get narrower when you lean forward). In my future...
  13. care to elaborate why the roubaix is faster?...

    care to elaborate why the roubaix is faster? There's certainly no physics reason for it to be faster. Then again if you have wide tires on one and thin on the other it may be an affecting factor.

    the reason ghe romin comes in so wide varieties is that since it's in no way flat saddle and actually has pretty steep drop down at the sides it also has much less real estate for the sitbones than a...

    I put it to you that even 15-20 hours of exercise a week is very beneficial healthwise if the intensity is properly controlled. If you do that 15-20 hours with htfu and "feel the burn" tempo riding...

    28 is not necessarily too little at the rear if the wheel is built properly. If it isn't then it's not enough. But then again any badly built wheel is a bad wheel for a clyde.
