    If the one on your X-5 will slip into the opening on the body of the X-7 you are good to go. The SRAM parts list for 2013 and 2014 show the same part number for all the X series RDs. My guess is...

    I saw your thread by accident while looking at what was up in the Great Lakes regional discussion. It made me curious as I used to ride in Wisconsin when I lived there long ago (Sauk City on US HY...

    There are folding trikes but I can't recall reading about a 2-wheeled folding recumbent. Yes, there are folks who build their own recumbents with varying success. I have a friend who built a long...

    The components are decent mid-level Shimano 105 drive train components. I had Shimano 105 components on a trike in the past. They work very well, lasted me a very long time, and the fits and...

    Took a quick look at what is on our local CL under the title "road bike" for those that show up in the older age category. Most of the ones that are reasonably priced probably date to the mid 70s to...

    I think I am going to loose my mind if I read one more posting on how someone loosed X number of pounds riding their bike. Loose and lost. There is a difference.

    Patches have a peel-away layer which can be aluminum foil or plastic to protect the sticky side of the patch. You remove that layer just before applying the patch to the tube. It is easier to do...

    I'm surprised nobody has gotten more technical when it come to the comparison so here goes.

    I'm surprised that so many things went wrong. Unfortunately $200 gets you pretty much the same in another bike - the lowest end components on the market. It's too bad you don't know someone who is...
