    I've had no problems with my Minewt 600, but that's probably not a very useful recommendation for you.

    The traditional "rules" for lever setup are that you set the drops level parallel to the ground and have the bottom of the lever even with the bottom of the bar. Start by disregarding these rules.

    This much, at least, you have control over.

    Here are shots of a couple of my bikes with Bell Lap bars:

    I would agree with the "heel" suggestion. I read something recently explaining that using the straight leg + heel method effectively gives you the same result as the ~30 degree knee bend method.

    This may explain why the LBS thinks your seat is too high. It's generally agreed that you should have a slight bend in your knee at the bottom of your pedal stroke. The guy who did my most recent...

    Very strange. Any chance you're using presta valve with a schrader hole and no adapter?

    You can use any 160mm rotor with those brakes, but I'm pretty sure these match the ones that came with my HY/RD's and I'd guess the Spyres are the same:

    As it happens, 1100 grams is also the weight of a 26x2.0 Marathon Plus, which is about what the OP is using.

    Since I've already been shamelessly shilling for Marathon Supremes in this thread, I'll...

    I was suspicious of this. Velox rim tape is fairly soft, and I was having a hard time imagining a flat caused by using a strip that was too wide. I mean, I suppose you could wear a hole in a tube...

    As always, the third element of the trade-off is cost. While it's true the better grip does come at the cost of tire life, with a sufficiently advanced tire compound you can get better grip without...

    Yes!

    I've never actually ridden Marathon Plus for any significant time. Schwalbe rates their grip higher than I would have expected for such a durable tire (4 blocks). That said, they rate their...

    Have you looked at Gevenalle shifters? They offer 1x9, including 1x9 with full hydraulic brakes. The functionality is outstanding and the prices are very reasonable.

    Either one will serve you just fine. The Rove is more oriented toward the type of riding you describe, but mostly because it is more relaxed by design. If you prefer the sportier feel of the Snake...

    I thought he was trying to give the motorbike a pull so the cameras could stay on him.

    He looked so strong today, and he didn't even seem tired afterward.

    I thought it was a bad sign when TJ referred to himself as a time trial specialist before the start of racing today. It seems like every year he has at least one bad day in the mountains.

    TJ is within 1:12 of second place. He has beaten everyone above him by that much in a late time trial at least once.

    Not confused at all. He's already got the polka dot jersey. What kind of goal would that be? ;)
