    People should be trying to avoid collisions at all costs. If the bridge is narrow, you should wait until whoever is already on the bridge clears. I see cyclists with very poor manners. They will...

    You are probably right. I was reading some Amazon reviews and one said that the bar end loosened as they were climbing uphill. Not good! I wonder if there is a weight penalty to the internal grip...

    Not sure what you mean by that. The Ergon's clamp on the ends. The outer edge of the grip is has an edge that mates to clamp. It doesn't move.

    I thought I remembered an ERGON grip/bar combo that was similar: Ergon GP5

    Great review. Never seen those before. Wish I knew about them sooner. Love long bar ends and those look perfect. Those look well though out and you don't even need to wrap the bars ends!

    I hated my old triple. Never used the granny gear. Going to a double or in my case a 1x9 saved a lot of weight. I just don't like the square taper bottom bracket but don't know about the potential...

    Check out Planet Bike Protege 9 Wireless. Has basic data and you can store data for 2 bikes with a press of a button. They also sell the mounting hardware for the 2nd bike (mount for computer and...

    No it's not normal. My Trek was perfect. The next year, I forgot to bring the bike in for the free tune within the specified time and was there for another reason--they noted that I didn't get a...

    If you are talking seats, rear derailleurs, shifters, grips, etc. then definitely. If the bikes are different models, they may have different seat post diameters, handlebar diameters, front...

    Get what you can afford from the get go. It definitely is more expensive to upgrade later. That said, if you still love the bike, upgrading a few years down the line with newer, better components...

    As far as Shimano goes, I would say that performance wise, not a big difference between 105-ultegra-duraace in terms of derailleurs. Rear derailleur matters much more than front derailleur. With...

    The extra gear is huge. I can have a tighter spacing of gears such that I can almost always find the perfect gear for what I'm doing. My 9 and 10 speeds are set up similarly but I sometimes find on...

    I guess I can't win for stating an opinion. 9 speed preference for longevity of the chain? I tell, I own a 9 speed and a 10 speed and that is not even a consideration. Not even. That's like...

    Hey, if you are happy with the bike you paid for, that is all that matters. I do like that the frame is carbon and that the wheelset is respectable. Everything else I am not too thrilled with. It...

    That is exactly my point. It may be a carbon bike for $900 but the rest of the bike isn't what I would want. Heck, I would take an Escape RX over the Cafe Century any day. If I spend close to a...

    Bikes are no different from cars, homes, yards, etc. You can personalize things with stuff that you like. If it is already to your liking, great!

    Where is this analysis? There is a big difference in weight between aluminum and the better CF frames. It is only on the low end that there isn't a significant difference. Differences in the...

    Which is about the same as a good aluminum flat bar road bike. Not that there is anything wrong with that. The carbon frame will likely have a better ride. Just disappointed they couldn't throw in...

    So true. Cracked seatpost later, I bought some FinishLine friction gel and torque wrench for the new carbon seatpost.

    That is a sweet bike with a lot of nice touches. Me personally, I would have gone with tighter spacing on the cassette and used a standard compact double 50/34 or 53/39 up front--but I don't do a...

    At that price, it's a steal! CF fork, 400 series shifters, 105 RD, disc brakes, brand name components...hellz yeah!

    Is that really a new bike from 2003??? How is that possible and if so, would the parts really be in new condition and not rusted out by sitting in a storage warehouse somewhere?

    Looks pretty superficial for the most part. There are some fine scratches in the in the carbon though. I would ride it and keep an eye on it. Maybe even put some epoxy over top of it.
