    The problem with two wheel vehicles is that if you have a catastrophic tire failure, you can't ride on one tire. Think of what would happen if the tire failed going downhill at 35-40 mph. I don't...

    Think of what you can do with $1000! Don't be a fool, the 2013 Ultegra is already smooth as butter in the grand scheme of things. 11 speed? Meh, it's just new toys for the boys. You could buy...

    That sounds like a great start, Kook. You probably have good fitness level, but the body bits are going to have to get used to riding. I remember getting on a bike I was just running. Oh my,...

    I didn't want a white bike when I got my 2003 road bike. But I quickly became a fan of white when I realized how much better visibility it offers than a dark color. I was excited when white was an...

    There is the Stevens Creek Trail, Bay trail and other MUPs in the area that are two way biking. You definitely need a bell.

    The first question is does she want a more upright riding position? Mrs browngw has a bike where the bars are a lot higher than seat. That is more of a comfort bike than a hybrid. And it has a...

    The Expert has road gearing with an 11-32 cassette which gives you a granny gear. It also has the new 11 speed 105 components which are very nice! I'm not as familiar with SRAM, but those look like...

    As a pedestrian on a MUP, I always ack with a hand wave or thumbs up when someone announces they are passing. The one sign I usually don't see on MUPs which I think would be beneficial is "People...

    The Sirrus is a popular and well liked bike on the forums. Don't worry about carbon vs aluminum; most people ride aluminum bikes and live to tell about it! The problem with carbon fiber frames is...

    Those bars look very deep. That's quite a drop if you ride in the drops. The bike is looking great. I like the white bar tape with the titanium. Droooooooool!

    When you test ride bikes, tire pressure can alter the feel of the bike. With higher pressure, you'll feel more of the road. 10 lbs less pressure and the tires will absorb more of the road and give...

    Weight is not the whole story. A bike can feel faster if the wheels (rims) are lighter. It take less energy to get them spinning. Also power transfer from the cranks. Could be different length...

    Bike availability. In the bay area, the good bikes get snapped up quickly. He rode the bike to work and didn't have to worry about anyone stealing it. The bar tape was yellow and very dirty, but...

    I think $350 would be a good price for that bike. Not sure where you live, but a coworker bought a real beater for $200.

    mmmmmm. I like it. But then I like bikes and clothing that offer maximum visibility. No black for me. The green should hide the dust pretty well.

    I still enjoy riding my 2003 Trek. If it's clean, rust free and rides well, buy it if the price is fair. Are the tires in good condition or dry rotted? You might use that as a bargaining point. ...

    It's not the bike, it's whoever put the bike together. Go back to the shop and talk to the manager/owner. That's pretty awful service. And I would not go back to that LBS. That same LBS would...

    Cover up the Motobecane and putting a non-adjustable stem on that bike and people will be asking you what your great looking bike is. It seems like a more than fair price for the product you...

    That looks like a pretty good choice for bike. A hybrid will have mounting holes for fenders and racks; road bikes generally do not. The bike has 28c tires which is more road bikeish. You may find...

    You don't want a carbon seatpost from BD. As other posters have pointed out, the "carbon fiber" seatpost is an aluminum seatpost with carbon fiber sheet glued on. I think that's a nice bike for...
