    New Bike!

    Lapierre Sensium 400 frame, built up with Ultegra parts and Miche wheels. I've had it about a week, and with our lousy weather haven't ridden it much yet, but so far I'm loving it!

    I'll probably be there. Plan on bad weather! Last year pouring rain; 2011 bitter cold. You'll love it.
  4. Brand New Shimano 105 or gently used Ultegra 6700?

    After much research and several test rides, I've decided on a new bike at my favorite LBS. It's in stock and fits me perfectly, and is currently built up with a full 2012 105 group.

    Here's where...

    My conversion back in February (non UST): lose the tube, switch the rim strip, add the Stan's. Pretty simple. Did a re-charge of Stan's in July. Close to 1000 trail miles with no flats.

    You've probably thought of this, but why not just sell your bike and buy a new Trek 2.1 (or something comparable)? You'd have your compact and all new stuff for about the same $$ as upgrading your...

    Thanks for the feedback. Like I said, as it turns out it's not a problem, just odd that they would advertise it as a compact.

    I spent two full seasons on an '06 F300 and I'd highly recommend it. No, the Manitou isn't an air shock, but it worked fine. The V-Brakes were strong enough to lock up either wheel and yet had a...

    New Bike Day!

    Just picked up an '08 Gary Fisher HiFi. After two years on an entry-level HT I decided it was time to upgrade. One ride, one bath so far. I like it.

    Thanks...yeah I know 'you get what you pay for,' But my bike only cost $600 new, so it's tough to justify $450 for a fork.

    Fork Upgrade?

    I started riding in spring 07 on a Cannondale F300. I'm pretty happy with the bike overall, but I think it's a good frame w/mediocre parts. The stock fork is a Manitou 'Trace Elite 100' which I...
