    If we have enough riders to go with 3 groups, we do an A, B, and C ride.

    A ride is a drop ride. You fall off, you either ride on your own, or you mosey along until the B group picks you up. Most...

    Twice? ;)

    Total dick move. On my club group rides, we may roll 4 way stop signs, but only after the leader stops and puts a foot down. Of course, these aren't urban roads. And we never run a...

    I have to say that my Synapse's rear triangle doesn't handle rough roads any better than the wrecked Madone that it replaced. Part of that may be due to the alloy seat post. Both had alloy bars, and...

    Twenty miles in an hour and a half is about 13.5 mph. You'll be fine. This is a charity ride, and I guarantee that you won't be anywhere close to the slowest rider on the route.

    Nomade used to be a Motobecane touring model from the 1970s. I owned one at one point. Bikes Direct may still own the trademark?

    In 2012, I believe that 8 speed road Shimano was still 2300, not Claris. The 2012 catalog only goes down to the alloy Sora version (Synapse 7). I don't see the 8 speed there??
