    I'd say go for it. It's a beauty. Only thing I notice, maybe, is that the inner and middle chainrings may be a little worn- ask the owner how old the chain/chainrings are. You could probably haggle...

    I'd ask you to reconsider. You'll probably be happier with tiagra/105 in the long run than with sora. Instead of worrying about the frame specifics, I'd concentrate on the fit and test ride the...

    You need to decide why you want a road bike. If it's purely for fitness, you're going to be more than fine on your current bike with slicks. You have to remember that road bikes may weigh less but...

    Too bad. It looks like an awesome route. If I was out there by myself, I'd probably bag it after 50 or 60 miles. With a 10AM start time, I'd be lucky to finish 90 before sunset. Add to it 6 hours...

    It's an easy fix. You need to adjust your limit screw for your higher chain ring. Limit screws restrict the movement of the derailleur so that it can't overshoot your largest or smallest cog. Look at...

    Set the limit screws on the front derailleur so that it only moves between two chainrings and she can probably use the sora shifters.
