    Revolt seems to fill a gap between Anyroad and TCX which is harder to define. Seems like a good bike, a few aesthetic and functional things kept me from looking at it. I actually find the TCX to be...

    Not me. Even doing moderate climbing on mine (forget actual measurements, on the longer side, came on my Large sized TCX) With the stem flipped down I found it was way too easy to accidentally...

    Don't take it so personally. Pretty sure he wasn't trying to insult you by saying it was in your control. You know anyone who has ridden for years has had mystery blow outs, flats, brakes going...

    The giant avail *should* fit most 28s, possibly being a tight fit at the brake. It's also a great bike and probably the most well regarded women's endurance road bike. My gf loves hers.

    I don't think he was claiming any more speed from it. He stated that if you prefer riding faster get the cf fork. I'm guessing that's because high frequency chatter is made more comfortable when you...

    If you're not riding in increment weather, those disk brakes offer no actual performance benefit besides "feeling better" to some people. Modern v brakes offer excellent stopping power,...

    It's not about upgrading it, it's about the bike being so horribly assembled that if you're lucky it will be ridable, but not like it should be. If you're less lucky it will have one or more...

    If you are fast, and have any hills the compact could be limiting. I'm not very fast but I often max out my 46/11 on mild descents. Even on flat ground I find I'm only one or two gears from maxing...

    I prefer the fatter side of thin, or the thinner side of fat.

    32mm is great for skinnies, upwards of 45mm for thin fatties.
