    I've been using a small Bailey Works Super Pro for a few years now. Awesome bag, totally indestructible, and only looks a little big when walking around. Not much bigger than a regular, non-cycling...

    I double the recommendation on work gloves. Anything with a velcro wrist strap will do. They're great for this application, and often cost less than bike-specific gloves.

    Let's talk about your commuting first, because you'll be doing that 5 days a week for 4 years before you ever do the cross-country trip. How far are you commuting, how many days a week, what kind of...

    Holy cow, you should probably flip your stem back up and save yourself a few inches of exposed steerer tube. This is one of those situations where flipping the stem up is good for your bike and...

    Ignore these harsh posts. Everyone likes to forget how slow they were their first ride, but I recall going seven miles and about puking. A couple months later it was 20, then 50, then 80. It takes...

    Contes in Arlington is my favorite. They've got a lot of high end stuff, they know what they're talking about, and they support the local racing scene.

    Planetbike Superflash and the Light and Motion Vega. The Vega is awesome as long as you're going in a straight line. Very narrow, bright beam.

    Thanks for the review. I just ordered the same bike and waiting for it to arrive. Can't wait to take it out! I've been racing road and track for four years, and this will be my first mountain bike.

    I haven't ridden the Nashbar stuff, but I've heard it's pretty good. This is coming from roadies though who wear padded bib shorts so it may be different for you. They're knock-offs of the Fizik...

    I'm assuming the SSC SL is lighter, so that would be a little faster out of the turns. I don't think either wheel would make a big difference on aerodynamics - you'd be better off just getting lycra...

    I like watching the first set of turns after the start/finish. It's fun to watch a huge pro field negotiate a tricky, sharp off-camber turn at speed, plus there are no crowds there.

    That's a decent kilo time. At the regional championships here last year the Senior men ranged from 1:11 to 1:25. Your time would have put you tenth out of fifteen.
