    At an earlier point, they did cut off several distributors and kept it to a select few U.S. companies. If I remember correctly, I think J&B did not make the cut while QBP did. But at a later point,...

    I forget the date, but this was before this season started. I was working at a shop in Dallas when it all went down. I don't know how the big guys feel, but it's been hard on smaller dealer. We even...

    I will second the DeFeet wool gloves. Giro makes some "more stylish" options for not much more.

    I have had lots of cool to cold weather gloves, but the most surprising performers were the...

    Not really. Shimano is direct only now, so it should be the same for most everyone depending on your buying power. If you have the cash to buy in bulk and buy complete sets, it's going to be cheaper....

    Absolutely. I bought my Domane thinking it could pull double duty after crashing a commuter spec cross bike. But now I don't even want to jack with fenders on the domane and think I might end up...

    Curious if you were running these tubeless with the Bontrager rim strip system. Hutchison doesn't list Bontrager wheels for some reason, but I don't see why they wouldn't work.

    It's not a horrible color, it's just that we are on the far back end of the "murdered out" look. I bought an equally "stealthy" bike after telling myself I wouldn't buy one because it was boring, but...

    Geez, 6 pages of this and still there are sheeple chugging their poison cokes because the "industry" tells them it's safe. I learned a LONG time ago that coke is only interested in my wallet and not...

    I'm actually really surprised to see that. How is the rear clearance? Stock rims? I think I saw a shot of someone putting some "big" 28's on it and that seemed really tight. I think I'd be pretty...

    Agreed. I edited that one too late at night. Rushed the pictures and thought I didn't have a clear side shot.

    Another boring all black bike for people to complain about, plus terrible staging. I aim to please those who aim to complain.

    But seriously, this bike is awesome. 16 pounds 5 ounces with pedals,...

    Even though I'm below the average age here, I grew up watching Mork and Mindy on Nick at Nite when I was a kiddo. It led me to look out for all of his stuff, including watching some wildly age...

    I wasn't talking about seated, sustained climbs. Good technique will make a bigger difference in that case, regardless of frame stiffness or weight. I was talking about standing and putting in bursts...

    No, he's talking about the younger bikes. It's like you said, the weight is not significant considering acceleration, but imagine hitting a steep climb on a 70's steel frame and then hitting that...

    Like many have already said, this is great advice all around, especially for triathletes that aren't usually in direct competition, but looking for personal bests. For road racing, I think it's...

    Well, even though the thread has derailed itself beyond anything resembling a sound discourse, I just wanted to share my thoughts on the original article in question.

    When I first read it, I...
  19. How many of you have super sketchy roads right at the end of your commute?

    What I mean is, perhaps you have a reasonably safe route to work, but the last mile or two is a torn up road, one lane each way, with absolutely no shoulder.

    I got a new job that I start on...

    Kind of an older thread, but since I've recently obsessed over and acquired a 5.9, and currently work at a Trek dealer, I thought I would add some stuff.

    I was more or less in the same boat when I was building up a steel frame with modern Campy. I had a Record alloy crank that was given to me, so I was just using that. I happened to find a carbon...

    I was going to make a jab about golf clothing, but then realized I belong to the spandex club.

    About country clubs, though, that's just too much. You need a dress code for a casual game? I could...
