    I find roadies have a predilection to overly blame others for being directly at fault. In reality, NOBODY wants to crash, and in fact, takes all precautions to avoid it. Yes, there are some...

    You'd be surprised how fast the tire wears down if you using it regularly. I've never let mine get down to the point where it 'pops' on the trainer, but I've had tires wear down enough to be...

    Wow someone needs to relax. I'll bet that SAG slowed you down for what - 3 seconds, if even that? Foothill is a 2-lane, low-traffic road that isn't even that long. It's particularly good for...

    If there's one thing the US desperately needs, it's an INCREASE in gas prices. Perhaps not at the peak of the recession, but in general, gas prices are so subsidized in the US that it crushes any...

    Road bikes make it SIGNIFICANTLY easier to go 20+ compared to a hybrid, which is still yet faster than a mtn bike. The difference is not trivial - I can hold 24mph for an hour solo on FLAT course on...

    You can "learn" to like only top-end gruppos, but there's nothing wrong at all with intro-level gruppos. I've got a Sora triple bike and a DA Cervelo, and the Sora is excellent - I don't miss my DA...

    Those wheels came stock on my Cervelo. Absolutely no problems with them here even after some serious riding on them, including some pretty rough roads. I'm only 155lbs though, so that may be a...

    I'm surprised at all the negative advice about the carbon fiber bikes for commuting. Come on now - it's fine - MORE than fine. Carbon fiber is not like glass - it doesn't just "explode" on you. These...

    I've got one and it works totally fine. Yes, a bit hard to get on, but that's par for these tires. I've been riding the crap out of mine and I haven't noticed any premature wear, as compared to...

    2-3x per week for me, 36 miles round trip. Takes 2 hours, and it's a great workout. Unfortunately, takes about 45 minutes longer than if I did it by car, since traffic isn't so bad around here during...

    Man, it's not that complicated.

    Flat surface at near eye level on the bike, and you're done. I used my washing machine in my garage - put the laptop on top, and I'm good to go.

    You won't break your bike / bike trainer by sprinting on it. I've done loads of sprints on my Cycleops2 in the biggest gear at 90+rpm (I've hit 35mph on the rear wheel sensor on it) no problem.

    +1. You NEVER need a carbon frame. Ever.

    But that doesn't mean you shouldn't get one if that's what excited you and fires you up about cycling. Go for it if your wallet can deal with it - I...

    The trainer with no additional devices/dvds is mental death. I'm a die-hard user, and I can't do it for more than a week if I'm just on a trainer with nothing else.

    Please further enlighten us - I'm looking for a way do put in a wedge that doesn't interfere with the quick on/off of the O-ring and won't break off by accident.

    Interestingly, the Fenix throws as far as the MS , but the spread is much...

    Economically, unless you ditch the car completely, it's hard to justify bike commuting.

    Ironically, the CLOSER your commuter, the better the bike becomes, because you don't have to warm up the car...
