    Had one of these on a SS MTB back in the day and it popped off when I hit a bump and flew into my rear wheel, severing mangling 2 spokes in the process.

    The rim (from what images I can find on Google) seem to take regular spokes so as long as you have a hub with the same number of holes, just calculate the new spoke length you need and you should be...

    While the H+ Son Archetype/105 wheelset should be a fine wheelset, a traditional 14mm (inside diameter) clincher will take a 28mm tire just fine. I'm not trying to talk anyone out of a wheel...

    A bit late to the party, so this will be of use only to posterity... but from my experience the SST AL is lighter than a Kilo TT. The geometry of the SST AL (roadie geo) is better suited for...

    I did the multimodal Blue Line commute (opposite direction) for a little more than a year on a foldie. It works but I didn't really enjoy it all that much. Glad I moved back to LA even though I...

    Venice or Olympic all the way. Not ideal but that would be my choice. My other suggestion would be Jefferson to National to Westwood to Palms then somehow get to Ocean Park.

    Glad to see Nashbar restocked the c-pant. My pair got cut up when I got hit by a car a few months back. Just copped 2 more pairs. I like them better than Swrve because Swrve knickers are too tight in...

    Just get one of those $300 singlespeeds. I don't know where you live but riding around the UCLA area isn't very fun (some small hills, lots of car traffic). When you find yourself doing 30 mile rides...

    From a utilitarian viewpoint, fixies are nice because the mechanics are simple and the maintenance (if any) is easy. Also, if you live where there are no major hills, one can make the argument that...
