    Just got back and that's pretty much what we found. We mostly hiked and rode around town and out to the falls with the kids. The last day we discovered the village trail. Its a hiking/mountain bike...

    Good Road Routes Near Telluride, CO?

    We're going to be in Telluride for a week soon and wondered if any locals know any good road or trail routes. Anything we can do on road/hybrid bikes reasonably. Technical mountain biking would not...

    That 2ft wide strip of separation and physical bars sticking up makes a big difference.

    Its not supposed to be fun. You're supposed to suffer and cry and curse cycling and the idiot who invented the bicycle. Then the next day you say, man, that was fun, lets do it again...

    It was definitely the fork. Maybe just this specific model/brand. I replaced it with a Orgin8 Steel Steerer, Carbon fork and its rock solid now.

    I have a Pacer and love it. If I had to criticize, I would say its on the heavy side and a bit flexy in the BB. But for the price range, I doubt you'll find much better. Its also indestructible and I...

    Less than 25% - on more casual rides 0%. I only get in the drops in headwinds and occasionally in a sprint.

    Quitting smoking + better lifestyle resulting in more energy. I would expect things to level out after a while when the nicotine withdrawals subside.

    He should have come to BF for fitting advice. I think we could help him out a lot. Maybe if he would post a video or something...

    Yeah, if I have good visibility for miles and there's no one but me around, I'm not stopping at a stop sign.

    I don't know. My Torelli has them and it bugs me, but I really like the bike otherwise.
    It also says "the bicycle that wins" in Italian - that bugs me even more :lol:

    Don't mind at all. Sometimes its me. I think more of a rider barely hanging on to a fast group than a punk acting like a big shot with a slower group. I'm all for people challenging themselves.

    I don't do it, but I really don't care if anyone else does. I have to agree, most jerseys look pretty tacky though. If I had lots of cash, I would probably wear all Rapha, or other such...

    I don't think shifting is a "worry" for anyone. That doesn't mean a new product cant come along offering improvements. This is illustrated by how the market is responding. If electronic shifting...

    Maybe its gullible, maybe we just don't care because we get on the bike and it feels good and we like it enough to buy it in spite of whatever gobledegook the marketing people say. I have never...

    Exactly, but how much more? .000005%? 25%?
    Is it a significant amount?

    That is what this thread is about. We all know there will be a difference. The question is, how much is that difference...

    This happens sometimes with slammed stems. Flip it back up and add some spacers...

    Can you change your wheel? I've had spokes make noise and I could swear it was coming from the BB.

    I would guess that its not very significant, but I really have no idea. Maybe a stiff frame just feels good to some riders - I'm good with that.

    I get that, but the argument here is about how much of the energy do you get back. For example, you store more energy in a soft spring, but you get 99.99% of it back vs storing a small amount of...

    Yes, in the real world that is correct. In the mathematical model the loss of the spring is modeled in the damper. It is an intrinsic part of material of the spring. Obviously we don't have shock...

    If the same force is applied, changing the spring constant changes the amount of deflection. Think about sitting on a car. When you sit on a Caddy with a cushy suspension, it will deflect a decent...

    I don't see how that equation tells you anything about how much energy is stored by a frame. If you model it as a spring, changing the spring constant will just cause a corresponding adjustment in...
