    Damn, as much as I hate flats, I love lightweight tires with higher air volume. Less than 300g on my 700x33 tires, and for their width they have an amazing profile, much more volume than your average...

    Gotta say I'm in love with my Jack Brown Greens. They come in ~290g which is an amazing combination of insanely lightweight, with a huge amount of air volume, and pretty damn smooth rolling(lighter...

    650b bead diameter = 584mm
    26" bead diameter = 559mm

    I think you might have misheard their reasons for choosing that size (650b is generally chosen for shorter rider instead of 700c, not...

    Why would you have to get rid of hydraulic with drop bars?

    Only parking lot test rides. Unfortunately the only 2014 models I saw all had the recalled sram brakes. I've ridden the 105 equipped 2015 model which as far as I can tell uses the same wheels and...

    You might need some more patience, we haven't seen any comax bikes roll through yet in our region, and I know we are waiting on a couple. That said, it is based on the aluminum escape which is hugely...

    2015 giant defy is specd for 28s, you might be able to squeeze more in, not sure.

    Normally I'd say take it to the local shop first. But since you got a big box store item and not a bike item, not sure what you should do. Schwinn is generally not sold in bike shops anymore for a...

    Ignorance is not a valid argument. 27.5 is much more than a fad, and the real players have all put their weight behind it in the realm of sport and race riding

    Lol. Bikesdirect? You might as well argue that because 95% of bikes you see at wal mart have threaded headsets, clearly threadless setups are not mainstream. Bikes direct is a non factor outside the...

    Toe overlap is just a nice byproduct, the main issue is not butchering geometry by fitting too tall wheels on a short frame, and the capability to run big fat tires on a road bike without feeling...

    Revolt seems to fill a gap between Anyroad and TCX which is harder to define. Seems like a good bike, a few aesthetic and functional things kept me from looking at it. I actually find the TCX to be...

    Don't take it so personally. Pretty sure he wasn't trying to insult you by saying it was in your control. You know anyone who has ridden for years has had mystery blow outs, flats, brakes going...

    The giant avail *should* fit most 28s, possibly being a tight fit at the brake. It's also a great bike and probably the most well regarded women's endurance road bike. My gf loves hers.

    Sounds like a corn. Trust me, do everything you can to get rid of it. After breaking my knee and not walking for two months I had major atrophy. After a couple more months when I started working full...

    I don't think he was claiming any more speed from it. He stated that if you prefer riding faster get the cf fork. I'm guessing that's because high frequency chatter is made more comfortable when you...

    If you're not riding in increment weather, those disk brakes offer no actual performance benefit besides "feeling better" to some people. Modern v brakes offer excellent stopping power,...

    It's not about upgrading it, it's about the bike being so horribly assembled that if you're lucky it will be ridable, but not like it should be. If you're less lucky it will have one or more...

    If you are fast, and have any hills the compact could be limiting. I'm not very fast but I often max out my 46/11 on mild descents. Even on flat ground I find I'm only one or two gears from maxing...

    I prefer the fatter side of thin, or the thinner side of fat.

    32mm is great for skinnies, upwards of 45mm for thin fatties.
