    I'm riding a 2009 Raleigh team. I think the frame spec is real similar to the 2008, but mine has BB30. It's a very nice riding bicycle. I'm happy with my Raleigh, but at 6'2" you are better off...

    My cross bike works just fine for the conditions you've described as well as some conditions that many would argue warrants a mtb with fat tyres.

    This isn't exactly Spot related, but the review I wrote for my T6 should give you some good ideas about how the Spot bikes could be spec'd, as well as some insight to exactly how low maintainence the...

    I've been really happy with both of my Raleighs so I'm kind of partial to the Furley. I've talked to several Furley owners and they say the bike is just bomber. Kind of heavy, but durable and...

    I really prefer the bullhorns to a traditional straight bar, especially with the TT levers on the ends. The hand position is more natural to me, but I have to admit, the stem is a little long and I...

    It was my first high end MTB. Trek's first foray into carbon fiber. I road the components right off of it and let it sit as a bare frame for almost 10 years. It always fit well and road so nice...

    I would suggest riding 20-25 miles four or five times a week to start. Maybe throw in a 40 mile ride every two weeks. Frequency is more important than duration, IMO. If I was only doing 2-3 rides...

    A Wound Up Team X fork would look really nice with that frame. Price probably put it out of the running, but it would have matched the rear stays REALLY nicely. I have the disc version on my...

    If you are in a regular routine, shouldn't your "benchmark" be constant improvement? Seems like a moving target. It probably also depends on what metric(s) you are relying upon most heavily to...

    I say it depends upon the frame geometry more than anything. I have a 1996 aluminum Cannondale that was downright abusive until I swapped to a carbon post. The carbon post upgraded it to only...

    I have a Cyclops Fluid 2 and a Kurt Kinetics Rock and Roll trainer. Both fluid. Both very nice units. I had the CF2 first and when my wife wanted her own trainer I let her take it and bought...

    I am not comfortable putting my carbon road bike on the trainer. I use an older aluminum road bike that is the same size, but a slightly less aggressive fit/geometry on the trainer. Through the...

    Not only that but the stretches from Montrose to Gunnison and Salida to Canon City are not the safest places to ride a bike. Twisty, narrow, shoulderless roads with average traffic speeds in excess...

    I live in Castle Rock.

    Occasionally I commute to Centennial airport via Crowfoot Valley highway and Cherry Creek trail/470 trail. As a distance reference, this ranges from 20-25 miles depending...

    I checked and I'm running a 50T - 24T combination. This was the recommendation of the guys from Spot for a cross bike. I'm pretty happy with the ratios for how I ride the bike. The low end is...

    1. I'm almost certain the rear is 24T. The front is either a 42T or 39T. I will check tomorrow.
    2. No modifications to the frame were necessary. It all goes together like it was intended to go...

    Recently made the switch to GP4000's from an inferior tire. The difference for me is that I was ready to spend 10x the cost of the tires on a new set of wheels. The ride quality of the GP4000's has...

    I do my 23 mile door to door commute on my SS. Northbound Elevation gain is ~800'. Southbound is ~1500'. Flatter would be better, but I actually prefer my SS to any of my geared bikes for...

    I don't have experience with that particular model, but I can comment on Raleigh bikes in general. I have two. They are both fantastic bikes. I would purchase another Raleigh in a heartbeat.

    Why is everyone so enamoured with disc brakes on bikes that are not likely to see much mud? I can kind of understand the need on a commuter, rain bike, or CX racer, but that isn't what the OP is...

    Please clarify: are you wanting to put brake levers on the end of an aero base-bar (typical TT setup), or are you wanting to put them on the end of the aero extensions?

    If it's the latter, please...
