    I haven't had to touch the bearings on mine despite 12,000+ miles, which includes a fair number of rain rides. They don't seem loose and they spin as freely as when new, so I'm not too concerned....

    I should also note that Nashbar is currently having a 21% off any single item sale (until tomorrow, I think). You could pick up a pair of Corsa SLRs for just under $200. A sub-1500 gram wheelset for...

    I've been running a pair for a few years now, I've got about 12,000 miles on mine without needing a single truing or repair, although the freehub body had to be replaced (part was $50 from Vuelta)...

    Cannondale and BH, because the two best shops here are big dealers for each. I have 2 Treks (Shameful, I know), and a lot of guys I race with use Felts as well, not so many Specialized bikes...

    If I ever got carbon rims, they'd be the low profile type like dura ace c24s. They're light, very stiff, and don't have any of the crosswind wobble of deep wheels. For me, they're perfect. That said,...

    "The 33"-Road Bike Racing

    The racer's forum. The links are a little wonky and the URL changed at some point in the last year so it's hard to find.

    Forget the receipts. If this story is in fact true, the bike must be stolen because you don't sell that level of bike for that price. Anyone that has that much money invested in upgrades would have a...

    Gorgeous frame, but those wheels (while surely fast) just don't look good on it. Same for the saddle/stem. Ideally you'd throw on some open pro rims with Record hubs, a smaller saddle like a Toupe,...

    My only contribution to this thread is to post in the hopeful expectation that we can all stop using hashtags on this forum. The joy of using an internet forum vs. twitter or whatever is that we can...

    +1 to adjusting fit. I used to get hand/wrist pain when I started riding a lot and fussed over gloves/gel pads under the bar tape. Those things helped but ultimately just getting a bike that fit and...

    That PM is not the prettiest thing in the world. Everything else is awesome. How about black hollogram cranks with stages/vector PM? Best of both worlds.

    Drafting hurts your average speed. On the other hand, what helps it is braking hard to a dead stop, recovering for a few minutes, and then sprinting up to as high a speed as you can hold for a mile...

    You're probably slow. What do you even average, like 16.8?

    That's frustrating. The last part of a bike that I'd worry about compatibility on is the saddle. Too bad aero bikes have these brand-specific shaped seatposts, it would be such a simple matter to...

    The problem with this and previous threads on average speed's usefulness as a comparative metric is that the threads haven't reached 10 pages yet. Just like averaging 20mph on a ride is the holy...

    You need 2 magnets. One goes on the non-drive side crank, one goes on a rear wheel spoke. They don't need to come with the computer to work, any normal wheel/crank magnets will read on the sensor. I...

    A duotrap speed/cadence sensor. I have one on my Madone. It's ANT+ wireless so it'll work with any computer or phone that receives that type of signal. Nifty, if you can find a good deal on the...

    Exactly. You didn't know that the yellow jersey for the TdF is awarded to the guy with the highest average speed for the distance? Average speed is everything.

    In the ~16,400 miles I've logged in the last few years on my phone's GPS cycling app, it says my average speed over that time was 18.45 mph. If you take that number, add 3, and then divide by 0,...

    So why did Nibali and Contador use the Tarmac to win their grand tours this year rather than the Venge? These "in a vacuum" calculations obviously don't tell the full story. Plus, for the OP, would...
