    You don't need an LBS... you just need the tools and know-how to do it yourself. Post in Bicycle Mechanics, they can help you.

    Wow. A bit on edge today? Perhaps if you explained more up front people wouldn't be so skeptical. The feedback is that very few people actually need a noseless saddle -- it's usually a fit issue. You...

    You're honestly overthinking it. Find something you like, buy it, and ride it into the ground. All the talk about geometry and bits and pieces is nice, but it doesn't ultimately matter what people on...

    The fact is you never want to skid your front wheel; if your front wheel loses traction, you're going to hit the deck. Thanks to the weight transfer that takes place when stopping, I'm not convinced...

    I have a Carradice Nelson Long Flap with the Bagman support.

    Pros: Keeps bag from swinging.

    Cons: I dunno. It costs money? No lugs?

    No. Is there a reason I shouldn't have the freehub replaced? It's worth the 10 or 20 bucks of labor to me, as I don't have the tools or the wherewithal to confront an explosion of springs and pawls....

    Anyone else have Aksium freehub trouble?

    Yesterday my massive guads (apparently) managed to break the freehub on my Mavic Aksiums with no more than 2,000 miles on them. I haven't taken it off yet to check the pawls, but the cassette just...
