    After owning my 56 cm Domane for almost a year now, I thought I'd definitively "answer my own question" ;)

    I haven't had any fitment issues going with my 56 cm frame instead of a 58 cm. I've had...

    Yup... that's what I did. My Domane 5.2 is a dedicated road machine... too pretty to booger-it-up with all sorts of accessories. I also have a Trek ION (pre-Crocket) that is my trail bike. Quite...

    I'm thinkin' ~someone~ should sell his Domane and buy a Boone 5... It comes stock with 700x32c tires, no clearance issues, and the IsoSpeed decoupler so you wouldn't miss the Domane much and can run...

    "Dookie" was the name of an album by a band named Green Day that was popular in the 90's. I have a tendency to use that word instead of saying "crap". So I'm guessing you're either much older or...
  6. Tail Light Solutions That Don't Look Like Dookie

    With the days getting shorter as Fall approaches, I've been looking for a new tail light for the bikes I bought this past year. However, my brain has this issue with pretty much every tail light...

    Excellent... advice from someone who's had both :D The rear quick-mount fender looks like it has a hole drill in the 'front', likely for mounting to the frame. Do you use that? Per my issue with...
  9. Need Advice on Fenders for My Trek ION CX

    I'm finally starting to see signs of spring here in Wisconsin which means a few months of soggy roads and trails. As much as I hate the look of fenders, I hate having a roost up my back even more...

    Bikenashbar.com is having 60% off all their Easton Vuelta wheels. Looks like they're mostly 8/9/10 speed wheelsets, but there's a lot to choose from and the prices are pretty decent:

    According to web sites like this one, it looks to me like Thule thinks that if they slap their logo on something, that means it's worth 2x as much? I always thought Thule was over-priced (I have...

    Yeah... shipping was a bummer... almost $30. (I'm not sure if that's $15x2 because I ordered two or just $30). I looked for free shipping promo codes but didn't find any.

    Yeah, I can't see any difference between the Thule and Nashbar rack, other than the "Thule" sticker is missing. I just ordered two of the Nashbar racks, so I guess we shall see if they're any good!...

    Once.

    I recently started using chamois crème, so now I definitely have a need to wash my shorts after every ride.

    Is it possible that a new bike might make a person *faster* if it leaves you feeling less fatigued? "Endurance" bikes, like the Trek Domane and Specialized Roubaix, are relatively new to the cycling...

    Assuming the two bikes aren't radically different in weight, then "speed" is likely going to be more dependent on your abilities than the bike's. ;) Neither bike looks like an aero time-trial bike,...

    LOL! I live in Wisconsin, where beer seems to flow out of water fountains. I don't drink, so that might help explain why I'm 6'1" tall, 165 lbs., and very little body fat at nearly 40 years of age....
