    Thanks! The reason I ask is that I appear to be putting too much weight on my saddle, causing the rails to bend. (While no delicate flower, I'm well under the weight limit for the saddle; the...

    Avid Rim Wrangler 2s on Canti Brakes?

    I can't take the squealing from my kool stop "Cross Pads" any more. No matter what I do, they won't shut up. I need an alternative (threaded post-style) with good stopping power.

    That's a really good call, thanks. Do you happen to know if a 9 speed hub would be compatible with 10 spd cassette? Frankly, I'd rather just have stuck with my 9 spd drivetrain, but it's getting...

    Replacing/Upgrading from Tiagra 9 Spd

    Thinking of going SRAM Rival. Anyone have any thoughts on the 11 vs 10 speed systems? Obviously the 10 speed is cheaper, so that's a plus right there. Is the added cost of the 11 balanced out by...

    I'm trying for the full hundred, but riding with my dad, so he might not be feeling it. I'm not sure if registration's closed now, but you might still be able to sign up. I did 55 miles of it last...

    I knew you have to pay like $25 for a year's membership. Not so sure about the site itself.

    Nope, other end of the A: Inwood.
