    Putting together a coherent sentence or two would reduce the "male cow dung".

    My $0.02 is that if you got the wheel in true to good tolerances once, it will be easy to do it again after you adjust tension equally. If tension is low, bump everything by the same amount, then...

    Just based on intuition, I doubt you could bend/dent the tube with just the weight of your thigh, but if your positioning is such that you're putting all or most of your total body weight on it, then...

    A higher likelihood of minor illness while traveling (or shortly thereafter if the length of travel is less than the typical incubation period) is more/less accepted, both due to the extra stress and...

    The big factor which seems to make Seattle so rainy is that the 39" or so of rain each year is not very evenly distributed throughout the year like most eastern cities. Half the rain falls in one...

    Not really. When you're in motion, the spinning wheels have a tremendous gyroscopic stabilizing force that is not present in your "at rest" test. You can certainly crash no-handed, but I don't...

    A typical 75-mile day for a bicycle tourist and doing double-metic centuries aren't really comparable. Yes, you can have a 5K calorie day if you work hard enough, but most riders aren't remotely fit...

    I find that if I use Myfitnesspal.com and plug in 12-14 mph for my rides (even though I typically ride faster), that I get reasonable correlation between body weight changes and exercise. 1100...

    Who says so? This is obfuscation of the discussion to begin with, but can you find a state driver's code that says this? I've lived in about ten states and the law in all of them is simply that you...

    I'm with the others - listen to your doctor and stop trying to second-guess him/her so much. It is customary, especially when a client expresses sensitivity to costs, to take a progressive approach...

    Other than cost, I don't see how you could go wrong with that Seven. They know what they're doing.

    Nothing inherently wrong with "mixing", but this is pretty esoteric construction for a one-off frame. Are titanium lugs readily available? You (or your framebuilder) would certainly want to be...

    Another vote for KMC, as I think you get a little more chain for your money than Shimano and SRAM, but by the same token, you can't really buy a bad chain these days.

    I don't know for sure on this 620, but on my Trek 400s it was a super-easy conversion from six- to seven-speed just involving adding a washer or two to the axle to re-space the dropouts to about...

    Queue up the endless debates about bar wrapping convention.... I wish I hadn't brought it up. My only point was that you do a cleaner exit of bar-con housings from under the tape going top > bottom....

    Some folks certainly do it but the cable runs are longer and the bends more acute which may impact shifting quality. Personally, I've never minded standard routing but I don't use a handlebar bag. ...

    As others have said, I doubt frame "slope" (I assume you mean the slope of the top tube) has much, if anything, to do with relative comfort. The two bikes you're comparing are so different, it is...

    I've come around to using Serfas slotted models for all my bikes and love them. Don't know if they're the "most affordable", but with saddles, when I find something really comfortable, I don't pay a...

    My experience is that the Elite fabric in Shower Pass gear is not as good as GoreTex. It keeps the rain out, but doesn't breath as well to let body moisture escape.

    I know of no reason why being above or below average weight would affect this decision. Beyond this, this thread will quickly devolve to the usual bickering between anti-disc and pro-disc factions....

    I agree with both the previous posters. At some effort and expense, you can certainly update your old Trek to be more modern, but it is not cost effective. Unless you have some special attachment...
