Thanks. Yeah, I'd love to see Eddy Merckx celebrated, but we won't be there for the first stage. I'm sure I'll see him one of the stages. I'd love to be in the vicinity of him.

Going to France during the TDF. Any must-do things for cycling fans?

I will be visiting France this summer, and I will be seeing TDF stages in Nimes, Pont-du-Gard, and Paris.

Thanks. It is just the frameset. I've always ridden steel, but I wanted something with some newer parts, more gears, lighter wheels, etc. The stays were already 130mm so that helped. I actually may...

Confused again. Steel road bike from 90's. Modern headset options?

I have a frame and fork. I need a headset. If I buy a threadless headset, do I need a stem adapter? I thought I read somewhere that if the steerer tube was long enough, that was not necessary.

This may be simple, but I've confused myself looking online. People on here are quick to answer and very generous.
