I had a bike crash a few weeks ago on my road bike, and the Ultrega shifting caps cracked and broke off...I ordered 2 new ones for $6 a piece from the bike shop.

Do any mtbr's not use cages or clips?

I'm new to mtnb and I have cages on my bike...which are fine, but on steeper climbs, it's kinda hard to get it going effortlessly....and I'm NOT experienced enough for mtb with clipless pedals....

Thank you so much for your response Eric - that makes the most sense. I am relatively new, so I probably was stiff going downhill as opposed to loose.

Dammit!

I was cruising down Lookout Mountain at about 25 - 30 mph and totally wiped out. It all happened pretty fast, so I'm not sure exactly what went wrong. It was a little curvy, so I'm not...

I didn't know brands made a difference .It's a Shimano Ultrega components.

I'm sorry, I don't know what ratios I have on there now. :-( I know they put on one with 2 more teeth on the back cassette which was noticeably larger than the cassette it came with.

What the eff!?!?!? Double vs triple vs compact

I just bought a new bike last week, and I didn't really pay attention to the front crank. It's a double, and I assumed it was a compact since all the ones I had been test riding where. My...

The seat is the one place where I don't care about added weight. Those stiff thin seats are killer for long rides, so I just put in a fat ass special and ride in comfort. Nothing beats those big soft...

I think the orange looks pretty sweet personally. It's not a Dukes of Hazzard orange...but an electric Fast and Furious orange. Better than red any day for me.
