Here it is, my much maligned and hated upon Denali. Its not quite complete because I'm upgrading the calipers. I don't have a pair of cable cutters that won't ruin the cable. ...

A hole in my head

Pants for commuting

I'll be 63 this week. I've loved bikes since I was a kid but I've never been on a group ride, toured, raced or anything like that. I got my own office a couple years ago and guess where my road...

Raise bars on Trek Marlin 6

I need to raise my bars a little on my ride. The bike has hydraulic brakes so I can't raise it very much. Maybe an itch or so. Is it best to get a new stem with a taller angle and less length or...

Low cost cycling shoes

I've looked at some internet articles about alternatives to cycling shoes. My riding is almost all city with some easy trails and unpaved roads thrown in. There is also the occasional dog sprint. ...

I have approx. a half inch or so with the 35s installed. It looks out of proportion to me. There was enough clearance for the brakes. The narrowest place was where a rear fender would attach. It...
