Have to get in here I guess. On Sunday rode a total of 90 miles on a pretty hilly NJ route. 80 of those with my favorite cyclist :). Got my first road bike in March so I'm psyched to have covered the...

I'm onto my second Jamis. I had a fairly light Jamis hybrid as a kind of return to cycling starter bike about five years ago, traded that in for a first fixie, and then got encouraged to road cycling...

I appreciate the answer FB, and do not feel the slightest bit of "I told you so" in that. I looked up stuff here about what kind of bike to get, what to pay and where when I went for the Jamis, but...

Did I just get suckered?

Have a slight feeling of being suckered. Bought a used Jamis Xenith Comp off of craigslist a couple of months ago and overall like the ride. Had trouble shifting to the larger chainring though, even...

I think this might be the one instance in the world of cycling where women get better treatment. I guess there are not enough women riders out there, but I've been told before that in fact I won't...

Dinner, for the one who put the new clipless pedals and seat onto the new-to-me road bike. First time riding on those kind of pedals and I already had my mandatory idiot fall :). I felt inducted into...

Thank you, that gets to the heart of it, as I have some feel for the types of components but do need some help there. Longer legs does describe me, but my hands are relatively large so I'll have no...

Vixtor, you are correct, it is drastic, but the old one was starting to feel like riding stationary. I looked at the chart and realized that it"s 81GI which seems like a lot. But then again, Brooklyn...

I just went from a 42/17 to a 48/16 and it is great. Hills are a bit hard now, as they should be, but downhill I feel I can resist more efficiently.

Thanks guys, good to know. I rode it today for about an hour and the chain was making noise a couple of times. I used to have an IRO Heidi, which was way too small for me at about 5'5 and I have to...

I'm new to this, have only ridden fixed for a year, and every time I think I learn something, I find out that I know nothing. This guy at Continuum Cycles in the East Village built it, and I guess I...
