    I really like it. I busted my right wrist mountain biking 2 years ago, so by the end of really long rides (like centuries and beyond) I tend to lose a lot of hand strength for shifting my rear...

    This is precisely my experience on my Carbon road bike vs. my Ti CX bike with lightweight wheels and slick tires. There's still probably a 4# difference. It doesn't seem like much, but it's...

    I really didn't ride any others. I'd had a Cdale Synapse in the same size for a year and was desperate to switch from aluminum to carbon (LOTS of rough, chip-sealed roads around here). I also...

    I <3 my 48cm SuperSix! Definitely worth trying to find.

    I have, but I'm under the impression that they'd not be something that could simply be swapped on and off easily -- and I still use my road bike for paceline/group rides (which I do 2-3x/week). Even...

    I definitely have several places I can improve. Weight and figuring out how to make my ride position comfortably aero for the bulk of the bike leg (which is tough with drop bars and a bum right...

    As a runner I find this tendency seems much more common of the older crowd. So I wonder if target fixation becomes more of an issue as one ages, for some reason. Or the older folk in ginormous...

    And the more I read around, the more I keep seeing owners and reviewers raving about the comfort of the BMC TM02. Sounds like the positioning is especially adjustable.

    Oh, I'm definitely not expecting 3.5mph, but most people tell me that 2-3mph vs similar effort on a road bike is pretty expected. Frequently in these races I do (which are generally not big -- for...

    These are the wheels that come with all 3 bikes I'm considering. I think they may be the same wheels that were on my first road bike, too...which were really low-rent. I had a spoke bust while...

    Yeah, no real way to try one...our LBS doesn't really do much with TT bikes. They have a couple of BMC and Bianchi in stock, but too big for me. But we can get a killer deal, because we're...

    Which TT bike seems like the better buy?

    I've been doing sprint and olympic distance dus for several years...quite possibly my favorite way of combining my 2 sports. I can hold my own on the bike and it's definitely my stronger leg, but...

    I would agree with this. I wanted to like them...the ventilation and weight are amazing. But they don't fit my oblong head at all. I currently have a Lazer O2 and like it, but it's old, has random...

    One thing I learned with SMP saddles is that they have a rider's weight a bit further forward (and angled in) on the "sit bones" than most other saddles. I went through developing new sit bone...

    As someone who has had breast reduction (covered by insurance, since it was reconstructive, not cosmetic. Went from a DDD to a D), I have to agree. Had I not had my boobs downsized I never would...

    Low-fat/fat-free makes me really irritated (especially since it means adding thickeners to things to regain the consistency lost by removing fat). Hello, the 80s & 90s called, they want their...

    And women like me who prefer bib shorts! I'm not above dropping and going behind a shrub when out for a run, but on the bike it requires disrobing almost entirely.

    Yeah, I never thought about it, but my thru-axle Mudhoney was a good choice for this reason, among others.
