  1. Is this feasible, or maybe just a dumb idea?

    I have an old Trek 720 Multitrack from 1990 or so. It's basically a steel mixte. It was off the road and on a trainer for a few years. Last year I took it to the LBS and he put some new, but basic,...
  2. I'm sure I'll give the Dolce another season...

    I'm sure I'll give the Dolce another season before I buy yet another road bike. I need to get an all-around street bike since my Specialized Sirrus was stolen over the summer. I will most likely have...
  3. I just want to wish you luck - I'm thinking of...

    I just want to wish you luck - I'm thinking of the same. There's a shop near me that has the 2014 Ruby Sport in my size, greatly discounted. Although there are other colors I prefer on the bike, I...

    Not a problem - I didn't take any offense. What he meant was given my proportions, I could fit a men's bike, if there was one small enough.

    Anyway, I'm very comfortable in the cockpit. My lower...

    I think so. I started to suspect it when one of the fitters said, "Wow, you have short femurs!" ;) But I don't think it's dramatic. My KOP alignment is good now. No knee problems. I just find the...

    I'm not sure if the part I bolded was directed at me, but I have changed out the stems and the handlebars on two of my bikes already this summer. And I don't "freak out". As a matter of fact, I...

    I was afraid to open the link, thinking I might come across my cousin. It's not him - I don't think he wears an orange tutu ;) Thanks for sharing.
  8. Thank you for typing out most of my experiences!...

    Thank you for typing out most of my experiences! I'm 5'0", long torso, short limbs. I bought a Specialized Dolce last year that fits reasonably well. But this year I tried a petite Felt that seemed...

    My condolences, Crankin.

    My condolences, Crankin.

    I don't think we have sheep around here, but I admit I've "laaaaaaambed" when I do see them.
    I'm an introvert. It's sometimes easier to talk to animals than humans ;)

    I don't usually scream when I see a cow. I tend say, "hi cows!" and moo at them :D

    I already test rode the Coda. The dealer is about 2 hours away and I e-mailed him to say I'll be in town next month, and I want a Coda. Then I started wondering about the Allegro... I should stick...

    Makes perfect sense. The Terry bike I mentioned in my PM to you came with a straight bar. I had to change it out for something with a "sweep". The straight bar just had me in an awkward and...

    Jamis Coda and Allegro

    Are these bikes the same, just one in steel and one in aluminum? The geometries look the same, and aside from the component combinations, I'm just wondering what other differences there may be, and...

    I was imagining it with blue bar tape. Unfortunately, the white is no longer available. The 2015 is mint green.

    I'm glad you mentioned the looks. I've been trying to get beyond that. But I can't...

    I'm 5'0", wear a long bathing suit, and have a short inseam. None of the local shops sell Specialized anymore. The man who sold me the Dolce a couple of years ago had all good things to say about it....

    Yes, I am one of those ;) I have the 48 cm Dolce now and while the "lower body" fits well (standover, pedal alignment), I'm too stretched out. I was able to ride a 44 cm a few weeks ago and...
  18. Why would they do this? The Dolce geometry has changed.

    I've been thinking about (maybe) getting a new Specialized Dolce, so yesterday I visited the Specialized site and was happy to see the 2015 models are posted. New colors, graphics ... and geometry....

    Well then you came to the wrong place ;)

    Good luck with the ride tonight!

    Catrin,
    A few people can really ruin it for everyone. I'm glad you were on your guard to protect yourself, your home, and, of course, your bike.
  22. Starting over, selling my two 48 cm road bikes

    It's been a tough decision, but when I test rode a 44 cm, my suspicions were confirmed that I bought the wrong size. And I'm not sure I want drop bars.
    So...
    Before I post these on Craigslist, I...

    The box says USA 5, but I think that might be on the small side. I'm a 7, 7 1/2 and can get into them. They're just a little short. I wonder if it's unisex sizing, making that a men's 5?

    If anyone is at all interested, please make an offer. They're just sitting here in the box.
