    I know people who can (and do) get lost despite having GPS.

    I went for the new bike fitting last night, after looking at it next to the old Madone WSD and deciding I probably needed to switch it...

    Hi Ashleigh.

    The forum activity these days is less than it used to be, but some of us still like using it. Many others read it regularly but don't post much. And there is a wealth of knowledge...

    I put two bottle cages on along with the pedals while I was the bike shop parking lot. The only difficulty was opening the tube of Park Tools grease -- I didn't have...

    30 degrees colder today than my last two rides. We planned a 58 mile ride, a variation on the annual Gettysburg tour that my friend leads. The sun is still fairly strong so it was not bad with temps...

    Thanks!

    The new bike does not come with pedals, so that eliminates any difficulty in removing them.

    I did buy a pedal wrench to take the old pedals off my mountain bike. That was almost 2 years...

    Thanks for the input, NWG. It is very helpful. I think my 2:00 and your 11:00 might be the same thing. Basically I try to start with the pedal as close to the highest point (12:00) as possible,...

    Fat bikes might not be your preference, but put them next to the indoor trainer and they might look pretty good. Maybe once the weather really goes downhill the fat bikes will feel more fun to ride.

    I just cleaned the chain, and I think I know the cause of the weird noise. There are rough edges on numerous links, no doubt as a result of being jammed between the cassette and the spokes last...

    What if you want to change to different tires, but you have tubeless? Would you have to take the bike to the shop and have them do it?

    I found the numbers for the old Trek 2000 men's bike from 2003, on page 42 of this. No stack or reach numbers, but there is this:
    HTA: 73.0
    STA: 74.0
    ETT: 54.4

    The first ride with the new freehub was fine until I was more than 30 miles into it. This was typical of the mooing -- I would generally have at least 15-20 miles of quiet...

    Wow, you are right. I don't think Trek makes different frames for women anymore. They just change the color and put on a women's saddle. Even the handlebars are the same.
