    Lelani, what did you end up getting, and how are you liking it? My sister just got the Liv Suede and I'm tempted to get the Suede or the Flourish.

    Oak Leaf, I'm not sure if it was the door or the ground that did it--I don't remember the impact, which IMHO is a blessing. (I also haven't been able to figure out why I have a dent in the back of...

    Does anyone have a good resource for learning about bike goggle safety? Are there any safety standards goggles have to meet, like helmets do? I did some searching tonight and was amazed how little...

    Nor Ace Wheelworks, sigh. I had good service a couple of times but then both my housemate and I had noticeably patronizing service (different visits) so I don't go there anymore. I love Broadway...

    I went out for a 20-mile group ride tonight with the new bike (I say "group ride," but tonight it was just the ride leader and me). So far so good! My hands got tired of the position because I...

    New bike, first road bike!

    I wanted to share my excitement--I bought a new bike this week, my first road bike! (I also have a Trek 7100 hybrid which I use for commuting, a 1970s John Deere bike which I keep just because it's...

    Me too! :-)

    I was checking Craigslist this afternoon, in fact. There's nothing on there right now that I'm interested in, but I'll keep an eye on it off and on.

    I was glad to see this thread--I've been thinking lately that I'd like to do RAGBRAI someday too. I don't live in Iowa anymore, but I grew up there and so it was always the big cycling event every...

    I went to a new bike shop this evening and tried two women-specific road bikes. Big difference in mounting/dismounting--on the ones designed for women, it was much easier than on this one. I was...

    Catriona, I didn't know that about saddle vs. handlebar position, thanks! They did raise the handlebars as far as they could at the store, I'd have to buy a different stem to raise them any further....

    A pic as requested! The seat is not original, I added it last night to make sure that any discomfort was from the bike, not the seat. This one is a Selle Lookin; I've used Selle's Ergogel and...

    Catriona, thanks for giving those examples! That makes sense to me now, and sets my mind at rest.

    I noticed this morning there's one other thing I need to evaluate about this bike, and I don't...

    Thanks! The thing is, though, on my hybrid I can push hard enough that my legs feel tired before I feel out of breath at all. That's why it does seem to be something related to this bike and I...
  20. Help me decide whether to take this used roadbike?

    Hi, all! I'm relatively new to the forum--been lurking a while, but I haven't posted yet. I've been getting back into biking this spring after several years away. Since late March I've been doing...
