I'm selling a 2011 Cervelo complete (parts listed below) for $2,300 or best offer. I will only sell within the continental United States. I've tracked this twice and ridden ...

@yourframeandfocus: "So, just don't go implying things out on people when you don't even know them." Exactly, maybe this could apply to your post 5 posts up. "...it take one...

@yourframeandfocus: typically no, but when you consider that 3,000 feet done within 25 miles continuously up and downhill with grades of more than 15%, I'd think you would recon...

Apparently, most of the fixie kids have never climbed more than 3,000 vertical feet in a day's worth of riding.

A good place to start is to measure your sit bones and compare that measurement to the the width of various seats/ Your sit bones should sit (pun intended) well inside the edge ...

Actually, grease is used when mounting non-steel cups in a steel frame to prevent chemical bonding that occurs over time. For aluminum frames, it is recommended to use Loc-tite.

What's the geometries for those frames? I would think that there would be differences in head tube angle, reach, and so on between those 3. That's what most track racers (as wel...

Anal. Some people just notice changes more than others. Just a fact of life. I'd think you would notice the change of 4 gear inches on longer (meaning: more than a couple c...

Slam Wheel or not

Unless you're you're doing CAT 3 or higher TT events, you're not gonna notice anything aside from a slightly tighter turning radius—but a nice tucked wheel is fun too.

@OP: it is the angle your wrists are at when gripping your bars. If you can set your bar/riding position such that your wrists are straight, you'll find less stress on your w...

My Bullbars Ache my hands whist riding? why?
February 19, 2013 06:23 PM in General Discussion

I'm not sure anyone's really answered your question. If I understand you correctly, you're asking what the tooth difference can be between two cogs such that there isn't a major...

The typical amount of slack for a track chain is such that with minimal effort the chain should be able to move up or down from its default state by 1/2 inch. Any more has t...

@MegaDavidHa: "Its suppose to slightly reduce the feel of bumpy roads but thats bullsh*t, IMO." It seems that the majority of riders who do use carbon to reduce the effects of h...

If I were in your shoes, I would be asking myself: out of all the forks out there, which has the proper rake for my frame and fulfills what I need in a fork for what kind of rid...

@caesaradyatma The reason why a shorter spindle length won't work: - cups may not be able to thread onto the BB properly - crank arms may touch the BB shell - chainline will...

@iRideFixed, a frame alone doesn't really help anything—and not knowing what kind of track events you're interested in doing or what your measurements are helps less. Differe...

If you want to categorize yourself, fine. I'll focus on riding instead of trivial/trite generalizations.

Just like riding fixed—you get used to it. Probably safer in an accident than straps—actually, definitely safer.
