    Prologo Scratch Pro T2.0 $85 shipped anywhere in the USA

    I have a Prologo Scratch Pro T2.0 that is a takeoff from my new 2012 Cannondale. It has not been used and is in perfect condition. It is 134mm wide. I am looking for $85 shipped anywhere in the continental US. Cannondale lists this as a Prologo Scratch Pro T 2.0 and it is labelled on...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    Michelin Pro Race 3 in Ivory - Mounted and ridden once for 20 miles. Too ugly on my wheels

    I bought these tires and they arrived 2 days ago. Apparently I have really bad taste and the ivory looks really really ugly on my blue rims. I've ridden them 20 miles and have a new set of Pro race 3's coming on Saturday (2 days from now). Once I get them in I'm going to remove the...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    The 308 I'm referring to is my LR-308 (The AR10 variant). With a 24" heavy stainless barrel, 6-24x front focal plane scope, bipod and magpul PRS stock it's quite the lead weight. Nice 92FS. I had considered competing with one of those. The reciprocating mass on the slide is so low = less...

    Perineum-friendly bike seat

    Everyone's anatomy is different so it's difficult to recommend a saddle based on your own comfort. I have been reading up on saddle fitment and came across the concept of finding the correct width seat based on your "sit bones". If your saddle is not the correct width then your bones will...

    That has to be uncomfortable. I can just imagine the bolt catch digging into my back. A 308? My 308 weighs more than my entire bike. It looks like this guy was doing some sort of biathlon? He's got no spare magazines. He's also got a very interesting handguard going on...

    Supersix 105 or Supersix EVO Red

    I'm trying to figure out whether I should spend big money (at least it is for me) on the EVO or stay somewhat in a more reasonable range with the Supersix 105. I don't race (at least not yet). I ride recreationally when the weather is nice. I generally ride with a group of people who are...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    Do not use the shirt holsters. They are designed for the torso being upright. While cycling you're going to be leaning forward quite a bit while moving your legs which will cause a natural lifting of the gun up and out of the holster pocket. My Kel Tec P3AT is wonderful for biking. Center...

    I had a Kahr MK9 at one point but found it was too heavy (It's the stainless version of the PM9). I couldn't get it to fit well into my jersey. The triangular pouch is a good idea. I'd just be weary of it falling out during bumpy roads that might cause zippers to open. Happy Thanksgiving

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    I appreciate your viewpoint but there are quite a few people that don't see it the same way. Those few have voiced their opinion that I and others are seemingly crazy so I feel there is a need to rebut. I am familiar with statistics on both sides of the argument, but as I mentioned before...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    It is out of context, was never meant to be a controlled study, and is not to be meant as a data point. It's an anecdote and nothing more. Explain?

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    I have been quite busy with work lately. Missed a bunch of posts. My neighborhood is not bad. In fact it's one of the top rated places to live in the country. There hasn't been a murder in probably over 20 years and before that maybe even longer. It also doesn't change the fact that bad...

    Strange creaking/clicking sound

    Recently a creaking/clicking sound has been coming from I think my bottom bracket area. It only occurs when I am putting a good amount of downwards pressure on my pedals and I think only when pushing with my right food. Is this a bottom bracket issue? Loose? Worn out? It's a quick...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    And just to throw some things into the fire. We haven't even talked about the effectiveness of so called "gun control". Here's a funny story that brings a smile to my face every time I tell it. I have a college buddy who lives in NYC. She hates guns and thinks they are evil. One...
