    Orbea riders?

    Did a few upgrades today. New tires, seat, & pedals. Giving it to my wife and she is giving me her Scott CR1. This Orbea Arin is insanely light. Very comparable to the Scott CR1 Comp.

    Car Rack

    It's not cheap, but the 1up USA Quick Rack is the best I have ever had. Should be last a very long time. It only does up to 4 bikes though. You buy the first one for $299, then each extension is $199. After beating my bikes up I did it and now do not regret the investment. 1up USA Ultra Rack

    I would read the reviews on sites such as amazon and nashbar. I personally love my Knog N.E.R.D. 12 function. Easy to remove when needed and works and looks great. Comes in about 6 colors too. I was sold on Cateye wireless, but I have now bought two of these Knog NERDS. No cadence though...

    Good tire levers for 700 x 23 tires?

    I have a Crankbrothers speed lever and love it. On really tough tires I had to use a little soap, but overall it was very easy to use after the learning curve of 1 tire. I paid $7.50 USD ++ speedlever :: crankbrothers.com ++

    seat killing me nuts

    Lol! That is a pretty funny title to this thread! You can always try a seat like this if all else fails. That is what I did, although, it was my prostate area that was the problem.
