    bike box

    Funny you post this now as I'm moving to Paris on Saturday and had been mulling over my choices this winter. I settled on the Serfas Bike Armor case. It is sturdy, wheeled, and very roomy (I fit my bike, wheels, all my tools, and cycling cliothes and shoes). It was around $350 and meets all...

    Campag/Shimano/FSA - Will this work ?

    I've been using a Campy Record carbon front derailleur with my Shimano shifters for a long time with no problems. The trim function works just fine. Anyone who tells you otherwise really has no idea what they're talking about. Like you I needed a 34.9 clamp size and didn't like the cobbled...

    The ABSOLUTE lowest profile helmet

    I agree, my Atmos is VERY low-profile, but man is it wide! I mean really goofy-wide. It'll take you a little while to get used to the look, but the helmet really is great. Even on hot days it is a pleasure to wear.

    Scott CR1 Pro

    1. The original poster was asking for opinions, and I gave mine. Go away. 2. We weren't talking about body weight, I was talking about bike weight. The closer you can get to the UCI min (or well under if you're not racing), the better. What, do you reccomend I lose 15lbs of body weight and...

    Scott CR1 Pro

    Yeah, it's not even a contest. The Scott is in a different category than your other choices, and if you can get it for the same amount of coin it's a no-brainer. Get the Scott, you'll save at least 200g on the frameset and get better customer service. Go to www.weightweenies.starbike.com for...

    How to cut carbon steer tube cleanly

    Use 32tpi for sure. You don't want to even risk splintering.

    How come I never see a cyclist with listening to music with an mp3 player?

    Gee whiz you got me. So you're telling me that I'd be better off getting t-boned by a car at 25mph on my bike than on your motorcycle? Or hit anywhere else for that matter - front, back, etc. So by your self-described LOGIC, a pedestrian would stand a better chance against that same car than a...

    How come I never see a cyclist with listening to music with an mp3 player?

    I don't know, you tell me. I'm not the one who decided to fall off my motorcycle at 100+ mph. Brainiac.

    100+ mph on anything and you're playing with fire no matter how "good" or "aware" you are. Sorry to hear about your accident, but back to the topic - you'd be infinitely better off on a motorcycle in a 25mph crash with a car than on your bicycle. Your comparison was completely irrelevant...

    I'm hoping we didn't just lose a member

    Wow. I feel sick. This is just so awful, I am very very sorry to hear of this terrible news Kimberlee. Boudreaux was such a valued member of this forum and I can tell you that I really looked forward to reading his remarks and various musings. I was actually just flaming away on another...

    How come I never see a cyclist with listening to music with an mp3 player?

    Your motorcycle provides an extra 600lb "cushion" for you in the case of a crash versus the 15lbs for a road bike. It's simply not smart to do on a bike. How many times do you warn someone with "on your left" before passing (maybe you brainiacs don't)? I can't count the number of times people...

    How come I never see a cyclist with listening to music with an mp3 player?

    You guys are retarded. I swear this forum is full of the bottom of the barrel in the gene pool sweepstakes sometimes, which is why I am rarely on it. Idiot questions like this, and "does cycling make you taller" seem to be the norm more often than not unfortunately. It's ILLEGAL for a reason...

    Is cycling a sport that can help you grow taller?

    Are you retarded? You're the same person that wants to listen to MP3s in traffic. Please do and cleanse the gene pool for us.
