    Campy Centaur

    I got the same bike with a double crank. Recently added the new 2006 Centaur Alloy Compact Crank (only $159) because I live in the mountains and I needed a few more climbing gears. What a SWEET bike. The Centaur gear is smooth and quiet. Its such a sweet ride, it must makes me wanna ride more.

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

    Do any of you carry bathtubs or golf tees when you ride. I know that where I live you can carry a bathtub without a permit, but I"m not sure about golf tees.

    Scott CR1 Pro v. Orbea Onix?

    I went with the 56 and got "fitted' on it at my LBS. Turns our the bike fit damn near perfectly by simply raising the seat up a bit. I didn't need to move the seat back or get a longer stem. As I ride more and my hips and back loosen up a bit, I might want in bit more reach, in which case...

    Scott CR1 Pro v. Orbea Onix?

    I got the Scott. Its an amazing bike. I'm sure the Orbea is a great bike, too. But every ride on the Scott confirms that I made the right decision for me.

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

    According to the NGTA (National Golf Tee Association - a subsidiary of the NRA), golf tees don't kill people; people (banging them into another person's temple) do. In the immortal words of Charlton Heston, "if you outlaw golf tees, only outlaws will have golf tees," and "you'll get my golf tee...

    Wasn't Collateral Damage a Steven Segal or Bruce Willis movie? If so, I wouldn't vote in favor of it.

    If we outlaw bathtubs, only outlaws will have bathtubs.

    You really are clueless. You never did cite the specific cases and articles supporting your position. Obviously, you never will. And now you have resorted to "supporting" your argument with hearsay regarding what one of the alleged USDOJ authors has said about this thread. Good thing you...

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

    My gut reaction is to agree with you. But being an American (and proud to have Scotish roots dating back to the 1400s), I want to make it clear that America is NOT so dangerous that you have to carry a gun cycling. There is just a group of people whose motto is "you'll take my gun from me when...

    If anyone disagrees with you, they aren't qualified to express an opinion on this issue. If we say that no one is as smart as you, that no one is as educated as you, and that only your opinion is correct (even though we don't believe it), will you stop wasting space on the forum trying to...
