    Litespeed Vela

    I purchased a 2003 Vela (brand new) for my wife and she loves it. She only uses it for road riding so I do not know how it would handle with some clip on aerobars. If she already has a road bike and is looking to do more tri's then maybe looking at a entry level tri specific bike would be of...

    gravel + road bike?

    Get a cyclecross bike. They are the best for those types of trails and you can get a nice one for under $1000. You get to keep the same riding position as the road you have so you can get a very similar workout in.

    Creaking with a Trek 5200

    Creaking with a Trek 5200

    I have a 2002 Trek 5200 and have had off and on problems with creaking comming from the bottom bracket. I grease the drivetrain and it stops for 200 miles or so then it comes back. Do Carbon frames just creak? I had an aluminum Cervelo and never had any creaking. Thanks to anyone who can help.
