Can anybody tell me if it is worth my time to road bike in Cancun? Keep in my mind I will also be with my in-laws, so going on...

    Indoor rollers vs. trainer

    Hello all! The last couple of winters I have used a indoor stationary recumbent style exercise machine to replace cycling. I'm kind of sick of it. This coming winter I was thinking of buying rollers or a trainer. What do all of you prefer for indoor cycling using your own bike? I am kind of...

    Double Posts

    This is just a simple forum observation. Looking through the different topics I noticed there are a few duplicate topic titles. I know this has happened to me. I think I've gotten an error from the forum when posting a new thread, so I post it again, only to find out the first post worked...

    I bought this bike from a co-worker recently. I bought it with the intention of building my first fixed gear road bike. I purchased a Weinnman 27 inch wheel from Harris Cyclery along with a 14 tooth track cog and lock ring. The rear hub is Origin 8. I reused the stock crank. I just took...

    1978 Motobecane Grand Touring

    A co-worker has a nice Motobecane Grand Touring bike that he wants to sell. Everything works. All the parts are where they should be. I would need to replace the tires. It's gold in color. What would be a good starting point for a fair offer? What is max dollar value? As a side point...

    2003 Trek 5000

    I am looking to buy my first true road bike. In conversation with this older friend of my family I found out he has a buddy looking to sell his 2003 Trek 5000. He bought it, put less than 500 miles on it, and hung it in storage. It's been sitting there ever since. I have no idea what to...

    Origin 8 Uno

    I found a used Origin 8 Uno on Craigslist. I plan to check it out on Friday. The owner was asking $350. I offered $275. Does anybody know anything about this bike, and would it be a decent deal at $275 provided it's in good working order?

    Electric Commuter?

    I'm contemplating putting an electric kit on my Trek 4500 for commuting purposes. Here's an example of a website selling such kits:http://www.ampedbikes.com/ $475 for a complete SLA kit isn't bad. Maybe I would ride my bike more if it was electric. This little snipit I found on an...

    Trek 4500 Commuter

    Nice forums you have here. I'm glad I found my way over. I have a 2004 Trek 4500 that didn't see much trail use. So, I converted it to a single speed commuter. I put skinny road going tires on. I have an Origin 8 single speed kit in the rear, but I currently have the stock crank. The crank...
