    Noise in BB area

    Have you checked out the rear hub? I had a noise like that, and it turned out to be a rear hub with a sticky pawl, so that it didn't always engage right away.

    Can't pump with my Topeak floor pump

    I've had the exact same problem with my Joe Blow Pro, which I assume uses the same pump head. I called Topeak about it, and they basically said that the pump was primarily designed for Presta valves, but that loosening the knurled ring on the outside of the pump head might help.

    G P S?

    I've got two friends with the 60CS who like it a lot.

    G P S?

    The speed seems to track my regular cycle computer very closely, the only issue I can think of is that if you're under heavy tree cover, or up against steep hills, you may lose signal.

    G P S?

    I've been using a Garmin Geko for some time, works quite nicely both for tracking where I've been and as a cycle computer. It gives me real max speeds, which my cycle computer doesn't seem to do (it only samples every 20 seconds or so, quite silly). There are several packages such as Delorme...

    Training & Ciclosport cm436m, any thoughts

    It's better, but still during rides I'll often need to wiggle the connector until it registers again.

    Training & Ciclosport cm436m, any thoughts

    I have the exact same problem with the cadence unit. I tried poking the contacts with a small screwdriver, best I could think of.

    Training & Ciclosport cm436m, any thoughts

    I've used one since April '03, and had a lot of fun with it. I'm sort of the official chronicler of my cycling group, as I post the web pages the Cico software generates up on the web. Unfortunately, my CM436M just died this weekend of a stuck button, so I'm not so up on it as I was...

    Koobi Enduro vs. Terry Fly

    Yes, I tried the Enduro, had a *very* rough time, then tried a Fly, found it a little too narrow, then decided to give the Enduro one last ride before sending it back in disgust...and found to my surprise that I didn't notice it at all. And I haven't had any problem at all with it in the...

    LOOK 396 or SPD-SL Ultegra?

    Even with the tension at minimum, they take more force to get out than my old SPDs did, but now that I'm used to them, that isn't really a problem. Just took some time to acclimate, now I really like the solid platform.

    LOOK 396 or SPD-SL Ultegra?

    I found them harder to get out of than my old SPDs, which had the tension at minimum, but after several weeks of use I have no problem with them at all. The cleats will fit fine on any shoe that fits Look cleats, same bolt pattern.

    Saddle recommendations

    I've had a Koobi Enduro for a few months now, and it's held up well on four hour rides.

    Koobi Enduro vs. Terry Fly

    Has anyone tried both of these and have a preference? I think I'm about to order a Koobi Enduro, to replace a Terry Liberator that was nice on my mountain bike, but just a little too wide for the road bike (also my mountain bike has no seat now...) and I've kind of narrowed it down to these two...

    Need Reviews on Ciclosport HAC4

    While it's not exactly the same, I recently got a Ciclosport CM436M, which is very similar to the HAC4 except for the heart rate function. The software is indeed very weird, UI-wise, but once you get used to it you find it's pretty full featured. The database function lets you do all kind of...
