    I am getting dangerously close to contributing something useful here, but I should point out that sharing the lane side-by-side between cyclists and drivers through a roundabout is extremely...

    The one thing I haven't seen (and the reason I have roof racks) is for cars that live in particularly dense street parking. In a suburban area I'd have a hitch rack but my bumpers have to live up to...

    I'm talking about the novice to average rider though dragging their brakes down a mountain instead of hard on the brakes before a turn or an obstacle. You can and will fade disc brakes doing that....

    I don't see the point. Discs are heavier, less aero, more expensive, more complex, and just as likely to cook the brakes on a downhill as rim brakes (and slower to come back if you do cook them). As...

    Have you ever tried to mount it under a rim brake? I've wanted to try these for Rough Roubaix, etc, and based on the reviews I'm willing to chance that yours was a bad apple, but I don't know that...
