    digitalepo.com is Strava doping afaik

    I guess what they mean is uploading rides that have a longer running time than in reality. It really wouldn't be that hard to game the system though.

    Fixed gear maintenance can definitely be hazardous. I always store mine driveside-in against a wall or whatever to minimize anyone in the family messing with it.

    If they like REI, I think they may carry the cheapest Cannondale Synapse which is roughly $1k.

    Pretty sure I have spent hundreds of dollars there previously. They bought out backcountry (and their affiliates) a few years ago I think? - so they carry a lot of inventory.

    I saw it (and signed up). I think they are going to have to change the rules. Do they realize how many miles are logged on Strava? Maybe credit towards a min. purchase but just straight credit seems...

    Makes too much sense!

    Another solution that came to mind to a commutified fixed gear is something with an internally geared hub. When you want it fixed, use your fixed gear wheel. Switch to...

    Sounds very sensible - I ran 58 GI for a few CX races, and had no more trouble than on gears (...mostly).

    I don't think it's practical either. FG/SS or SS/geared can work (I would just use a regular wheel with a spacer kit/cog on the freehub, and run the chain through the derailleur as the tensioner)....

    My "solution" (since I certainly don't have perfectly round chainrings) is to drop the chain tension a little.

    Ooops, I meant to say crank ARM based! It's just the Stages. Although to be honest I do want a crank based one - but I'll wait for when I get my road/gravel/cx do-it-all bike.

    Chains do stretch (especially at first), but if it seems inconsistent across the chain it could well be your chainring.

    I do think cadence on freewheel vs fixed is quite different. On a freewheel you are constantly putting in something to keep the pedals going (otherwise you'll coast). I'd ballpark it that you can do...

    As far as bike technology goes, I'd rather have disc brakes than 11 speed.

    For pure road racing I can see why people would prefer to stick to rim brakes. They're the status quo, riders are used to...
