    Highly likely that this is just a crack in the clear coat. You can always have the shop you bought it at check it out. Where exactly is this anyway? That'd make a big difference in diagnosing...

    Negative on the Mavic's... the ratchet dug into my ankle. I had ridden them too far to return them, and it ended as a complete waste of $150. Grrr! I prefer Diadora Ergo's or Shimano; havn't tried...

    I won't be working on anyone's bikes at the clinic. This is instructional and Q&A only. The library cannot have multiple bicycles inside, and are making special accommodation for us as it is.

    If you are regularly breaking spokes, then the tensions are too low for the load and or riding style. I don't care what the LBS says. It's just the facts. The reason that spokes break is either...

    "the cost of dumping it is cheaper than the cost of donating it." That's the problem. Unless corporations somehow can recoup those costs, real organized donation flows will never occur.

    AHahahah! Too funny. I do get irked by some of the "commuter-cat-6-racers." It makes me laugh when they roll up on my wheel, then zing past as if to put an exclamation mark on how fast they can...

    This is where buying a cheap entry level cycling computer can help you with efficiency. Your cadence should never drop below 60 unless you are: 1. not working hard, 2. standing up on the pedals...

    He's completely harmless. I stopped one late night on my way home (it was a cold one) to see if he could use an extra layer. He said he was fine, but I gave him some sandwiches that were left over...

    Bike B is the most cushy and will track better at faster speeds... it has a deeper rake on the fork (more absorption of bumps) and a longer wheelbase, which means it'll track better, but will be a...

    Thanks Larry! I'm all set. I'll only need one stand since it'll be primarily demo with Q&A where I can hone into specific questions.

    It is a cool frame...but he's over selling it "just a tad" :cool: ... SL is in no way a "faster" frameset than SLX or TSX...

    If you find a small multi-tool with a 8mm adapter on the 6mm, all silver... that's mine.

    I have yet to meet "the pink one"... he's like the wizard from Oz... always out there, mysterious and wonderful, just pink rather than green in this case. ;)

    Don't curse, even if you feel like it's warranted... things may not be as they seem.

    Tonight, rather than channeling Dirt and fuzzy pink bunnies... I channeled the dark side. So, I guess this is a self-proclaimed missed connection.

    I had a guy scream the F-bomb at me because I'd...

    Another option is a sidecar. I loved our Chariot Sidecar... only on the used market though in the US. Here's the link to buy new, but I don't know how shipping would work.

    You are a beast of a Bunny... amazing the mileage and speed you can generate. My old boss did the death valley double on a fixie... I think that sounds like it's something you'd be into.
