    Our will let you try it on for size and many of the manufactures have a comfort guarantee as
    well. So, if you are not happy with the saddle, you can usually return it for a full refund.
    Also, remember...

    Yup, mirrors and pace lines don't really mix. I had a friend with a mirror get hit, so a mirror
    won't stop that either, it just lets you see it coming.

    Glad to hear you are OK! That had to have been pretty scary and total crap that nobody went to
    stop that damn truck. I'm starting to think that carrying a camera all the time is becoming
    mandatory sad...

    Tools depend on the bike it self. You can find them at your local bike shop depending on what
    you are trying to do. As for the rest, getting them as close to factory condition is the best

    I have a 5s in a Lifeproof case that I ride with all the time. Why worry? Just go ride and put
    it in your pocket.

    Just be aware that if you are going to buy a bike on CL, especially carbon, you go get it
    checked out by a reputable bike shop before you dump money into it. You never know what you
    will get and I hav...

    Oops. DaFlake, I ASSumed you were you riding with the group you wrote about. I'd probably get
    dropped by that group and not sufficiently challenged on the easier ride. Still might come up
    there to che...

    Yeah, you'd probably be faster than me even if we switched bikes. I got a little angry at the
    suggestion that I'd need a $2000 bike to join fast group rides with pacelines but perhaps
    you're right. Ac...

    I also taco'd the front Mustang on the Trek XCaliber I used to have. Not a fan of those
    wheels.That is because they are fairly cheap wheels. They do that to keep the cost point on the
    bike down. Trek ...

    The "serious" cyclist who's logged less than 2000 miles this year throwing stones at the

    ride because a ...
