    As said, it can be done, but it will be a little more painful to complete than riding a bike
    designed more for it. We had guys riding fat bikes last year, and one rode a unicycle. I would
    prefer using...

  • Posted in thread: Keep a cadence of 90? Why 90? on 01-30-2015 at 05:08 PM
    Here is a good article on it... in a cadence of 80 - 100 you will find a "sweet" spot. This is
    where you can maintain your speed but not overwork your lungs or your legs. It is a nice
    balance. Genera...

    My 2 cents worth is you would end up regretting paying 200.00 for the trek node. As others
    noted you could spend the same amount and get a much more versatile system like the Garmin.

    I have one I would sell you for 70 bucks! They are not bad computers, but like others have
    said, you can't upload anything. I still recommend Garmin or even the new Magellan but if you
    aren't a number...

    You were lucky because not all shops will do that. With most shops, you'll be lucky to get 10
    or 20% off the SMRP.Sent from my iPad using Bike ForumVery lucky... There is no margin on those
    devices, t...

    Yes and no! Phone batteries have improved significantly over the past few years as far as their
    battery life goes. There are web sites for both iPhone and Androids that tell you how to
    optimize your b...

    Have you had an aluminum bike fail? I have but in my experience steel frames crack too and I
    have not found aluminum to be less durable than steel. My aluminum daily driver has 100,000+
    miles on it. N...

    Frisky, have you play with that Sigma? I have been curious about them.

    The only way that you are not going to pay a fortune is to use your phone, the down side is
    that it kills your battery pretty quickly. Other than that, I would recommend a Garmin 800 or
    810. They are ...

  • Posted in thread: Felt V85??? on 01-24-2015 at 08:41 PM
    I did get a chance to ride last year's version of the V85 in a 61cm (I need a 54cm). And it
    rode great...then I looked at the Trek CrossRip LTD and fell in love.....bought one this
    morning, now I will...
