    I may be wrong but I don't think you are going to find any carbon road bikes with mounting
    points for racks. You'll have to look at touring bikes instead but i'n not sure if anyone makes

    Before you buy any bibs, make sure you try them on and that your body is anatomically correct.
    My short torso doesn't work with any bib I have ever tried. My correct size is way too loose in
    the shoul...

  • Posted in thread: Best brakes for Touring? Disc or Rim? on 07-27-2015 at 06:28 PM
    My personal opinion, when trying to compare disc to rim brakes is to compare them on like
    bikes. Trying to compare disc brakes on a mountain bike to rim brakes on a road or cross bike

    After two days of all day rains, this morning turned out to be gorgeous. Met Lou, his dad and

    I was going to try and help you with your specific question about the model you mentioned, but
    Salsa doesn't even list it on their web site. If you are considering one of those bikes,
    measure the dist...

    Hoping to ride today but that doesn't look as if it's going to happen. We have another day of
    all day rain. :hate: If I start getting withdrawals, I can always bring in the wife's trike and
    put it on ...
