    I ride 53/39 with 12/27. If I were you, I'd ride it awhile and see what happens. You might find
    it hard to climb some stuff in 39/23. You could run your existing chain rings thru a gear chart
    with a 1...

    I mistakenly left my GSC-10 and magnet on the trike; the buyer is shipping it back to me this
    week. While I don't mind using GPS for speed, sometimes I'd like to see a more "real-time"
    speed which is ...

    Your non-riding friends won't understand. That's okay. Just feed your passion with a better

    I have one of those on my 1984 Basso Gap. It's a nice feature in the field to save your paint

    chainstay and ...

    Zipp is owned by SCAM, I mean SRAM. Likely a design flaw. SRAM 's business model is to replace
    stuff that breaks, with a smile.

    Most commodities have a luxury segment. Bicycles are no exception. "Too expensive" is a
    relative term only. If your passion is bikes, and you have the disposable income, spend all you
    want. It's no on...

    You're not alone. This thread might help.

  • Posted in thread: Automatic gear shifting bicycles on 10-14-2014 at 07:22 AM

    so I have a feeling that the 'workout' and any development would be compromised.No, you can
    pick watts, ...

Husband told me they make baskets to ride them on bikes with...
