Posted in thread: Best brakes for Touring? Disc or Rim? on 02-03-2016 at 10:12 PM
I have a touring bike with road/disc and I loathe them. They are BB7 Road and their engagement
is so late I never feel like I'm getting the full use of them. I tried TRP road disc also and
did not lik...

I moved to a compact when my frame was replaced by Spec under warranty but I would not have
done it if it didn't also mean moving to 11 speed because when I went to 11 speed it meant the

I thought you meant tube but of course you said tire. I don't know anyone that does so for

showing, the ...

I think these evaluations are oriented too much toward commuting. For road cyclists that are

Best time to ride depends on where you live and what you like, eh? If I didn't ride when it's

week, on a b...
