I'm in. What a PIA getting registered with their server crash. We have a pretty good sized
group heading up from WV. It is a party ride.

Just arrived for a 2 week visit. Brought the bike & hoping to get some rides in. Any Two Spoke
riders from the Hilton Head area? I'd be great to get out with someone who knows some nice

We've done this a couple of times. It's really more of a bike event than a bike ride, but it is

Posted in thread: Ultegra 10 speed vs Ultegra 11 speed on 09-21-2014 at 03:00 PM
I have both. My older Fuji has an Ultegra 10 speed drivetrain, and my newer Merkx has the 11

Not sure if cyclocross brakes count as suicide brakes. Suicide brakes were brake levers that

'Chuck and Gail's Favorite Rides' is a terrific book showing lots of good area rides. I believe
