  • 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
    speed. The difference is very slight. I almost prefer the 10 speed because it is less
    temperamental than th...

    Not sure if cyclocross brakes count as suicide brakes. Suicide brakes were brake levers that
    actuated the primary brake levers. They were physically tied into (not by cable) the brake
    lever, and as a ...

    'Chuck and Gail's Favorite Rides' is a terrific book showing lots of good area rides. I believe
    most are at least 30 miles however. You could also scout out Potomac Pedalers online to see
    what rides t...

    Elvis is right. If you put time in on the hills, riding flats is easy. Repeats are the best way
    to get better on hills. In WV we have plenty of hills. Yesterday I did Red Hill (1 3/4 miles
    long) three...

    One other thing it could be: If when replacing the chain the pin protrudes even slightly on
    either side of the chain it can cause skipping in the cassette. But I realize your issue is in
    specific gear...

    I did some research on waxing chains a little while back. I came away with the conclusion that
    the wax properties make it good for wet/muck conditions, but a quality lube is better overall.

    I think Lou deserves credit for keeping his bike in the kitchen. Nice!!

    Why wouldn't you just patch it?

  • Posted in thread: Sizing Sidi Road Shoes on 02-10-2014 at 03:44 PM
    Thank would be too easy. The sale only offers full sizes. I'm think of bumping up to the 42. My
    PI shoes are 41's and are pretty tight & I have to be sure to wear a thinner sock with them.
    Thanks.

    I'm looking for a new pair of road shoes. Found a pair of Sidis online on sale. Problem is I'm
    a US size 8 shoe. In the European sizing I fall between a 41 and a 42. Anybody know if the
    Sidis tend to ...
