Posted in thread: fuji or cannondale help on 10-23-2013 at 02:29 AM
I've been riding the exact Fuji Team Pro you pictured and have about 24,000 miles on it. The
only things I've ever replaced on it are break pads, cables, and the chain - essentially wear
items. It's b...
Posted in thread: Excessive sweating on 10-19-2013 at 09:53 PM
I've started wearing the Halo skull cap. It has a gutter in front (a plastic strip) that keeps
sweat from pouring into your eyes. The two times I rode without it this summer I had problems
with sweat ...

One thing about a decent repair stand - they last forever. I think I bought mine 25 years ago.
It seemed like a lot of money at the time, but it is an essential piece of equipment. Nothing
wrong with ...

I agree YouTube and the Park Tools website both have lots of informative video clips. Another
good source for bike repair and general bike information is the Sheldon Brown site -

Why a triple chainring? Unless you're doing some serious hills or just not a very strong
climber, you're probably better off with a compact double. Triples are much fussier to keep
dialed in. And you'...
Posted in thread: ID these cleats and pedals on 02-02-2013 at 05:02 PM
I like SPD's on my road bike. The SPD cleat is recessed, so they faciliate walking around
pretty easily. Road cleats are not recessed, and they can be pretty slick to walk around on.
Posted in thread: Need help with back issue on 01-18-2013 at 04:11 PM
I agree with Rola. As long as I do exercises to maintain a strong core I have absolutly no back
issues. If I slack off on doing stomach crunches, etc. I will develop back spasms. One time it
was so ba...
