    Just read an article that Landis is now saying he actually witnessed Lance taking PED's and having blood transfusions. I am curious what the TwoSpoke community thinks about these allegations...Any thoughts on this or the accusations against the other top American riders.

    I really want to get me a road bike soon for longer rides, I have been putting around 100 miles a week on my mountain bike. The mtb is working out fine but I think the road bike would make the 24 mile round trip to my parents house much more comfortable plus I would like to start doing farther...

    I have been using Michelin PRO Race2 and 3 for the past few years and have been quite satisfied but there are so many others to choose from. I'm getting ready to mount the wheels for spring even though riding is still a month away. I will be getting new tires and I am itching to try something...

    Hey guys! I just wanted to pick your brains on what you typically upgrade first when you purchase a bike (assuming it doesn't have all the stuff you want in the first place). I know answers are going to be all over the board, but just let me know. Do you first get a new saddle? or do you...

    I don't understand the advantage of having an 11 speed (gear) rear cassette over say 10/9/8/7/6 or 5 speed cassette? Is this the same marketing gimmick as the 4 or 5 bladed razor? You don't get a closer shave from a 4 or 5 bladed razor than a 3 bladed razor, if you think so I would submit that...

    As I've talked about I'm a big guy biking to lose weight. I was on the road about a quarter of a mile from my house and I had a blow out. I was worried it was a weight issue but I'm thinking not. It just blew out. Any idea what could cause this? I called my bike shop and they said it could be a...

    Since I'm the proud owner of a 2009 (or rather 2010 since my frame is being replaced) Defy Advanced 2, let me be the first to post here. I get the feeling there are not too many Giant owners out there. :(

    Can someone tell me if it's a good idea to put a chainstay protector (or some other type of protection) on a road bike. Also, any other suggestions on how to protect a carbon fiber frame would be greatly appreciated.

    I have not ridden much in the last 6 weeks due to schedule and crappy weather. Today was great so I went out to do one of my regular 15 mile routes and felt like I was pulling 2 tons of weight behind me. Can 6 weeks really make that much difference? I was very discouraged when I finished...

    Although at 56 I may not have seen the fall of the Roman Empire there are days I feel like my body has been around that long. I love where I am at in life. That said, having just returned from nine days aboard a cruise ship with my wife I was / am, suprised how my riding conditioning quickly...

    When do I need to change the tape on my handle Bars? It's not coming off yet but it's getting gross and it's not nearly as cushy as it used to be. Is there anything I need to do to re-tape it right?

    Just got back into road biking after 20+ year break. Finished Livestrong two weeks ago, doing the Wurst ride tomorrow. I've completely lost my mind and started preparing for the Big Ride Across America. Seven week bike ride from Seattle to Washington DC next summer. Raising money for...
