    There is a post in Frames where a guy is claiming a custom bike builder has ripped him off to the tune of $14,500.....when the builders site indicates a frame is $1,900! Even if you put $5K in for a uber build package with custom wheels........you are still $7,600 high. That really...

    I'm looking to go clipless after a few weeks of trying to deny that it's probably better. I don't want to put much money into this, but I need shoes and pedals. Any suggestions?

    Hey guys I have a question...is it possible/probable to gain weight from cycling? Background/history: I've been a rather active runner for the last few years (7-10 miles during the week with a long run 10-15 miles on the weekends). I started cycling late fall and naturally my running mileage...

    New VBulletin seems more stable. "New" features don't seem to add a whole lot. Tagging? Rep? Grief is a sneaky sucka' just when you thinks it's gone, it overpowers you. Went out and shot pics this weekend...forgot how much I enjoyed it. Nice reminder. Tired of the rain getting in the way...

    So I've been scanning these forums and various reviews online for about 6 months now and have narrowed down my choices to a few bikes at various shops near my home. This will be my first "actual" bike purchase and I'd love to hear some advice regarding the following questions: 1) Is it...

    Yesterday I went out for a ride in the pouring rain. Two hours after and soaking wet by this time, I find out I couldnt clip out! I finally did, clipped in again and again I had difficulty clipping out. With lots of intersections on the way home--I limped home-pedals unclipped. (its a scary...

    I bought a Specialized Dolce Sport triple for my wife but right after we got the bike home we went for a Dr. appoiment and they told us she's pregnant but also she's type 2 diabetic. Long story short, I had a brand new bike just sitting in the garage, my wife rode it only about 5 miles and...

    While working on my bike tonight, I took a closer look at some damage I incurred last fall to my right seatstay. Another rider ran into me from behind and got his handlebar/shifters tangled up into my rear wheel. At the time I didn't notice the damage to the seat stay, but tonight I notice...

    I'm looking at a 2011 Trek 2.1 and a 2011 Cannondale CAAD 10. Both have Shimano 105 components. The CAAD 10 is about $150 more. Any suggestions on which is the better bike for the money?

    Any Loungers interested in putting together a group entry for RAGBRAI in 2011 (July 24-30)? If one of us gets in, we all do. We don't necessarily have to ride the entire route together (NTTAWWT) but increased numbers would help all of our chances. Post up if interested.

    The other day I went over to a friend's house to get his and his wife's bikes ready for a duathlon. I asked him if he had a workstand, and he pointed to his workbench, covered in junk. I said I meant a bike stand, but I figured he did not have one. I then said "No problem, we will just make...
