I would echo much of the sentiment expressed by @FredCook .  I've been on heavier bikes that "felt" lighter than ones that weighed less.  I'm all for finding ways to improve how...

The wrist band is a good idea to control the sweat.  But I would also highly recommend wearing gloves at least for the protection.  I used to wear half fingered gloves in...

Think I’m the outlier.  I keep my bike in my SUV for two reasons.  First, I travel pretty much every week.  But the main reason is that if I get an opportunity to...
