    2. Bike Route Toaster...is it toast or does it work with Mac?

      So I've used Bike Route Toaster for quite a while, not really into the Strava or Garmin Connect. When I logged on to create a route last week, I got nothing where the map and instructions are...
    3. Sticky: FS: clearing out the parts shelves- a lot of SRAM

      I'm moving stuff on to people who can use it rather than let the parts just sit in my shop. Prefer pickup in Northern New Jersey/NEPA area, but will ship with a carrier of your choice at your cost....

      2,711 miles for the year
      134,812 feet of climb

      At least I'm pretty consistent. Last year I logged 2,780 miles.
      I'm still going for 3,000 for 2013, which is my usual goal.

      If you check the google map pic of the intersection (August 2009) there is no bike lane, just two driving lanes and a parking lane. The photo of the crash shows the right lane painted for a bike...

      The "compact" and "triple" designation refers to the types and number of chainrings on the cranks.
      Triple means there are three gears attached to the cranks. On the Specialized the largest has 50...

      Very nice bike! :thumbup::thumbup:
      Plus, I'm partial to SRAM.

      If you want to see a bike frame with a huge side profile, google "Trek Y Foil". The surface is so large you can nearly tack with the...

      On my Moots I have a Topeak frame pump. I've used it more times on friends bikes than I can count. It works very well. Pumps up into the 90 psi with no problem. I only wish it had a gauge on it.

      If you run 630x32, I assume you have the "old school" 27" x 1 1/4" tires/rims rather than the current road bike standard (622x23 which is 700 x 23C). I'd probably opt for buying a cross bike, which...

      According to bikepedia, the Etape are all "modern" builds (2005-08). They all list the Bontrager Select as the stem, and so would be the 31.8 fit. Thanks for the info on the quill stem bars.

      Thanks for the help. I never thought about the tension on the rear derailleur because I've been so focused on the front, but it makes sense. I'll also pull the chain and...
