    I used to ride nonstop from ages 14-24. Nashua, NH has some amazing bike trails that I’d spend all my summers on and when I moved to Florida, I was so stoked with the weather that I just rode my bike everywhere. Back then I had a Giant Iguana 630, which I really loved and wish I still had...

    The wife and I are wanting to get bikes to help pass the quarantine time. I know next-to-nothing about bikes so I'm looking for some suggestions. We live on a gravel road, and will mostly be riding on that, or on dirt paths. We will not be riding on pavement much, if at all. We also won't be...

    I've never seen this, do people have this or is this a one off? Seems pretty cool.

    So I've been thinking of getting a mountain bike for my winter commutes, because riding on uneven snow/ice with 35 mm tires sucks. On the other hand, the combination of slush, sanding and road salt during winter is murder for the drivetrain. So I've been considering something like this...

    Where do I start in looking for a good quality, entry level mountain bike? The wife has hers and does her well, but I've got nothing. I haven't the slightest idea of where to start :lol: Long story short, we plan on riding some beginner to intermediate level trails with chariot in tow for the...

    I was looking at pcpartpicker last night and apparently they made a site for building bikes. Figured you guys might like it so you can build more carbon fiber bikes. :yesway: https://cyclingbuilder.com/

    I'm looking for a bike ringer to install on glass carts for work :lol: We have these giant carts, and it's difficult to see around them, so I want to put ringers on them. I can't seem to find a ringer. There are LOTS of bells on Amazon and such, but I can't seem to find a ringer...

    I'm broke, but could scrape up some dollars for a decent road bike that might occasionally hit the dirt/trails but nothing crazy. i'm a big big at 6 feet/230 pounds. halp, i'm so out of my league i don't even know where to start. I currently have a heavy gary fisher bike(looks a bunch like the...

    Typical bike seats and my ass have never really gotten along. Who makes the best seat, and why don't all bikes come with them?

    So i've been commuting by bicycle for 6 weeks and pretty much plan to stick with it. Also have been getting into it a bit as a hobby and have been hitting a few trails near by. Mostly have been road biking however. I have a pretty solid import which I plan to keep as a loaner but am looking...

    Well picked this up for a steal, like i almost felt bad, haha. The gf wants to ride, so for the time being she'll take mine, and i'll be on this new beast, but she's gone 4-5 days a week for work, so i can switch back and forth as i want. but i took it for a little run today, its so different...

    I grew up riding BMX and prefer the more upright riding position it offers. Which is why i went with a dirt jumping bike when i purchased a MTB. Now I need a bike for the bike path. I'm trying to figure out if I should get a hybrid/beefier road style bike or a CX bike. I prefer a lower stand...

    im thinking i might break out the mtb, but it hasnt been ridden in a while. I got hurt very shortly after picking it up (unrelated to the bike) and it was my first real mtb, most other bikes were simple bmx flatland setups. So it's been hanging for a couple of years, what should i look...

    So, at looking at bikes, it seems the main differentiation is gear systems, frames, and wheels. Makes sense. But that's also where it gets tricky. Bike A. and B. both have the same frame. They have the same bars. However, they have different derailleurs and wheels. There's a $300 difference in...

    Wait for it. A coworker sent me this because he's looking at this wheelset.

    Just finished painting these up for a customer. Harley Sportster Deluxe.... kept kinda the old school feel with the heavy flake (under clear this flake is ridiculous in the sun) but with some modern styling cues, pretty sure they werent putting fire like that in the 70's, haha. nice upgrade for...

    Been trying to ride more, and really would love to ride offroad around here, lots of trails (like the whole Green Belt). I know that I want to keep my Univega set up as a road bike, it does really well for that. I'm going to go bike shopping this weekend, and have no idea really what to look for...
