Great deals on a comfy saddle and fast wheelset
Category: Technical

I have a Terry men's Fly saddle that I bought a few years ago, slapped on a bike, rode a couple of times on the trainer, and have not used since. I'd rather someone else get to enjoy it. Quite possibly THE most comfortable saddle for long rides (I have two more on other bikes I have been riding for !5 years+). Light weight, leather cover, titanium rails and virtually indestructible. Sells for $169 new; first $100 takes it. http://www.terrybicycles.com/Saddles/Me … Gel-Saddle

I also have a BRAND NEW pair of wheels for sale -- never been ridden. The Mavic Cosmic Elite wheelset is strong, aero and reasonably lightweight (1,770 grams). As the manufacturer notes: "Cosmic Elite has been designed for high speed addicts. High elliptical flanges coupled with high efficiency hubs and bearings quality, this is the wheel of choice for all speed enthusiasts, road racers and triathletes." More info at http://www.mavic.com/en/product/wheels/ … mic-Elite.

The renowned Continental Grand Prix is easily the most respected road clincher in cycling. Known for its extremely long wear, the Grand Prix is a staple training and racing tire for all cyclists, from weekend warriors to world champions.

This updated version features the Black Chili rubber compound for lower rolling resistance, plus even even better durability and grip. Excellent puncture protection is ensured by Continental's proven Poly-X breaker, a lightweight layer directly beneath the tread.

New retail for wheels, tires and tubes is $590. First $400 takes the set.

SRAM Red Yaw FD installation
Category: Technical

Thanks, Ed. I think that might be one of my problems. With the inner bolt all the way down for the first step, the cage is still not all the way out where it should be. Unfortunately, I believe my mount is riveted in place, so I might need to reinstall the Force and try to sell the Yaw. I'll call the folks at Race Pace first, though. Again, thanks.

P.S. I agree that the printed instructions were useless!

SRAM Red Yaw FD installation
Category: Technical

I am getting increasingly frustrated with trying to dial in a SRAM Red Yaw front derailleur to replace the SRAM Force I originally had. Even a good local shop could not get things working correctly. Anyone have some expertise to share? Happy to pay for the help!

The best pedals for aching knees
Category: Technical

On offer are two sets of Speedplay X2 road pedals, with stainless steel spindles. The X-series pedals provide knee-saving lateral rotation, without the self-centering action inherent in most pedals - your knees don't have to work against spring tension. Their compact, low-profile shape positions your foot closer to the spindle, for optimal power transmission, not to mention the unmatched cornering clearance. And their dual-sided design provides the easiest entry/exit of any clipless pedal.

Pedals do not include cleats (readily available for $40 a pair), but I will throw in cleat covers that make walking with Speedplay cleats much easier.

Original retail was $185 each. I have had these professionally serviced yearly and am asking $75 per pair.

Please call 443-519-9676 or email thomlieb@outlook.com. Also, I still have a very nice set of Mavic wheels for sale and am willing to deal.

Glencoe Road being resurfaced
Forum: Road Problems

Sounds like a good alternative, Bill. I don't know the area all that well so wasn't able to make the connection in my head. But good to know for the future.

Glencoe Road being resurfaced
Forum: Road Problems

Just back from riding up in Hunt Valley and was not happy to find that the surface has been stripped off Glencoe from Carroll nearly all the way down to the bottom of Glencoe. Part of the opposite side had not yet been stripped near the bottom.  While the surface is rideable, you will find lots of trucks and other machinery, and big patches of gravel here and there. Be careful!

Take-off wheelset from new bike -- never ridden
Category: Technical

I thought I would upgrade my wheels this year, so got a new set. But then I also got a new bike. I decided to put the new wheels on the new bike, so I have no need for the wheels that came with the new bike.

The wheels up for sale are brand new and have never been ridden. The Mavic Cosmic Elite wheelset is strong, aero and reasonably lightweight (1,770 gramts). As the manufacturer notes: "Cosmic Elite has been designed for high speed addicts. High elliptical flanges coupled with high efficiency hubs and bearings quality, this is the wheel of choice for all speed enthusiasts, road racers and triathletes." More info at http://www.mavic.com/en/product/wheels/ … mic-Elite.
