I was so excited today to field a call from Campus Wheelworks that my flat pedals and shoes had arrived. A few weeks ago, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience mountain biking with the Campus group at Sprague Brook, but something just bugged me. I couldn't seem to get com...

Well, this build is not slowing down even though brakes are today's component. These are the Tektro 359 medium reach brakes. They will allow the frame to accommodate bigger tires, so I am excited to give them a shot. I have had the Tektro brand on my CAAD, and they see...

I have always wanted a good steel bike, and in the past I admit to have struggled with bad decision making. Like the time I bought a Colnago steel frame and with down tube shifters and sold it off for half what I paid for it because I was too dumb to convert it over to...
