I have Look KEO easy's (going to upgrade to Classic's soon) with Specialized Sport Road shoes; they don't feel super tight when I skid nor are they the stiffest. One of my LBS has the S-works roads on sale for like $385 after taxes (normal is almost $100 more) or I can get the Sidi Carbon 5's for $260 at a different LBS.Any preferences to either?I can get the Mavic Avenge for like $200 but I'm not sure it's much of an upgrade from my currents Also, who here wears clipless and what shoes are you on?

Hello!My bike has been stolen twice last year, once from a coffee shop and once from my backyard(it was chained to a fence but the fence is low and easy to jump over). So now I got a new bike and it is a really good and expensive one and I would hate if it got stolen. I researched the market for bicycle insurance and found out that two companies actually do provide this service. First one is Markel Insurance and the second one is Velosurance Bike Insurance. There is also Spoke Insurance but I did not like their reviews. I got the quotes from both of them and their prices are almost the same for the same coverage options. The difference is really low so I want to ask if anyone dealt with any of these companies and could advise. I would like to know if they reject claims, how quick they are to process claims etc.Any input helps.Continue

I'm 20 yrs old. I've only been riding a fixie for a couple days and it's been a little scary. But I think by now I'm getting used to it. The whole reason I joined FGR is to meet with other fixie riders who are new or maybe already have experience and want to ride, just for the heck of it. I'm not looking for anything really intense. I live in Fullerton, Ca. Also, if anybody could maybe point me to a group that is active that would be great! I mostly ride during the weekends when I have more free time. Continue

How's it hangin', FGR? My name is Andrew and I'm a New York City bike messenger trying to connect with people who ride just like me. It's hard to do so here! I see like six people on track bikes riding together and wonder "how in the world do you find people to roll with like that?" All my friends have BMX, MTBs, Hybrids, and Cruisers and whatever... They're all afraid to even ride MY bike! As a fixed-gear brakeless freewheel-hating urban rider I need a crew that can keep up and is down for rides across the city. That's why I joined up. I'm looking for hardcore (or chillaxed, I don't mind!) fixie riders to call up, roll out with, and eat road-bikers and Citi bikers for breakfast. PLEASE don't be afraid to hit me up even if you live in the Bronx, man! I feel like home here; let's get up and tear down bike lanes people! We live with the cars here in the Big Apple!Continue

Hi folks,I have been an avid cyclist for years and at the age of 50 fixed gear has caught my eye. I have been looking for a bike and have found two options. My LBS has a Fuji Track Classic. A very nice bike, not overly flashy but appears to be good value with the frame set and components. I have also considered some of the on-line mail order companies but I'm nervous about buying sight unseen.Any thoughts or advise would be appreciated.ThanksJeffBrantfordOntario, CanadaContinue
