It depends on who you ask. Some people say they are terrible some people think they are serviceable. I am in the second camp and have been happy with the tie that I bought from them. Can't beat that price, either.
I have had one suit made by Indochino. Present in the suit was the collar gap problem outlined in Put This On. What changes can I make to my measurements, or what other instruction can I provide, in order to and avoid this problem when dealing with this or other online MTM providers?
If your tailor can't slim down a shirt, that is more than not good, that is full on incompetent. My guess is that if you take it in to them they will have no problem getting the job done. This is tailoring 101. Also, depending on how much you need it brought in, you don't necessarily need darts. I have had some pretty drastic changes to my shirts with just having the tailor bring it in at the side seams. I don't like darts.

My core was my problem. I just focused more on using my abs and back to hold myself, instead of leaning on the bars, and it made a world of difference.
Next time you ride, take note of how much weight your are putting on your hands. If it is more than very little, you need to use your core more.

For no other reason than to avoid running to the hardware store to buy the grease, and then having a tube of grease laying around that I will likely never use again.
Do any of you guys use "no nose" or "split nose" seats? I hate the numbness associated with a ride and then I read this NY Times Article about these seats.
I have done it a couple of time just using a sharp pocket knife to cut through the threads. I washed them and there were no signs of holes. One was an OCBD and one was pinpoint, both came out fine. The OCBD was an old shirt, too, which had been washed several times already.
