I rather wear regular shorts and have a more padded seat than use padded bike shorts and have a stiff seat. And if you are expecting this forum to be mature enough not to take that completely out of context, you came to the wrong forum. Jon.

I like it, but it doesn't fit quite right (but it is close). I drool over a custom Serotta, or maybe a custom Calfee, if I wanted CF.

I looked up Calfee, wow...a bamboo bike, that is sweet. I wonder what the ride on that would be like, more importantly what would happen if you crashed it.

Wow, I havne't been to Calfee's site in a while, I didn't realize they did bamboo now!

I like the CF Tetra, if I were to go Calfee, or maybe a Serotta Legend Ti. Their Ottrott is just way too expensive (although all of the bikes I mentioned are way too expensive as well)

Yesterday I went riding in the wet with on and off rain, and I just realized how happy I am that my bike has disc breaks, the stopping power in the wet is unbelievable! I was riding my mountain bike on a golf course, in and out of the dunes and sand traps, and every time I need to make a sharp stop, the breaks worked flawlessly, delivering perfect stopping power.

I hope you replaced any divots!

I didn't leave any, it was very wet ground and I did not even leave tire marks.

Raked the traps, then?

Sorry, as an ex-golfer, reading your post made me cringe a little.

Listen, the damn golf course was fine. People drive golf carts on the golf course, and they weigh a lot more than my bike.

I've got a Cannondale mountain bike that I don't ride nearly enough.

I ride (rode) a Mongoose Pro 7.2 hardtail (ancient now, I know) with Marzot shocks (shot now) and a hybrid XT/LX component system. I need a new bike... Am looking at some Cannondales I absolutely cannot afford...

Couple of questions:

What is your bottom dollar amount? That is, the highest price you want to pay for the bike, period?

What kind of biking do you want to do?

I think that 1K is the absolute highest I could pay in the foreseeable future, and I ride mountainbikes (which is good, because they are a whole lot cheaper than good road bikes.) I figure I might get a Rockhopper or something similar with a hybrid XT/LX system. Sturdy, reliable, and gets the job done. Sort of the APC New Standards of mountain bikes.
