So I went and measured the Schwinn that Stick Me inherited.

62cm ST by a 57cm TT

Talk about tall AND short!!

Looking for a bike with a 57cm TT in the $5-700 range. Used of course

Is there such a thing as a shoe for a 12 wide US? I tried on three different brands at the bike store in Jackson, TN and the size twelve shoes wouldn't even come close. So, I laid one on top of my foot and I could still see my foot with the shoe on top.

Sleep, and hydrate.....I'm kicking myself now for it, many signs of heat exhaustion followed.
That's a good ride, 50 miles with the hills, heat, and hangover, I commend you....

I've got big news.

All summer my bike's been creaking like grandma's rocker when I'm pedaling. I thought it was the bottom bracket. Tightened it. Still creaked. Maybe loose crank arms? It's happened to me before...wrenchawrenchawrencha...still creaks. Headset or other handlebar hardware maybe? They were a little loose...

Nope.

It only creaks when I'm seated, not when I'm standing to climb...the seatpost clamp's tight...

I thought to apply a thin layer of grease to my seatpost. Fixed.

I've got wide size 12s and the only shoe I've found to fit worth a shit are Diadora. Course I'm a cheapass and didn't even consider Sidi.
