comment Is it better to have a slightly big or slightly small bike?
@WTHarper, thanks for the link. If correct, "Chainstay length....too short, bike is too jumpy" might explain the difference between tandem handling and single handling, or maybe its just that every maneuver has to deal with the momentum of your stoker.

@WTHarper Agreed. As you lengthen the wheelbase your single will handle more like a tandem.

comment Is it better to have a slightly big or slightly small bike?
@DanielRHicks, Grant Petersen is making a stronger claim: that bikes sold and fitted to customers tend to have frames that are too small and bars mounted too low.

@WTHarper, are you sure the feel of the long-haul trucker wasn't the rake of your fork? IIRC, the LHT fork is angled to smooth out small perturbations so that you can easily hold a curve, but they feel less responsive/twitchy when you do want to make small course corrections.

comment Is there a reason for brakes to be reversed in bikes with Hydraulic Brakes?
@Starx, Hydraulic brakes depend on an incompressible fluid so air bubbles in the hose can prevent the brakes from working. Unless you have experience bleeding air out of the system, I wouldn't muck with them.
