I just got a GT Team Conway Signature for $500. I'm 6'2", 200 lbs. and it fits me great. It's the only complete bike I could find in that price range with a 21.25" TTL. So far I've been very happy with it. Although I've had it less than a week, so take ... more »

I went riding yesterday. First time back on a bike since I was 15 (roughly 28 years ago). First time ever riding a skate park. I was rather proud of myself for trying the 1/4 pipe. That was something I never had the stones to try when I was a kid. Rode

Added reply in a thread Triple Eight Helmets 7/1/2019 7:10 AM

I got the Triple 8 Sweatsaver and wore it for about 2 hours at the park yesterday. Very comfortable. I can't say how protective it is tho b/c I haven't taken a huge spill (yet). But it feels like a really solid helmet.

Thanks. I assumed as much, but figured I'd ask. Better safe than sorry.

TL;DR: I know I "can" do it, just wondering if it's a bad idea. Just took my new bike for its first spin around the neighborhood and promptly popped a tube. The tires are GT 20x2.2, 60psi. The tube is 20x2.10-2.4. Looks like the standard 20" tube size ... more »

Thanks again to all for the input. The GT arrived yesterday and I put it together last night. I was surprised at how good it felt despite being a 20". The 21.25" TTL definitely feels right. I'm glad I opted for this over the 22".

Welp, I just pulled the trigger on a 2019 GT Conway Team Signature. I'm going to try the 21.25" TTL and see how it goes. Funny how after all these years I'm going back to GT. Shame it doesn't come in hot pink like my old Pro Performer.

Thanks for the advice. I'm starting to look at some longer frame 20s as well as 22s now. Trying to get a complete b/c I don't have the $$$ right now to build something, although that would be my preference. Back in the day I loved wrenching on my bikes ... more »

Whoa! Yeah, I'd say that will be quite helpful. Thanks!

I'm thinking of getting back into riding and am torn between these two bikes. I'm 43, 6'2", 205 lbs. I rode a Fit 22 at a shop over the weekend and it felt really good. I also rode a 20" S&M (21" TTL) yesterday that didn't feel good at all. So I'm ... more »

Started new thread Need help IDing frame 6/18/2019 11:43 AM

Checking out a bike tomorrow that's FS. The listing says it's an S&M frame. Looking at one of the pics the seller sent, I can make out half a logo on the downtube weld, but it doesn't appear to be the S&M logo. Wondering if anyone can help ID
