I've enjoyed the forums on bicycling.com and roadbikereview.com and was delighted to find this one. I don't know why it's taken me so long but it looks like a wealth of information and entertainment. I've been cycling in earnest for about two years now and, having just moved up to the mountains, just have to become a better climber. Help!!! Actually, I think I know how but it's a process you know. I think I'll always be building that base ... hope springs eternal.
