    yup. i've been googling those legs for the last half hour.

    so i guess the science behind it is that compression tights would keep the pressure higher in the legs so varicose veins don't form. so unless you want to have hincapie legs, compress/elevate those suckers. the picture alone would probably make an effective advertisement.

    the compression sock may prevent, or just slow down the process. there are previous threads on the topic, and i guess genetics play a role. i love testing new recovery techniques. we all get the heavy legs, they feel sluggish, muscles feel tight, and it bothers me when i have to sit or stand in the same position for extended periods of time. you should have seen me in the theaters the other day, i felt bad for the people next to me because i was squirming all over the place trying to extend my legs. yesterday i did 1.5 hour drive each way to LA and would have loved these socks.

    i did tons of research, like with anything else i buy, and finally came down to asking a good friend (triathlete, cat2 roadie) who works at a local nytro cycling shop. i said "compression socks, fad or function?" and he answered "2xu=fad, cep=function."

    here is the basic description you will see when researching them:

    "By compressing the surface veins, arteries and muscles, the circulating blood is forced through narrower channels. The arterial pressure is increased, causing more blood to return to the heart and less blood to pool in the feet. Compression socks are tightest at the ankles, gradually become less constrictive towards the knees. The soles of compression socks may be heavily padded for better shock absorption."

    so, what i like to do is use "the stick" first to loosen up the muscles then throw the socks on.

    very informative, thanks for the info. i don't think i'm to 'the stage' where i need to be using compression clothing, but when i get there i'll make sure to check those socks out.

    peppermint oil eh? gotta be the menthol. would probably smell just as good as it feels.

    "New bike week" for me. Picked up a 2010 supersix, full ultegra 6700 gruppo, ritchey pro headset and carbon seatpost, FSA k-wing bars and ultegra pedals. Spent the weekend building it up. It's almost finished except for the seatpost which is backordered and a fresh wrap on the bars after I tweak the fit. Using a crappy bonetrager MTB seatpost for the time being.

    Latest upgrade...

    Ritchey WCS Carbon Press Headset and carbon spacer.

    Wasn't able to use the Ritchey top cap though due to the way the original Kore headset screws into the carbon steerer.

    Second SRM Cannondale SI spider, SRM PC V, mounting kit (BB), charger. My first SRM spider just went dead (no power readings, and flaky ones for a week).

    I was debating staying old/incompatible (SRM PC V) or upgrading to Ant+ Sport (Quarg, new head). With the reliability of SRM, used parts support, the fact that I want two bikes complete/ready to go, I decided to stick with the incompatible SRM PC V.
