That's too bad! Everyone is different. My wife recently switched from her lower bottom bracket bike to a high racer and took off immediately. She's logged more miles just this year than she did in...

What style of bike did she ride before? Was she a hardcore roadie, MTB, or ride a comfort bike? We could probably help with some ideas as to what bikes to try if you can give us some more details....

Whatever you do, stay away from RBM if you want to look at bents. All they do is denigrate you for even considering anything other than a 'real bike." Especially women seem to be treated this way. ...

There are plenty of races where bents can and do mix - quite a few in Texas. Just none of the crits. I've raced plenty of other stuff. The next MAJOR event would be the tejas 500. www.tt24tt.com....

Honestly you guys won't have to worry about it for a while, anyway. Most bent riders are not that into speed. Give the rest of us who are a chance, help us learn to paceline like any other rider,...

Any morning riders or riding groups in DFW?

I'm a teacher "off" for the summer and I'm bored riding by myself every day. I need someone to either chat with, or push me a little bit, or convince me to do the extra miles. I know the FWBA has...

What he said. Plus, many are not such hardcore cyclists as yourself. They need the long breaks to sit and relax and regroup for the next leg of the journey. I can do a 100k with 1 bottle of water...

I had a great time. The wind started off pretty light, but certainly picked up! I was hoping for a 5 hour run, and ended up with 5:30. Still, not bad, except the last ten miles was torture? Did I...

Hell Week

I'm headed down to the HC600 race, but will be going to Hellweek after that. Unfortunately, my roomie cancelled and I am without lodging. Anyone going and has an extra bed?
