Based on statements you've made in other posts, this is still not a good harbinger of the future of US cycling success. You've mentioned several times that much of the pro-level development comes...

Just an FYI - Pricepoint.com is apparently going out of business and everything is on super clearance. There's not much left, but they did have 60mm presta tubes for .98. I stocked up.

Am I correct that they ran the 1/2/3 and 3/4 fields together but scored separately?

I tried tubeless for cross a couple years ago. I gave up after one race. I lost the seal about 4 times. I have not tried it since.

What set up are you using?

Had nothing in my legs yesterday. I tried doing my 5x5 intervals, but just didn't have it. It was super hot, and my legs were tired.

Also, my in-laws got me a new training tool. A portable Air...

It sounds like you got lucky. There are many towns that ban bikes on sidewalks, even when a municipal trail merges into one.

I'd guess $1000-$1100 for a frameset.

IIRC, the Caad 10 frameset used to have an MSRP $990. I doubt you'll be able to get a new Caad 10, unless you have a very odd size. And last I heard,...

This has worked for me too. I had a set of old 404 tubulars that no matter what I did, squealed like crazy. I ended up in a race in the rain, and after that, no more squealing.

I'm running a spell check on a document at work. There are a lot of names in it, triggering a lot of spell check issues. In one case, Word suggested I replace the name with "clitoral."
