Still a couple of years away, but we are thinking: Santa Fe (or near there), Denver, Asheville, NC, Eugene or Ashland, OR. Probably sell the house, put most of the stuff in storage and rent in a...

I got a 2010 R3 SL on year end close out, and it March, 2012 it developed a BB crack (2010 SL frames seem to have had a problem with that). Cervelo replaced it with a $4500 R5 VWD frame! I paid LBS...

I would never describe Tabata intervals as fun, but they are effective. I don't like doing them, but I like to have done them.

47.4 mph on the steepest descent on the Civil War Century. Over 40 lots of times on many descents; about 40 is where I start to think "this may be fast enough!"

I use Giordana Nordic gloves. Whatever you use, if you wear $5 silk glove liners (amazon) underneath they'll be much warmer. In fact, on cool (not cold) days, regular fingerless cycling gloves over...

Huh. I have the old Reg group, but switched in the new Yaw FD. INCREDIBLY better than the old Red FD. Chain catcher is easy to set up, cross chaining is (almost) not an issue. Shifts are positive and...

Magic Shine is amazing, especially for the price. There's also a helmet mount that is very cheap and works well.
