Cheapest way to measure power?

Find a good long hill that's steep enough that you can only climb it under 10 mph/15 kph. And by long, I mean long enough to take at least 10 minutes to climb.

To get weight off your hands, move your saddle back.

If that causes your position to become uncomfortable because now you're bent over too far, raise your bars higher. And use a shorter stem.

Summary of above: there's so much variation between people that "average" or "target" heart rates are useless as a training goal.

I'd ride it, just like the others.

I'd probably let it stay the way it is, though, just so I could see if it decides to start growing.

If it does start growing, put a fork in it - the kind you...

Geez, you don't even need case law.

It's spelled in in VA, at least, and VA is probably not very different from other states.

How much riding have you done?

Something falling out of a jersey pocket is RARE. And it's usually because it wasn't fully in the pocket.

You're going to get a lot of anecdotes saying, "They worked for me."

Wut?

Who sponsors you? Who's your mechanic that changes your tires?

While tubulars are common in races, I'd say they're still in the minority, and by FAR in the minority in cat 4/5 races.
