And sports drinks work great for me -- I might switch flavors halfway through a long brevet if I get tired of fake fruit punch, or occasionally get a coconut water or something else. I find I can't...

Yeah, then I think you'll like the Lezyne. It actually screws onto the valves (and can do both Schraeder and Presta), has a little hose like the Road Morph, and doesn't tear up valve stems. I used...

If you want something similar to your Topeak in form factor, I've been happy with my lezyne micro floor drive hpg (the one with the gauge).

Bummer! Heal fast!

I spent Saturday riding up to Portland on the shorter of two NE Randonneurs team options (and Sunday took the train back -- Amtrak is sadly screwing up again with the bike...

Seven knows randonneuring, so I don't think that's an issue. Is it the same local fitter/shop that would be working with you and [whichever bike maker]? If not, that might be even more important...

There's a variety of ways, but fitfiletools.com is the easiest. And yes, there's an unfortunate amount of fussing with the things. I still like having mine, both to have a record of the event and...

Yeah. I have marathons on my city bike, because it rides over all sorts of crap, and most rides are 3 miles to the grocery and back sorts of things, where I really do not want to have a flat. I had...

It's actually the 810 hardware, which shares the 100% charging issue. I was thinking more of the complaint of it (the 810) having too many features than the actual physical package.

I really like my Garmin Touring, just to add another model into the pile. It can run and recharge at the same time, with the caveat that it gets cranky if it recharges to 100% while running. (So I...

Me too. Great day for a ride, and a nice large crowd showed up. I showed up way undertrained (long story) but had fun anyway, and had a much more social ride than I usually do.

I stand corrected, then. The one I saw in-person was bought a year or more ago, and the picture on the RUSA site hasn't changed. Weird. Guess you'll need to talk to RUSA then.

Pretty sure the RUSA vest is a custom L2S vest. I know (from trying on a friend's) that the XXL is a bit big on my 44" chest but I couldn't tell if it was so big that an XL would fit.

Normally? No. I get on my bike by swinging a foot over the back directly into the saddle. Then I clip that foot in (if on my road bike; commuter has flat pedals). I have the other toe on the...

Yeah, it's the first half I can't do. I can get up and down from the saddle to a relaxed stand in the pedals (or in one pedal with the other foot in the air) just fine. I just can only go down from...

tips for learning to mount from in front of the saddle

I've never, ever been able to figure out how to do the Sheldon/standard roadie mount where you stand over the top tube in front of the saddle and somehow fly up and backwards and land on the saddle. ...

Zip ties to the little metal bracket on the back, which means I can still tilt it if I need to. Where helmets have holes in them varies a lot, so the exact zip-tying configuration that works on mine...

+1 for a Shimano 9-speed mountain derailleur and an 11/36. Works a charm. (It works fine with ten-speed shifters, it's one of those odd quirks of interchangeability.) I'm a masher so I do use my...

Alas, I already switched to thin tape. That got the rear rim to be halfway-decent to put the Contis on, but not the front, which for some odd reason is substantially tighter. And which always seems...

You could always hop the Worcester/Framingham commuter rail line out to Grafton, which is most of the way out there.

I do prefer SPD shoes for my road bike, so that limits my choices. If I...
