Both kids out of the house, lots of time to myself. Thank God they're self-sufficient. I did something right. Downside is that, with snow all over the roads and no MTB, it becomes a struggle finding...

I own a 2013 Fuji Sportif 1.1 and have owned Fuji in the past. They make a great bike, and I am planing to buy a Transonic to celebrate my 50th in December. The Oval components on the model I want...

Half decaf black tea, quarter water, quarter cranberry juice, tsp salt. I've dubbed it the Salty Palmer. Works like a charm. Would rather drink something wet than have to chew something dry. YMMV.

No doubt - I have friends (women) in the U.K. that are ahead of the leader by a couple thousand. It's your own trend that matters.



Same boat here in Colorado. Last winter was brutal.

I wore cotton shirts and jeans on my paper route as a kid, riding a 35 lb bike with 200 rolled newspapers.

Nice story, Grampa. Now tell us...

Returning two pair of Castelli after about ten rides each because of thin Lycra and stitching coming apart. Santini is built to last, fits well, and is my go-to.

Mine was less painful and more of a constant 9 on a scale of 10 ache, for days on end. I'd rather break a limb.

Yes.



Yes.

FTR, I quit drinking entirely almost 5 years ago. Also eat much less red meat. Haven't seen gout again in that time. Absolutely worth it.

Go with what fits in your hand well and gives you a good ride. 105/5700 are an awful fit for my hands, and I can tune Sora derailleurs to shift as well as 105. Everyone has a preference, this is just...

Last year, I did the logistics. Order placed right after the 4th of July, received in mid-Sept. If we use Primal again, turnaround may be a tad shorter.
