I have two IGH bikes, a SA 8 on a MBT frame and a Shimano 11 on a commuter road bike. I also have two external derailluer bikes. The IGH bikes are heavy in comparison. Slow from a stop.

+1 that's why I got my Volagi. I got sick of waiting for the roads to dry or cleaning road grit out of my drive train when I couldn't wait. Having a real road bike dedicated to wet conditions is a...

Kind of a rambling post ("Contador manages to get married in the middle of this mess") that does not make a case for his questioning of the results of a stage in this years Vuelta.

I seem to remember a former teammate and former team manager insinuate that Contador wasn't "strategic" enough. In light of what he's doing to this race, that seems laughable to me.

Do not look up to the top of the hill. Look at the road right in front of your tire. Looking up just brings your mind into the equation, and the results will be that the hill defeats you.

I'm a masher, I love riding in the 53t ring, I don't like to go to the smaller ring and only use it on real long hills (never the steep ones).

I would appreciate it if you left Bill Russell's name out of this. If you think he cheated in any way, you obviously know nothing about the man.
