Is it illegal for someone to touch your bike? What law would they be breaking by moving your bike?

I don't think bikes are even allowed on the A-n highways. We made the mistake of riding on one for a few miles and got plenty of horns from passing vehicles.

You can also look at Strava heat maps...

Your fuel tank is far from empty when waking up if you've been eating properly. Your muscles, blood and liver have ~1500-2000Cals of glycogen on tap for intense workouts regardless of whether or not...

CF bikes are not as delicate as you imagine. I commute on a 2008 Tricross S-Works carbon bike. It was a relatively expensive ($6,000) bike in its day and I don't baby it in any way. It gets ridden in...

Felt like it. I just did a short out and back on a section of pristine snow. A little over 300W to go 12 or 9kph (with or against the wind). I didn't have very low gearing so my cadence was only 50...

I didn't intend to insult noodle soup and considered my comment to be gentle ribbing rather than an insult as I had no idea what his political affiliation was. Half the citizens of the US wouldn't...

Fat->fatty acids->ATP doesn't sound short or efficient from everything I've read. What do you mean by 'short'?

Gatorskins may be durable but definitely not fast. 28mm GP4000s are fast and durable for most. Durability depends on where your ride. I seldom get flats with GP4000s but ride on relatively clean and...

I know I can ride a century with no carbs or fats. I am curious at what rate one could extract energy from stored vs dietary fat. My guess is there isn't a big difference.

The failure rate may be higher than shimano but that doesn't make it common. It would be difficult for sram to be as successful as they have been if their parts were not reliable. When we're you in...

You didn't answer my question. If you have legitimate data let's hear it. Perhaps you don't see many campy issues due to the relatively low volume of campy sales vs sram.

How common? What is the failure rate of sram vs campy or shimano? You have no idea or data to substantiate your claim. All manufacturers replace broken parts without a hassle so that doesn't say much.

25mm tires will make your existing bike more comfortable. More saddle time will make it easier to handle and it will become more comfortable.
