Cumulative descent isn't a huge thing for me. I guess my main objective is to find something that is compact and fairly accurate. I don't want something as big as a Garmin on my bike. If that is...

10 speed cassette on 9 speed shifters?

I'd like to take my Powertap wheel off of my new 10-speed Ultegra setup and use it on my old 9-speed 105equipped bike for indoor training.

Can I do that?

I lived in Sacramento in 1988-1989 and rode on the ARBP quite a bit. It is a nice trail but even then there were "racer" types who thought they owned the entire path and rode like idiots.

I have found chocolate soy milk has a great balance of carbs, protein, and fat. I usually drink about 16oz immediately after the ride, followed by some plain water, then I just eat as normal.
