I've honestly never heard of that. It must be yet another channel that only satellite operators carry. USN was hard enough to find.

There is no Universal HD. These events will be going to NBCSN and NBC Live Extra now. The latter's good, but unfortunately they don't leave their stuff up as long as USN used to, so you have to catch...

The teams should rally their sponsors in support of a strike of ASO races. The ASO thinks they have all the power because the UCI and teams aren't striking back. But this isn't chicken and egg....

+1 on the Trek or any comparable hybrid. They'll work great for that purpose. I tow a trailer with ours and it works great. It would also work great for panniers, but we're not campers really.

Depends on which benefit you care about. I'm not sure they make you that much more efficient on the bike because, in all likelihood, most people don't pull up with the "upstroke" leg. What I noticed...

With Gatorskins, I can't see a reason for liners. I never flatted with Gatorskins, although "goatheads" aren't a problem in my area.

Tops are by far the easiest way for both men and women to save money. I do have some cycling jerseys, but rarely wear them. Most all of my riding is in Russell athletic shirts I got from Target years...

The cops may be bored in Piermont and you may not like their rules, but the fact is riding 2 wide is illegal there too. Signs are posted and if you are caught, they'll ticket you.
