Well, let me fire up my fiddle for poor ol' Betsy. Her testimony against Lance in the past was found to not be worth the breath she spoke it with. Also, you spelled her name wrong. So there.

This should have been over and done with a year and a half ago. Dragging it out all this time makes the sport look even worse than it already does, imo. And, not for nothin', but this is probably the...

Cyclist hit and killed in Cambridge, MA

Not many details in the story. I've found, through personal experience, that Cambridge is generally a very cycling-friendly city. You usually see tons of commuters all day long, with plenty of...

Can't say with respect to Shimano, but my normal-width CX330C's are wider, and much more comfortable, than my non-Mega Sidi's. They are also just a tiny bit wider than my Diadora's, which I wear...

That looks like something a bum slept in for a few years, complete with an "easy-access" hole for those drafty, wintertime bowel movements.

I've been taking Claritin D for years, and never had any unusual cramping. However, everybody is different. Talk to your doctor.
