That's an interesting idea for sure. However, as one of the Greenfield organizers I do want to make the point that converting an event from a one-day race to a stage in a larger event comes with some...

Nice job dz and TKP! Good to see you have a good race, I was psyched for Kenny though obviously. :D

Yeah. My frustration is really borne out of doing an all-time best effort that should've had me near the front - my teammate started the climb right in front of me, did very similar power-to-weight...

Flatballer I did a RR with a big fat climb in it today, low gear of 38x30 (my normal road bike gear is 39x28). I cannot believe I did this climb 3 years ago with a 39x25, and I am a lot lighter than...

Geez, I thought I just had bad legs at Tour of the Hilltowns today. But not just that - I set power records from 4 minutes 15 seconds all the way out to almost 28 minutes. I did over 4.7 w/kg up East...

Yeah, most of the time my crashes have been someone else's fault, and not necessarily deep in the field. Last year, I got crashed out from about 10th wheel on the last lap. And I had a close call...

I'm crashing about once a year the last couple years. All in the same event, which is pretty much the nuttiest crit of the year.

I'm 124 lbs. Would consider Ti Speedplays, albeit more for bike fit reasons than weight. But it wouldn't worry me.

If you're considering PM pedals, word on the street is the PowerTap pedals are cheaper, way simpler to install and every bit as good.

Get well soon globecanvas!



Uh, lets say I've crashed it a few times. Probably 6 or 7 in almost five years, but who's counting?

Anyway repair isn't really economical. A patch would be...

Planned on 3x5 VO2 but then I learned my bike was broken. Got my Stages swapped over to the cross bike, but it took a while since the road bike had an Ultegra crank and the cross bike had Rival. For...

Yesterday I noticed a crack in the paint on the left side of my headtube. I wasn't too worried, because it actually wasn't just on the headtube, it actually went from the headtube perpendicular...

More like 2-2.5. Per tire, though. If that's been my problem this season, I will eat my hat.

LOL no. First of all TPI has nothing to do with grip, second of all the only tire you're liable to find that's as grippy as the GP4000S II is the S-Works Turbo (designed by the same people).

I recently had to replace the hanger for my bike. I ordered two so I would still have a spare ready just in case of disaster.

I think it's tall gangly MF'rs like you that are the problem, not exquisitely proportioned specimens like myself. ;)
