There's a climb hereabouts that has a prevailing uphill wind through the valley. It gets up to about 6-7% in places for just over 2 miles. Last time up I flew up on the big ring touching 20mph at...

Dear god no. Sam can't climb a ladder and the Olympic course profile looks like it was drawn by a 2 year old learning to use a crayon for the first time. I think they're sending Martin and Roche. Not...

Martin grew up in England. But your point is still valid.

Main reason Quintana didn't attack today was Arcalis is a long, steady 7% ramp, which suits Froome more . Q needs a good 10%+ pitch to...

Helmets for babies

My twins are about to turn 1. It's about time their Burley Encore got hitched to a bike, instead of just jogging. But they'll need helmets. Any recommendations? Their heads are too small for the ones...

I had a rental bike once and the saddle on it was a good inch too narrow for my sit-bones. The perch was shaped like a sideways ice cream cone. After 1 ride I took it back to the rental place and...

I have to say, I don't know how long it takes me to get to 100psi using my mini-pump, because whenever I think I've got there, when I check my pressure with my floor pump, I'm actually only around...

As true as this is (and it's very very true) I will say that the next 2 things on the list are a pair of comfortable cycling shorts and a pump.

Not that it makes a huge difference on the OP's damn-near-straight-thru block, but an advantage of going small-small on a 12-27 cassette like mine is that you have that close gear 34x12-17 spacing...

For many reasons you'll find it much easier and quicker to pump a tire up to 100psi with a stand pump than with a mini pump. The stated limit is 120psi, and that's fine, but that doesn't tell you how...

A $20 floor pump is more than worth the price, particularly one with a pressure gauge. You may think your mini pump is getting you close to your ideal pressure but it's not. And yes, you can go by...
