Thanks. Very useful information. After doing some poking around of my own, I came to a similar conclusion. I also noticed in my initial post that I tossed my mechanic under the bus a bit. It's...

Thanks. It sounds like their rate might be a little high, but not too far off. I like this shop, they do a first-class job so didn't want to give them a WTF!? call unless/until I verified that this...

$120 to glue on tubulars?!

I made the mistake of asking my wife to drop off my wheels at the lbs. That never goes well, because she learns what biking things actually cost. This time, she called wondering why my lbs will...

Thanks, everyone. Epoxy is what I was thinking, as well, just to minimize the likelihood of further damage.

The pics show the full extent of any visible damage. In fact, since I zoomed in with...

Opinion- Is this Reynolds Carbon Wheel Kaput?

In a race last weekend, I took a bad line on a corner and dinged my rear wheel (2012 Reynolds 66 tubular) on a curb. Near the end of the race I noticed that the tire was getting a bit soft. Upon...

A few thoughts:

First, I'm disappointed that the UCI has not taken disciplinary action against MC. This was not just about fighting for position. He deviated from his lane and intentionally made...

It's always a good day when a smartass comment results in me learning something new. Thanks!

In addition to the other good advice here, nobody has mentioned race radios and a team car driven by a Directeur Sportif. Why would you attempt a two-person paceline without such support?

I'll tell you what the other posters are too polite to say: It's past the autumnal equinox...you missed the boat on buying a new CAAD10. Better luck next year.

I only race a couple of crits per year, so I'm no expert, but since bike handling is my most important criteria (in any race), I race with one bike. I put money into fit, as others have said, and...

No-see-ums account for a signficant portion of my in-saddle nutrition. On some rides, I'm like a whale swimming through a plankton cloud.
