Triple cranks get lots of scorn, here, but, depending on the terrain where you ride, it may be the better choice. You can install a closer-spaced cassette, without losing useful climbing gears.

BC's listed at 5'-7", 128#, yet he keeps showing up in the front, on the bunch sprints. Impressive!

Too bad you can't get that week back. That case, AFAIK, has been basically set aside, by nearly all 50 states. There must be blight or actual public use, in most states, for the guv to make you sell...

^^ Yeah, that sounds about right, to me. At one point, GVA's lead over the GC contenders was ~15 minutes - a bit too much. Movistar and Sky picked up the pace, to narrow that lead.

+1. We're going to cross 100F, each day this week. From ~2pm to sunset is out, for me. Early(-ier) to bed, early to rise.

Can someone explain to me how fantasy cycling (found in the Pro subforum) is not stupid? I'm willing to learn. Thank you.

Yeah, don't you hate it when the GC asks for your bond rate, and you have the wrong answer. Or no answer, at all. "Uh, well, we are seldom asked to bond our work, but I can definitely get you that...

Perhaps. Talansky now lives in Napa, likely due to its terrain and cycling friendliness - both lacking in Miami.

The 50-mile loop x 2 is a good approach, but I'd wake at 3:30am, eat/drink, then roll by 5:00. You'll likely be done well before noon, and the triple digit temps.

Up to the point when power is compromised, rider weight loss is generally more important. Energy is needed to provide cardio and to heat/cool the extra weight.

I'm convinced that some folks are paid, by the word, to post here. I need an agent.

P.S. Try Zyrtec and Flonase. I did - now sleep and breathe better, through allergy season.

I've ridden dozens of these tires (23s and 25s) over the past few years; put a new set on (25s) last week. Didn't notice anything, until the first ride. A definite bump/hump. I checked for bead/rim...
