The thing is Colnago is a big business that's been going for many years. I think they produce (including overseas subcontracting) 10,000 frames annually. You don't get that way using Taiwan...

I liked that color. That's what I wanted with my first road bike but it wasn't available two years later. I ended up with a specialized slightly darker but white saddle and tape. Also was the bike...

Right. Also get a pair of leather shoes that are really tight to begin with. Nail the cleats in the sole. Waer them until the blisters on your feet turn in to calluses.

I agree with everything you said except NASCAR cars are stock. The only thing stock about those cars is the logo on the manufacturer sticker.

I just carry my phone in my jersey pocket and never had any problem. Ziplock bags trap moisture and heat. Phones are more durable than people think.

You lost lots of water from insufficient electrolytes as others said. Salt helps retain water. When it's not present, water passes right through and you get dehydrated. Try those electrolyte...

The downside of going too short with valve stems is they don't work with some pumps. You may need to borrow someone's mini pump or floor pump in an emergency and be out of luck.

Yep. Rim shape makes a huge difference. I've got Zipps at 52 deep and they really aren't a problem. But I don't regularly go out when the wind is 20 mph. I just got a new bike with HED 32s and...

That's almost exactly what my tests with my bikes showed. I did get a little better (15 feet) in very wet conditions by tapping the brakes first and then hitting them hard with rim brakes. That...

You are way off there. The difference in dry conditions on smooth roads is zero. With gravel roads, the difference is two meters. With wet conditions on dry roads it's three meters.

It really depends on what elements the bike is exposed to. I ride my bikes and keep them in the garage. When I get home I wipe them off if I've been in resin. With snow or grit, I hose and dry. ...

It's really difficult to eject a bottle. The only reason I've found is cheap cages - the ones for $5.95 and then only after a lot of use. The thing to watch out for is too tight cages, especially...

Mobile 155,

I believe your comments are right on the mark. I'll add that among avid cyclists, the majority don't see the need either. I do a lot of travel and look for rides everywhere as well...
