Yes. The CAAD12 105 is a great bike. I went from a 10 year old Trek Pilot to a CAAD12 last year and it changed my life. I'm 13% faster than I was on the old bike. Riding is much more comfortable....

I think that's an entirely subjective question. I went from a touring geometry to a race geometry and feel at least as comfortable on long rides. That's a hard thing to assess on a test ride,...

The flu kept me off my bike for 3 weeks. When I got back on I was in horrible shape. Stuff that was easy 3 weeks ago was making my heart rate soar.

They are as accurate as you make them. I go into the Garmin tool on my PC to plot my routes. It's easy and tells me exactly where to go.

My Garmin Edge 25 was $120. I consider it a bargain. It gives me turn by turn directions, records GPS, cadence, heart rate and speed, uploads effortlessly to Strava and is small.

I go on solo rides that last around 3 hours usually and I never feel lonely. But I never feel lonely off the bike, either. Maybe it's because I've got a great wife and daughter plus plenty of...

So A was entering the parking lot? Then A has the right of way. People in the parking lot have to let others enter so they won't be blocking real roads.

They forget. My helmet is light and comfortable. After an hour or so I forget I have it on.

Spending a lot of time removing logos indicates a deep, deep concern about appearance. I was raised to care less about how things look and more about their function.
