I got my Flo 60's in and they are like new, but a tad bit on the heavy side. First thing I did was remove the stickers, to get that solid black carbon look. Additionally the off chance I get super...

I'd love to live in SD again. Unfortunately both of us are tied into good jobs in the IE, which isn't the worst problem. Technically my wife can work out of any of her 20 factories she oversees,...

2 close calls in races; I crash probably once a year; the only epic one going off the road and down a cliff (about 20 feet) descending down GMR. My front tire tore going 35 mph into a bend; it was...

The temps aren't new, I ride in 100+ quite a bit, even in our group rides. Been doing it for years. I've just found 115ish to be that unsafe number where you can't replenish water fast enough.

A few of our Domestic Pro's don't make squat but have jobs or rooms gifted by some of our other riders who are essentially poorer Oleg Tinkoffs. Those guys are the unsung heroes of the sport.

Feel a tad lazy; didn't ride to work today because its supposed to be 110+ and after riding in 115+ I felt off for a week. Never really believed in not riding in heat until that but now it worries...

With VanGarderen bowing out and conceding so much time, am I the only that thinks USA Cycling is in a terrible spot right now? Maybe that will change with Phinney in the Olympics or Talansky at the...

The great thing about Triathletes is they like to buy new stuff and use it once. I needed some training wheels for my TT bike and got some FLO 60s for a great price (supposedly only used in an...

The one thing that sucks about Gatorskins is getting shelled in group rides. Before complaining, you have to check every ones tires to make sure no one else is running them....
