    Yes, exactly. I have a hard time doing the same intensity for a given ride when it's cold out, due to long warmup period and unpleasantness of high wind speeds and sucking cold air. Ride durations...

    Oh, I understand why he asked, and I also understand that most people have a very facile understanding of fit.

    Oh, and the seat is not slammed back; the SMP seat design can play tricks on the...

    Oh my god, that'd drive me nuts! I tried running a front M232, and ditched that fast.

    Man, I almost forgot that I've had that happen, too, and it was frustrating enough that I emailed Lizardskins about it. They said to use rubbing alcohol to clean, which I do now.

    I dunno...I'm on...

    Not in a meaningful way. Balance, reach, position over the pedals are all perfect, and the bike handles amazingly, and with alacrity. It's all-day comfy, and the razor sharp responsiveness is...

    Caps do work well, and I'd suggest looking at runners' caps, because they're usually lightweight, hi-tech materials that don't take up much space, dry quickly, breathe or are vented, and don't hold...

    The point is that if you know you'll never get rid of the human efficiency factor, WTF is up with all this handwringing and psuedo-scientific formulas? Using energy from a powermeter is the best...

    I cannot understand why you people keep using all of these estimated power numbers and then wondering why there's variance in calories. It's crazy. Use a real power meter and, voila, you've got...

    "You won't find a funnier gift geared towards the rainy season." I must really suck, because I've never even considered gearing gifts toward the rainy season.

    It wouldn't even shift properly...oh wait, downtube friction shifters? Jesus.

    Yeah, you're right it is possible-- and I do see some "what-kind-of-freakball-nutjob-would-do-that" bikes out there--...

    White Lizardskins 3.0 isn't bad either, though it does require some cleaning to keep nice. Not "cuts-into-my-ride-time" kinda cleaning, just normal, "I-care-about-how-my-sh*t-looks" kinda cleaning.

    Dux Helm for me.

    Yes, the visor gets pelted, but I treat mine with RainX, which helps a bit, but also, looking through clear glasses through a rain-coated lens is much better than straining to see...

    Not valid. It's extremely unlikely that someone training for a triathlon would be running a 6spd freewheel with an 8spd or more derailleur.

    Seriously. Watts are watts, they can't be bogus. The problem, clearly, is that some guys don't know what they mean.

    Performance Zonal is a great softshell buy at $90, and works for me around freezing temps with just my midweight bibs, a summer shortsleeve jersey, and fleeced armwarmers. When it dips into the...

    What you're imcorrectly calling a freewheel is a cassette. You'll move it over to the new wheels; cassettes are not typically supplied with wheels. I doubt there's a good reason to replace it; as...

    Just to be clear, Abus' top Bordo, the Granit X 6500 or something like that, shares the same security rating as the TiGr 125, meaning it's equally resistant to attacks, and more secure than some...

    If managing weight, portability, security and convenience is an issue for you, you should take a look at TiGr locks.

    They have a couple of widths in a trio of lengths, but the standard length...
