    Castelli has the best leg bands in the business. I've tried Gore, Assos, PI, and other high-end brands and Castelli beats them all for comfort. That said, their sizing runs decidedly small (for the...

    Agreed. The last wheelset I built cost me $815. Kinlin XR-270 rims, DT Swiss spokes (28f/32r), DT brass nipples... and a PowerTap G3 rear hub with matching PowerTap front hub! I think the weight came...

    Personally, I find that Strava Premium is about all I need. I'm not a huge fan of doing structured workouts on a trainer, or poring over data for hours after a ride so Training Peaks is overkill for...

    That appears to be a Topeak Morph pump of some sort. They come with two long Zip-ties that can be used to secure the mounting bracket around the top tube.

    Plodding around at a lethargic pace never did anything for me. Hammering around as hard as I could for as long as I could is what seemed to work for me.

    You should check with your vendor, but I exchanged my first pair of FI.Mille bibs for a different size and model (standard leg vs long leg). I think I bought them from BikeTiresDirect but it might...

    The FI.Mille has been replaced by the Cento. I haven't purchased any of the newer Assos bibs, so I can't comment on whether the sizing is a match.

    I know that the amount of work (in KJ) is relatively accurate because the vendor of my power meter does lab testing and specifies the level of accuracy. Additionally, I routinely calibrate the meter...

    I found that sizing for the Assos FI.Mille bibs that I bought was quite generous. Sizing for the Mille is the same as for most "American fit" brands. If you're wearing shorts that have a European or...

    Yes, but they're decent estimates as opposed to the numbers that HRMs seem to generate. My various heart rate monitors, and every piece of gym equipment I've ever used, all produce calorie numbers...

    1000 calories/hour sounds like BS to me, which is why I asked. Heart rate monitors are notoriously inaccurate as far as calories burned are concerned. I'd divide the calorie number your HRM gives you...

    I'd be curious to know where you got the 1000 calories/hour number. It seems a tad... optimistic.

    I use a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine fluid trainer, usually with TrainerRoad.com and Sufferfest videos.

    I can get a very good workout using the trainer, but it's a different experience from riding...

    One of the fundamental properties of the Kevlar fiber used in the FiberFix kit is that it doesn't stretch much, if at all.

    Old Assos models:
    FI.Uno: entry-level bib.
    FI.Mille: their long-distance model. The cut is a bit more generous and it has a relatively thick chamois. I own two FI.Mille's and love them!
