    Oh, I know the bike will be, but I'm sure I'll draw the disdain of a lot of more skilled riders than me who believe you have to earn such bikes.

    The boys at Whistler will get a good laugh on me rockin' this... hoping to pick one up this fall. I won't have the legs or the cojones. Double whammy.

    Carbon has serious durability issues. Just watch these guys blow up their ENVE wheels.

    And then there are the people who have the legs AND can afford the good stuff. But you don't hear about those people on BF because nobody on here would know how to make themselves feel better by...

    I had one of their tri bikes for a while - the E116. Great bike but a little too long and low for me. Otherwise a fantastic ride.

    The Cooper is a nice ride. I've been really happy with my R230/Red. I'm a full-on Ti grouch now--haven't even been interested in the carbon frame du jour anymore. It's just pure joy to ride, and made...

    Thanks. Just had another checkup and all is well, so I'm happy. Might have to change my Tri/TT position, though, since I may have some residual double vision when I look upward... Oh well. More bike...

    Or you could go for a Garmin Vector, or find a crankset that would work with both and go for a Quarq or SRM.

    Most PMs hop fairly easily from one bike to another. Moving my PowerTap between my road and tri bikes is a matter of switching the rear wheel. Sure, it's convenient to have one on every bike to save...

    As for the health benefits, any bike that gets you excited to go ride the hell out of it will be better for you than any bike that doesn't. If geeking out over CF wunder-bikes and dropping $15K on a...

    Exactly. There are plenty of people in the world who would consider it insane to spend $500 on a bike. The vast majority, in fact.

    But I'm comforted by the fact that I can come back after disappearing for almost a year and find the same 4 or 5 basic threads on page 1.

    Don't hate expensive bikes. Love that there are people who enjoy them and that such purchases end up subsidizing the development of all those really nice lower-end bikes. Without the innovators and...

    If I have to sneeze, I need to blow out through the mouth. No holding it in.

    Sorry about the long-term prednisone. I'm down to a tiny dose near the end of my taper and I still hate it.

    I might be cleared for the trainer today. Problem is that it doesn't take much exertion for the face to get flushed, and while things are healing that's swelling that needs to be avoided. And as an...

    2 More weeks and I can get back on the bike.... But it was totally worth it. My Lynskey wasn't enough so I went for the Ti eye socket. Take that, weight weenies.

    1. Your tires don't have a bunch of holes in them to let the water out while they're spinning.

    2. Water ON the tire behaves a little differently than water IN the tire for (hopefully) obvious...

    I know you have to lay it up properly, but if they can shave grams I bet they can lay up a more durable frame too.

    What I don't understand is why the pros don't have heavier versions of their bikes that still make the UCI minimum but are far more durable. The ultralight wunderbikes are useless and usually end up...

    Riding with an Edge 800 and turn-by-turn absolutely rocks, and you won't hear the audible sucking noise of your phone's battery dying during your ride.
