    No worries--the shirts are indeed tongue-in-cheek! Though I do maintain that aero stuff helps everyone be faster (not just front-of-pack riders), and if someone has the money to spend on that stuff,...

    Haha, we were actually on your wheel when the flat occurred! Lana commented that y'all did a smooth piece of riding to get out of the group.

    In 60 degree water, wear a wetsuit or risk hypothermia if you're not properly trained to swim in those kinds of temperatures. Regardless of the distance.

    Yes. With those wheels and handlebars, $575 is very fair for that bike. If you do buy it, you may want to take the bike to the bike shop to make sure there are no hidden problems in the frame. ...

    Good points Ian. Remember, installing a Fast Forward seatpost on a road bike changes the handling of the bike significantly. The weight distribution is changed drastically with the forward post,...
