    I just always put my annual pass in a jersey pocket. That's like $80 a year and for the 20 times or so that I use it, it's worthwhile. Not to mention, I now live a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway...

    Tires do stretch a bit over time. I think you'll find that after a few good rides on the new tires they will measure a little bit wider, but it's definitely true that Conti tires tend to have a...

    Bob's method works but has no benefits whatsoever including tube safety. BoSox's method simply works better and the reason is the simple geometry of the situation.

    the Stages power meter only measures left leg directly and then doubles the reading to provide total power. This is either "accurate enough" or deficient depending on how you look at it. I'm not...

    One of the longest running road bike tires you'll find is the Conti Gatorskin. For commuting, I'd try to go wider like maybe 25 or 28 if you can fit it. They will definitely be slower tires than...
