    It's not a problem to sit around the house eating Cheetos if you can get stopped, but it can turn into a 20 year gig if you let it!

    Usually, you can get better deals on components buying a whole bike as a package than buying the pieces and putting (or having it put) together.

    Why bicycle in the first place? What not just stand in corner and jog in place for an hour? Or run around the block 18 times? Or go spend 4 hours at a gym?

    The answer for me is that bicycling...

    I wouldn't worry about it a whole lot one way or the other. If you take a break off cycling, do...
