    Road -> MTB conversion?

    I have an old road bike (8-9 years) that has 9 speed Shimano Ultegra kit on (it has a braised to the frame attachment for the front derailleur).

    As I have stated in other posts my helmet has saved me from at least one cracked skull/concussion. I was clipped by a motorist opening their car door, went flying and landed on my back. My head hit...

    I think that TdF riders are only allowed to remove their helmet on the final ascent of a mountain top finish.

    I don't need to wear a helmet in my car as I have full surround airbags. I am also...

    One argument that I would use against mandated cycle path usage is that a cycle path is fine for weak cyclists or children. But it is dangerous for a fast cyclist to use a cycle path. They are in...

    I have used plastic bags over socks. I.e. just the layering approach. That was for sub zero Centigrade.
    Similarly plastic bag under the helmet worked a treat too.

    I agree with the original poster. People should wear helmets. The reasons why?

    I actually advocate the elliptical cross trainer/cycling/walking approach to staying fit.
    I recommend using the cross training facilities when cycling outside is not possible or a bit harsh.
    I also...

    I actually prefer riding my MTB on the roads. I find it more comfortable. It certainly isn't as easy a road bike but I cycle for good health rather than getting anywhere fast.

    I hate to say this but a lot of those photos make the food look really gross. Yuk.
    And I even have a very sweet tooth and enjoy the occasional cake - just have to cycle it off.

    I doubt there is a meaningful weight/power measurement.
    Obviously larger muscles are more powerful.
    However I suspect that most TdF riders are in the 70-80kg range (154-176 lbs).

    Should take no more than 5 minutes to knock up something like I have.

    All you need is the columns + MIN/MAX/AVERAGE/STDEV/SUM functions over the column data.

    Go on - exercise your brain.
