    Mtn. biking is much more strenuous, at least for me. A 10-mile ride on gnarly singletrack wears me out, and I can feel my abs are tighter. I don't get that feeling on my road bike, even after 25 or...

    I'm 63, been road biking 8 yrs., but my excess weigh didn't budge until I got on my unused mountain bike this year. I hit some singletrack trails two or three times a week, and in the last two weeks,...

    Started riding a mountain bike that had sat neglected in the garage for years. It's a lot of fun, and a nice change of pace from road biking, but I'm having trouble negotating the rock gardens on our...

    Touring bike for all around use?

    As I get older (I'm 63), my current road bike stretches me out more than I like. I'm thinking about a touring bike to take its place, because they generally have a more upright riding position (so...

    Ahh. So would your advice be to accept the GPS distance measures, but not the speed measures?
  6. Strava max speed vs. bike computer max speed

    I just started using Strava about three weeks ago, and I enjoy it. But one of the things I've noticed is that the maximum speeds Strava gives are different than the speeds my cheap bike computer...

    It looks like I'll be joining you Ibuprofen guys. It appears I have arthritis setting into my left hip. No problem when I ride, but after sitting still for a little while, it hurts like crazy when I...

    I have no such picture, but I'll see about getting one. I do a few pushups and planks -- stopped doing crunches a few years ago.

    Sore lower back

    Had a bike fitting several years ago. Now have developed a sore lower back after riding. It's worse the day after a ride. Does it mean I need to tweak my fit? Is a sore lower back indicative of one...

  11. Shift cable housing won't fit back into the cable stop

    I repaired a flat on my wife's hybrid (the only mechanical thing I'm good at), but when I put the wheel back on the bike, I noticed the shifter cable had come out of the cable stop on the frame. Now,...

    Is there a "B" level ride in your area? I was discouraged that I couldn't keep up with my club ride, and it turned out we had a lot of other people in the same situation. We started a B ride as an...

    I will be there for my first time. Probably doing the 100K, but still considering the full ride.

    Instead of Rosedale, I'll do the LBJ 100 (k) again this year. Probably Outlaw, but undecided about the rest.

    Is this crazy?

    I have an old steel 10-speed I think could make a good rando bike. I also have an old hardtail mountain bike that I never use. So suppose I take the mountain bike crankset and put it on the road...

    I had a similar problem, and now put a small was of cotton between the two toes that were giving me trouble. It has done the trick. No numbness, hot spot trouble flares up much later than before, and...

    I was thinking of a pedal like the Shimano A520 sport/touring pedal. It takes an SPD cleat, but offers a wide platform for the shoe. Thoughts?

    I haven't ridden Pedal Thru the Pines, but I have ridden the MS 150 which travels much of that route - it goes through the state parks with their hills. The hills are fairly steep, but not too long....

    Shoe/pedal recommendations?

    I will be getting into longer distances this year, and I'm thinking of replacing my road shoes and Look-style pedals with mountain bike shoes and SPD touring pedals. Does anyone use this...

    Congratulations for finishing your first century! I don't think I would have started in those weather conditions.

    I did the Outlaw Trail 100 in Round Rock Texas, October, 2008. I had been riding a little over a year, and had never done anything longer than a metric century. It was an organized ride, which kept...

    I made a major mistake on day 2: I was concerned that the morning cloudburst had left the hills in the parks slick, so I and my riding buddy opted to take the lunch express route on Hwy. 71. Never...

    I'm with alohaboy. I've ridden 850+ miles this year, but no ride longer than 55 miles. Butt hurts during most rides. But I think I'm ready for it. If nothing else, I can ride from rest stop to rest...
