  1. I'm sorry, are you being funny or are you...

    I'm sorry, are you being funny or are you actually offended?
    If you're offended, whatthe heck did I do!?
  2. I personally don't think that's a subject that...

    I personally don't think that's a subject that can be dealt with purely in a text-based setting. As previously stated, I believe that some things, like squats and deadlifts in the gym, or proper...
  3. I think at this point the best help I can ask for...

    I think at this point the best help I can ask for is links to YouTube (or other) instructional videos on what is proper sprint form/technique.
    I recognize that like, say, squats and deadlifts in the...
  4. I can appreciate all that but I'm not comfortable...

    I can appreciate all that but I'm not comfortable with people on the Internet knowing where I live, what my real name is, etcetera.

    354751

    I think we need to be on the same page, terminology-wise.
    This isn't my bike, just a handy image.

    During sprints or any other short, high-intensity efforts, or during high-speed...

    Force reps?

    Changed my mind about this, please don't post.
  8. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it greatly,...

    Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it greatly, but I just don't have any way to take the sort of pictures/videos you want. I have no one here to help me, and ideally you'd want to see me actually...
  9. For what it's worth: It's not like I'm...

    For what it's worth:
    It's not like I'm consciously thinking much at all when trying to sprint during a race, and
    My life has been, to be blunt about it, so effed up the last couple years, that I...
  10. As I recall, in the drops.

    As I recall, in the drops.
  11. I should probably also point out that I was never...

    I should probably also point out that I was never athletic my entire life, and this is the most athletic I've ever been.
  12. I have ZERO dollars since I don't even have a...

    I have ZERO dollars since I don't even have a job.
    By the way this isn't even an imminent decision. Unless I won the lottery I wouldn't even be thinking about a different bike for at least a year,...
  13. Wouldn't I want a red bike for winter riding...

    Wouldn't I want a red bike for winter riding because it's warmer, a blue one for summer because it's cooler, a white bike if I want to shave my head, and a black one for urban downtown crits?
  14. Of course I was polite. They seemed concerned...

    Of course I was polite. They seemed concerned that 'installing' anything on the bike would 'scratch the frame'. They seemed to be a little annoyed with my actually wanting to have some basic saddle...
  15. OK, I believe you. What should I be looking at,...

    OK, I believe you. What should I be looking at, then?
    Despite what some might believe, I'm not looking for an excuse to spend thousands of dollars on a bike, I'd be just as happy winning races on my...
  16. For what it's worth, I'm not rich, I'm trying to...

    For what it's worth, I'm not rich, I'm trying to keep training and racing on essentially no money, and all I'm interested in is the best bang-for-the-buck performance-wise. To re-iterate the original...
  17. My cadence has always been pretty good because...

    My cadence has always been pretty good because unlike so many casual/recreational riders I see every day, I always understood the benefit of having a higher cadence and an efficient pedal stroke....
  18. Was that really such a rude request for me to...

    Was that really such a rude request for me to make? I even offered to supply it myself, and they didn't want to do it. All I wanted was something quantifiable and non-subjective to take away from the...
  19. Well, even if I manage to not end up homeless in...

    Well, even if I manage to not end up homeless in a couple months and actually find work, I won't be buying any $10000 bikes anyway, or even a $5000 bike. I'll be lucky to find a way to afford a $3500...
  20. Wasn't implying that you were implying anything...

    Wasn't implying that you were implying anything about my ex-coach; just trying to answer questions I anticipated. ;-)

    See, what you're saying about the bike I have now are the things that I've...
  21. It's entirely possible. It's not like what...

    It's entirely possible. It's not like what coaching I've had was hands-on, it was managing my training schedule for me, and that was about 3 years ago and I literally have no money to pay a coach to...
  22. This is part of the question so far as I'm...

    This is part of the question so far as I'm concerned; it's the only road bike I've ever owned so I have nothing else to compare it against. The only other bike I've owned since I started riding again...
  23. Yeah, I'm leg pressing 1105 for 3x8 right now,...

    Yeah, I'm leg pressing 1105 for 3x8 right now, finishing up Fall strength training, this week and next week and I'm done with that. I don't lack for force, and much as you are I'm trying to...
  24. I don't think that'll help. I'm fairly well...

    I don't think that'll help. I'm fairly well convinced, with the way things have been going the last couple years, that I'm well and fully damned already, and I just haven't received the official...
  25. Well, I'll be damned.

    Well, I'll be damned.
