    My feet fall asleep!

    After about an hour of being clipped in, my feet fall asleep. After three hours, even with rest stops, the pain becomes incredible.

    5' 11" or 6', depending on my posture, and probably around 225 right now. I don't particularly care for climbs, but I'm too stubborn to quit going up once I've started.

    Doing an organized MTB ride last Saturday, I was on a long downhill when a rock cut through my sidewall. Got that fixed but with the inch-long cut couldn't air the tire up too much without bulging...
