    That actually looks rad, if I had any idea about gaming I'd probably be a tad more up to speed.

    Well, I'd be inclined to do it once, do it right. Decide which bike you spend more time on and get the PM for that one. For a lot of people that will make the road bike the most sensible place to...

    5 x 5's the Texas method from practical programming, though it has one heavy day, one moderate day, one light day if you're training 3 days a week. (Public service announcement, HTH, etc)
