    Every day I ride and see new liquor bottles on my home stretch of road, what concerns me is who is drinking all those bottles of liquor. It is really scary to think how many people are drinking while...

    I don't understand why you would ask that. Because I don't want to trash an $8,000 bike down a gravel road. The Domane is not an off-road bike. It is road racing bike with slightly massaged...

    Buy the Domane. Find a different route. I would not be inclined to ride my Domane on a gravel road. Use you beater on the gravel.

    Agreed. Nibali should change Teams. A fifth doping case taints his victory in the Tour. I think he was clean and his team was limited help, but still a fifth case makes a very bad reflection.

    I am a real Fred. 2nd Generation actually. My Dad and I are both Fred. I have 3 bikes and ridden 7,000 miles this year. I kind of take exception to the whole concept of this Fred thing.

  21. Is - Was Froome really tough enough for the tour?

    It does not seem to me that Froome was really tough enough for the Tour. Great bike rider, no question, but when it comes down to toughing it out, he wouldn't. After the 2nd crash, he hurt, he knew...

    There can only be 1 Alpha male on the Team. Sky has to put it's money with Froome. Wiggins looks OK, but is certainly in the twilight of his career.
