    I felt that way when I rode the Emonda, a Tarmac, a Madone, a Supersix and a Cervelo S5 all in the same day. All of them were great bikes and would be a big improvement over what I am currently...

    I think you were the one who gave me to idea after reading how you got yours. I never liked the black on black or red/black options for the SL6. I test rode an SL8 and loved it. Now I just need to...

    Just placed my order for a black and white SL frame built up with Ultegra 11 and race lite wheels. Should have photos in early February. The Matte/Gloss black SL6 models currently have ship dates...

    I would go used and target a budget of around $300-400 and leave yourself some money to buy other accessories as needed. If your fiancÚ is racing, get her input and let her and her dad help you...

    Dalava brings up a good point about fit. I actually went to a local bike fit specialist here who put me on a dynamic bike and we played around with different setups until I had one I really felt...

    I wouldn't buy a bike unless I had ridden it (or a close cousin). My experience is very similar to yours. I set a weight loss goal, promised myself I would buy a much nicer bike when I reached my...

    If you are looking for bulk to fill your stomach without much in the way of calories or sugars, leafy greens are a good choice. If you are looking for 1100 calories but not much in the way of...

    I have felt for a long time that gastric sleeve procedures are just a different way to enforce a diet. Instead of "if you eat that you will gain weight", people who get the surgery are told "if you...

    Depending on where you are riding, the later you start, the more you have to deal with traffic. But it is nice when it gets cooler to not have to worry about getting roasted alive by the sun if you...

    The best place to park is at the metro park and ride lot about 200 yards southwest of the shell station on the south side of fm 1093.

    I live about halfway between I-10 and 290, so it is actually a little closer to go to Zube than to Fulshear for me, but I ride both areas pretty regularly. I won't be riding there this weekend or...

    It is a really nice place to start a ride. Lots of parking areas and good facilities onsite. Going north and west from there you can get rides of 20-100 miles on good mostly smooth pavement, mostly...

    You have to understand who the class is directed at. We are very lucky to have instructors at our gym that are almost all cyclists that ride outdoors on their own time. So they build realistic...

    That wind was tough on Saturday. Would not have been so bad if it had been 65 instead of 45. I rode out of Zube park with NWCC, and it was a tough slog coming back down old 290 into the wind.

    You get out of spinning what you put into it. If you are trying to build endurance, then make sure you are actually "enduring" something. If you don't want to quit, you are not enduring. Finding...

    At the ~$1.5 to 2K price point, most of the carbon frames are going to be pretty soft and squishy. At that price, I would strongly consider an aluminum frame with 105 or ultegra components. I would...

    There is a bike shop that will be opening soon in Fulshear. Can't remember the name or exactly when, but I had a friend who knows the owners mention it a while back.

    That is actually what I am planning...to get the SL6 and upgrade the wheels. I rode a Roubaix and a Tarmac (among about 6 others) and like the Emonda's ride better. Just the right combination of...

    Yep, that is the one. The only difference between it and the SL6 is the jump from Ultegra to Dura Ace, but Trek wants $1400 more for the SL8 than the SL6. Not sure why that is, when the two groups...

    I have spoken with both Eddie and Sean out there. I test rode an Emonda SL8 they had in 58 and loved it, but really need a 56. I will be buying the SL6. Or more specifically an SL frame with the...

    I wish they offered an SL frame based Project One. Right now they only have S or SLR as options. So you can build a $3500 bike or a $10000 bike, but not much in between. It is almost like they...

    Yeah, I was hoping the rain would hold off until later in the day on Saturday, but it looks like it is probably going to be an all day chance. I just got a bring new jacket via Amazon last...
