    One option to hold you over until next year is to byt:
    1)a whole bunch chemical warmers (they're pretty cheap, ~ 60c each from MEC),
    2)decent booties,
    3)a few big wool socks (to wear around your...

    I think they would work fine. I've exceeded the tire size spec on rims often, and haven't had any bad results. Just make sure as you're pumping the tire up for the first time that the bead is well...

    The problem with replacing the stem with one that's straight is that it would change your handlebar height (if you previously had an angled one).

    That is an interesting design. It clamps onto the stem right?

    My guess is that they were replaced by the Air Stryke, which I think would be more compatible with different setups. (eg. I don't...

    Replacing insoles

    I have a relatively old pair of Lake MXZ-302's and as part of the insole, the have a layer of what is pretty much bubble wrap. The problem is that all the bubbles are popped/compressed around the...

    The one thing that people rarely mention when considering triples is that you can swap out the standard middle and top ring, which changes the argument of "a compact crank can cover 90% of the range...

    The shorty bars do also get used in draft legal triathlons, a lot of the ones for that purpose come with a bridge between the two extensions for safety. Mine don't have one so I bought a 3rd party...

    If you haven't already gotten one, a power meter is probably a better investment than disc wheels.

    I've never used 700x38 marathon pluses, but I've used 25,32 and 35mm ones, and I've found that they get a bit easier to mount as they get larger (although I did mount the 25's on a different rim).

    I've never tried it, but it's an interesting idea. I've always been tempted to get a 54T or higher so my gear steps would be smaller at the same speed.

    Probably the best way to do find out if you're improving is is to find flat out and back route, and do a full out time trial every little while. Ideally it should take at least 20 minutes, and it...

    Aerobars are faster. How is that not a valid reason to use them?



    Incase you missed it, the OP said he's not planning on doing any/many group rides.
