    WOw, Haleakala is the second toughest road climb in the USA? I did it back in December and had no idea. Grade was never that hard but altitude + sunlight was brutal

    Dear Local Bike Shops:

    Our relationship has hit a rough patch. I appreciate what you do for me, the community, and for cycling in the area, but you seriously have to cut back on the guilt trips....

    Exactly the frame I remember lusting after as a boy, except I liked the white ones. Kestrel was the s*** back then!

    I bought the $30 Nashbar bib shorts. They are so cheap...the stitching on them is awful.

    ++++ This.

    I did it in December on a C-Dale compact double. The grade isn't really that hard, but the switchbacks are endless. THe thing that really got me though was the sunlight, the cold, and...

    Humiliated after crashing

    I've been road cycling for two years and have probably 8,000 miles on my two bikes. I've ridden on beautiful rustic highways, climbed Mt. Haleakala in Maui, toured crowded PCH from LA to Ventura,...

    Check to see if the pedals have a tightening/loosening mechanism. If they don't, no biggie, the pedals will break in after a time.

    Other than that, know this: You will fall. Everyone falls. At...

    Alright cool. Consensus seems to be that I littered. My conscience was right. I'm glad I went back and picked it up.

    That said, I will pay the "Don't Litter!" message forward by delivering a swift...

    2007 Jamis Quest I got as NOS in 2008. 2000 miles later I've had zero issues. Bike came with almost full 105, FSA compact crank, Mavic Aksium wheels and Ritchey everything else. The best part? I got...

    Awesome vid. I was just there in December. I did half the West Maui loop (ran out of food and called wife), I rode from Kannapali to Wailea, and I summited Haleakala. Best cycling of my life.

    Did I litter?

    During the Tour de Palm Springs (largest charity ride in the West, 10,000 strong) I carelessly tossed an apple core in the desert while on a break on the side of the road.

    He looks like a ******bag who belongs on Jersey Shore. I hope he rots in jail, just like Marco Valencia, the 20 year old 3-time DUI driver who killed a local club rider in my area last July.
