    It really depends on how much you're riding and what your goals are. Personally, I like to do a lot of climbing, so I try to keep my body weight low. I do upper body lifting once or twice a week and...

    Seems like your only option at this point. They could test the portion below where the big scratch mark is and see if it comes up when you use a clean brake pad.

    Or they could look at your...

    I got a cheap carbon saddle on eBay earlier this year (some version of this) for ****s and giggles. Believe it or not, it's pretty comfortable and it hasn't exploded on me yet.

    +1 on that.

    I have noticed a difference in headlights when it comes to blinking vs. steady. Drivers seem to see the blinking headlight much better. I'm sure the same goes for rear lights, but...

    I've had a few similar experiences. A few years back I was riding in the 45-50mph range and I got a high-speed shimmy. It was the first time that had ever happened to me and it scared the crap out of...

    I broke a stem and a fork. The fork doesn't look too bad in the picture, but you can tell it's broken if you squeeze on it.

    I tried both of the same tire in 23 and 25 and really couldn't tell much difference. In theory I could lower the pressure on the 25s, but I just hated the feel of that. Most of the roads I usually...

    Don't forget that the Worlds are in Richmond this year. In many ways that's better than a TDF stage coming here could ever be.

    Yeah, seems weird that there hasn't been an update. There was a ton of power meter news around the time of Interbike and I haven't heard much on most of them since then. Is Brim Brothers ever coming...

    I'm biased, but if I had a week in the west I'd do a combination of the Death Ride and the Everest Challenge. Start in Reno, do Geiger Grade and Mt. Rose. Go to Truckee the next day and do Donner...

    Landis in 2006 comes to mind, but the main reason it worked is because everyone thought he was crazy and that it would never work.

    Schleck in 2011 is another one that comes to mind.

    Agreed. My commuter bike is an old rigid MTB that I converted to drop bars. It's a little slower than the road bike, but it's good enough to get the job done. I've taken it on some long rides during...

    Routes to Yosemite

    A and B

    Which is better? I like the extra climbing in A, but how does the traffic compare? Is there a 3rd way that's better? (No BART allowed.)

    That was the whole point of this thread in the first place! I'm not sure why it went into the weird direction it did. I think I'll break it up state-by-state and go to the regional forums.

    If you're following a course on the Garmin 510 you can display "distance to go". Not the cheapest computer, but I love mine and battery life is great on it.

    Pretty simple: time is limited. Starting in the Bay Area saves me a day of driving to San Diego or Oregon, for example. Tie is limited, so 3,000 miles keeps me at a comfortable mileage per day range....
