    I've been riding 16 months now and got my start seeking encouragement here. On my second bike, a Fuji and have had two fittings. The second was with a highly regarded pro rather than the duty store...

    I'm certainly no expert (otherwise why would I be asking for advice here?) but I'm given to understand some of the more expensive ones have more durable lens material. For example Wiley (and...

    Thanks for the tip. I found one of the threads and looked at Wiley's. I ordered a pair of Wiley X Valor Ops Sunglasses.

    After my post I did some googling and was shocked at the prices of the glasses sold by cycling specialty stores. From what I can glean I need wrap around ones which are UV protective and polarized. ...
  8. Sunglass question for post cataract surgery

    I finally had cataract surgery on my second eye and am looking forward to cycling without fit overs or clip on sunglasses over my glasses. For those of you who have ridden with cataract replacements...

    Fair enough, my apologies. For the record we've supported religious charities financially and with service during all our 50 years of marriage.

    Hard to believe the op wasn't trolling for a response with the request. "Looking for non-wool socks" would have gotten a lot of useful suggestions without the socio/activist digression. As an old...

    Two 1 degree shims and one further degree insert in the front of the right shoe along with a week stretch of
    Aleve did the trick. The tendonitis has toned down significantly after almost 1 month...

    I have the Garmin soft strap. I needed to wash it at least every week or it would stop running because of the accumulation of sweat salts. I switched to the mio link wrist HRM. No more...

    My medical background is arthroscopic surgeries on each knee between 2000-2001. My orthopedic surgeon whom I saw earlier this summer told me no strenuous knee exercises; no quad extensions, no...

    I appreciate your participation. I read your first reference and found the thread helpful. I hadn't mentioned it earlier but sitting on a recliner my right foot (leg?) rotates outward perhaps 15-20...

    Isn't that like riding on a trainer with relatively high cadence? I use arnica gel topically, not internally. Ibuprofen is much more toxic to the body as long as there are no cuts in the application...

    No I hadn't thought about it. I'm open to most alternative means of dealing with pain management. As an engineer I don't see a connection between inflamed tissue and inserting a needle into it to...

    I've been using Quercetin & Bromelain (Vitamin Shoppe) for years for my Spring bronchial allerigies, but honestly it could be a placebo. In Aug I started taking turmeric but it keeps me up at night...

    +1 as well.
  19. Finally, relief from patellar tendonitis

    Yes, I've been over doing it, (6000 miles in 14 months) but the alternative is staying off the bike more. In September it got to be quite painful; I even went to a fitter with a reputation for...

    I agree the Rav 4's were and are butt ugly. We replaced a 2004 Acura TSX (red, 6 speed...sniff!) with our second Subaru Forester. The first one preceded our 2010 TSX and we kept it for over 9 years....
