    Good shorts help a lot, certainly, but bike fit, saddle fit, riding style, etc all play in. Personally I'd be uncomfortable doing 50 that didn't have some significant climbs to get me up out of the...

    Haha... yeah. Suppose so.

    I mostly ride alone or with a buddy. I haven't done any paceline-style group rides. I had to break my buddy of the habit of getting on my wheel without telling me; it's...

    I just swapped my 10-speed 105 winter bike to an 11-32 cassette to go with the 50/34 front end, so I guess that tells MY story. :)
