    Insightful commentary, Carleton. Speaking of which, who is this new commentator? I can't say I'm a fan yet, but maybe he needs some more experience in the position.

    +1 I recall somewhere Mr. Rippetoe saying something to the effect of, 'As a general rule, you shouldn't move your cervical spine around while carrying a load'. Or the rest of your spine for that...

    I like using doofy spin bikes at the gym for warmup for lifting weights. It's nice to see what my cadence is, because I'm old school and none of the bikes I own have any kind of telemetry. Otherwise,...

    For a mass start and cold/wet ride lid, I've been considering the Evade for some time now. Looks are of course subjective, but I prefer it to the Air Attack, my next consideration. I'm curious where...

    I went and tried the grip tape, and does indeed chew up the tires. But it also works very well! I did a few sprint intervals, and the tire afterwards was smooth, warm and sticky. It seemed to clean...

    I'm gonna go ahead an resurrect this thread for the sake of asking a simple, but related question. I just got myself a Kurt Kinetic mag trainer with adjustable resistance. There's a lot of slip when...

    My goal this season was to get my cat 3 upgrade. That didn't happen.

    What did you do well?

    I put myself at the head of the race as best I could and as often as I could. I also discovered that I...

  13. Fork replacement needed - suggestions?

    Ugh.

    So in a totally uninteresting way I cracked the fork on my 09 Fuji Track Pro. The crack runs almost all the way around the blade of the fork, the paint is chipping and applying a bit of...

    I'm curious what tubulars would be appropriate for racing primarily at Kissena and T-Town. I'm guessing whatever tire would be appropriate for those tracks wouldn't necessarily be suitable for Forest...

    Interesting. I'd had no idea that the pattern I tightened the bolts could have any effect. I usually do it in a star pattern because I'd heard that I should, but never knew why. Lately I've been more...

    No, it's tighter than I've seen a lot of people keep their chains, though not so tight as cause undue friction. Would this tightening and loosening of the chain accelerate wear on the cogs and rings?

    I got a few nice shots of my bike on its new wheels from Velomine when I went to the Forest City Velodrome this past January.

    What is wrong with my drivetrain?

    While spinning my bike on the trainer, I noticed a lot of 'play' in my chain. At first, I saw that it gained and lost slack with each crank revolution:

    Bodyweight: I'm 5'10" and just under 160 lbs at the moment. Contrast that to last year when I was ~185/190. I'm focusing more on being an enduro, since it's more useful for road and 'cross racing. I...

    I hope no one minds if I hijack this thread a bit.

    Recently I swapped parts from my Fuji to build up a commuter and as a result, the Fuji now lacks a set of training wheels. I've been wanting to...

    To be honest, I've wanted Omniums for some time now, and their price is a plus. What's putting me off are their flaws and the fact that at an elite level, Suginos can be found amongst all the...

    Maybe it won't make much difference. But I thought it was a cool idea :) . The Omnium with BB would cost me about $160. The Sugino 75 cranks would cost me $166. If I remember correctly, the Sugino...
