    If my wife and I return to riding our tandem I'd try the TRP's on the back. The BB7s have been very reliable (on Volagi and daVinci), but the TRP Hy/Rd have superior modulation and no change in...

    Kudos to TRP

    Or how to correspond with customer service. I've had TRP Hy/Rd brakes on my Volagi for a year or so having put them on shortly after their introduction. I really like the brakes, big improvement...

    26 miles with some small rolling hills. I'm going to do my birthday ride the day after Thanksgiving (69 miles) when I'm properly fueled up; excessive fueling is my only hope.

    Late afternoon ride, unusual for me. Did 13.4 miles out and back, 800' of climbing. It's nice to have a short ride out of my house with a bit of climbing.

    It's strange in that I'm "only" 6', 200 lbs and while I don't recall my sitbone measurement I'm not overly "wide". I've used a number of conventional saddles that were fine width-wise, but painful...

    I was having issues with perineum pressure. I wound up with an ISM Adamo Century - problem solved; as you point out it's important to watch the videos for proper setup. I tried one of their...

    I like the additional information provided by my Garmin and while I do save my "data" on Strava I don't pay much attention to PRs, etc. I also really like my Cardio bluetooth headset; it lets me...

    It's tough when you go through such a stretch. Try to get some exercise during the week, maybe a 1/2 hour walk each day and look forward to the joy that those weekend rides bring.

    Take out a loan and start buyin' and tryin'. Endless saddle configurations, endless butt configurations, bicycle fit, shorts, etc. all enter into the mix.

    41 miles, 2000'. No way I'm ready for my birthday ride, but it was a beautiful day. By 0900 O was down to summer riding gear.

    30.9 miles, 1500+ feet, 14.7 mph, about 1 mph slower than my "usual"; definitely feeling the effects of sporadic riding. OTOH, it was a beautiful day. Wanted to get out at 0800: arm warmers, leg...

    I don't generally signal. I'll always move over a bit which is a clear indication that I'm aware of the car's presence. The exception to this practice is a driver that is nervous about passing; I...

    Cooler temps are here to stay! Got in 31 miles, 1500' of climbing, 14.9 mph average. I don't usually do this loop CCW, the harder direction, but it's a nice change of pace. I dogged it on the...

    +1 to keeping the triple. I'd vote for a 26t chainring replacement for the 30t you currently have. I spend a lot of time in my 39t chainring and 12-27. 53t chainring is for downhills and no-wind...

    These two rides are right out of my front door. Dead end ranch roads are not in the best condition, however.

    Snuck in 32 miles this am before the rain which is due in about 2 months (if we're lucky). Temps have finally dropped; the last days breaking 90 degrees are now in our rear view mirror.
