    Quick couple of miles up the lane with the family. Think I was on the road for a total of 15 minutes. Pleasant evening.

    Did a quick out-and-back climb on Xmas eve morning, and I'll hopefully get...

    I got pajamas, a shirt, socks, all things that needed replacing soon anyway, so I get to keep that money and instead I get to spend that cash on bike stuff I want.

    I don't anticipate much. My family know me well enough and cycling little enough to know that anything that's within our usual spend budget I either already have, or don't want.

    Could well be that. You'd presume it's road debris rather than anything I'd pick up at home. Can't imagine how a piece like that would force its way into the rubber without being rolled over at 20ish...

    Thanks, but don't go congratulating me til I've done a few flat-free rides on it.

    Update;

    Tire was down again this morning. Checked, and the new hole was 2 inches away from the patch put on yesterday. A fine tooth comb check of the tire surface revealed a tiny metallic foreign...

    Exactly. So even if you burn twice as many calories/hr running as cycling, if you can cycle more, for more days in a row, than running, then in the long run, you'll burn more calories cycling.

    Let's start over.

    I can ride for 6 hours in a day. And get up the next day and do it again (with liberal application of chamois cream).

    1hr 11 mins is the longest I've ever run in one go, and I...

    I probably misspoke on the "threshold." Lets call it "my 1 hour limit."

    Cyclists can sustain for longer, though. I did an out-and-back today, 1 hr 11mins at threshold. No way I could run at that intensity for that long without my legs seizing up or my knees imploding.

    The gatorskins I wore through had been on for years, but I honestly couldn't tell you their mileage. Very much pre-Strava days, but I wasn't riding nearly as regularly as I do now.

    So Garmindale will basically be riding the same guy's bikes? Allowing for a season or so lead time at least.

    I once took a gatorskin through the rubber and the cords and had to flag down a biker to borrow his switchblade to cut up the blown-out tube for a boot. I've been a bit more vigilant about inspecting...

    I wouldn't think so, depending on the condition. You might just be trying to sell it at the wrong time of year; nobody buys used Al frames as Christmas presents. Maybe in January somebody's granny...

    I've rotated these at least once, so the wear's pretty even on the 2 of them.

    30 miles at a good pace today, and both tires held up well. Here's hoping they keep it together for a while this time.

    Thanks for all the advice. I took off the tire and went over it again and again. The most recent 3 tubes had holes in similar spots, but after turning the tire inside out and wiping down over and...

    GP4000s gone all puncturey lately

    After barely getting about 1000 miles out of the stock Schwalbes on my CAAD10, I replaced with a pair of GP4000s. Big improvement in ride feel, and went the next 2000 miles with no flats at all. Then...

    I got the same one. Didn't read the fine print about the mounting, but decided to stick with the zip-ties anyway. It does look a bit cheap, but it is a very good pump. I ride with a couple of guys...

    It is if the stock saddle hurts like a mutherhugger after 10 miles. First think I replaced on my CAAD10 was the Prologo Buttaxe. I currently have a $10-on-Amazon Vader on there, and at a quarter the...

    Have exactly the same problem with my PIs. No good for rides longer than 20 miles if even.
