    I find a mirror really opens up my aperture and increases my situational awareness. Particularly in the winter. When I'm cruising along the road with my ear buds in and cranked up, hood up and...

    Take a Look Mirror Scorched my Bacon

    I don't go out much, because it is stressful being so attractive and having to shoo away so many ladies. However, I made an exception recently for a friend and attended a special event. I thought I...

    For the very cold, I'll go to a merino wool cap or fleece ear bands. Not there yet here.

    I'm surprised what little support I see for helmet covers. The external, big shower cap-like ones. I love...

    Sugino makes a nice singe chainring crankset.

    Consider a chainguard from velo orange.

    I had a nice run for a while there but in the end did an Uran. A lesser man might go looking backward toward past dominant performances like, oh, I don't know, Le Tour. Ha ha, oh well, I'll guess...

    Well it's about time someone came by! I don't have the legs for the big finale but I've been dangling there in second place for an eternity with X Merckx the Spot. I thought you all were just going...

    SOP around here. A disappointing absence of trash talkers here on Bike Forums.

    On a TT, yes. On a road stage, ranges from as little as 3% (rare!) to as much as 22% depending on winner's average speed and the category of parcour (e.g. flat or hilly). Sweet spot in the 10-15%...

    Speaking of coming out of nowhere given the past few tours, I don't know whose blood is in my bag, but it is working. For now. Still plenty of race left. Fingers crossed.

    Do they have Orange Julius in the malls any more? A chance to get some refreshment from a young, fashion oppressed waitress and reminisce about the old La Vie Claire days.

    I do like the Eurosport commentary. As long as they don't have Carlton Kirby. He's brutal.

    Yes, Cav cut me deep. I was counting on Gerrans for a nice run in the first week.

    Too early to tell, but Coquard might be the value find.
