    Any good riding in the Princeton area?

    I will be there this weekend and am deciding if I should bring my bike. I would do a 30 to 40 mile ride. Any suggestions on where to go?

    I saw this happen as well. I only have done 15 races and have not joined a team, but two guys I knew in the 5's joined a big team in NYC. One of them used to run 4 minute miles in high school and now...

    I don't really know what any of these things mean - I sort of know about TSS thanks to you guys. I guess that's because I don't have a powermeter and training in the winter has been less than ideal....

    I think it's odd that the new stock CAAD 10 105 comes with 25mm tires - I thought everyone races with 23's except for certain situations? I've never used 25mm's before but would consider it.

    Also,...

    I may be one of the only people on here with a 50/39/30 triple. I like the 30 to climb up hills longer than 1/2 mile so I can spin at 80-90rpm, and I rarely use the 50. Riding on flats I'm in the...

    Issue with comfort on longer rides

    November - 8 hours, 136 miles. Maybe 450 TSS? Riding once a weekend doesn't do much for gains at all. Shocker, I know.

    If you can sustain 15mph on a few mile long hill at a 5% incline, and this is within a 135 mile ride, you should be racing fudgy for pink slips.

    How many calories do you eat in a day to maintain weight? Like 3,500 at least? You must burn at least 7000 calories a week solely from cycling.

    I want to buy whatever brand of bibs you and Matt wear. For 15 hours a week in the saddle, they must be pretty good and way better than what I have.

    6'1 160 lbs. I think I usually wear medium stuff, maybe a size larger for the Italian brands since people say they run small.
