    Yes. You can't.

    If you can afford SoulCycle you can afford a second set of shoes.

    I have built four sets of wheel using the BHS hubs, mostly the SL211 and UL66 front. They are very well made for the price. I agree about the DS flange spacing being narrower than I like, but it's...

    Or the course could have been dead flat and windless and his power varied. It's impossible to know from this chart.

    At this point go for time, not distance. Don't worry about how fast you are. If you can keep pedalling at a reasonable rpm that's good, because that's what serious cyclists do- no coasting unless...

    Sounds good. At this stage pretty much anything you do will get you in better shape as long as you spend enough time on the bike. Riding at different intensities (i.e. intervals, stuctured or not),...

    The key to big climbs is pacing. You can't go too hard at the beginning.
    You can increase your aerobic threshold by training at or a little below threshold.

    The other thing about big climbs is...

    Friel is kind of advanced for the OP's purposes. It's for racers. I'd suggest Tom Chapple's Base Building book.

    Cleave- good luck today.
    Horseshoe is tough. But the views are worth it. Last year there was a stiff wind so you had a head wind on half of the switchbacks and a tailwind on the other half. The...

    1984 is 29 years ago, so 30 years is not that far off the mark for LOOKs.

    I got LOOKs in '86. SO much better than clips and straps. Safer and more comfortable.

    Yes, on a solo MTB ride. I had a lot going on at work and was distracted. I realized I'd forgotten the helmet about 10 minutes into the ride and went back to get it. A ranger was driving by, saw...

    I tested the 11-32 XG1090 cassette and Wifli derailleur I got for Everest this morning. It's noisy and the chain derails if I back pedal in the big ring and a large cog. Adjusting the tension to...

    I tried a Sram 11-32 XG-1099 and Red Wifli derailleur this morning. I'm not happy with it. There's no adjutsment that doesn't make excess noise in some gears (a problem I have with other Sram...

    I feel that KMC chains work better than Sram. And Shimano cassettes also work better than Sram. They shift better and are quieter. I use them on my Sram bike.

    I have had EIA most of my life but did not get treated until about five years ago. I thought it was normal to wheeze when exercising. Finally it got bad enough that people in races were asking if I...

    Why would he need a 6703 left lever to use a 6703 crank? The 11sp lever and derailleur should work fine on a "10sp" crank. The difference is not that great.

    The problem with Campy is you have to...

    I agree.

    I do not think that analysis (or anything else) is a foolproof way to prevent crashes and did not say that in this thread. If you think I did, you have misread my posts.
