    I used to be that way. Now I just pay people who are experts in that area to do the work. I've learned that it's generally not worth the time and effort to save a few bucks. And believe me, it...

    What else would I do with my time? Watch TV? There isn't enough on for me.

    Also, my wife has taken up racing, so I now have to budget twice as much for everything. We spent $900 on new kits for...

    If you're going to do it, you might as well go 50mm front and back.

    From an aero standpoint, you will gain more by having a deeper section wheel on the front than the back. But crosswinds can...
