  1. Why? I go ride on the road to work on my bike...

    Why? I go ride on the road to work on my bike handling skills. I go to the gym to work out at night when I can't go ride safely on the road. The spinning classes are free with my gym membership. ...

    How does riding on a trainer by yourself in the basement improve your bike handling?

    One thing a bunch of folks have mentioned, but it is worth saying again, is that you need to have a good instructor. I have been totally spoiled at our gym, because while they are all "Spinning"...

    We actually have quite a few 60 and 90 minute classes at our gym. You might ask at your gym and see if they would do some longer classes.
  5. I personally think most long duration standing...

    I personally think most long duration standing work on a spin bike is pretty useless. Standing to climb on the road is less efficient than seated climbing. So unless it is just physically too steep...

    I have that jacket in the non-convertible version. It is a good jacket, but it is a little loose at times. My experience with convertible jackets is that I never use them as a vest. I tend to wear...

    Yeah, there are definitely things some instructors will ask you to do that may not be right for your body. It is just like any other activity...or group ride for that matter...you have to honor your...

    Spin classes make a great high intensity compliment to longer road rides to build base. You can do the low intensity long duration work on the trainer or on the road. But for putting in the high...

    What are you eating before you ride, if anything?...

    What are you eating before you ride, if anything? If you are expending 400-600 calories per hour and only consuming 100-200 (a banana or a gel), you are not replenishing what you are using. I was...

    I think you got the SL8 for only $300 more because it was sized for a Giraffe. ;) I tried to make a deal with get the SL8 my LBS had in stock, but they wouldn't budge off of the $4500 price. ...

    I think part of it is the cross-compatibility between the different groups. If you had a 10-speed group, you could upgrade parts of the group like the rear derailleur without having to replace the...

    For your first question, I would suspect that as you get later into long rides, you have exhausted your glycogen stores and your heart is working harder to provide energy through other pathways. For...

    No question Lance screwed him over pretty bad...but when I see somebody like Lemond that just can't seem to get along with anybody he gets into business with, I always think of the saying "The common...

    Makes me think the original frame production line was not able to keep up and they had to add another line or a new supplier to keep up, and had to pay more per frame for the extra capacity. Or they...

    Sounds like slow frame construction on the SL line. I just called the shop and my date has slipped from early Feb to late Feb.

    The bottom end carbon bikes just usually aren't that exceptional compared to a high quality aluminum frame with good components. They usually have to compromise the components too much to reach...

    Ok, I will bite...why sell a Caad-10 so that you can buy a new Caad-10? Why not just upgrade the one you have? If you are going to upgrade, then upgrade. Don't sell one bike at a discount because...

    The bike I am currently riding is a 2003 Steel Marin Argenta bought off of Ebay for $525 or so about 10 years ago. It has a Shimano Tiagra triple group on it. It has been a good and sturdy bike, if...

    I rode a Tarmac and an Emonda one after the other and both were great bikes. Very stiff, very responsive to pedaling. I chose the Emonda, simply because it was slightly smoother. The Tarmac seemed...

    My problem wasn't so much the overall wear, but that the vittorias would get cut so easily. By 1000 miles or less, there would be enough large cuts on both front and rear that I didn't feel...
