    Walking isn't so bad. You just look/sound like an idiot. Taking the cleats off would do more harm than good. The bottom of the shoe is stiff and slick. The cleat itself actually gives you traction.

    +1. It's a solid deal but I've seen it lower. It all depends on how many pennies you want to pinch and how badly you want to have it now.

    I use a different approach. I have my warm winter tights (PI Amfib) and use leg warmers (PI Elite Thermal) in spring & fall. The leg warmers are very versatile in changing temperature conditions....

    People have different goals in life. Who is anyone to say which goals are more worthwhile? The meaning of life is still up for debate, is it not?

    It wouldn't.

    Can't the shop swap a longer stem on there for a test ride?

    Also, it's easier to find a good place to rent a MTB than it is to find a good place to rent a road bike in case you want to squeeze in a little of both.

    Absolutely. How many miles do you want to do?

    The west side of Mt. Rose is good and has a shoulder. Donner Pass is great. The scenery is fantastic and traffic tends to be low. Those are probably...

    You need one in this case because what you're saying doesn't make any logical sense. Why would any rider who gets free Shimano waste the time and energy to put SRAM on a training bike?

    I never do it intentionally for training. I don't see the benefit. As mentioned, if you want to make things harder there are plenty of gears to choose from.

    I doubt you're really going to notice anything. You'll shave a few grams, but it's probably not the most cost effective way to do so. Shimano is going to claim that it shifts smoother, brakes,...

    Is that true or does the UMCA make you announce your dates ahead of time?

    Either way I do think it makes more sense to just stick to a calendar year, minus one day on a leap year.

    First, I don't think your frame has anything to do with your issue. It's all about the saddle. You could ride the most comfortable frame in the world but that won't make a difference if your saddle...

    I have an Arundel Uno. Just big enough for a tube, tire levers, and a small mini tool. It's been more durable than the other small bags I've tried.

    Exactly. Unlike some cars, nobody cares about a rare bike and it's not going to go up in value over time.

    Were they going to require an official the whole time, too? I helped crew for a state record a few years back and it was certainly an interesting experience.

    I'm still using 9-speed 105 stuff one on of my bikes and I see no reason to hoard parts for it. The internet is a wonderful thing. I haven't broken anything that I haven't been able to replace yet.

    I really like the idea of it, assuming that it actually works.

    I'd go for something like a 40/20 interval- 40 seconds MAX and 20 seconds rest. You don't necessarily need a power meter for something like that and it provides great benefits.

    How much did Kurt and Steve know about each others' attempts as they were planning? Starting later gives Kurt a definite advantage and the cynic in me assumed that was all part of his plan.
