    The point is to win. And I definitely made the top of the grass-eating podium that day.

    The people who whine about how SRAM/Shimano/Campy/whatever sucks and doesn't work right simply don't know what they're doing (no offense to you!). It all works great so long as it's adjusted well,...

    I tried that in a 'cross race, once. Ended up eating a lot of grass.

    There's so much advice in so many books out there. And I think its real-life usefulness is limited in a lot of ways. The...

    There was a crit in Tennessee one year (Johnson City, maybe?) that apparently took the course down an alley to get between two main streets. Complete with a dumpster against a building wall. Yeah....

    Not butthurt except in the literal sense, just mounting a mild defense of the goofy interval names since some people seemed surprisingly (to me) annoyed by them. I wouldn't go around calling them...

    Status: still doing lots of Z3 and a little Z4. Gigantic saddle sore right now. Grr.



    Huh, I find the first two easy-peasy. Which I think is the point. By the time I finish the 4th one, I'm...

    For one thing, what we're calling ZCIs are not all-out 5 minute intervals, so just calling them 5 minute intervals is kind of non-specific. For another thing, saying the ZeCanon was plagiarizing is a...

    I did Plainville once, about six years ago. Even in the Cat 4s at the time (maybe it was letter categories? Don't remember) it was surprisingly tough. Windy, open, super-short. The only course that...

    I just use the lap timer on the Garmin, but then, I haven't done a MAP test. I do the conventional 20 minute test. It's hard, of course, but mentally it's easier for me to pace myself at max effort...

    Just because it's common lore and posted on Wheelbuilder doesn't mean it's necessarily true. I'm not discounting the possibility that spoke butting matters, I'm just saying the deflection difference...

    Richard Hammond is TV-small, not real-life small. That is, he's smaller than his co-presenters, but not actually unusually short.

    The difference in deflection between properly-tensioned single and double-butted spokes is infinitesimal. I don't think that's going to make a difference.

    Still, there's no denying that wheels...

    I weigh about what you do, and I run 23mm tires at about 85r/80f in most crits. Never higher than 90r/85f. Doesn't have any noticeable effect on speed, and traction is much better.

    Release for wheel changes is indeed another problem with v's.

    Conventional v-brakes are difficult to make road levers for. I suppose mini-v brakes are a solution to that, but the other problem with v-brakes is that they just don't modulate as well as calipers.

    That doesn't make a lot of sense. They'll just start making direct mount brakes themselves. Seems unlikely that it's an attempt to shut anyone out.
