    What works at 32F doesn't really work at 10F.

    At 32, I typically wear a base layer, long sleeve jersey, wind breaker, midweight tights, balaclava, gloves, wool socks. 10F calls for a thermal...

    And yes, that was her dinner. This was taken the night before she had a couple teeth pulled. I figured she'd appreciate it if their last task was worthy of remembrance.

    Except for when bikes are set up identically, you'll notice that the muscles you use are a bit different. How different is a function of how different the bikes are.

    My experience is that you get more sensitive to stings over time. When I was a kid, I had allergy shots for a wide variety of things -- that really helped with my asthma.

    I had been stung many...

    I get this from time to time. I "blip" them a couple times to make sure they don't have their high beams on by accident. If they don't respond after two blips, I figure they can't see their light...

    I've toyed with the idea and used to be a distance geek, but managing my body for so long and dealing with nutrition, sleeping by the side of the road, and feeling yucky no longer appeals. More fun...

    It can take surprisingly long for stuff to heal. Two weeks out, I'll sometimes still have swelling and the stings can still be open. I've taken more insects in my helmet and jersey than I'll ever...

    You don't need 1000 lumens to see in areas lit by street lamps and drivers definitely don't need that much to see you. However, as has already been suggested, the problem is with the aim of your...

    The main thing is to relax and follow where the bike wants to go. When you've lost your rear, you'll turn into the skid. Don't use your brakes unless you want to lay the bike down and don't fight...

    Depends on how far you have to climb. Personally, I'm not a fan of mating a 12/25 with a compact because there is practically no overlap. If you have a 10 speed cassette, 12/27 is *exactly* the same...

    If they didn't counter after you suggested $1300, the answer for your purposes is no. If they did and you were happy with what they offered, the answer is yes.

    Fit is very personal and it might not be what you expect (7.5cm of drop turned out to be my sweet spot). The best way to find out what you like is to try a bunch of...
