    HIIT are very time efficient which is great if you're short on time. If you're not, riding longer will be more beneficial and easy to motivate yourself to do. Leave the short stuff for the youngsters.

    +1. Ability to climb is directly related to power/weight ratio. Lose weight and improve power and you'll be faster at climbing.

    They never feel any better unless you choose to go slower. For some...

    Once you're sufficiently fit, there really isn't such a thing as 'FAIL'. Your power doesn't go to zero and you fall over. Your body just naturally slows down so maybe a bit of semantics. I've felt...

    No question that HIIT works and there are studies (Tabata providing evidence. Not much fun if you do them properly but time efficient.

    Not the same but there's no problem getting an equally intense workout indoors. Of course, if you want to ride for more than an hour it's much more enjoyable outdoors.

    They're just better at concealing it. Heterosexual men find women attractive and are going to look. Mature males can look while being discrete and not make someone feel uncomfortable but we're still...

    Relax. People here are honestly trying to help an inexperienced cyclist. Worrying or being concerned about a little tread (that will soon wear off) doesn't make sense to anyone which is why most just...

    Wow. Very sorry to hear this news and it hits particularly close to home. Sending positive thoughts and small donation. Hoping for a full and speedy recovery!

    Everything you mentioned about riding on a trainer could be done in a class, the only difference being that you'd be with other people. People are social animals and just like a group ride some gain...

    I would leave them alone and suspect they won't have much impact on your tire. At the point of contact between the tire and roller there shouldn't be any movement if the roller pressure is correct....

    I don't understand why you think what the 'ancient people' did was simple or desirable. It was a poor standard of living requiring one to often go without food.

    If it's wet out I'll usually wipe and lube my chain when I get home so it's good to go the next day. I also prep my lunch the night before. I have a routine for taking my cellphone and keep a credit...

    It sounds like you ride with slow people. The only people I know who've gone to spinning classes are fast. Some of the spinning classes are on computrainers and are every bit as competitive as group...

    It sounds like you're confusing independence with simplicity. Living independently is not simple or enjoyable for most people. I wouldn't mind simplifying my lifestyle but I have no interest in...

    The bike I'm riding now is a 2009 carbon s-works tricross. I bought it with the idea that I might do a few cyclocross races but I've yet to actually race. It's one of the few lightweight carbon...

    How do you know what 'most people' do in a spin class? Loads on most spin bikes are adjustable and it's not difficult to simulate outdoor road conditions.

    Spin classes seem like a reasonable way...
