    It's on my todo list but my training has lately been in even greater tatters than usual.

    Last two years the aid station was just before the Cotharin turnoff.

    By the way, it's not quite "up Yerba Buena, then down Deer Creek." After you turn from Yerba Buena onto Cotharin, there's...

    Count me as skeptical. Expensive bikes are rarely worth as much as their MSRPs, even brand new. Resale value plummets from there, carbon warranty is usually non-transferrable, buyers ask too many...

    I'm not personally familiar with the area, but Olsen-Erbes looks well within my tolerance limits in terms of road condition and visible traffic in Google Street View (as long as it's not rush hour)....

    I saw some great results / improvements training 2 days/week. However, this means 2 days with lots of rest in between, not Sat/Sun (e.g. Tue/Sat), and it requires going all-out every time (which may...

    To be honest, Z06 is pretty unbalanced as is,, and ZR1 only makes matters worse. I actually did a calculation once proving that, under most realistic conditions ( street tires, no wheel spin), in a...

    I got the marathon out of the way, now, need to switch back to cycling.

    For now my only certain goal is KOM series. Maybe Alta Alpina if I'm in decent shape at that point. I've been contemplating...

    I'd want to look at detailed weight breakdown, particularly in case of DA9000 vs Chorus. I compared weights of shifters, FD, RD, and a compact crankset, as published by Competitive Cyclist, and in...

    Are they trying to get to Malibu specifically, or they just need a route through SoCal on the way to SF?

    If they don't need Malibu and they want to avoid PCH, they could take 395 to Temecula...

    There are two principal problems.

    1. There are no good southeast to northwest routes through most of the north OC. There's basically the PCH and a smattering of roads in Yorba Linda / Fullerton /...

    I don't ride in winter (we don't have winter per se) but I find Polar chest strap (with Garmin transmitter) to be working and transmitting seemingly correct data 99% of the time. I don't see how any...

    Same experience here. You also forgot to mention that Peak displays the heart rate with a ~30 s delay. And, to keep the sensor working reliably, I have to tighten the wrist strap to the point that I...

    I think it's the other way around: UMCA wrote rules to fit their attempts. According to Steve's web site, he's been planning this thing since late 2012. UMCA announced the new record category less...

    That's how UMCA defines it, but it's not the most natural choice. Tommy Godwin did 75k in a calendar year. When the dust settles, there can easily be two guys with claims on highest mileage set on...

    Since this whole thing began, I've been pondering about two things.

    1. Having two guys go for the one year record simultaneously is a pretty bad idea. Unless one of them quits early due to an...
