    Great series of photos! I live so reasonably close to the San Gabriels and yet I so rarely ride there.

    I have had two heart attacks, the first in Dec. 2008. It was mild and I think triggered in part by some serious and on-going two-year long stress. Not to mention my dad had heart disease. I got rid...

    I've rented bikes in the valley. They'll be available in May. However, as mentioned above, the bikes are cruisers; they come with balloon tires and they're heavy bikes. On the plus side, once you...

    You might be right. There's less than a 3 gear inch difference. But I live near some steep hills, not necessarily long, but steep. Like 14% grades and up. They're the kind of hills on which I've...

    I'd like the 18T because I'd like close shifting for riding on the flats. At the lower end of gearing, I want relief from monster hills, and close-spaced gears in that situation, for me, aren't...

    I have bibs, I like my bibs. Maybe because I'm not overweight shorts work well for me, too. Next time, OP, go for a good pair of shorts. Meanwhile, you'll get used to the bibs.

    I go back and forth with one of my bikes. It's a 1961 Follis (or at least that's when I acquired it, new). I sometimes put toe clips on its, sometimes I go clipless.
  17. 12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-21-24-27: Can I get one outside of Campy?

    Maybe it's just me, but I wish Shimano or Sram had simply added an 18-tooth cog to their wider-range cassettes (traditionally 12-27). From what I've googled, Campy has done this, but I don't want to...
