    As far as I understand, there isn't any direct suspicion about Nibali thus far, but it's hard to see how this story ends well for him. the taint is a little too close now.

    well, good for you. 3 hours. That's something I simply could not do.

    (Though I don't believe in any useful conversion between time on a trainer and "miles".)

    Before I bought my trainer (Kurt Kinetic Road Machine - I'm very happy with it BTW), i used to ride stationary bikes at the gym. I hated those even more, in part because the saddle always felt...
  7. Any body else hating and loving their trainer this winter?

    Some winters I ride outside, some I don't. So this winter I'm just down in the basement on the trainer, when I can force myself.

    We all hate our trainers, right? An hour outside riding is not...

    I guess there would also be a (d) it's a major race, like a TdF stage or something like Milan-San Remo, etc.. One where there are lots of viewers and his sponsors care that he is up front competing.

    Apparently he sprinted up a 17% grade in the big ring. Or so he claims. That's a lot of watts.

    Hard to understand your perspective - there are plenty of cyclocomputers that track cadence - RPM - so long as you buy the right accessory. But maybe none that measure what you think cadence is.

    Yes, you're right - Schleck did it. It was the ride of his life and the closest he came to true glory.
