    A number of people have had this surgery, including Arnold Swartznegger. Dismissing the typical surgical risks and/or side effects, this surgery carries a high success rate and you should be able...

    My Shimano drive trains and pedals will stick with me for the long haul. Have DA pedals and they are even better than great.

    Same here, I generally take 2 days off and ride 5. On the 2 off days, I swim for one hour. Of the 5 ride days, at least one will have a couple intervals on it - and these are intervals where I am...

    Keep riding, and do longer distances at higher cadences. During general riding, you should not feel your leg muscles burn. If you do, drop down and gear and spin more. Overstressing...

    I've also had two, one on each side. I opted for no mesh although that may not be an option today since its so standardized in the procedure. But both of mine healed fine and never a moment of...

    With lower priced gas, I drive to more places and ride. This is especially true for riding events in surrounding states. It may not actually increase my monthly milage average but it broadens the...

    My recommendation is to buy new. The price of lower end carbon bikes is very competitive. And if it has Shimano 105, it'll be knocking on the door of the best available. Other than a few grams,...

    I am the exact same size as you. My inseam is 35.5cm. My saddle height is 80cm. I ride a 58 and it is perfect.

    In general, keep your back angle above 40 degrees and your power will not suffer. Younger and flexible fellows can produce good power with lower than 40 degrees but most of us can't due to age...

    12% is not that bad if you have a low gear. You should have the standard compact(50/34) and preferably a 32 tooth cog on your cassette. I run an 11/34 mtb cassette on my bike but, I only use the...

    No automobile has ever been as pretty as the Ferrari Daytona, imho. I had a chance to buy one back in 1972 (used but in great condition) but of course did not have the money. It made an...

    Both good bikes for this type activity. The Tricross has now been replaced by the Diverge, and its an excellent bike for all condition/surface riding. And unlike many other brands, even the full...

    No, its not just your personal experience. I had flats with them too. Nice feeling and roll well, but durability is below par. I went back to Conti 4000 and they are splendid tires. They...

    That event has been on my bucket list for some time and I plan to be there next year. In the meantime, I will be riding Sugarloaf in a couple months (and Buckhill, etc). :D

    26 miles is certainly not a long ride, and hardly long enough to even be considered a "hard ride" unless you're running wide open the entire time. So, I'm led to think this is a pick-up issue with...

    I flatted today on mile 85 of our century - a small glass shard. Of course with my trusty CO2 and Bontrager tube, I changed the flat in about two minutes. Its the first time in about two years...

    My recommendation is to spend a year on a diet plan and get your weight to the normal range for your height. This will provide time to save money too, then buy a Trek 520 or similar. This type...

    Do you have a job? If not then get one. Men can get depressed when only focusing on themselves.

    And start eating a normal diet.

    Slightly off topic but, I would like to see some pictures in and around Nepal if you happen to have some (Flickr, etc). Nepal is on my bucket list but whether I will ever get there is questionable.

    I prefer lightweight rims, no rider weight limits, metal brake tracks and absolute reliability. Found all of it in Dura Ace C24 wheels.......and in spades.
