    Go back to the bike shop you visited and buy from them. They put time (money) into you, to let you learn the difference in bikes. It would be offensive to take what you learned from them and spend...

    I race, but I consider it a success if I've been active: closed breaks, bridged, attacked, etc... AND not gotten dropped until the last corner or two. But actually...

    That's what I was thinking. I don't know how far along Ridge Route riders would be allowed to go. In fact, couple years ago, when we got to the GMR/GRR intersection (we had come up the front-side of...

    You're confusing what base is for and how to train it. In your race, I'd be willing to bet you had no trouble responding to the acceleration out of the first or maybe even second corners (or more?)....

    You have to make sure you have a good base, a good foundation of miles, and miles at a good effort. Aim for some fast-paced group training rides and work your way to riding at the front. This...

    Castelli sells alot of black/white kits. Well, predominantly black/white. They also throw in red accents here & there. I get mine usually through Competitive Cyclist's sale page.

    Should have asked him which section. Just another example of a cop, oblivious to the actual bicycling laws, making up something out of whole cloth.

    230# isn't all that much, about 30-40#'s less than me. But, it may still be a bit much for 16/20 spokes. I personally haven't had the greatest luck w/low spoke count wheels, even though they were...

    Really? I hadn't thought of that. Would the over-tightened pedal just pinch the carbon, causing a weak spot? (But the pedal threads into an aluminum--I'm assuming--insert within the carbon arm.)

    Splits Trainer - GPS Multi-Sport Trainer Have it, haven't tested/tried it yet. Doesn't do a "ghost" image, though. You'd need somebody on side of the road taking video for that.
