    These are the two areas I'd investigate.

    If the problem turns out to be the former, get more air down there and don't apply anything that will moisturize -- you might consider shaving everything...

    Bike schwag is like software -- it is always better before it is released than afterwards.

    These kind of cuts are common. Unless the inside is messed up, you don't need to do anything. If the cut goes all the way through, a tire boot will ensure that the cut doesn't mess up other tubes you...

    If you switch to riding a recumbent and wear loose fitting shorts, your boys will be totally ventilated. Shave everything clean to improve ventilation and sweat evaporation even more.

    Looking down on someone is never called for.

    But before joining a club ride, it's essential to see what the club is like so you know if it's likely to be a good match. A couple questions about...

    So you're saying you rode the Chilly Hilly in jeans?

    If I go to a flatter group ride that has 1,000 people in it,I'd expect to see some people on hybrids, on MTB's, wearing athletic attire for...

    Sure, but you'll probably overheat. If you really don't want to wear cycling shorts, running shorts or even basketball shorts will work better. If you really want to have your legs covered, something...

    It has nothing to do with image -- I ride 'bents which definitely doesn't earn you points with the fashionistas. When I started cycling distances in the early 80's, I lived in the midwest so wearing...

    Or they'd wonder what the heck you're doing there. Why would you go into another environment just to purposely do things differently?

    FWIW, I wouldn't ride close to someone in jeans because I'd...

    I've worn Alcheras for years and been in one significant crash during that time.

    It's a good helmet and the ventilation is decent. I'm curious how it compares with the Echelon.

    There's more to a helmet than simply cushioning a blow to your noggin. There are significant differences in ventilation, adjustability, and general comfort.

    Try any of the Shimano RT shoes. I wear RT82 right now, but there are others. They're designed for touring and are smooth rather than having an aggressive sole for climbing dirt hills. Very walkable...

    Not necessarily. My first ride that was over 15 miles was 130. It helped that all the miles were flat in nearly perfect conditions but I felt fine afterwards. My wife's first ride over 5 miles was...

    For longer and tougher rides, they're still a useful tool even if your goal is to just get by (i.e. maximizing performance isn't important). Doing things by feel doesn't always work. It's easy to...

    The tape lasts years and its job is to protect the tube from sharp edges. It doesn't do anything related to holding air in. BTW, get good quality cloth tape -- don't get the cheapo plastic stuff. It...

    No worries. One thing I hadn't mentioned was that a big part of my motivation for posting was to figure out how to talk to my bro.

    He's not a particularly cooperative patient, and while I share...

    The main reason is to wrap his mind around the problem. From what I can tell, he suspects his doc might be trying to optimize something that is not in his best interests such as advocating an...

    Riding with blood thinners

    About a year ago, my little brother was put on blood thinners after a heart attack. He wasn't in particularly good shape, but he was moderately active. His main source of exercise was his commute...

    What works at 32F doesn't really work at 10F.

    At 32, I typically wear a base layer, long sleeve jersey, wind breaker, midweight tights, balaclava, gloves, wool socks. 10F calls for a thermal...

    Except for when bikes are set up identically, you'll notice that the muscles you use are a bit different. How different is a function of how different the bikes are.

    My experience is that you get more sensitive to stings over time. When I was a kid, I had allergy shots for a wide variety of things -- that really helped with my asthma.
