    There is also an impact on steering input. It's very small so we might say "perception based" but the same could be said for total weight and aerodynamics.

    I put it on front if I sometimes ride on dirt or otherwise looser or rougher surface where I want better traction in front. Otherwise the wider tire goes in back.

    I know I do, and then let it run down to under-inflated. At some point in that cycle my pressure is exactly right and I enjoy perfection. Keeping it in some narrow range, that might not happen.

    If so they'll be confused now because I added another computer, converting one to display cadence/10. Unless he reads this of course.

    Increasing the size or shape of the contact with the ground does not increase rolling resistance, not directly anyway. The resistance, or most of it, is from bending the casing. The contact patch...

    Ditto that question. I was day-dreaming about what it would take to print a shifter mechanism to attach around brake levers - it would actually be tempting to try something like that with your own...

    With the online service I tried your printout with plastic has to fit in a box 65cm by 55cm so you might be able to print one in two pieces. They will print steel within a volume of 76x39x39 so that...

    That must be awesome, to just print out a clamp or bracket when you need one.

    Make a model out of wire, cardboard, ducktape whatever then measure it. You can also draw whatever you're mating it to and use the CAD software to manipulate the objects together, but I need to...

    I'm guessing that you've trained with more of the flat rides than the hilly ones, and are better at keeping up a high level of sustained effort with them.

    Next level DIY

    I just discovered this - well, I knew in theory but it could get addicting. You just mock up an idea, measure it, draw it and send it off to a 3-D printer! I used Shapeways.com

    As I see it, paying double for a logo font is kind of girly, and a real man doesn't care.

    I normally wouldn't swap a tube at home just to have the new one as the spare. Just put the patched tube back in the saddle bag, carry a patch kit and you're covered.

    I used to have a short section of dirt road, so I always used 32's. I no longer deal with that so I go with narrower. To be honest I can't tell much difference in 25 and 28 in the same tire.

    I...

    FYI

    I had the same thought this weekend, and after some thought decided that DIY for the full enclosure would be too unweildy. I have a standard road double and 8-speed cassette, which is quite a...

    Good point, I guess the hijack spun off of avoiding aluminum frames because of their "4-5 year life span".

    Does anyone, even believing that the frames get less stiff over time, agree with that...

    Right.

    I'll also reiterate that I am skeptical of the premise to begin with, that of a statistically significant change in stiffness over time. Excepting micro-faults - tiny fractures due to...

    This I have heard, but I don't believe it either. The elasticity will not change, until it breaks.

    Something to bear in mind: Claris=8 speed, Sora 9-speed, Tiagra 9 and 10 speed, 105 is 10-speed and now 11 speed. Upgrading and changing speeds is more than a one piece at a time process.

    Spring refresh, new chain, new cassette, new rear derailleur and switched to the summer tires. Trued the wheels, minor probably placebo adjustments. It feels good!

    Metric calendar? Today is day 85 of the year. It started at 7,257.6 Kilo-seconds into the year if you prefer, but to me the day unit still makes sense.

    Aluminum frame has a lifetime of less than 5 years? I've never heard that before.
