    I put a Spyre on the front of my NoCom late last summer, and got another Spyre for the front of my Baron over the winter. Neither has more than a couple of rides on it so far, but from what I see so...

    My yellow bikes have beat lots of red ones. There's something to be said for not waving a flag in front of the bikes you've passed, though. Yellow and red both make highly visible targets whereas...

    That's how I ride, too. If I pick up some speed on a downhill, I feel as if I have to maintain that new higher speed or I'm a failure. And every time I get a new high speed on a new downhill, I have...

    I drove the ALCAN/Alaska Highway in both directions. As remote as some of the places in Canada were, and I'm talking several hundred miles between outposts, Siberia would be several times worse. I...

    I recommend a recumbent trainer, too. Very low chance of falling (basically you'd have to trip or pass out.) While it requires different muscle usage, most recumbent riders report that recumbent...

    I guess I'd have already done this, but call him one more time. Give him maybe 4 weeks to put either the shoes or your deposit in your hands or you will begin taking steps, beginning with a report to...

    Of course there are stupid questions. For one, "Can I ask you a question?" ranks right up there.

    I'm up to 22 miles at a time. Give me about 2 months. It's slow going every spring after being off the bike for 4+ months due to white stuff. Quite often my first century of the season is if I do...

    I've sprinted until my vision was going gray around the edges, and I've ridden so hard I couldn't get up off the bike afterwards, but I've never barfed from it.

    Your last paragraph doesn't go with the second. "Work on the engine" or words to that effect are nothing more than a platitude. At 25+ speeds, power requirements quickly become impractical if not...

    Catrikes are aluminum, and as such, they share a trait with other aluminum bikes or trikes, namely flex is verboten. Every time aluminum flexes, it work-hardens. Eventually it becomes embrittled and...

    I can only ride one bike at a time, but having lots of bikes lets me distribute the wear-and-tear so that they all last longer.

    Your road crews are obviously rank amateurs compared to Michigan's. That's what ours look like after they've been filled.

    I ride my lowracers in the spring. Drives the upright riders crazy that the wind doesn't affect me as much as it does them.

    I wear contacts because my prescription is too strong to put in wraparounds. But, due to my advanced maturity, I can have problems reading the speedo. I may look into some self-stick reading inserts...

    Beat me to it! Although this will get you banned from your club. I recommend visiting Bent Up Cycles in N. Hollywood. You can test ride a few without making any commitments. In fact, the last I knew...

    I'm not a trike guy, but both of those trikes seem to be well-accepted in the triker community. The Catrike has direct steer while the Terratrike has linkage steering. That'll make them ride...

    Don't worry, there will be a few more days of warm weather this year. At least, I hope there will be.

    That's the first warning sign that she's leaning toward the dark side (recumbents.)

    I've been telling my siblings for years that you're not officially old until you're a grandparent. And it just so happens that although I'm the oldest of the clan, I was the last to become a...

    Update: My last episode was Monday morning when I got up, I had a slight burning by my hip that went away before I left for work. Nothing since. I'm crossing my fingers that the worst is over and I'm...

    Are you kiddin'? Downhills are the only reason why I do uphills! Although you're doing it wrong. I don't stop pedaling until I run out of spin, somewhere north of 45 mph. As MRT2 says, if there's...

    We're all different, but it's not uncommon for me to do 30 miles or more with *no* breakfast. I'm pretty hungry when I get back, though. Are you sure your return trip wasn't wind-assisted?

    Sandals are prevalent among recumbent riders because so many of them are 'older' and have wide, difficult-to-fit feet. As I get older, my feet are gaining in that direction, too. I've gone from a...
