    You should have just slowed down and let the truck go. You're lucky you got a ticket and didn't get hit by the truck.

    It looks like Steve crashed yesterday and has a broken ankle. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to make it this far and have that happen.

    It depends on how well your front tire is holding up. My tires do tend to wear very slowly on the front when it comes to tread life. However, there usually are a few cuts that show up. I don't expect...

    Just buy online and give your LBS a $5 donation. It seems more useful to you as a charity than an actual business.

    If you can comfortably (and I mean comfortably) do a metric, you'll be fine. Before I was doing centuries regularly, I used to hit a wall around mile 75. Just be prepared for that and push through...

    I was just out at Middlegate yesterday and can assure you that the little store there is still open. I wouldn't plan on finding water in between the towns listed.

    Kurt also has the advantage of starting later. If it's close towards the end that will be huge.

    So far Steve is averaging 27.8 feet of climbing per mile. Kurt is at 12.2. So Steve is climbing 15.6...

    I don't get the criticism of Kurt, either. It's a mileage competition. It's not an elevation competition or a who-can-suffer-the-most competition. Like it or not, it's the smart thing to do to keep...

    I say forget it. If you're riding for a long time in the rain (a) you're going to get wet anyway and (b) you're going to have to wash your bike after the ride, fenders or not.

    I have fenders on my...

    I just bought a Vaude Cruiser, but I haven't tested it out yet. I know it fits a shirt and a pair of shorts, but I'm not sure if it will hit my legs. I might give it a test later this week.

    If that's the case I'd just go with a cardboard box. You can get a free box at the LBS. Flying with the bike is easy and convenient (it's just the fee that makes most people angry). It would be more...

    Absolutely. My next helmet will be hi-viz for sure. My current helmet is white, which I hoped would add a little extra visibility. That was a few years ago and it seems like there are more hi-viz...

    I had a Ritchey Breakaway for a while. I was never charged extra. An S&S is an even better solution because you can get a case that looks a lot more like normal luggage. I had a hard-sided one that I...

    I'm a big Fred when it comes to hi-viz stuff. It's more visible. There's no denying that. A Fred will stick out in a group ride and Tinkoff-Saxo stands out in the peloton. How much safer is it?...

    Their pedals are cheaper than Garmin's. Their crank also seems competitive price-wise to Stages. I'd say competition has already brought the price down.

    BTW, Lezyne is coming out with a line of...

    It all depends on your riding style. As mentioned, light guys tend to stand more and the big guys prefer to sit. There are always exceptions to the rule, of course. Personally, I'm a light guy and I...

    I usually go for Skittles at a gas station. Pretty high calories : price ratio and I'm not a fan of candy bars.
