    Sorry,
    Both the bear and the cyclist are shopped in. They both look wrong compared to the lighting of the road and trees. And what's that skin colored thing behind the cyclist's leg?

    Looks like fun. A slow cruise, for sure. Check out the bike lights after sunset.

    Moving the saddle back will take weight off the hands. But that can put too little weight on the front wheel, and affect handling.

    I set up a new bike set like that initially. I thought the new...

    I used to really tighten my stem on the aluminum steerer on my old bike. I didn't really know what was tight enough, but overtightening it didn't hurt anything. I like using a torque wrench now.

    Tires are easy to mount. And the tube easily tucks up into the wide interior space, away from the bead. The rim tape is light blue--black rim tape makes it hard to see when a tube is in the way. When...

    If you like the Madone's fit after a test ride, use 25c tires at 10 psi lower pressure than 23c. That makes a huge difference on rough roads. Good tires, lightweight with flexible sidewalls like...

    The Park Tool TW-1 is 180 grams and 29 cm long. 0-7Nm. I had to also buy a 1/4 inch socket to hex socket adapter, 4mm and 5mm bits at the local hardware store. I've even used it off the scale,...

    I'm the same weight. I got HED Ardennes plus SL last fall. I'm running a 23c GP4000S and it measures 26.6 mm wide on the 25.6 mm rims. That works great.

    I use between 80 and 88 psi in the...

    Average cadence will be lower.

    For fast riding, I like to be in the 90-100 rpm range. But the average cadence for the ride will be much less.

    Here's an example chart. It's the fastest (for me)...

    I seem to be warmed up right away. But after 40 minutes, I do notice the difference. I feel stronger, and in winter, my fingers are finally warm after freezing for the first part of the ride.

    You are too late!
    I remembered a wheel with copper threads embedded in the carbon to dissipate heat. I googled, but didn't find it. Instead, this patent showed up.

    Red and yellow might blend into the background. :innocent:

    I was running blinkers front and back last Sunday, even in bright sunlight. I want the texting driver to notice me way down the road.
