    There are cheaper ways to get your hands dirty, if that's the primary goal. : )

    Seriously, the majority view is likely to be a "No." Spending hundreds of Euros/US$ to shave ounces from a...

    Agreed, on both points. Junior thinks he wants to be an airline pilot, so I paid for him to get his private pilots license last summer. For that sum, I could have bought a very nice road bike.
  4. Road Bike Rentals in Guangzhou (Canton)?

    (I've also posted this thread in the Asia subforum, but it looks to be a pretty quiet place. (The subforum, not Asia.))

  5. Road Bike Rentals in Guangzhou (Canton)?

    Will be in GZ for a week, next month. Multi-city trip, so can't afford to pack a bike. Anyone know if rentals are available there? Something other than a 40-pound Flying Pigeon, preferably.
  6. Yep.

    Yep.

    Standing climbing for 10+ straight minutes, at a steady pace: not many places to do that. I know you can stand on flat grade, but it's not the same. (To me, anyhow.)

    My gym has decent spin bikes (Keiser.) The classes are a bit ridiculous, from a serious road cycling workout perspective, but I do "spin" once a week, either during class or not. For me, there are...

    Sorry; didn't see the question. Yes, what Caloso said. I don't have the Garmin data, but suspect our rolling average was ~22 mph, including a 30-minute climb in the middle. IMO, it's a pretty good...

    Black is beautiful. The only rule you're fouling is the spelling of "breach."

    Right answer (100'/mile =~2% average grade), but your reasoning is whacked. :twitchy:

    To answer the OP, I have significant climbs within 100 feet of the end of my driveway. (I live 28 miles east...

    If it's a long, steady climb, I try to get my breathing and pedal strokes into a rhythm, then try to add a song or beat on top of that. Meanwhile, I compliment myself on how awesome I look wearing my...

    Group Ride Report - Davis

    I live and do most of my riding in the hills east of Sactown. Looking for a change of scenery yesterday, I joined a ride that starts at 8:00 AM every Saturday at Davis Wheelworks. Large, but...

    +1.
    Useless road skill. IME. It's actually slower than pushing off with one foot, then clipping in.

    I'm not that familiar with GT intricacies. Is the issue one of fairness between teams, as some teams place their top GC riders in the Giro and TdF, while others focus only on the latter? Are 5(?)...

    To answer the question: No. I'm confident in my riding ability and am well aware that, on any particular ride, I may be the fastest, slowest, or averagist rider in the area.

    OP, it is likely that...

    Without knowing anything about you (age, size,strength, century experience, recent training, etc.) it's tough to provide much. A single ride one week before the event is not going to materially...

    On-bike fighting is clearly a skill neither rider has spent time developing. I think that, if either was serious about hurting the other, he would have dismounted and "taken it to the street." Also,...
