    Since you have a sensitive stomach, I'd suggest you try eating the amount of dates that you plan to consume on the ride, but do it at home in case you have issues. Maybe do this while you're doing...

    As CDR noted above, the front wheel is the biggest concern with gusty crosswinds. I skimmed the posts and didn't see it, but another thing to consider is the rider's weight which also plays a roll...

    I try to do big gear (53x11) intervals for 60 minutes once a week to work on power. Sometimes while sitting in on a group ride I'll put it in a large gear to do the same. The rest of the time I try...

    It may just take some time getting used to how much force it takes to release the cleats from the pedal. Is this your first entry into clipless and just getting used to it? I've only used SPD's, so...

    Changing from shorts to bibs. The boys are much happier now. Oh, and to properly wave. It took me years to learn the proper technique to elicit a response.

    Snug, but not too snug. I don't use a torque wrench, just tighten it enough so there's no play when you hold the front brake and move back and forth. Put on a stand and allow the front wheel to...
