    You've made a terrible mistake.

    I too thought it would be great to get my wife riding. And soon enough she liked it enough to give racing a try too. Which would seem great, except now my bike...

    We are finally getting rid of our servers. We got hacked a couple weeks ago, so the folks above are forcing us to get rid of our servers.

    I don't think canuckbelle will notice as much of a change as you are predicting. Women's center of gravity is in their hips, so most of her weight will remain on the saddle regardless of where her...

    OP. Check your messages. I sent you my wife's email address. She may know women in your area with whom you could ride.

    Hey TMonk,
