    Even with a legit 62" linear dimensioned S&S case, I've been asked what was in the case by United counter agents (and I was either Gold or 1K at the time -- UA's top tiers). At the time I responded...

    Back side of Mt. Hamilton (4.2mi and 1900ft) and Sierra Rd (3.5mi and 1788ft) have been stages on the Tour of California.

    I take back everything I said about riding in cool weather vs. blistering heat for the DMD. Dayum that sucked.

    At at least this year the knee pain didn't kick in until Mines Rd and I knew I...

    I'll be there Rick ... one of at least three recumbents. I'll end up being slower on the climbs, but I'm guaranteed not to DNF because the seat was uncomfortable.

  6. Swap drivetrain cause I'm worried about a little/potentially lot of rain?

    I just switched my drivetrain over to 10spd from 9 (using bar-end shifters). $75 worth of new chain (it's a recumbent) and a new cassette. Cranks were 10spd already.

    Weather forecast now says 80%...

    If I drank a large bottle of coffee every hour instead of a bottle of water, I'd OD on caffeine before I got dehyrdated.

    But no, I don't drink coffee while riding. But before a ride or mid-ride,...

    You must have never tried it. No it isn't / no it doesn't.

    Drink water to rehydrate. Enjoy coffee/tea/cola for the taste/calories/buzz.

    Ride faster and make them pop.

    If you aren't inclined to do that, slow down/sit up, look back and ask them WTF they are doing, and if they don't get the hint tell them to GTFO. No sane person is...

    Ya, but they're doing it wrong. They've got to pick the right people to pass. I find it LOLtastic to pass the average/above average road rider while riding my super-duper-fast recumbent, give a...

    I don't think you hit the front brake.

  15. 90 degree fitting for M785 hydro brake lever

    I'm planning on using M785 hydraulics on a recumbent with a very narrow handlebar ("hamster bars"). The stock hose is quite rigid, and the tightest radius I can make with it is undesirably large. ...

    Someone above mentioned the Shiftmate. It does work very well for allowing me to use my 10spd shifters (I think they are 6600) with a 9spd cassette. If the cable routing is reversed it should allow...

    Lots of bikes (primarily CX) have dropouts spaced at 132.5mm to allow either 130mm or 135mm spaced hubs to be used. If you want to use off the shelf parts, 130mm will limit you to caliper brakes...

    I just bought a pair of 28mm's (256g and 257g) from Wiggle for ~$87, free shipping, took a week to get to California.

    They measure 30.5mm on my Belgium rims. Can't say they're much better than...
