    Heh, "cursing" gears is a good name!

    I don't think it's the best plan for a radonneur ride to hammer the climbs in the big ring. It's got to wear you down more than sitting and spinning a...

    I meant to say that my 705 is better with one-per-second recording than the uh, "smart" recording, which tries to just record changes in speed, etc.



    Yes, my 705 is similar. You'd think that...

    Or 3) Get really really low gears. But it's a race, you can't go too slow.

    A long 9% grade is pretty steep to be able to spin up. For instance, on this bike speed calculator: rider 150 pounds,...

    My older 705 works much better with 1-per-second recording. That makes recording file sizes of about 1 mb per hour, which isn't a problem.

    The Whisky no7 fork comes in cantilever or disk. It has eyelets for fenders, but no rack mount. Lots of clearance for larger tires, maybe close to 50c. It's more expensive, of course, at around...

    Instead of hands on the hoods, if you are often moving your hands back an inch or so behind the hoods, it might be a fitting problem you could fix yourself. You might have too long a stem, or the...

    What part of your arms are hurting? Shoulders, arm muscles, or hands? I get sore shoulders when my fit is wrong, and there's too much weight on my arms. I have the shifter hoods angled upwards a...

    I'd like a power meter if it was cheap enough. Not for formal training, but for tracking effort while riding. I use my heart rate now, for a steady maintainable effort on long climbs, but power...

    Yes. It worked perfectly the first time I ever had used CO2. It's easy to control the gas flow. The 20 gram cartridge is for MTB tires.
