    pure Stockholm syndrome. The road ragers are going to road rage no matter what the last cyclist did or didn't do

    was just thinking about this the other day. Who makes up rules for motorists where they have to do more than the law requires so that people don't hate all motorists?

    really doesn't have to be that much more than double my one-way commute to be good training. But if all I do is my commute, I get slower. It's about 7 miles each way

    yes, there are women's diamond frames, but it's all a marketing exercise. There is no significant difference in the proportions of female bodies vs. male bodies. If the bike fits you, it doesn't...

    If you can ride 100miles comfortably, I don't see why you can't ride the entire distance. Just make sure to eat enough

    here in Central Pennsylvania, you would hate yourself using 28mm tires. And get really good at fixing flats. When I rode gravel in Virginia, I used to use my racing bike with tubular tires. It all...

    I had a velocity synergy do that to me when I hit a pothole. It didn't owe me anything, but I wasn't happy about it.

    2 degrees is often in the range of the slop. If not, you can probably remove a little material and get it to sit flat

    out of curiosity, is it disqualifying if you've fallen off your bike and hit your head too many times? If so, what is that number?

    there are a lot of people that have very strong opinions about this, and they all fall on the external clamp side. As a traditionalist, I would rather have integrated binder bolt. My track frame has...

    a few years back, the Eastern Pa 400k was held on a very hot day, which unfortunately was the hottest day of the year to that point. A rider ended up in the hospital for heat stroke. It's not...

    I'm not positive about the front end hit, they often look like that. Look at the bottom of the head tube again, that lug was misshapen from the factory. They didn't face all the way to the bottom...

    my suggestion is to take that bottom cup out and see if the crack in the lug actually transferred into the head tube. A pressed lug has a seam in that location, it looks to me like it was never...

    all of the controls have cots, and any of them other than Loudeac will have beds. I have no problem falling asleep in their dorms, so I have contemplated stopping in one of the lesser-used controls....

    I have always worn a base layer. I don't like bib straps on bare skin for one thing. The other is if you fall, it is far better to have a base layer on. I have some light wool base layers that I've...

    Villaines takes their role in PBP very seriously, so you'll probably be ok. I wonder if you can get some feedback from other people. Maybe Gavin B.? I think he went with the 80 hour group, but I'm...

    I couldn't readily find the fork numbers, but it looks like a typical 45mm rake. Most bikes have a straight fork that goes to the same place. There is something else wrong, my guess is it's not...
