    Starbucks has a corporate policy no bikes in the drive-through. One good reason I don't patronize them. In Austin we have lots of locally owned coffee shops, many with drive-throughs. They are...

    I take lisinopril also. It is a relatively benign blood pressure med. It does not impose a rev limiter on your heart like beta blockers do, and by relaxing and opening up blood vessels can help you...

    Sounds like the home health rehab care that my insurance was going to pay for. About all they did was have you move your feet around and maybe lift one leg and then another. At one point we walked...

    I agree with you. You know, I have been all over the internet googling for post cardiac arrest rehab and similar. I can find NOTHING that I feels applies to the program I need to get back into...
  8. Let's hear from heart attack survivors!

    The evening of Oct. 22nd I was on a group ride and they tell me I just fell over at an intersection where we regroup. 68 years old with no warning, not overweight, good blood chemistry as far as...

    Someone "keenly aware" of their surroundings has to be pretty foolhardy to roll through a stop sign in front of a cop.

  11. Back on the bike after heart attack? Tell me your story.

    Age 67. On the beginning of a group ride I keeled over at an intersection about the third week of October. A fellow rider jumped on my chest and beat the hell out of it, someone else called EMS who...

    More that the guy was riding like an idiot. Now the clothing I don't consider relevant, headphones don't do much for his safety.

    My favorite LBS does not seem to hold it against me that I do my own work. The manager entered my information in the computer for 20% off on parts, tires and tubes, nutrition, and the rare instance...

    You will burn more fat above this so-called fat burning zone, just not as high a percentage. If you search "fat burning zone" you will find many links where the "fat burning zone" is discredited.

    I hit 176 at age 64. Formula is worthless. Maximum, means ABSOLUTE maximum, no amount of exertion can make it go faster.

    Totally meaningless alleged statistic. Sidewalk riders and road riders are not the same kind of riders. Some roads are relatively friendly, some are suicidal, some sidewalks are really more like...

    I don't quite know what or how they are measuring, but i don't put much stock in it. 5 mm is not very much if they are talking about the dropout spacing.

    Even if you found statistics there are so many variables the statistics would be meaningless for the times and places you ride at night. One huge variable: are you out there when bars are closing? ...

    I wear levi shorts, a pink cotton t-shirt and push platform pedals with steel-toe work boots on my road bike that isn't strictly that because it has flat bars and MTB drivetrain. Last night, as...

    i would never take statins (liver poison) for those numbers. The flags on blood work are silly. Your total cholesterol is flagged because it is over 200, but that is largely because your HDL is...

    Yes, thinking in terms of watts, it makes a little more sense to me.

  24. "Aero" racing rims that make loud "woosh", how can they be areodynamic?

    When you agitate air molecules you make noise. It might be high pitched, it might be low pitched but it is noise. My conventional 700c wheels make almost no noise. Fancy carbon three spoke wheels...

    Sure it is. If there was already a problem the old crank arms would have been far too easy to remove.
