    Did a 400k brevet this weekend, and never got my gloves out of the handlebar bag. Hands have never felt better after a long ride. ;)

    Again: Joe Friel found a 9% improvement. No, he doesn't claim anyone else did (or will) in that blog post:



    That's it! ;)

    That would bother me a lot, too. Having a wheel with all that extra dish, and then throwing it away by not even getting the benefits of extra gears. If I ever acquire a bike with 130mm spacing,...

    Yep! It does dry out your mouth and throat quickly, which is an interesting feeling. I can even confirm that a shot of vodka felt refreshing afterward. Not saying any of this was smart, but we...

    Read the post again -- he found that having the cleats too far forward cost him about that much efficiency. He's not guaranteeing that everyone will boost their power output by 9% (actually,...

    Haven't we been over this already? You need to get over this notion of stopping and putting a foot down while still in the saddle. If there's any chance of stopping before crashing into the...

    +1. I'm still kind of a novice at randonneuring, but going slower and limiting the out-of-saddle climbing really help save your energy for the end. I personally would go for the 12-25 over the...

    I'm one of those who hated the combo pedals (M324). Always seemed like the wrong side was coming up for what I needed, so I'd rather commit and know for sure that when I put my foot down blindly,...

    The ladies version of the B17 is only slightly wider (I have both), so I wouldn't bother with it.

    It's too bad that the B68 was discontinued, as it was as wide (205mm) as the B66 and B67 without...

    Okay, was curious why you were asking. I don't use any of those sensors. Too cheap and/or lazy not to install anymore than my basic wired bike computer that shows speed and tracks mileage. :)

    Bull****. I drank 190 proof ethanol all the time my freshman year of college. :lol:

    The real problem with 200 proof ethanol is keeping it that way -- it's so hygroscopic that it will pull in...

    It's easier than you think. Many of the 7-speed HG freehubs you'll find are spaced to 130 or 135mm for touring or MTB wheels, but all you have to do is disassemble the axle, cut off about 4 (or 9)...
