    Sorry to be always commenting on this thread, but I seem to be the only one with long experience of them (20 years). Riding clip-ons on a road bike isn't much like riding a TT bike. A big difference...

    There's a very simple fix: use clip-ons which have the pads aft of the handlebars. I have a well-balanced position, handlebars ~3" below saddle, reach such that my knees and elbows just barely...

    Also known as, "My wife/GF/BF says do something or quit riding!"

    At the end of a 154 mile event, I once wound up in a group with 3 racer boys. We set up a rolling paceline and rather quickly built up a group of about 50 followers. However, after 25 miles of that,...

    He's riding a tri/TT bike, not clip-ons on a road bike. His CG is already quite a bit forward of a standard road bike position. So BTW, if you do run clip-ons, don't change your position unless you...

    Firstly, going for 90% of MHR or whatever percent is a bit of a mistake. What you want is to be over your lactate threshold (LT) by some amount, which means first of all knowing where that is. There...

    As soon as you get off the bike, wash down a 500/250 cal/mag pill with a recovery drink, say 25g whey protein and 50g carbs.

    Snickers are OK once in a while, but too much fat for regular use if you're going hard. We like them for touring. "Chocolate bars" don't work. Too much fat. As you see above, they are not at all...

    Because most people know nothing about them and don't want to know. The usual BF thing. It's perceived as cheating. Real roadies just go slower upwind. Of course no one uses them in close quarters,...

    The weight won't make nearly as much difference as the smoothness and stiffness. You'll notice more difference on the third mountain pass than on the first.

    Resistance, however you do it, is totally worth it. You cannot get enough resistance to do more than spin from the rollers alone, no matter their diameter or your tire pressures. With resistance...

    IME the whole secret to long chain life is to have lube in the rollers, not water or solvent. The chain comes lubed with lube in the rollers. Keep it that way. Therefore don't solvent wash, and don't...

    Perpetuem is good stuff. It doesn't really fall into the category of "sports drinks," being more of a complete food for rides of 3 hours and longer. Most folks don't do enough of that for the tooth...
