    That's been a bugbear of mine as well - cycling websites calling tt bikes track bikes because they have a re-spaced (if at all) rear triangle. Some of them don't even bother to omit the brake holes,...

    Now that we're into the offseason how here, I've changed up the lifting schedule a bit - I've done about 9 months with Starting Strength, and have moved to a more intense lifting routine - 3 to 5...

    Best set up for checking bike fit is on a wind trainer I reckon, and if you can be putting 70-80% effort onto the pedals, that's really helpful. We can all sit pretty on a bike fairly easily, and...
