    cycling is an aerobic sport, so cross training that improves your aerobic fitness will likely have an endurance boosting effect on the bike.

    My impression is the exact opposite. My impression is that you desperately want everyone to like what you like so it will be validated. Otherwise, why would you pick this fight so incessantly?

    Aerobars are allowed. It would be ironic (and absurd) if my recumbents were allowed but a pair of clip ons weren't. :)

    I think that is misguided. A fork that has more rake but heavier construction is going to be rougher riding - so you need to consider more than rake. BUT, seriously, how much importance does fork...

    Bananas work well for me, but since I am a delicate flower, I need a banana every 10 miles or so. I need bigger bags.

    On non-free route perms, controles need to be arranged so there aren't massive short cuts that are possible. Some minor shortcuts, or uncontrolled short cuts due to safety issues are usually ok.

    I didn't say that going carbo light was advised, just not to carbo load.

    I don't think things like this matter. It only 'matters' on the internet.

    If you need proof of this, attend a 200K brevet in your area and look at the bikes being used.

    sounds too steep.

    A good venue is:

    - free of large amounts of traffic

    - not completely exposed - some wind buffers (hills, trees, etc.) is a good thing.

    Quibble: That assumes Cd doesn't change, which is not true if the shape of the object changes. A handlebar bag does change the shape of the bike-rider system.
