    Such a good point. I caught the car owner after the race and he was in tears, blaming it on the fact that he'd left it out in the rain overnight the week before the race. I'll have to shoot him an...

    Really makes you think- I watched some historic Formula 1 cars racing last summer in Canada. There was a 1981 Mclaren MP4/1 on track, the first F1 car to use a fully composite chassis. Needless to...

    Fine, stick to that definition, I'm honestly just curious to see the study you referenced.

    Like another poster referenced, I used to do weight training fairly regularly and I never developed the...

    Wait, what? Like outright leg strength measured by leg pressed/squats, that kind of thing? I know cycling doesn't build up bodybuilder quads, but even with no strength training on my legs I've always...

    I'd say it's worth test-riding a Trek Domane. It's a nice bike and for $2,000 you can probably get a 1 or 2 year old 4 series with 105/Ultegra. That bike's seat tube coupler plus the ability to run...

    I'm very impressed with the sheriff's response time and actions! Well done to them, even if it is really what everyone "should" do in these circumstances.

    I was still living in Miami when that happened. The driver ended up not even getting a slap on the wrist, even though it...

    You also don't really hear them at speeds below ~20mph, they're running purely on batteries and I guess they have skinny tires and low drag so there's not a lot of road noise. Sneak up on me all the...

    It's because of Rule 1.

    9 out of 10 times that a car passes me only to immediately slow and make a right hand turn, it's a senior citizen driving a land yacht Buick/Olds/Mercury.

    Whoa... ex-pro? 6 hours at 30+ is Paris-Roubaix with a tailwind territory. A typical road race for me in moderately hilly terrain is 2 hours at ~24-25.

    Anyway, I do think I'll end up trying a TT...

    This. Expect to spend $500 on the non-bike stuff you'll end up needing, assuming you end up going with bike shoes/cleats/clipless pedals and road bike attire.

    I only have one bike, so I ride it rain or shine, but if it's really a deluge and I need to ride I'll do it on a trainer. I've been out in tropical downpours for hours at a time before and the bike...

    I'm sure you do get noticeably faster, though. I've never used clip-ons, but if I'm doing an interval and I'm riding in the drops at, say, 25mph and then move my arms into the IAB position, I'll pick...

    I'm selling a couple of older Canons I had sitting in drawers (SD1300, SD750, an SX10 I rarely use) to make up for the S110 purchase. I'm only paying 160 for it, which really isn't so bad and I think...

    It's all about the rider. It's obviously not optimal, but a dude in my area has earned overall podiums in local singletrack mountain bike races on a pinarello FP2 carbon bike he's converted to flat...

    In my experience (and this may be a generational outcome, as I'm 29), cycling draws in a lot of the data-obsessed types. Many of my friends are engineers, analysts, web designers, ect. that seem...

    My biggest use out of the whole data tracking world is to A) know when I'm not pushing myself hard enough when needed thanks to HR, and B) see what my friends are doing/where they're riding via...

    Some people get better results for themselves analyzing everything in minute detail, you obviously do not and that's fine too. Like you said, both approaches will probably end up with the same result...

    I use cyclemeter as well. How do you share with Strava? I used to just email a .GPX file to strava's upload service after each ride, but they just dropped their email upload function so now I have to...

    Maybe, but I've taken probably 1 night ride a week since I got into road bikes 5 years ago and I haven't had any issues yet. The risk doesn't seem much greater than a normal daylight ride when you...
