    What is true is that even with crazy bright lighting, most threats are harder to see, especially during bad weather and especially things like animals coming from the sides. Descents are particularly...

    And it is usually far safer to do so. My personal experience is that motorists are *much* nicer to you if you ride a few feet left than if you hug the line. If you do the latter, you'll find yourself...

    There is a reason it's called "road cycling"....

    But seriously, riding on sidewalks is far more dangerous than riding on roads even if it weren't illegal. Drivers don't see you when they turn...

    This.

    Also, do not display speed on your computer since what you see can only depress you. Instead, display the odometer since it only gives good news. And ignore the TT suggestions. A decent...

    The problem is that you have the wrong cassette. 13-23 with 50/34 gives you no overlap at all. Your normal speed just happens to be at the very top of the range for your small ring and the very...

    Feasible, but not necessary and generally not the best idea -- if you need to go down one more, your only option is to switch rings which makes too big a change.

    Aero and choice of line is everything in descents. He's probably doing considerably better than you on both fronts.

    Clubs in all sports that I participate in occasionally get taken over by personalities that seem more into procedures than into the actual sport. Once practices like this go on too long, they get...

    I love the idea. But I'd be worried I'd hit something hard enough to knock the pump so it falls all the way down

    Yes. Lezyne pumps easily to 100psi easily. I switched from CO2 because the Lezyne is as light as an inflator and a couple cartridges, you can inflate tires fast, and the air never runs out.

    I'm with the others here -- those guys are lunatics. Riding close and fast is safe enough, but when people move about like a swarm of bees, it's time to drop back if you don't want to crash on a...

    Kids have all kinds of advantages. Aside from not worrying about what works and what doesn't, they're made of rubber.

    Lots of options here. If you ride in areas with businesses, you can buy water or ask restaurants to fill your bottles -- I've never had one refuse. If you ride in rural areas with people but not...

    Agreed. For MUPs, 400 is appropriate and much more than that is probably more harm than good.

    Give everyone a break. Choosing a title that plays to the worst stereotypes of a tiny subset of riders and following it up with sweeping generalizations is not neutral.

    Watts are watts, but I think there is a difference in difficulty between cycling on the flats and cycling on the hills.

    The display on a power meter is normalized to account for the fact that no...

    One of the neat effects I've noticed when cycling along the Oregon Coast is that the wind climbs the Coast Range as it encounters it. As a practical effect, this means you get a push going uphill and...

    It's some of the scariest high speed riding I've ever done, second only to a death wobble at 45mph. Even though I had 20 miles to play with, I only did it for a short time. Like you, I couldn't bear...
