    I ride up from Ormond, meet the PC group at Publix then to St. A and C/11. Should be there at roughly 9, on Tuesday of next week. Its a Tuesday ritual.

    I changed my Red (Original 10 speed) equipped Tarmac to 7900 DA back in 2010, and have never looked back ( 32k miles ago). I had nothing but trouble on the Red but, it was the original and...

    I think the SMP TRK and Phorm S310 saddles are a good place to start - and they are well under three digits.

    But remember, Kerry has had both his hips replaced and he was still riding up the best of the Alps. It did not appear to slow him down. It shouldn't slow you down either once rehab is over.

    A snickers bar has a relatively high glycemic load, yet only moderate glycemic index. This makes it a good cycling fuel especially for long hauls (as mentioned above).

    I think its more of a frame issue than a wheel issue - although I would not say its very common. Some bike makers simply do not provide much clearance, and its a shame. Also, wider rims tend to be...

    I ride group rides all the time, in both NC and FL. There are always few that ride their bikes to the start. But just a few. In my case, I always drive. The main reason is that I can...

    I'd like to find a 2.3 on sale like that....in a 60cm. Great buy.

    One nice tidbit about the aluminum Domane is that it has rack mounts and suitable for lighter weight touring (credit card...

    Nothing beats riding with a group - whether its a fast or recovery paced ride. I only ride solo when I have to, which fortunately isn't very often.

    I think the issue is more with your diet. When young, we eat about anything we want, junk food included. As it turns out, junk food can be good fuel for the road - even in lesser quantities. The...

    The Roubaix is an excellent long distance bike. I would get it way before an AWOL unless my plans were to do fully loaded touring. With the Roubaix, you can ride long distance, you can race, ride...

    I've had two hernias (one on each side) and both used the incision (not laparoscopic). I demanded that no screen mesh was to be used and the doctors (two different docs) reluctantly agreed. ...
