    If your client hit me because I didn't have a front reflector (not the wheel reflector but the one mounted on the head tube), it means I was riding on the wrong side of the road, at night. You won't...

    Right, like the Badger knew that Greg's brother-in-law was a moron who'd violate the first rule of hunting safety by firing before identifying his target.

    There's no mistaking a blow out. You'll duck because you'll think someone fired a gun at you. A regular flat will cause some vibration in the wheel. Rear flats are just an annoyance. Front flats can...

    Well, yeah, if you never ride hills, you're gonna feel like crap climbing real hills.

    The solution to this is ride hills more often. They get easier the more you ride them.

    It's those carbon bars. They absorb all that UV energy from sunlight, and literally start talking to me: "go faster, release some of this energy, before we asplode" :D

    Some guys have naturally high blood values, and benefit very little from EPO or transfusing. Lance's values were low, so he benefited greatly from blood doping. Lance did admit to using 'roids prior...

    You could roll that back to 1991, because you're not going to find a whole lot of people who believe that Big Mig suddenly went from a guy who struggled to crack the top 100 to 5 consecutive yellows,...

    He makes a great point about Vino, too. He not only has a team, at least 5 of his riders have been popped for doping over the last year, to the point that his team's license hangs by a thread.

    I was told years ago that it's a saddle because you sit astride it, and not on it.

    Why the thing that it's attached to is a "seat" post, and the thing that the assembly then is inserted into is a...

    Sure it will. But only during the daytime, when the carbon absorbs solar energy and transfers it to the pedals. But you have to be careful not to overdo it and reach the point where the frame...

    I noticed the biggest difference in my own performance when I went from a hybrid to a drop bar bike. It was an older steel Schwinn LeTour.

    Going from that to an aluminum frame only made a marginal...

    They may keep your toes in place, but your foot will wander every which way it can over the pedal surface, which can lead to knee problems. They also may make you feel a little more secure standing,...

    Agreed. I've also been able to pick up a couple of pairs of DeMarchis on closeout for less than $150.

    Maybe we should put together a list of states where reflectors are required in the daytime.

    The Prism lenses are also pretty neat. You'll notice the biggest difference between Oakley, Smith, Rudy et al and the cheapies when you put on a pair---the lens clarity.

    I've never found that to be true, myself. All of my various Tifosi models, and my Oakley Radar Paths, are comfortable enough for every day wear. I use my Oakleys for driving, too.
