    Well, tonight they pre-empted prime time coverage entirely, so folks can watch guys make 400 or so left turns at 200+ mph. :D

    Used as they were designed to be used (see John D Thompson's post), with a cleat and tightened straps, he's absolutely correct on both counts.

    I haven't tried either of the newer carbon pedals, but on the old style, I have both 105s and Ultegras. The Ultegras weren't worth the extra cash.

    Lay the bike down, and get in the fetal position on the ground. Safest thing you can do if you're caught out in the open.

    If you're riding shirtless, you probably won't have to worry about plumber's crack if you go with shorts over bibs. It's usually a "bay window" in front that causes regular shorts to sag in the rear....

    Ragtops don't protect you either. Metal frame, metal body, metal roof. The voltage in lightning can easily arc the distance between the frame and the ground.

    What's your point? No one said it's difficult, but why bother taking the time to unscrew it, then put it back on, when it serves no purpose? Why is having a valve cap on a Presta valve so important...
