    1. Been using Speedplay X-Series since the 90s. I have no desire to ride any other road pedal.
    2. I don't know what the PD MS-540 is; but I still believe the Speedplays are better.
    3. Ride what...

    I also have the Climber's jersey. There's not much fabric there, and like the rest of the Castelli line, what is there fits fairly snug (European cut). I've worn it on one 80+ mile ride where the...

    3326 miles since January. I don't have the breakdown between commuting and recreational miles with me ('ll try to remember to look at it tonight). Goal is to exceed 5k for the year (should be...

    Saturday was the Tour of the California Alps aka "The Death Ride": 129 miles, 15,000 feet of elevation gain (5 mountain passes, all over 8,000 feet). It's long been on my "bucket list", but only...

    For those interested, the weather for the Death Ride today was spectacular; you could not ask for better weather (considering the locale). Sunny, blue skies, not a drop of rain (though I thought I...

    I'm rockin' the Dinotte Quad 4 Red - stead on after dark, flashing during the day. I'm very pleased with it; if I lost it today, I'd have another on order tomorrow. Not cheap, but IMO worth it for...

    A couple of months ago I hit 55; wasn't really planning on it, but the downhill was wide open, with no traffic, fairly decent surface, and plenty steep enough (parts of this road exceed 13%). I was...

    Haven't noticed a problem with the frames bothering my ears (yet - I've probably jinxed myself and it'll be all I can think of on the ride home tonight :lol:). Oh, and I do have the yellow lenses...

    Many years ago (back in the 90s) I was a summer-only commuter. I bought a pair of REI house brand (Novara) shorts sometime in the spring. The shorts failed before the end of the summer (I can't...

    +1 on the Rudy Project (Rydons) with insert. The only complaint I have against them is fogging in winter. The insert makes it impossible to clear the condensation by wiping (without removing the...

    I'm in California, 33 degrees is winter; a particularly cold winter.

    Well, actually it occasionally drops below freezing, but not often.

    Probably the worst thing to do to any vehicle with an internal combustion engine, well, maybe driving around with the oil drain plug missing might be worse, but this one is really bad.

    The last time I did Mt D, I (literally) ran into huge swarms of bugs right before the wall. This was in mid-April, and I don't recall it being right after a rain. Your bugs, I presume?

    Of course it's raining . . . I just cleaned my bike and replaced my chain on Sunday :notamused:. I think I'll go to work as a drought-buster.

    Three words: You da man!

    Even though I really don't need anything, I may order something anyway.

    Thanks again, to you and Curtis.

    Another vote for the Take-a-Look. I've used their glasses-mounted version since the '90s. Good quality, very sturdy, and easy to adjust precisely. I've tried a helmet-mounted mirror (Hub Stub or...

    I buy tubes when they're on sale. I probably have one to two dozen. When I have a flat, I just put in a new tube, and put the old tube in the pile of "tubes to be patched". Then once a year or so...

    I said it before in another of your threads on this topic: "Too cool; just way too cool."
    Kudos to everyone involved in this project. You should all be very proud of the job you are doing.

    No doubt I overdid it That's kind of my point; sometimes the first ride feels pretty good :thumb:, but then, the second ride . . . not so much :eek:.
