    What is a season?

    1922 so far this year. A bit less than I had intended, but my long rides are way down this year.

    The gear ranges for available 11 speed cassettes didn't appeal to me when combined with 50/34 chainrings, but with my subcompact 46/30, the 11-28 gives me a great setup.

    The new Specialized Roubaix Pro tires are tough, reasonably light and have a surprisingly supple feel for a tire with puncture protection. I'm running the 30/32 on my new all-road bike (the casing is...

    The Flyer is great for bikes with a more upright sitting position. I have one on a seldom ridden bike that I am planning to move to my Fuji when I change it from drop bars to North Road type bars....

    That's the beauty of N+1. None of my bikes have duplicate capabilities, but they do overlap so that if any one was unavailable for whatever reason, another could take its place. There might be a...

    Nope, that includes the carbon wheels and tubeless 29x2.3 tires. Carbon handlebars and seat post and a 1x10 conversion which eliminates the front shifter, derailleur, cabling and the second chainring...

    I had a couple of double squishy bikes for about 5 years before going back to a hardtail last year. They were great fun, but I'm really enjoying my 22 lb hardtail 29er now.

    Choosing which of my bikes best suits the ride I want to go on that day. (Or conversely, choosing what kind of ride I'll do so it suits the bike I want to ride that day.)

    I've been giving my town grief for having the July 4th fireworks on July 3rd. At least they waited until July!

    I plan most of my rides and most of the rides our club does. I'm the route planner guy around here. But sometimes I like to explore new areas. I'll lay out a general plan, but if I don't like the...

    The 70-Mile Mixed Surface Ride at Bicycle Times Adventure Fest Presented by Trek.

    This looks like a good candidate for my 60th birthday ride. My Zukas has 32mm tires which should work just fine.

    Yeah, normal summertime conditions here. You didn't mention humidity, so I'm guessing you don't have the 60-90% readings we typically get.

    Let a little air out of your tires. Ride the lowest pressure you can get away with without getting pinch flats. You'll be amazed what a difference it makes.

    The limit screws control how far in toward the center of the bike (low limit) and how far out from the center (high limit) the front derailleur can move. Be very careful if you adjust these as going...
