    I gave blood last week and forgot that it takes a while to get all that stuff back to normal but I still gave the 400K a try. I managed to finish in 24.5 hours but it wasn't very much, felt like I...

    I rode bmx platforms on a 300k brevet a few weeks ago. No one said **** about them then, sounds like you need some new riding friends and probably just chill out a little bit. My traditional response...

    Have you used butterfly handlebars before? They aren't everyone's cup of tea. You could have also built the bike around 700c wheels if you wanted, they are available at almost any Canadian Tire store...
