    What's also interesting is that there doesn't appear to be scientific evidence of a benefit to using statins once you reach age 70. But I bet many doctors still continue to prescribe them over that...

    I better not get rained on again this evening. At least my bike looks clean today so I don't have to wash it for another 2 weeks.

    I'd look at the Trek Emonda H2 geometry. The one with 11s Shimano 105 is a great deal and it's supposed to have a great ride. The Roubaix SL4 is every bit as stiff as a race bike. I can't even ride...

    It just depends on what your plans are with the wheels. Many people upgrade them pretty quickly. I had a 2013 SL4 Expert loaner for a few weeks during the warranty process and can tell you from...

    The biggest expense is a rear wheel with an 11sp hub. If you don't own one, or plan to upgrade the wheels, you need to factor that into your budget. Then you'll need an entire 11sp groupset plus some...

    I own a 2014 with 11sp 105. See if they'll throw in the CG-R seat post. The new ones come with it and it really makes a difference on the very stiff SL4 Roubaix frame.

    I think that's a fair...

    I got rained on today. Weather.com said no rain until late but I didn't really believe it looking at the radar...I never learn. Apparently neither do the tourists. Lots of them were trying to flee...

    After getting rained out yesterday, I felt like I could've set a 20' power PR today if it wasn't so humid. Then it poured rain on me to add insult to injury.

    You might want to look at Power2Max and the new Powertap crank based PM. I wouldn't personally go with a single-sided power meter with the recent price drops in the market.

    And what I'm suggesting is you make your holes perfectly round with the help of a drill bit :)

    I've used Speedplay Light Action and they require very little torque to release.

    Just for aesthetics. That uneven carbon fiber around the hole serves no purpose structurally. It should've been trimmed away at the factory. A drill bit would make quick work of it. Just make sure...

    I think he's kidding since there's no such thing as carbon spackle. It makes sense that they need holes with carbon dropouts. Before metal dropouts are bonded to a frame they have a spot at the base...

    I've learned not to complain about missing rides due to rain during the drought. It's not supposed to rain in July here though (to answer your question.) I expect we'd get even less sympathy if we...

    I bought an aero road bike and it's now my main rig. I would make sure you get on with the ride quality of the Venge before you buy it. The one I rode was quite a bit stiffer than the Tarmac I rode...

    They're definitely not rack mounts. I think the irregularity is more from the excess carbon fiber not being trimmed away so it just looks worse (which is highlighted by the light paint color.)

    You definitely don't want to use a GPS based speed estimate if you have a speed sensor. The speed sensor is way more accurate. I'm guessing the Garmin is giving priority to the speedometer data to...

    My 2015 Cervelo S2 has something very similar on the back of the seat stays in the same location on both sides (although the holes are not as big.) I'm guessing this is a common place they hook air...

    Using the stock FSA PF-30 BB on my S2. Had to knock my NDS crank arm out with a hammer but it wasn't too hard. I use a paperback book to cushion the blow.

    I have the same setup. Sucks but at least it should be an easy fix.

    I live in a wealthy zip code. Lots of Bentleys are brand new Porsche 911's around here and I would never dream of leaving a $3500 bike on a bike rack with a cable lock. And not just because of the...
