    Start with liners, briefs as mentioned above. They may dri-fit shorts work great, and they far less expensive than quality cycling shorts or bibs. If they get hot, move to cycling shorts.

    Years ago I bought a bike from BD for a special project, a very positive experience. Easy to assemble if you have few basic bike tools, I went a step further to re-grease the headset and bottom...

    There is a tad more science in HIIT work-outs, e.g. duration of HI, duration of recovery, number of repeats, structure of those 45-60 minutes. Same with running interval training, it's not just fast...

    My spouse started on a crank forward Giant, you go back some years and they used to be fairly lightweight and very stable. That worked well, saved her knees, and over the years she's graduated to...

    I'll ride a '72 Miyata or circa 83 Univega when weekend riding with the wife, both bikes are joys. Those who haven't experienced the vintage steel on 27" wheels are missing something, they are...

    Awesome, but kinda insane. You must have the heat tolerance of a lizard,...I'm jealous.
  7. Hit the wall on Briones-Mt. Diablo Trail -- HOT !

    Lesson learned, stay away from Mt. Diablo trails on hot days. Tuesday, not a speck of shade, at 11am it felt like it over 100. Gasping for air after each hill, then my FD cable broke. I found the...

    My wife's favorite bike is a new $1700 Mixte, 6061 Al with a 10 speed cassette, compact crank.

    Finding a 'vintage ladies bike' that wasn't a hi ten boat anchor was a challenge, we almost ended...

    This is NYC, not Scottsdale, Ariz. It's part of the gritty nature of the city for adventurous young riders to throw themselves into the chaos of the streets. If you are a NYer and you don't like...

    Spin class. You can do standing, sitting interval pulls, ten minute max efforts. If you bonk in zone 5, you just stop. Being a oldster I'll pass along the warning that your development of your...

    35-40 years old, and it looks great. But this is not modern, specifically purposed stainless steel and lighter weight construction; the ride experience is nothing to brag about.

    I have a lowly AB2, but Tree Amigos & sprinter fork. I am in the slow process of converting it to e-assist for back woods exploring. Love the Barracuda motif.

    I'd argue it depends on body type and adaptation. I've been intermittent fasting for two years, so no food for first 10 hours of the day. I do hi-intensity work-outs twice a week, and I've added...

    Kool Stop makes Mountain Pads, including dual compound if you expect wet trails. Best I've used. Cantilever brakes are excellent if you put in the time to appreciate how they work best and require...
