    Before that I had a full carbon Trek 5200 (2000). I put a ton of miles on that bike...

    If the hill is steep enough, I get really aero and stop pedaling. I read somewhere that above about 25 mph, you are better off coasting in a tucked position from an energy standpoint. The legs...

    If you buy a new $650 bike and treat it like that, you'll be spending $3K in repair costs pretty quickly. Add your health insurance deductibles and co-pays to the top of that.

    While I love bib shorts, I find them hotter than regular shorts. Hot weather is one reason that I keep a couple of pairs of regular shorts around.

    Ditto on the sunscreen. Those little beads of...

    For the Kansas to St. Louis segment, I highly recommend getting on the Katy Trail. Great scenery and little traffic. I'd recommend 700x28 tires or a little wider.

    I'd look at the saddle adjustment. Nose up too far? Do you find yourself sliding forward on the nose of the saddle? Seat too high?
