    For what it's worth I've seen quite a few couples with bike shorts and jerseys, others with casual clothes, and it has never really occurred to me to think "poser", or poorly of either choice. I...

    Five days always (commuting) but the two weekend days depends on the weather. This summer though I've wound up skipping one of the weekend days, so I guess it's pretty consistently five to seven...

    Just a couple of things I disagree about. I don't believe that the crouch is of any use at all, and I don't believe that holding or sitting on metal makes you more likely to be struck by lighting. ...

    Right, I don't begrudge the 85% chance conservative choice, since I'd choose it again given the same odds. So it's not really choosing wrongly from that perspective. I'm scheduling the ORIF surgery...

    I don't know about that, they're telling me options and what they're saying is pretty standard. I'm frustrated with being charged hundreds for a visit that has no value, and not being able to trust...

    I just don't get it. I have good insurance, my deductible is met and I can afford whatever we need to do. It's not like I'm a difficult patient. Three years ago, in the same original clinic, the...

    Sick of being broken

    I just want to rant about doctors, and I'm old enough to get away with it now. I think.

    About 2 months ago I broke my collarbone, about 2 cm separation. The surgeon persuaded me in the...

    Socrates had the same complaint, around 400 BC. The children in his time had no manners, loved luxury and preferred idle chatter to exercise.

    That's not to say that he was wrong. It's just...

    Is it just me or normal? Riding with a pretty good effort, no hands, I just can't breathe as well. Then I lean forward, hands on the hoods or drops, and all is well again.

    Sure, just look at Strava segments. Halfway in rank on the general boards, around here anyway, is pretty easy.

    How many people even know whether a team is around any more, or whether it was ever a real team for that matter? It is of no consequence.

    Money no object, probably a SuperSix or similar. Even without concern for the price tag I wouldn't see much point in anything more exotic in a standard bicycle.

    All I know is that bumping up your general speed, however you measure it, by 1 mph is a whole lot of work and for me it's worth the effort. Not the extra mph for its own sake, but the improved...

    Not very often. She wants to, and talks about it, and enjoys it when she does, but usually when it's time to fish or cut bait she'll futz around and then beg off.

    Yes something more than just the debris in the gutter for sure. Also maybe stuff sticks better. Whatever it is, I'm convinced that it's a real effect.

    Watch where you're going: don't roll over sticks, puddles of water, areas of broken glass and other debris. Especially after a rain (I'm not 100% sure why) be more careful about it.
