    I purchased and enjoyed the NBC app two years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the app and the tour. I have it again this year. Day 1 was terrific and I watched the stage hours after it concluded when I...

    If I'm in Los Angeles, where I live, I'll stop at red lights if other cars are present. To do otherwise would be rude.

    If I'm in NYC, which is a few times a year, I never stop for red lights, and...

    I've had a Specialized Allez for a little over a week. A good friend gave me the bike, at least while he's off to live in New York City for the next few or several years. Maybe he'll forget he loaned...

    A good friend gave me his bike while he's off to live in New York City for the next few or several years. This appears to be a Specialized model produced about 1985. Apparently the bike was ridden...

    The (Temporary) Gift of an Allez

    A good friend gave me his bike while he's off to live in New York City for the next few or several years. I'm not sure of the year, although my friend thinks it's a 1985 model. He picked it up for a...

    Bike One: 52/39, 12-28

    Bike Two: 50/34, 12-27

    I can't tell much of a difference except on the steepest climbs (12% and above). The standard cranks are a little harder to turn. (And I'm 67.)

    Oh, the ironies.

    First, I don't think, as you wrote, that I have a "cancer link" in either of my two posts on this subject. Are you confusing me with someone else?

    I've worn cycling clothes since 1975. I have bibs and I wear them. As per above, I pair them with full zip jerseys.

    However, I'm another contrarian here. Bibs weigh more than shorts. On warm days...

    You could have mentioned how tough the hills were when you opened the thread. Hills that are 16-20% are difficult for most cyclists, way beyond what most people ride. Given you're weight, you might...
