    It's a variation of the rubber dinosaur phenomena that is well known to IT professionals.

    I refused to let EMTs cut off my Descent 7/11 jersey. They said it would hurt like hell and it did. It only had a tiny little scrape on it and I wore it for years after that crash.

    I have, but I think the discussion is about riding safely by yourself being posted in A&S.

    Racing has certainly become more reckless than it used to be.

    My experience is that this is a 2-3mph loss.

    That's why you can't really compare different courses or different days on the same course.

    You want what is called 3M helicopter tape.
    It' a little pricey, but it will absolutely do the job.

    Pretty much completely invisible when applied correctly and extremely tough.

    I LOVE Dura Ace hubs. But the 10 speed wheels can't be upgraded to 11 so if you're ever thinking of moving to the new 11 speed groups, keep that in mind.
