    He used to count to eight every day that he walked to his mailbox. :D

    What lost him the yellow was his French arrogance, at the end of the day. And the fact that Greg rode the hell out of the...

    What does "properly fitting" bike shorts mean? I mean, I take a medium, and when I buy a pair of medium shorts/bibs, aren't they "properly fitting"? Or does the OP have custom shorts made for him?

    No clue. I generally pop a new tube in whenever I get new tires, regardless of whether the old tube has been patched, just because, well, tubes are cheap. And I've been noticing more and more posts...

    My winter bike is an 80s vintage Schwinn Super LeTour, with downtube shifters and 27 x 1-1/4" tires. I can ride it 5, or 50 miles, comfortably.

    LeMond's passiveness was something that Fignon really toasted him for, in his autobiography. Said he never attacked, but rode conservatively and only responded to attacks. Claimed he had "no style"...

    The short answer to your question is yes. In NY (and other states as well), your license can be suspended for a variety of reasons unrelated to operating a motor vehicle. Failure to pay child support...

    How are you folks snapping or bending all those Presta valves? I've never managed to do it even once.

    Don't rock the pump head. Straight push on, straight push off. Palm the tire, push with your...

    Have you tried an electric shaver, or a beard trimmer? Epilators hurt like hell.

    LMAO at the people who think that popping pep pills is the same as chemically bio-engineering the oxygen carrying capacity of your blood. :roflmao2:

    Only Hinault really knows for sure whether he was trying to prevent LeMond from winning in 1986. In 1989 and 1990, Greg was clearly the team leader, so his teammates were all riding to support him.

    None. In fact, almost all of his contemporaries, including Cyrille Guimard and Fignon, who had no real love for him after the 1989 Tour, maintained that he always raced clean. And Fignon had nothing...

    Don't forget that the 30 for 30 was told from an American perspective. Yeah, Hinault was arrogant. Most of the great ones were or are.

    I wouldn't know whether someone was staring at me. I keep my eyes where they belong---on the road, and on other riders if I'm in a group.

    Even if I did know---I wouldn't care. :D

    Whether he was sincere or not, it's no longer up to him alone. Cannondale has a huge say in this. His pledge predates the merger by a good number of years.

    I get the resistance to wearing tight bike shorts. I don't agree with it, but at least I get it.
