    Niiiiiiiiice.

    I used to go to Colorado Springs for work a lot and would take my Ritchey Break-Away. Unfortunately bikes weren't allowed to the top of Pikes Peak then (I think there was one day a...

    Yeah, it has been closed for years. I bought my first set of cleated shoes there ~1988.

    I didn't know the owner by name but by appearance. He was at this years Sierra Century volunteering at one...

    This^2.

    When I did my first couple months of FTP tests (at 20 or 30min), I came in low to what I was able to do for a true hour long (climbing effort). I'd start at your FTP, and towards the end...

    I have the same forced-AppStore problem on my iOS devices and I do have popups in Safari blocked. Annoying enough that it is driving me away to other forums.

    I do think disabling JavaScript will...

    Who buys Rapha yet owns a top-loading washing machine? Personally I put all my fancy kit in the dishwasher on the china setting.

    I have two Polar bottles and two Camelbak insulated bottles from...

    No posts in a long time.

    Who is coming up/on their way to the Mt Tam Double? My favorite double, I'll be there on my road bike this year.

    $85-100 for the basic Pebble on Amazon. And the watch works for a week between charges.

    I hate wearing a watch, but at that price point (I actually bought the steel for ~$120) I decided to give...

    I have a Pebble Steel that I bought after the Apple Watch was released (think Pebble had just dropped the price). I don't know what it can do besides showing phone/iMessage/email notifications, but...

    Man-hands and mine have always come right off. One of those thin rubber mats they use for helping open jars by hand would probably help if you can't get a grip otherwise.

    Being from Sacramento/NorCal and having ridden all of those areas, I'd probably take the road bike. So many places to ride (Fresno this time of year ain't the greatest (ok, anytime of the year)),...

    I'd like to drop a huge wad (going back to OP post) this fall on a Domane with Di2, or similar endurance bike, but I've had too many bikes in the garage that have gone unridden for too long (at least...

    Here's mine. I don't have a aero belly or a beard, though with ~290W FTP I do go pretty fast on the flats (not so fast on the climbs, way too fast on the descents). I've concluded it's faster than...

    I ride recumbents vs road 50/50. Recumbents mostly for double centuries for the comfort (and I've finished Alta Alpina's 200mi/20k ft of climbing on one), base/endurance training (5hr flat century...

    I saw "steel is real", and concur as a steel rider. I just roll my eyes.

    My number one annoyance is calling a bike (or computer, or Jeep) a "rig". WTF?

    I've used Dominators for years (on MTB for 10+ years, a different pair for road for ~5 years). They are comparably stiff to Geniuses.

    My only issue with them is the super thin insoles, but...

    I haven't ridden Davis since 2013, but the years I have ridden it, I've wondered what the role of those corner workers were. I've never seen them stopping traffic to let a group roll through, and I...

    You can download Garmin's Basecamp software and replicate the route in it then download it to your device. Otherwise you could probably find an existing route on ridewithgps or mapmyride.

    Looks like it'll be perfect weather.

    I'm skipping this year; finally going to mix it up and try some new doubles (Eastern Sierra maybe, Terrible Two for the Stage Race jersey definitely).

    Doh. I retract what I said about the 11-34. If you already have an 11-30, the 34T won't make that big of a difference. I have 24T grannies on my road triples, they are all unramped/pinned, and they...

    XT long cage derailleur and the 11-34 cassette and you'll be set. Note that MTB rear derailleurs don't have barrel adjusters, so unless you already have some inline, you'll want to add an adjuster. ...
