    Saturday looks like it will be dry - but cooler - up GMR area. The last few weekends up there have been nice, except the descents have been cold. I was fine with full finger spring type gloves,...

    Helmet saved the day. Front light was working fine - not sure if it was blink mode or not, but it is bright. The driver probably just wasn't looking for a cyclist coming down the hill at speed.

    +1 I had my fitting done with Steven, including the cleats on my shoes and he spent pretty much an entire day with me (although it was a flat fee so it didn't cost me $100 per hour). He is very...

    I think we are all already scofflaws, violating CVC 21201 - riding without all those cool reflectors. I can only imagine what the "high visibility safety apparel" in the proposed Bill will...

    I felt that way when Don was there. Are you still feeling confident and, if so, which mechanic? I have been in once since Don left and the bike was not set up properly
