    Well that sucks! Bike thieves should be treated like horse thieves. Keep an eye on Craigslist. Chances are it will show up on there shortly. Contact all your local pawn shops too.

    I'm going to spend the next three weeks doing shorter, higher intensity rides. Should I do another long one (75ish) Labor Day Weekend or just keep the next two Saturday rides to under 50? Did 46...

    I think I over counted... I try to drink one per 10 miles and a lot of times it's more like 15. Unless it's really hot. I also still weigh almost 270, down from 420 lbs in October, 2014. Really...

    My CAAD9 isn't harsh at all either. The 10 is supposedly even better, but I'm keep eying my USA made bike as long as it lasts.

    That Roubaix is pretty nice especially if he's truly only ridden it 4-5x's - which I've seen but usually with mid-level aluminum not mid-level CF. it's a proven frame from a proven manufacturer with...

    Not all aluminum bikes are the same. The Cannondale Synapse is a very nice ride. To the point if you didn't know it was aluminum and had preconceived ideas that all aluminum bikes were harsh, you'd...

    1500-1800 calories a day. One serving of starch per day and that is a high quality starch - usually steel cut oats. The rest of my calories are lean meat, Greek yogurt, vegetables and fruits.

    The CAAD10(now 12) is Cannondale's aggressive bike. The CAAD8 is a more relaxed version, not as much of a heads up ride as the Synapse, but not as aggressive as the CAAD10/12. Similar to the H2 fit...

    Nice bike. Good compromise between the aggressive geometry of the CAAD10/12 and the endurance geometry Synapse. 105 is a nice group. You two should have many happy years together.

    Right. I'll probably build a set of Dyads and try to find some NOS White Industries 10-speed hubs since the last generation aren't 11-speed compatible. Hoping to have all the parts in place by...

    I'm in the same boat as a Clydesdale. At my ideal weight, I'll still be a Clydesdale and even at quite a bit under ideal, I'll still be a Clydesdale. I don't mind though. And yes, BMI is a ridiculous...

    For me, my CAAD9 has SRAM Rival 10-speed and I really like it, having test ridden several 105 and Ultegra built bikes over the last couple of years. I prefer SRAM. I'm going to keep the CAAD9 until...

    I wouldn't trust the government resources either. The amount of lobbying that impacts our food recommendations by the government is shameful.

    If I ate what MFP said I should, I'd still weigh 400 lbs... I follow the plan my nutritionist set for me.

    You sound like a prime candidate for a Gunnar Sport. Not particularly exotic but a reasonably priced custom steel frame that you can build any way you wish.

    Yes. But you should probably see a fitter first and have them help get you the best position. You may be better off with 120 with a slight rise.
