    I used to be on the Internets long before most of the noobs here were even a twinkle in the eye of virtual reality. If you're incapable of discerning how to write your posts, you are dead to me.

    Rapha (my favorite place as some of you know) is having a sale and I bought a merino pro team jersey in sky colors for $70 - it's white, with blue and black stripes and is comfy and very lightweight ...

    I had a lot of back and knee pain in my 40s and then took up an intense cross training regimen (not cross fit FYI). That and losing 70 pounds or so has been the best thing I've ever done for my body....

    Boxing and cross training which means a whole lot of sit-ups, push-ups, TRX workouts, squats, lunges, free weights, swimming, balance stuff and a tiny bit of running.

    Question for you then: do you use the included arch supports? How did you decide which was the best fit? I think the out-of-the-box fit is excellent except for slightly too much pressure on the ball...

    Thanks. No hurries at the moment (as in I'm not really looking to couple up right now) and just for the record, I'm mostly living in Northern California. A tiny town in Sonoma County with plenty of...

    Thanks. I'm the last person to criticize anybody's outfits. There's lots of stuff I don't like or won't wear. But I can't begrudge anyone else from wearing it. My motto is: ride like nobody's...

    Ha. It does speak highly of finding like-minded people. I never understood his derision actually. He spent a lot of money on his hobbies. I figured it was fair game. (And just for the record, we...

    They are having a sale on their website right now but I have discovered if you can find a store that carries Rapha, chances are you'll get a better deal there. Sadly, the shoes are not on sale online...

    Billboard. Proud of it. I like the look and I love the fit and I don't care about anything except that I'm visible to drivers. Not for nothing but even when you wear stuff without ad logos, most...

    I was in LA this weekend and stopped into a store there that sells Rapha. They had the same climbers shoes I bought two weeks ago for $300 ($100 off retail) for 40 percent off. The ones I bought were...
