    Researched a line of my family and found the namesake was a monk named Alasdair Mor. I thought that was a cool name.

    Components and aesthetics (both look and feel) determine which is the best bike. I have a 2006 Fuji Team Pro and love it. If I had a Trek Madone, I'd love it too. The BESTest bike is the one that you...

    Same here, but my "recovery rides" last until the first Strava segment. I find that when life keeps me off the bike for several days, soreness goes away and I am much stronger on my rides.

    +1. We are an iPhone family so we all have it. Even with a ride buddy so he will know when I am near to "pick him up" along our route.

    The last metric I rode (64.5 miles) was just at 2000ft of climbing. My usual 25 mile loop has right around 1200 ft of climbing. I'm a fat boy, so hills suck.

    Go for it. Just pull the old drab tires off. Those now become spares or trainer tires. Bike is happy and you are happy.
