    Personally, I'd get a powermeter first and implement a structured training program. That will be of more benefit, albeit harder, than buying a new bike.

    You'd have to try the brakes on the crossrip. I know the hydraulic disks on my MTB require less pressure than standard rim brakes, not sure if that applies to the mechanical disks on the crossrip.

    Depends where you're riding I suppose. If you're nearer to the front there will be plenty of riders used to racing and they won't care. If it's just a friendly club riding together in matching...

    That doesn't really apply in a large fondo. No permission required as drafting is expected.

    If you're a stronger cyclist try and get as close to the front as possible. Keep passing people until...

    Depends how you commute. I commuted by bike 183 days last year for a total of 12,000km. Another 3,000km or so on the weekends. I basically ride for an hour every 12 hrs during the week. I throw in a...

    I don't think there's much of a market for new hardware but maybe if you could add an app to a Garmin or other device that's already on the bars. Personally I don't really want anything larger than a...

    No, there are apps like glympse you can use to share your position but most riders in a group aren't looking at their phones.

    Most group rides are on the roads on know routes and the meetup...

    Shouldn't really make much of a difference. Unless you're sprinting or hammering up a hill, you don't need to be pulling up on the cleats.

    You should have the legs and lungs to do 200km. Stand up on the bike every 10 or 20 minutes to get some blood flowing in your butt. Between now and then try and ride every day for at least an hour,...

    You're young or new to cycling. They've been questioned (and answered) before. At least with respect to foot position on the pedals. But there's nothing wrong with experimenting.

    I'm not clear on the relevance of being salaried. You still need to be time efficient and going for a 12min stroll when you're needed urgently could be a problem in the eyes of others.

    I mainly meant during the ride. Particularly if you're going to double the distance I think some carbs would help. I've done 100 miles without any carbs but I wasn't trying to make any particular...

    Congrats on the ride. I hope I'm riding as well at 66!

    If you did 50 miles at 21.4 and it was an out and back I think 100 @ 20 is well within reach and I'd almost say easy. You could ride the 100...
