    I'm going with it's a mental thing.

    OP, you will love the insane workout you get when you graduate to an electric bike. And that...

    I would be amazed if you could feel as much difference between wheels as you could between tire sizes and the amount of pressure in those tires.

    I think the Panasonic ZS50 is an excellent choice for people who cycle. It's a very small digicam with a field of view equal to a 24-720mm zoom lens on a full-frame camera. The camera has an...

    Like you, I was born in 1948. I briefly raced in the 1970s. I've had a heart attack. I don't know how high my heart rate went before my heart attack. I know I can get it up to 180 without too much...

    If I'm in Los Angeles, where I live, I'll stop at red lights if other cars are present. To do otherwise would be rude.

    If I'm in NYC, which is a few times a year, I never stop for red lights, and...

  14. My New (Approximately) 1985 Specialized Allez

    I've had a Specialized Allez for a little over a week. A good friend gave me the bike, at least while he's off to live in New York City for the next few or several years. Maybe he'll forget he loaned...

    The (Temporary) Gift of an Allez

    Bike One: 52/39, 12-28

    Bike Two: 50/34, 12-27

    I can't tell much of a difference except on the steepest climbs (12% and above). The standard cranks are a little harder to turn. (And I'm 67.)

    Oh, the ironies.

    First, I don't think, as you wrote, that I have a "cancer link" in either of my two posts on this subject. Are you confusing me with someone else?
