    Right. You posted as I was writing my previous note. So rebuilding is the cheapest option. But this is why I was leaning to (c) - for a little more money I get a new wheel and have a dedicated...

    Thanks for your advice so far. I am not going to replace the rim by myself. I have neither the know-how, the interest, nor the tooling. I do minor maintenance myself, but rebuilding the wheel...

    What to do with a compromised rear wheel?

    I got bumped from behind by another cyclist (as we were both coming to a stop at a light), and my Velocity Aerohead 700c wheel went way out of true. The guy at the LBS says that the rim is dinged...

    I don't tend to add salt to my food, but actually, I don't think that that quick shake of the salt shaker is the danger, if there is one - the mass of salt you add that way is tiny, unless you pour...

    A tire without history of trauma should not be worrisome at 2500 miles. Is the tire tread showing very visible wear? I'm not familiar with the SportContact, but if you are the type to worry about...

    What Felt is he riding? My Felt (2011 F3 Ltd) weighs in at just under 16, with pedals. As compared to the relatively heavy OEM wheels, the upgrade to HED helped some.

    I don't know the specifics of this tragedy, but my impression of that area has been that it is blessed with some very safe roads - good surfaces, wide shoulders, good sight lines, etc. Which makes...

    patronizing much?



    Hard to parse. As written it seems to imply that the training trumps the diet, which of course, was the initial assumption, though I think you mean the opposite - that a...

    I have Panaracer Pasela's on one of my bikes. - 700c 25 mm in my case, but I too like that sidewall look.

    The pedal forward geometry strikes me as something alien, but I'm glad it works for you.

    I guess most of us have been sold on the idea that we need balanced electrolytes (K, Mg, Ca, etc.) rather than just NaCl, to ward off cramps and such. but on the other hand, if you are needing a ton...
