    It's still not clear to me that she actually rode the bike in the race, let alone used the motor. My understanding is, just having it there, among the team bikes, is a big no-no. Her knowledge and...

    I was going to ask, what does your doctor advise? But then I saw that it happened two months ago and you haven't seen a doctor yet.

    I can only speak to 5700/6700. I had 6700 on a bike that was wrecked by a car. I stripped down the frame, and the 6700 stuff is in the basement.

    My replacement bike has 5700. I haven't had the...

    I'm 6'2" and my spot on size is a 60 in a Madone/Emonda, a 58 in a Synapse or a Tarmac, and a 57 in a LeMond.

    See where I'm going with this? ;)

    And most people say, err on the smaller size as...

    I call it riding across a cheese grater where you are the cheese. That means I approach it very carefully, and use the sidewalk if there's even a hint of moisture in the air. Morning dew can be as...

    How far down the rankings of orchestras do you want to go----here's the Valdosta Symphony with a few guest performers---10 trumpeters, and not a single Bb in sight. ;)

    With a good bike fit, and proper pedaling technique, cycling puts minimal stress on the body. If by joint pain you mean knee pain, that can be the result of mashing a high gear at slow cadence,...

    Between those two extremes there's a happy medium. If you can afford the $6K, you can afford a $2500 top line alloy frame with Ultegra or Force and wheels that aren't boat anchors.

    In all fairness, Coppi was no stranger to doping---he talked about it quite openly.

    Of course, what he was doing wasn't illegal at the time. ;)
