    My first order to the UK was to PBK and it never made it to me, so I let them know. After some reasonable waiting period -- about a month -- they sent me a form to sign saying that I never go it. ...

    Nah, you're just being helpful. Seeing what you buy makes me feel like I have at least a little bit of restraint! ;)

    All bicycle helmets sold in the U.S. have to meet the same standard. Whether they all protect similarly is anyone's guess, and probably varies with the type of impact.

    If you can live w/ last year's colors, you can find a Synthe for less. A random search brought up an example for $170, you might be able to better elsewhere:

    Like smarkinson, I too thought you were joking (sorry!). Indeed, you've just come up with another crazy standard for distance in classic English/Imperial fashion, which is the reason the metric...

    It's got nothing to do with what 'sounds' good; instead, it has everything to do with choosing a scale that is appropriate to use. Climbs are measured in feet or meters because that works for a...

    Strava tells me that in 2015 I've ridden 7,006.7 miles, with 250,518 feet of elevation gain, during 199 rides; doesn't include commuting which probably adds a few hundred easy miles.

    That's more...

    For many of us, the GPS isn't for mapping routes during a ride (though some Garmins will do that), but for real-time speed. That means there is no need for a wheel magnet -- you just drop the Garmin...
