    I'm not likely to be able to come, but I won't rule it out either. I'll keep an eye on the plans as they develop and see if I can swing a road trip.

    I think the concept of an "official" 50+Ride...

    Might as well get used to the idea that every challenge is a shopping opportunity. :)

    I keep one bike set up with cage/platform/flat/whatever pedals or quick neighborhood rides, store runs etc. because it is more convenient. For the vast majority of my riding, whether athletic road...

    Because for many of us, the argument for triples was much more compelling when we rode on 6, 7 or 8 speed systems. This was only a few years ago for me.

    I rode a 30-40-50 triple with a 13-23 7...

    The way I see it is that I have done cross state rides many times where for six or more consecutive days we rode at least 50 miles. Does that mean I've done a triple century? Of course not.

    I was a big fan of triple cranks on my 7 speed drivetrains, but as the typical setups have evolved with each successive additional rear cog, I find it less needed, especially with smaller front...

    The old recommendations about crotch clearance were based on level top tube bikes of standard geometry and worked for most averagely proportioned people of various heights. When you get right down to...

    That is the main reason I'd like to see them change the name of the ride. A two day 210 mile ride is quite an accomplishment and shouldn't be saddled with the negative reaction invited by calling it...

    Thanks. Not looking to do anything special, just to enjoy a ride. I used to consider myself a long distance rider until I found out that so many people, like those of you posting here, were regularly...
  17. What do you call 2 100+ mile rides in 2 days?

    I'm planning to do a two day ride in May that covers 110 miles on day one and 100 miles on day two. The organizers are calling it a double century, but that doesn't seem right. I would think that...

    I can't speak for all bike shops, but at the one where I work, dropping by with a 6 pack of good craft brew will move you rapidly toward the front of the line for good deals and prompt service. ;)

    That is a pretty limited budget for a better bike, but a healthy budget for improving your CX bike.

    If you were looking to spend $1K-$2K (or more), I'd recommend a used carbon endurance bike like...

    I could definitely run narrower tires on the Iron Cross rims, but with narrower tires, the 45psi max pressure that Stan's recommends would have been a limitation I'd rather not have. I would want to...

    I ran 40mm Clement MSO tires tubeless on Stans Iron Cross rims for about a year. Those rims had a 45psi max pressure rating. I usually ran about 30-35f, 35-45r. On the low end of that range for dirt...
