    There is no need to compete against anyone but yourself on Strava (and even that can be ignored). It can be fun to see a map of your ride and have a record of some of the stats.

    I recall Lance having some pretty harsh words for those doping cheaters, too. It's a case of 'as long as it's not me, ban 'em for life!'

    You may just be able to take two identical freehubs and graft a reversed ratcheting section from one freehub into the other (machine the ratchet zone away from one freehub and machine everything else...

    Not only that, because the chain keeps getting more narrow the front derailleur cage is also similarly adjusted. You may find that you get slow or no shifting in one direction depending on how you...

    They are probably steel so you can try attaching a big powerful magnet to a stick and 'sweeping' the area where you were working. I have used this technique to recover tiny springs that I dropped...

    They buy them because they are the 'best' of both worlds: (almost) as tall gearing as a standard double, (almost) as low gearing as a triple), and (almost) as easy setup and maintenance as a standard...

    Way too big for me so it loses a point, but it still gets a 99/100 in my gradebook.

    You gotta admit those rings, regardless of their merit as a pedal stroke enhancer, look totally out of place on that Shimano crank. On a more classic looking crank they'd probably work on that bike....

    While I agree it takes longer than a double crank, it is nowhere near ridiculously long if you know what you are doing. It has nothing to do with luck if you understand what each adjustment is doing...

    One of the dumber things I've done in my past was riding a solo 125 mile ride in December and doing it without stopping (aside from a pee break or two). That meant carrying a 100 oz. Camelbak full of...

    Hoping to absorb some digital EPO overflowing from other's forum posts. I've heard it works. Like getting high by licking a frog.

    Looking at all the latest iterations of Shimano's groupsets, the only triples left are Tiagra and lower. Ultegra 6700 had a triple version, too. So did Dura Ace 7800.

    There are least three claims in this thread of 50 mile rides in 2.5 hours total. I assume that means door-to-door. It couldn't possibly be a slight exaggeration of the reality. Couldn't be....

    I'm less impressed by claims of not needing anything to eat on a 50 miles ride (I don't typically eat on a ride of that length either) than I am by all the 20mph average rides door-to-door that you...

    For Shimano users at least, the question becomes do you really need anything better than Tiagra (now with 10 speeds and hidden shifter housing)? I've heard enough people on this forum that have made...

    Most people can't adjust their own stuff and shops would rather not spend the little bit of extra time to get a triple shifting right (the middle ring does require more finely set tension than a...

    Not only that, Shimano's triple FD for the 6600 series has a cage that is so finely matched to that 39T middle ring that you can't use it with a 42T middle ring. I tried. The 5603 FD will shift a...
