    ??? I've never been able to take one back. A brief "sorry, didn't mean to hit the kudo button" does seem to shut down the comments tho.

    This January has been my highest volume month in at least the last two years. I started bike commuting mid-month when one of our cars was out, and am going trying to stick with it.

    ??? US Postal Service collected duty a couple years ago when I ordered bike parts (I don't recall from where and how much my order was -- it was likely Chain Reaction Cycles though).

    Three separate orders on Ribble placed on 1/21, so likely shipped on their 1/22, all arrived today on the west coast (so 6-7 days).

    A single order to Wiggle on 1/19 hasn't arrived yet (still under...

    Gives you the option anyways. I have several Ultegra 6600 triples and they all came with 39 middle rings.

    I have a recumbent that I need wide gearing on (is 54/39/26x11-32) and I'd looked at the...

    I figured it would have happened before now (after many years of hot double centuries), but you may be right. I know I've been drinking less on the bike when it has been cold, and maybe that carried...

    If running a daily calorie deficit, are the glycogen stores as full as they would be otherwise?

    I was already accustomed to a healthy (not huge) deficit when I increased my volume from ~8hr to...

    Maybe it was over in the Training forum, but a singlespeed/fixed gear bike does not do well on trainers that vary the resistance by wheel speed. Trainers with (remotely controlled) resistance levers...

    Regrettable. If you've got the room to keep them, and the money to afford them, it's always easier to have a bike for the situation.

    I used my Ritchey Breakaway CX bike for both roads and...

    Since this is the 41 and not C&V, I'll suggest you ride the singlespeed cause everyone will think you are a badass, and at charity ride paces it doesn't matter if you have gears.

    I recently bought the Performance aluminum frame to use as my dedicated mounted-in-the-trainer bike. It has a Chris King headset on it now -- a headset that costs more than the frame itself (though...

    My VAM went from 900 to 990 for the same Powertap-measured effort (~280W) on 13x repeats of a 0.5mi 9% hill between my steel Ritchey Break-Away and carbon Tarmac Pro.

    Tarmac weighs 4lbs less than...

    Growing up/riding ~100mi from Mt. Tam in the 80's, Ritchey was a name I knew well, and Breezer one I never heard of. It wasn't until I had a custom frame built in mid-2000's that I heard of Breezer...

    I've not seen it mentioned, but the Edge 520 moved the start/stop and lap buttons to the bottom edge of the case, and when mounted in the K-Edge the buttons are far more awkward to reach than any...

    You're likely to get a lousy workout from a Kurt Kinetic because it's resistance is dictated by wheel speed. With the SS the resistance will vary only in conjunction with your cadence. You really...
