    You could always hop the Worcester/Framingham commuter rail line out to Grafton, which is most of the way out there.

    I do prefer SPD shoes for my road bike, so that limits my choices. If I...

    Sure! Home from Purgatory - A bike ride in Sutton, MA Pretty sure I cribbed most of it from one of Pamela Blalock's routes -- it's got a lot of fussy turns, some of which aren't well signed, so a...

    Happy belated birthday, Jim!

    I didn't get out yesterday, but today my husband had to be at Purgatory Chasm, so I threw my bike in the car. One-way rides are nice, since you see more new...

    I have a pair in one of the sizes that aren't made in the Marathon Winter (16"/ETRTO 30-349), so I can't compare the two, but I had no complaints with them.

    Have said this before and not succeeded, but have high hopes for this year being my first full SR series. (Plan to just do my local one, the Boston one.) The Cleveland-Cincinnati-Cleveland 1000k...

    Both places. Same basic brake locations as suicide levers, but actually safe and effective. The original brake levers (or brifters) work normally, and you have a second option on the tops with full...

    "Suicide" levers, the combo levers, did not brake well from the tops because the design was terrible. Although I see people using them every day on vintage bikes just fine, but they don't have the...

    And thebulls made Brest in good time (since he didn't post his number himself, I won't, but it's not that difficult to track him down from the RUSA list of riders).

    I have the predecessor to the Phantom, which is basically the same bike. It's great. It freewheels like a real bike, and is much quieter than our old trainer (it's perfectly possible to watch TV at...

    Seconded. I did a 145-miler (200k permanent + to/from the start) as the maiden voyage when I got my first carbon-soled shoes, and had no regrets. But I did have my wrenches with me, and I was pretty...

    I'm happy with my Fizik Vesta. Shorts are even more dependent on fit, so I'd start with what you can find and try on locally. (I like minimal padding; like tri-short levels of padding, myself.)

    No, I only have it if I don't have my foot clipped-in and resting way far in front of its normal position, which I don't really think counts.

    Yeah. I think people are weirdly obsessed with bashing city riders who really, really want to avoid it for understandable reasons -- a wobble in Boston traffic means cars doing SO MANY weird things...

    I will admit I've never gotten the hang of that dismount/remount over the top tube. I am flexible enough I can get a tiptoe down with the saddle in the right place for my knees, and just do that. ...

    Well, I haven't had an 11-23 and a 11-25, but as a fellow athena/clyde I swapped my 11-28 on my rando bike to an 11-36 (required a new derailleur) and never looked back. When I need those gears, I...
