    I do see that there's a group probably meeting up at DK Donuts in SM and riding to DTLA so I may do it.

    It's happened a few times to me here in Santa Monica or Brentwood. He had a few fund raising dinners at Gwyneth Paltrow's house. The area was swarming with police.

    I did qualify my statement, the BDB is a nice machine, especially if you want to just walk up and pull a shot. But my inner coffee geek wouldn't let me buy one. I don't even think my Gaggia Classic...

    Still pretty new to the machine so I can't say for sure how long the cooling flush is on average. I have an E61 thermometer on it now that lets me flush to the same temp each time. The US distributor...

    45-60 minutes to heat up. Many people put them on a 15A timer so it's ready for them when they wake up.

    Paid $1050, it's one of the cheapest E61 heat exchanger machines out there. It's massive (looks much bigger in person) but I think all of the machines in this class are.

    I assume what happens is the tight link can't wrap around the jockey wheel and so it jams and the high torque causes the twisting motion. The rear wheel and pedal stopped at the same so I assume it...

    Stiff Chain Link Causing RD Hanger Failure?

    My RD hangar snapped upon setting off for my ride yesterday. I had just pedaled about 20ft, shifted down, but not onto the lowest cog, when I heard a bang and the rear wheel and pedals locked up....

    I run a 52/36 11-28. I think I'm going to switch to an 11-26 cassette when I wear out the 11-28. I rarely drop down to the 36/28 and the 3 cog jump from 19-22-25 can be pretty annoying on the big...

    These numbers were all from the early days of doping. They didn't even have a test that could detect EPO back then. I have no idea what you can get away with today and still beat the tests. On the...

    Yes seriously, it won't raise your FTP. You need EPO for that. Cycling is an aerobic sport. Extra muscle mass could help anaerobic efforts at the expense of power to weight ratio. Notice how the...
