Nuun contains Sorbitol. Like almost all sugar free sweeteners it can cause gas and bloating when ingested. The wiki notes this under "Overdose Effects" but even a much smaller dose will cause...
I hold my line.
A triathlete whining about something?
The mind boggles.
You have to ask the right questions.
Nobody anywhere knows what a "Overlap Clearance" measurement is because you made it up. Most everyone knows, can measure, or can call and ask what the...
The measurement you want is called Front-Center. Do the math yourself.
Bikeshop Warehouse is also somehow related to the BikesDirect empire.
I have a GT I purchased from Bikeisland. Based on the massive amount of various GT bikes I've built up in the shop I can...
Vuelta A Miami?
I think there is a feed zone. Find a friend for water hand-ups. You can easily carry enough food in your pockets.
Here's a race report from 2009....
What's with the age group references I've been seeing lately? Is this a triathlon or bike race?
Mountain bike or Cyclocross bike for fall/winter?
There's more CX races but I already have 3 drop bar bikes and it seems like an MTB would be something different. Especially on the...
Ben's Cycle has the Andel crankset and BB for $124.99 with a 15% off coupon and free shipping. That's what I went with.
ETA: It appears they actually have a 20% sale for the 4th.
It's a heat map from here:
You log in with your Strava and it compiles all your rides, you can zoom in/out too. It's really awesome.
Here's the race shape...
The time frames I am able to ride are the limiting factor but I'm pretty happy with the variety I can pack in on the weekend.
You'll be alright. I think the biggest field I've been in so far was 18 people and that was when they did a W3/4+Junior+M4/5 race for some reason. Usually the 4/5 is like 10-12 guys.
Oh, and there...
I've done 4 out of the first 5 races in the Cat 4/5 category. Of the three courses, two are like long, hilly crits with sweeping corners - very smooth. The third (The Sprint Loop) is like a short,...
For someone who isn't racing and is trying to lose weight that is absolutely insane advice*.
OP, check out Pg. 63 of this PDF (The top article):
Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know! I'm planning on starting from the high school if parking is okay. I'm going to call the school just to make sure tomorrow.
I figured 3 bottles on the...
I'm think of doing the Six Gap 104-mile route this weekend and was wondering if anyone has done it unsupported. Mainly I'm curious about water availability in-route. Looking over the course map in...
About a month and a half to three months. Oh wait, time doesn't mean anything when talking component life.
Generally I get anywhere from 1500-2500 miles from a tire before the cords start showing....
If you aren't racing and are starting with new components there isn't really any reason not to go with a 36h set-up. 32/28 and so forth are pretty much un-rideable with a broken spoke and require...
