    Stay Ultegra. Replace wear items, as they wear, with DA. Buy a quiver of aero wheels if you want to spend money. If you don't have a second identical bike then get a second identical bike as a backup...

    I think your experience is a personality thing, not a Category thing. I know you said that but I wanted to say it again. You'll find some incredibly generous and giving Cat 3s and 2s (and 4s and 5s)....

    People are people. For me although I take racing seriously when I race, I'm pretty relaxed about it when I'm not, meaning like in training and such. Yes, it's a passion of mine, but no, I don't feel...

    Stem is a custom, 14.5 cm, -32 deg. The prior stem (3 cm too high) was -20, 14 cm, Deda Pista stem. I fit my frames with the assumption I'd be using the crit bend bars I've had forever and a -17 deg...

    I was high on the wait list for the Harlem Crit one year when the Cat 3-4 race had 250 spots. Then I thought about 250 racers on that flat, four corner, totally not-selective course. I left before...

    You almost never post side shots. You don't look tall in the head on shots but the side shot, wow.

    Two layers is key, hence the whole "base layer in the summer" discussion a while back. I've had plenty of crashes where the outer layer slid without ripping through but my skin got shredded.

    I took the picture. One of the 15.

    gstein is winning. The break that was away for many, many, many laps got caught by his team just before the line. The guy in red/black to the way left, by the...

    If you have press fit bearings (BB30 for me) then it might be the bearings moving in the frame. I know our sponsor bike shop sells Trek and they had problems with their press fit bearings (BB86?) for...

    I wouldn't wear a helmet if my rides went as planned. However unplanned things happen. I've scraped my finger tips a few times, each time after maybe 5+ years of thinking "I'll never scrape my finger...

    You're welcome, just trying to spread out what I've learned over the years. For what it's worth I started riding pretty seriously in 1982, first contemplated a custom frame in the 1992-1995 range,...

    I should add that earlier this year I started to dress at 12:58 for a 1:00 start. Bike was ready, number pinned. On the other hand it was so cold I wore bib tights (takes forever to get on), booties,...
