    You were carjacked? Someone stopped you while you were in your car and stole it? Wow, that's scary. I'm glad you're okay. But, here's the good thing: the cops know your car was stolen so explain to...

    I kind of left my husband in part because he was so negative about me riding. There was a lot more to it, but it was kind of the straw that broke the camel's back. When I first started, it was midway...

    I think you're right about the height vs. frame size. I'm 5-9" but have long arms and legs which makes a 54" too small for me. I'm on a 56'' Ridley. I had some problem initially with the reach but...

    Aw, thanks everybody. You guys kept me going when I was stuck indoors. I have to say it's gratifying to feel so comfortable on my bike now. I'm by no means overconfident at all, but only a year ago,...

    She's back!

    So I got back on the road today -- and I'm so happy about it. First ride since March 14 when I did 25 miles the morning before ending up in the emergency room and then the operating room (emergency...

    I have the 2013 Ridley Orion with Ultegra and I love it. It handles well and it's very good on rough surfaces. It was a lot more bike for the money than the Tarmac I was also considering. I...

    I solved my toes numbing by placing a separator between two toes on each foot just to keep them space better. My toes are "scrunched" together and my feet narrow. The separator I've been using is...

    Thanks for the help. I guess I have some miles left on my tires though I've been wearing the trainer out the past week or so. Still, there's no cord showing. I know I've jinxed myself regarding the...

    Question about tire wear

    I've put about 1200 miles on my bike since I bought it. I've not yet replaced the tires and hesitate to say this, but haven't even gotten a flat yet. I assume I will have to replace my tires sooner...

    Need? Wow. Seriously? Your word not mine. It must be nice to be able to sit in judgment of what and how people should interpret what is pure and what isn't. I imagine being perfect is exhausting. I...

    Is it wrong to want these shoes?

    I'm thinking of dropping three Benjamin's on these shoes. I've been coveting them since they came out a year or so ago. I like wearing brightly colored gear because I think it helps driver's see you...
