Nice, nothing wrong with his braking to my eye, although he used all of the road on a couple of curves which is a bit unnerving.
There was a lot more traffic the day I rode that bit, but you pretty...
Excellent and succinct explanation, thank you.
So, if you removed the quarter pounder from under the seat it would be 16.9 lb?
I suppose you could ride on A520s with regular shoes but you wouldn't want to do it very often. If that's your plan, go with the A530.

That's not correct. I'm using the blue cleats with ultegra SPD-SL pedals and they work just fine.
Of these three shimano SPD road cleats, I use the A520 and A530. The A600 looks like an...
It sounds to me as if you would be happy with a touring or mtb shoe with SPD road pedals, since you aren't riding very long distances and you are concerned about walking in them. Lots of road...
Highlight: rode up Mt. Ventoux (twice!)
Lowlight: had my commuter stolen just after replacing the entire drive train.
Midlight: insurance replaced the commuter with perfectly acceptable new...
My Buenos Aires. Love this bike.
The magnets placed near a moving conductor induce an eddy current resulting in a braking effect. Works with aluminum, not plastic.
+1 on the Sugoi hydrolite. Fairly waterproof, ventilated and easily packed, but no pockets. Lots of people wearing them around here these days.308122
I did it last year and probably will do it again. It's a good ride and very well supported.
I calculate about 1600m of climbing, but the route goes the easy way (south to north) so there aren't...
There's a guy in Calgary.
I think there is someone working out of Edmonton as well.
I've got a zephyr that I connect with mytracks via bt. I was getting some weird readings (bp of 230) on occasion, but after the latest update it seems to be working fine.
Get some sks chromoplastics
This is great news.
I did a gran fondo this year that had a king of the mountains prize, complete with polka dot jerseys. I was feeling kinda bad that the guy in the over 50 group who beat me...
You hit on one of the worst aspects of cycling in what is otherwise a pretty great place to bike. Bikecalgary has an ad hoc infrasructure advisory commitee that is working on the signage and routing...
Most of the 3 digit highways (567,574,772...) are fine although I wouldn't want to ride them during rush hour, there are a lot of country commuters and some of them drive like idiots.
I've been riding a pair since last year, I like 'em. They are a bit heavier than the GP4000S that they replaced but the ride is almost exactly the same.
Compared to the gatorskins on my commuter,...
I think it's cool that you are including Bowron lakes in the trip, beautiful place!
I assume you have a reservation.
Try wheels manufacturing, your lbs can order what you need.
Right, cause steel == crappy:rolleyes:
I dunno, a guy I ride with a lot just got some of those wheels this year and, for the first time ever, is now routinely dropping me. Could be placebo, but I blame the wheels.
