    That's very curious. I have RoadId and now I don't feel as comfortable with it. I think a good question for the RoadId people is how much are they investing in making emergency rooms aware of this...

    I can relate to this. When the Shimano crankset with this type of crank arms first came out, I upgraded to it. To ensure it was installed properly, I let the bike shop install it. After one short...

    Any white riding shorts are a "no-no". A little sweat and everyone will be pointing and smirking as they ride by. Translucent shorts are not your friend . . .

    I suggest going to a bike shop that sells the helmet and see how it fits. Also, forget about how it looks. I just bought one because it is so comfortable. This is the only bike helmet I've found that...

    I'm never without my 1200 Lumen flashing headlight. On narrow back roads, drivers like to use both lanes, especially on curves.

    I normally skip at least the first one or possibly two stops, perhaps even three. It just depends on how hot it is and how much water I have. From then on, I stop when I need water or need a "nature...

    This is a joke -- right? LeMond rode a Look carbon fiber frame in the TdF in the mid 80's. I've personally got 33,000. miles on my 2006 Look 585 frame.

    Did a two month training program for the Hotter 'n Hell Hundred last year. The coach has over 40 years experience in long distance, endurance riding. His rule is this: "What you eat the night before...

    I agree. The reach seems very short. A longer stem is needed -- 60mm is extremely short. 100mm might be better.

    In my experience, the glue is ok until the tube is opened, after that it dries out or evaporates in a few months. That's why I prefer the glueless patches as a backup to two spare tubes. They aren't...

    You must remember, people are looking for vehicle sized objects. Motorcyclists have the same problem. You are still very small compared to a car or SUV. You can get their attention by waving. I...

    Not all chamois are the same. A lot of padding in the wrong places can cause problems. Look at shorts with thinner padding -- they are often more comfortable. We did just fine when shorts had real...

    If you ride on the road, you must practice "Defensive Riding". You must make yourself as visible as possible and ride as if no one can see you.

    Yes, all materials fail. I choose to stay with aluminum bars. In the unlikely event they should fail, they're much cheaper to replace. I have no problem with carbon. My Look 585 is, of course,...
