    I use my Strava Leaderboard rankings as a general way of seeing where I stand with respect to the community as a whole. My speeds (average and moving) are from looking at overall stats for a few...

    Nice - glad to know I'm in the wheelhouse. Strava has my average "moving speed" usually around 15-16 mph, and overall average speed on my urban commutes (14 miles each way) to be around 13-15 mph. ...

    It was raining a fair bit this morning, but nice and cool at 4C/39F. Nice thing about the rain is that there are less pedestrians and commuters on the roads, so it was pretty serene. I actually...

    Numb right hand

    Hi All,
    My right hand often goes numb ~40 minutes into my ~60 minute commute each day. I'm fairly certain that my seat height, setback, and stem length are reasonable as I've had a pro bike fitting...

    I'm preparing myself for the wrath of some users on this forum as I write this post.

    I use the L&M Urban 700 light on my bars and the L&M Vis 360 on my helmet. I had my first true commute in...

    My wife started a workout on the stationary trainer this morning, then left for ~3 mins to get her bike shorts on, came back and did her workout. I'd like to crop out the first ~3 minutes & change...

    LOVE the ceiling lifts! I just have simple hooks in the bottom of the roof trusses to hang my tires from. If my garage was taller, I'd go for a lift type system though for sure, if for nothing else...

    Agreed with everything above.

    I'm riding a Specialized Secteur; it's the Roubaix geometry, but with an aluminum frame (still carbon forks). It's not as aggressive as most road bikes; longer head...

    At 5'11" and 232 lbs (and dropping fast), I'm certainly not the picture of the typical cyclist's frame. That said though, I've found that riding about the same distances as you over the summer, I've...

    Merino is supposed to be most effective when worn against the skin. It's really not itchy; finer fibres and softer scales than other wools. It's also moisture wicking, and being wool it keeps you...

    I'd lean that way too for the same reasons. Free servicing for lifetime is worth a LOT... tune-ups are often worth $50-70, and you should do them at least annually. If you have free service, I'd do...
