    One item you'd never think of served me very well when I spilled last year... rubber bands! Took the spill not that far from home, tore up the skin around my elbow (10 stitches worth), found some...

    Just came across a very interesting video, making of a custom steel frame in a custom frame shop in CA:

    I learned the hard way that gloves are more than comfort, I took a nasty spill (10 stitches to my elbow which had multiple flaps of skin dangling) because it was a way humid day and I think one hand...

    One other thing... when the main pain goes away, don't just stop. Keep some small stretching exercises in any routines you have (even if said routines are mostly getting out of bed in the morning).

    Ah, which Blaze? I went cheap and got a Beamer 3... for 20 bucks it sure seems damn good. But I've been doing some sweeping on moonlight rides and am thinking of the 2W Blaze...

    Then maybe you shouldn't have started it calling those who find the ride challenging "pathetic." It fine for you to say YOU don't find it a challenge, but unnecessary to call others "pathetic" if...

    Have noticed that in spring/early summer, most wind is from the south. Last fall, most of it was from the north. Always prefer to have strong headwinds in first half of ride, not last half! Like the...

    He, he, he. Seems non-bikers are now being a lot more courteous than when it opened... good sign! I ran it late at night w/ TimesUp RSD run, was pretty deserted.

    I love that section, BUT there are a lot of "frost heaves" on Cherry Walk so when I'm pushing it (for me) I can get jostled a lot.

    Long as we're talking Greenway, FWIW that new section (92 to 82) ...

    Not to mention the Hudson Greenway CAN at times present some fairly fierce headwinds. One can generally expect 2-6 extra mph over NOAAs call. Yesterday some sections had me down to 11 going south,...

    Oh my, so that was you... next time, let's do formal introduction!

    I too do a lot of Greenway riding, being ~200' from Riverside Park. Just listen for huffing and puffing along route.

    Last summer I kept thinking new bike, but as I reads more, those old steel framed Treks may be more than worth it to hold onto. I HAVE to ditch those twist shifters, I hate them with a passion, so...

    Curious if you thin the "more comfortable" comes from the carbon fork and iso-zone damper kind of "loosening up" and absorbing vibrations "better?"

    ShOOK, guess you hung onto the bike like I...

    What I find really REALLY pathetic is some feel the need to mock those bikers who may be well north of 60, or at risk by virtue of physical impairment who enjoy the sport and find those "meaningless"...

    Congrats on yer Trek!

    Many factors go into speed, the 7.7 is higher geared than my bike AND it's tire width seems closer to road than mine. All of which seems to point to a more "road" focus than...
