    I can't improve on the advice, so I'll just wish you luck. I did my first century at 58, so you are still a young-un. Go get it.

    I am a big fan of LG bibs. I own both the corsa and mondo evo models. They are both compression fit, so I had to go up a size from my other LG shorts. The chamois is very comfortable to me; much...

    That is a cottered crank. I don't think they have dust caps (at least that is how I remember them). Check the inter-webs, I'm sure youtube will have instructions on how to remove them. Good luck.

    Well, I found out that Gatorskins are "shorter" than Paselas. There is definitely more room now. The Pasela's will likely see off-season time on the Domane, saving the GP 25cm for spring.
