    I hate the new Google Maps, so bear with me...

    2nd St. near Walmart isn't the most bike-friendly area, but once you get away from there things get better.

    Here's a route that heads south...

    I haven't been on Strava that long, so this is probably the fastest one I can prove: Bike Ride Profile | 108 miles near Carson City | Times and Records | Strava

    It shows a max of 53.5. I know it's...

    51 or 52. I can't remember the exact number. All I cared about was going over 50. I did it here: Strava Segment | Brockway Summit descent to NorthStar

    I had a high-speed wobble on that section...

    I look at it like this- if you're going to spend $800, that's pretty close to $1,000. For $1,000 you can get a decent brand new bike.

    I think I see the wear indicators in the first picture. I'd say those are fine. I've certainly ridden on much worse.

    Motobecane, because that's what I ride. There's nothing sexy about it, but the price was right and it gets the job done.

    Read post #107 again.

    Originally I said that 1-mile repeats aren't the best training for a 7-mile climb. Going hard on a 7-mile climb is the best training for that.

    That doesn't mean you...

    You can feel the difference between a new tire and a squared off tire in the back. The feeling is probably even worse on the front.

    How important is full Shimano to you? Are different brakes and an FSA crank a deal killer?

    Another vote for moving the old front tire to the back and putting the new tire on front.

    No I didn't. I said both are good, but the intervals are more for raising threshold. Long climbs are also important to learn how to hold an effort for a long time.

    Since when is one climb such a super-human effort? Assuming appropriate gearing and pacing, anyone in decent shape can do it.

    Will it be fast? No. Will it hurt the next day? Yes. But the next...

    Go ask if you can go run hard for an hour. Answer should be yes.

    We're talking about around a 1-hour effort. It's not going to kill anybody. I'm not saying go ride 10,000 feet tomorrow.

    Think about a flat, 30-minute TT instead. Yes, you want to do intervals to raise your threshold. But you want to do some practice 30-minute TTs, too. Holding the right pace for that long takes...

    It's good interval training, which can help raise your threshold. However, it helps very little for pacing. I can hold a much higher effort for one mile vs. seven.

    How do you expect someone to get better at climbing if he doesn't have an easy enough gear to get up the hill without mashing?

    Well, any real difference will cost a new cassette, RD, and chain at the very least.

    Personally, I'd be looking out for a used triple group.

    Might be good practical advice, but technically it's not true. With an easy enough gear, any hill is possible. Say he wants to average 50 watts. He could do it with the right gearing.
