    Just to throw out a tidbit relative to this discussion. I had a Waterford built last fall and spent some time up at their factory. I won't get into the details but they are aware of historical...

    First one in the books! Very windy 200K this past weekend in WI (at least it seemed hellaciously windy to me! Maybe the seasoned vets just laughed.). Didn't deter me, though -- going for the 300...

    215 lb with 28mm tires
    - I had a set of wheels built with White hubs and DT Swiss rims, 32h laced 3-cross. Absolutely love them so far. The White hubs have been wonderful, bang-for-the buck seems...

    Funny thing happened. I spent a few days with my business partners, all of whom suffer from varying degrees of adult-onset cycling. Actually, I consider myself the weakest cyclist in the company by...

    I'm a 49 year old, 215 lb perma-clyde (built like a linebacker) with bad lung issues. Wonderful combination. I tell people "imagine if Thor Hushovd was 25% bigger, and he sucked. That's me." I'm...

    Two things have completely change my perspective of riding in inclement weather:

    I know I've said this before on these pages, but I tend to feel sorry for people like that. I always try to keep in mind that I'll wake up the next day and not have to deal with them. They'll wake...

    Yes to fenders. Put SKS Longboards on about 6 weeks ago and haven't looked back. The one thing people overlook is that not only do they keep schtuff off of you and/or your drive train, they keep it...

    Yeah, I knew I could look it up, just hadn't gotten around to it yet. In the first group, the last three are out because I'm either on vacation or already doing (planning? hoping?) a 400. I hadn't...

    Main goal: figure out how the heck to do this rando thing! Yep, newbie. First one ever coming up later this spring. Hope to complete a 200, 300, 400. The 600 isn't going to work because of family...

    Another vote for a Selle Anatomica, BUT . . . as several people have said it's a really personal thing. But I'd recommend at least trying the SA saddles. They've got a 30 day return policy.

    No, really. Since I've just recently come down with adult-onset-randonneuring I enjoy reading longer ride reports. The short question and answer stuff is great, but I find that long reports give me...

    I'm outside of Chicago. Several inches of snow yesterday, 20's this weekend and, yes, I have a 30 miler planned for Saturday. Just remember: there's no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothes.

    Fitness between brevets

    I plan to try my hand (legs?) at randonneuring this year. I feel I've got a pretty good training plan in place leading up to the first 200K, but I'm really at a loss at how to structure things in...

    I read somewhere that even Ferrari wondered that same thing, so you're not out in left field. (of course, thinking along the same lines as a slimy doctor probably doesn't make you feel any better!)
