    I'm aware. I'm not assuming I can compete on a par with a guy who spent the last 30 years racing on and off just because we're within a few years of each other's age.

    It just depends. If you're buying a hybrid as a light duty mountain bike, you want a suspension fork. If you're buying it as a comfortable, heavy duty road bike, you don't need suspension.

    FWIW,...

    I'm just trying to get a handle on how to set realistic goals. Prior to racing, I could look at my speed and endurance, see improvement, and I knew I was doing well. My only yardstick was my own...

    Appropriate yardstick

    Capsule history: Very healthy and active in my teens and 20s - rock climber, mountain biker, worked as a guide for a few years. Then I spent 25 years as a beer swilling couch potato, and at the ripe...

    Don't believe these people. If a woman calls you "dude", she is hot, and I do mean HOT for you. She wants you badly, and she's laying it out there for you. This should be obvious.

    Makes sense. Was thinking I'd ride today, but the head rushes when I rode to the end of the driveway told me it wasn't time yet. Have a crit I'd sure like to ride Wednesday. Maybe if I can manage an...

    Too warm for tights=shorts. Too cold for shorts=tights. In between=shorts and legwarmers. Next question?

    There's no way you're cutting a 40 minute ride down to 18 minutes with aero improvements. Cutting a 40 minute ride down to 38 minutes? Sure. Maybe even 35 if you're going full skinsuit, disc wheels,...

    I guessed as much. We have those guys in my business, too. They come up with ideas that seem like they COULD work, but they miss some essential element and are absolutely resistant to teh notion that...

    Speaking as a cat 5 racer, I'm not too impressed when someone has a cat 5 racer endorsing their product. Cat 1/pro riders, coaches, established teams, etc are more likely to catch my attention and...

    If you already have a road boke you like, why not just pick up a climbng cassette for it?

    If I believed they worked, sure. But it looks to me like for whatever good they might do in a direct headwind, they'd add drag in cross winds, and the weight and mounting hardware are adding drag as...

    Does a sick day count as a rest day?

    Do two days in bed with food poisoning/stomach flu count as rest days, or would you add another day off the bike if you were due for a rest day when you got sick?

    Nothing could thrill me more than having my subjective race analyiys serve as the fodder for extended faux debate, but suffice it to say that overtraining + 50 yr old legs + no real warmup = a...

    I'm showing up cold and racing if I get there before the start signal. If I get dropped in the first lap, it'll just be a sucky race.

    Unless, of course you rarely ride that much. Big workouts are relative to your normal workout. If someone rides 5-10 miles once or twice a week, a 6 hr century is a HUGE ride. If they ride 20-40...

    To be fair, I'm a 50 yr old cat 5. I rarely sprint over 38 even with a warmup.
