    Ah. You're a senior partner, and your associates do all of the heavy lifting. ;)

    Watching Le Tour, aero helmets are starting to grow on me. Not so much for the 0.005 mph advantage they'd give me,...

    Yup. Sounds like the perfect Tour for some would consist of 19 ITTs, one TTT, and the parade lap into Paris.

    I'm a controlled, medication free Type 2 diabetic, and I eat to keep it that way. Together with my cycling I held it in check now for 5 years. And this combination will work for the vast majority of...

    On the street level cam, the black on Belkin's is a dead giveaway. Not so much on the aerials from overhead.

    Yesterday Sagan was wearing a helmet that was primarily black, so he was a lot easier...

    Which Synapse 105 did you get? The 6 with the house brand saddle, or the 5 with the Prologo?

    I have the 6 with the cheap C-dale saddle, and it has been the most pleasant surprise about the bike. I...

    Cannondale's green is somewhat darker than Tinkoff's. I have more of a problem distinguishing Belkin from C-dale.

    I should mention that I'm watching in hi-def, and that makes it very easy to tell...

    I wouldn't change the cranks just for the sake of change. But in the abstract, assuming I had a choice of bikes with both standard and compact, I think I might prefer to have the 39 for a flat ride...

    The fabric in the front of your bibs can also get a bit thin, if you're a guy and you often pull down on the fabric to hang "it" out and take a leak. ;)

    Yeah, a shop that specializes in retro steel tourers would probably not be a fan of clipless pedal systems. ;)

    They are more efficient for most riders. I suspect that the people who claim that...

    It probably worked even better when he took the point and let you draft for awhile. He did offer to do that, right? ;)

    Mine's probably thinner than yours, and it's all above my knees. I usually go about 10 days.

    The Canal is a wind tunnel.and the two bridge abutments serve to funnel it even more. Both banks are lined with hills and they steer the wind right down it.

    But if you liked yesterday's wind, you...

    Reliable and kick stand don't go together. A bike as light as a CAAD 10 will blow over in a moderate breeze. I've seen 30 lb. cruisers blown over.

    You're probably correct. He's never managed to drive his fork through the quarter panel of a Buick Century.

    I wear gloves because the skin on my palms comes in handy for various day-to-day activities. :D

    And, because staying upright isn't always within one's own control. ;)

    I have never even scratched a frame in a 0 mph fall. Most of the time, the frame never touches the ground. You're more likely bend the rear mech out of line than anything else, if it falls on the...
