    On average, the road with 20 cars is going to be way safer than the 200. There are exceptions as you mentioned, but in my case I can assure you I am way safer on the roads I frequent that if I were...

    Let's see. Drive in an area where I get passed by 20 cars per hour....or where I get passed by 200 cars per hour. You do the math on what is going to be more dangerous.

    That is definitely my only other option.

    It really is. I only ride in low traffic areas, and I can always here cars coming up on me to where I can make sure they see me. Texting has really gotten rampant out there.
  5. Enraging Stories like this make me reconsider cycling

    I know of a guy in town that was hit the other day by a car by a driver that was texting. It would have been major had he not been able to hear the car coming in on him and react. He still got...

    banerjek, I am with you. Just like today at the TDF. With no break, you finally just break. I will say that much of it is what you are used to. I have a few friends from CA that are used to less...

    This is what I noticed as well. The thing was just really responsive, and it seemed to accelerate really well. I took mine out on a 60 mile ride the other day, and it felt as nice as my...

    I just bought a Scott CR1, and I love it. I didn't think it was harsh at all, and I am coming off of a steel Lemond frame. That being said it had old and lower end wheels. My Lemond was a 2003,...

    He is a really nice guy. Funny how some don't believe it even though people like you and myself can vouch for him. I mean he probably could have done way more if he would have wanted to. He had way...

    This is exactly what I have been saying. This is what makes me wish I could see what Toone and others would do out West or anywhere that the rollers don't come into play. Like I said, either way he...

    My whole thing is still momentum. There are many climbs I climb and that Toone climbs on his way to 31000 feet that are 0.4 miles at 7% grade. Then, you fly down it and with a little effort your...

    I am interested to what would be more difficult. I know he did this by doing many 6-12% grades with a few gradients that average close to 20%. I know we have a ton of heat, humidity, and many...

    Yes, you can check out the route on Strava. I live in the middle of where he is riding, so I can tell you it is not hard to find the hills. Like was said above, there is no huge elevation change. ...

    It is Brian toone. It is legit. I am sure you can follow on strava to see the ride. I think the
    Fact that we have so many hills so close to each other makes it easier, as you can use your momentum...

    31,000 feet climbing in 1 Day

    I just saw where a guy in Birmingham climbed 31,000 feet today. This guy lives around me, and he lives on his bike. I am still shocked at how much climbing he did. I think it took him 150 miles to...

    They are out there. She was actually shocked I didn't spend closer to 5,000. I just couldn't justify it. She is lucky in that she has been getting a monthly bonus for the last year, and she has...
  17. Finally Bought New Bike/Scott CR1 Elite

    After nearly a decade of riding my first road bike, a 2003 Lemond Alpe D Huez, I finally pulled the trigger on a new Scott CR1 Elite. I would have stuck it out with the Lemond, but after eight years...

    Well, I went ahead and purchased today after getting a professional fitting. I will start a full thread reviewing the bike and how it compares to my ten year old Lemond. I went with a Scott CR1...

    Great advice. I agree with the finding the good shop part. I know these guys are good from all of what my friends say. It just limits me to Pinarello, Scott, Waterford, and Jamis. I like the...

    Great post. I am going to look into the Defy, Roubaix, and Synapse as well. So many choices makes it tough.

    This makes me wonder if I really want to go the relaxed route as well. I mean I am not old and just going to put around, but I am also not going to be doing crits. I just want it to be a...

    The shop also said they could do a custom Waterford. I have no clue what the cost would be there. Independent Fabrication is another custom brand I like, but I don't know enough about how I would...

    Well, the main thing is it just seems that every few weeks I am having to take it in to fix something. It has been a great bike for 8 years without any issues, but it seems things are all getting...
  24. Clueless:3K-4K To Spend/PinarelloRoku,CR1, or OTHER

    I have ridden nearly 10 years on my 2003 Lemond Alpe D Huez. My wife wants to get me a new bike, and I agree that it is time. I want to keep budget between $3000-$4000. I am 6'1" 185lbs. Typical...
