    Don't overlap wheels with the person in front of you. That will fix 90% the problem noted above about sudden swerving.

    Perfect execution! I give it a 10! The guy was behind the rider and no threat of falling into him. Everybody else out there had waited hours or days to see the riders come through. The last thing...

    There is good research out there to support the use of the sleeves for recovery. I haven't seen any evidence that the compression helps while actually riding.

    The bikes at our gym have SPD on one side and Look delta on the other. They also have a platform insert with a toeclip on it that clicks into the look side for people who don't have cycling shoes. ...

    ^^ This +1. I am 44 and my max is around 172. A good hard climbing effort for me is around 160-162. And my resting HR is around 55. There is no reason to automatically assume that somebody 20...

    Correct. I was thinking anaerobic and aerobic thresholds and swapped out which one was synonymous with LT.

    Unless you are seeking to do a specific HR based training plan, then knowing your max and knowing your "zones" really won't be worth much to you. What is worth knowing is the HR you can maintain for...

    My experience is that everybody says there is little difference between the 23 and 25 width tires. However, I swapped out 23s for 25s on my bike a couple different times two years ago, and there is...

    Bicycle world and fitness at dairy Ashford and memorial has some group rides, but I have never ridden with them and have no idea how they are.

    Do you have any thought on how much of the difference between the two is in the frame and how much is the different wheels and tires? I just looked and the tires on the 4.0 that I rented were 340g...

    Yeah, I was hoping to get a good deal in August/September on a 2014 5.2, but it is sounding more and more like the LBSs around here may not have any left well before then.

    Yeah, totally understand on the 5.9 availability. But there shouldn't really be a difference in ride quality between the 5.2 and 5.9. That is why I said to get a ride on a "5 series", whether it is...

    Yeah I know...but let me at least dream for a bit before you crush my hopes. Maybe wait until they are trailing the lone leader but still running, then trip them?
