    I never fell over when I was learning to ride clipless pedals. I had a couple close calls, but never hit the ground once. I bet you can make it without falling over.

    As mentioned, it all depends on your goals. A little extra lean mass won't hurt too much unless you do a lot of climbing.

    I love climbing, so I lost 10 pounds of muscle. Doesn't sound like much,...

    About a month ago I drove down to Markleeville for a 100+ mile ride that included Carson pass and both sides of Ebbetts & Monitor. As I was getting my bike out of the car I realized that I forgot my...

    I was counting rider + gear. I'm in the low 130s and I don't carry a ton of stuff.

    Granted, I did hit a pretty big pothole when I got my pinch flat, but I've hit worse since then without any...

    I have a hard time believing I could use the Berto chart without getting a pinch flat. I've had one at 80 PSI on the front, and I'd have to gain over 50 pounds just to get up to that recommendation.

    If you go with white tape you should switch to white hoods, too.

    I think it will be white overload.

    I don't know what's worse, riding a Specialized or flying Malaysia Airlines.

    That one convinces me.

    Sounds like a plan to me. Like merlin said, you could probably do it without the planned stops unless you're really far into BFE with no gas stations around. However, the planned stops might be a...

    Let's see, their very first statement said that Contador's bike wasn't broken at all. That's obviously not true. Either their information was terribly wrong or they were lying.

    They followed that...

    You can see that it's broken in the picture. Look at the K in S-Works.

    That blurry picture doesn't prove anything. It could have been broken already.

    I've read the whole thread.

    THE COVER-UP: Specialized's initial lie that Contador's bike wasn't broken. (This added fuel to conspiracy theorists' fire.)

    THE CRIME: The broken frame. (Yes,...

    The cover-up is worse than the crime. Seems plausible that it broke on the roof, but Specialized was way too quick putting out their BS statement and following up with other lies. You can't get away...

    Endurolytes work well for me during a ride. Never had an issue with post-ride cramps (especially while sleep riding), so I'm not sure if that translates.

    I have to agree that more room probably isn't the answer (maybe a size up is). Something else must be going on. Keep experimenting with different brands and different sizes.

    The sock thing is interesting because you'll see guys wear long sleeves in a TT, but not the same materials in a leg-warmer type of setup on their legs.
