    I tried low-carb for a month or two in college (where you try things) and had a pretty positive experience. Dropped a lot of weight (didn't need to, but it more or less fell off) and I really...

    Yep. My not-really-that-clever line is that I prefer bike stuff from the "Cosby Show" era. ;)

    "Quicker" to me implies an indexed system and a HG-ish cassette/FW that lets you "click" and get back to the handlebars right away.

    If the manufacturer of your new crankset is nice enough, they'll provide a recommended BB length, and attachment type. From there, you'd just get the right BB for your frame. :)

    Ooh, good point! With a "tripleizer" chainring, you can attach a granny ring to the now-middle 42T inner chainring. I think pastorbobnlnh has started making those, after other outfits stopped. ...

    41T is the smallest possible chainring for 144 BCD, and that's pretty rare. You'll probably need to switch to a different crankset or freewheel/cassette to get lower gears...

    Most of the time I have a cup of coffee (with half & half) and an apple at most. With truly 0 calories in my system, I'll get nauseous into a strenuous ride, but a couple of calories do the trick.

    Thank God I finally learned that oil doesn't actually come from fossilized plants/animals. This makes all the difference when pumping gas into my car or riding my bike. :rolleyes:
