    Either one will serve you just fine. The Rove is more oriented toward the type of riding you describe, but mostly because it is more relaxed by design. If you prefer the sportier feel of the Snake...

    Majka is the hero of the tour for me. It was great to see the heart he put into claiming the polka dots.

    Nibili has also made this a great tour to watch. I don't care if we have known he was...

    I thought he was trying to give the motorbike a pull so the cameras could stay on him.
  4. I want to believe!! Please convince me Majka is riding clean

    He looked so strong today, and he didn't even seem tired afterward.

    I thought it was a bad sign when TJ referred to himself as a time trial specialist before the start of racing today. It seems like every year he has at least one bad day in the mountains.

    Agreed. Somebody asked me recently if I thought the riders, as a group, were still doping. My response was that I enjoy the tour a lot more if I tell myself they aren't doping. Since I honestly...

    TJ is within 1:12 of second place. He has beaten everyone above him by that much in a late time trial at least once.

    Not confused at all. He's already got the polka dot jersey. What kind of goal would that be? ;)

    Current points standings:

    1. Peter SAGAN, Cannondale, 341 points
    2. Bryan COQUARD, Europcar,...

    Nibali should just focus on stage wins from here on out. He's obviously not in a battle for the yellow jersey. Also, he just caught Greipel in the green jersey standings, so that could be a goal to...

    My sister got me this shirt a couple of years ago:

    Riding to work is a bit safer than mountain biking (I think). Both...

    That can be good for steep descent, but with the narrow hand position you lose a lot of leverage.

    Fit is definitely the most important factor with any bike. Can't you take her to Vancouver to try out the Giant?

    I love Kona Jakes, but that Giant has a lot going for it. The brakes are better...

    My wife worries quite a bit. There have been a couple of cases in the last 5 or 6 years of cyclists killed on roads that I sometimes use for my commute, so that hasn't helped. I was also involved...

    For the purposes you describe, I can't see any reason to prefer the Crockett.

    Trek calls the brakes on the CrossRip hydraulic, but they're actually a mechanical/hydraulic hybrid. They still...

    Maybe I just don't like stage races. ;)

    Here's what I'm saying though -- if Cadel couldn't beat the Schlecks up a mountain, why was there only one day when either of them seriously attacked? And...

    I just looked up that stage. I guess I have to ammend this to "...which he mostly did."

    I've put just over 500 miles on them and they're still functioning perfectly, but the weather has been relatively dry over that time so I'm not sure how much the pads have worn. A couple of times...

    I agree that it was a great tour. In fact, that was part of my point. I'm just saying Cadel's win itself wasn't exciting.

    This is what I don't get. So many of the riders seem to have this attitude that they can't outclimb someone so they don't attack and you end up with the top 10-15 guys finishing within 30 seconds or...
