    I just received a framed jersey as a gift. It is attached to the backing with those small plastic things that they use to attach price tags to clothing, so you can barely see them. There is also some...

    Is there a reason you're looking specifically at the Cannondale? Size 49 Allez has a 100mm head tube, so you could go down 2 cm.

    Spin classes are what you make of them, so they can be easy or hard. The intensity is completely up to you. I'd suggest doing the class because at least it gives you some structure that you don't...

    I think the boxers dude might have won it. No joke!

    I don't think the chainrings are truly 9/10 speed specific, despite what Shimano says. I think you'd be fine with 9-speed rings.

    Incidentally, referring to the post about a 53/34 crankset, I think...

    I remember reading that DiLuca used a 34-27 in training on the Zoncolan, I assume that's what he used in the Giro. The pros use whatever they need to to get them over the hill.

    This makes no sense. Yes, on average one would not get two or even one flat on a ride, but that doesn't help you on the day you get more than two. Average number of flats per ride is meaningless.

    I've only raced the course once. The hill is by no means a killer, I'd say 1/4 mile or shorter, and not overly steep either. What I thought made it tough was that it came almost immediately following...

    Be confident but not so cocky. That's a tough little crit course, narrow with one semi-nasty hill. It's fun though.
