    The average recreation runner will expend energy much faster running than they would cycling. Cycling your body has a chance to recover a little bit over the time of the ride. Running a marathon...

    Unfortunately there is a thing called bonking, and although you might make it my guess is that you would bonk somewhere between 35 miles and 100 miles. You cannot fully appreciate what it means to...

    Many years ago I used to buy Specialized road tires- their 700x25 tires frequently measured only about 20mm wide when mounted. Since then I've ridden a lot of Michelin tires and they seemed to be...

    The good watch forums have sales areas. Look for a seller with good feedback. It is not unreasonable to buy from ebay, but again look at the seller and feedback. Some watch models are highly faked...

    Most likely a G10 quartz. There aren't any mechanical chrono movements with that dial arrangement. ETA does make mechanical chrono movements but watches using them are typically $1000 or more.

    It is hot here too- right at 100F these days. I have found that while biking the heat doesn't bother me, but sufficient water is essential. If I go for an hour or less I don't bother to take water,...

    We moved about 8 months ago and our new house has all mostly fluorescent- straight bulbs in the garage, laundry, office and closets, and CFL's in most other fixtures. The bedrooms have dimmable...

    The OP said the smallest object he needs to photo is 2"x3". This would be 1:2 on a film camera, or 1:3 on a Nikon DX and very close to that on a Canon DSLR with small sensor. Many standard 50mm...

    If the control software works with newer Canon DSLR's then this might be the way to go. I had a co-worker that was interested in telescopes. He had computer control of his telescope and computer...

    D90 and D300 came out at almost the same time. The D300 is the last of Nikon's pro quality small sensor cameras. From D200 to D300, and similarly from D80 to D90, Nikon changed sensor technology...

    I broke the top off of one of my lower front teeth about 4 years ago when my head went through the back windshield of a Toyota Camry. The ER doctors thought I needed to have it taken care of quickly...

    It sounds like the cheapest camera that you can software control is all that you need. Canon also has remote control software but I don't know which models it will work with.

    I have a black plunger on a stick, sort of an accordion thing. I think it works better than the rubber cups. The problem is that the average toilet has this tiny little tube that drains the bowl...

    Very attractive price. I like the size of my ipad2 so I don't think I would like the smaller screen, but I recognize that the smaller size would be better for some people. I can carry the larger...
