    They all had the same road. the same weather, and the same peloton. One rider positioned himself well in the peloton, avoided road hazards, and is still in it. Two others didn't survive. How is...

    Two benefits for north to south - 1) Winds ; 2) You're on the ocean side of the road, which is nicer for sightseeing. Most the turnouts on PCH are on the ocean side of the road. Big Sur going...

    I just got all my bikes to 10 speed. I have a mix of 3x10 and 2x10. All of them have mountain derailleurs in the back so that I can toss on a fat cassette if needed. The ability to mix/match...

    There's a huge hipster/bike movement in some cities. Just go to a Midnight Ridazz or Wolfpack Hustle event here in Los Angeles. Most of those 20-somethings aren't in spandex on carbon bikes. ...

    My titanium bike is fastest up the hill (lightness + agility)

    What is up with that crank? 4 bolts? On a 5 bolt pattern, perhaps? Yike.

    Solvang on Saturday.

    Was planning to do the crash ride as well, but now that it is cancelled, sleeping in sounds better than civil disobedience.

    If you want to ride snow, you might want to look into a fat bike (no pun intended). They have fat tires which are supposed to be great in the snow and super fun on pavement. The bikes themselves...

    I went LA to San Diego a few times. Longest one of these was 134 miles, not something I'd want to repeat the next day. Always took the train back.

    I think this whole discussion is just another negative outcome stemming from Armstrong and his impact on the sport.

    If one rider runs away with it, then it must be doping because the last time it...

    Yes, visuals matter. I like the simple, classic look, not too many logos. Titanium or steel.

    Not a fan of carbon, mostly because of the visual aesthetics.
