    Understood. It IS more expensive than keeping a purchased car for 5, 6 or more years. But if you want a new car every four years or more frequently, there is no cheaper way to do it.

    I highly recommend the KMC SLX chain appropriate for your 11 speed drivetrain. Also the difference between the Tektro brakes and Ultegra is remarkable. If Ultegra makes a 57 mm set and you can...

    It is the pawls in your rear freehub that are engaging. Depending upon how many pawls you have, you will have some portion of a circle that you pedal through before they engage. Another possibility...

    Just a question. How do you put on shoes to mold them that are so hot? 170F will definitely scald you. Do they provide insulated socks? :)

    Not trying to be cantankerous, but I have to say the moldable shoe strikes me as way over the top. I go try on and buy a pair of shoes. If it feels good off the bike, it feels good on the bike. ...

    I agree with this. I can feel the weight difference of that magnitude quite clearly.

    To me this is way exaggerated. It is possible for every tubular wheel to be better than every COMPARABLE...

    This is why I only lease cars for a period less than then warranty period. Never worry about what to do about a problem and they are rare anyway. It is all covered so it makes no difference to me.

    Just get a ball of 3/16" cotton twine. Cut several long strips off it and run it between the cogs like you are shining shoes. Or use multiple pieces of finer string together. The twine drags the...

    It would probably be better if you molded them completely before even trying to install the cleats and ride with them. When you finally did install the cleats, you could make it permanent.

    Calling someone "boy" and referring to someone as a boy are two very different things. I don't see any insult in referring to young men as boys and young women as girls. In fact I think it...

    You say you drank water, not electrolyte supplemented water. Did you possibly dilute your electrolytes too much?

    Or how about some epoxy resin between the sole and the cleat. And it couldn't hurt to try a slightly lower release tension. You may have no trouble with it.

    Actually I wouldn't think getting behind a truck would be such a good idea. Just like in a paceline the wind resistance would be reduced and more load would be placed on the brakes. Wing it on your...

    Tony who?

    By the way is that position on the bike truly more aero than a bending at the pelvis from a rearward position on the saddle and getting the back flat? It looks to me like the head is...

    What does quality of the build mean? We are only talking here about decent wheels. A bad build will maybe result in wheels that are often out of true or that break spokes after a year or two, but...

    Will you do a nipple transplant? Or dig it out from where it is hidden? Or maybe take the opposite one off to get a match? The possibilities are endless.

    I take issue with that statement. Performance has brick and mortar stores in many cities. Yes they are a chain and do a big internet business, but their stores in Houston are LBSs to me.

    When I am driving in the mountains I only use the transmission to descend, no brakes except very rarely. Is your rig too heavy for that?
