    Yes, I've given away 3 bikes, each being a bike my son had outgrown. While one was a clunker KMart mountain bike, the other two were nice bikes, purchased new, used for a few years, then donated.
  3. Average TdF road bike MSRP is roughly $15K.

    Ah, the angry knitting fan. Man, that's a group you do not want to pi** off. She looks like she could, uh, unravel, at any time.

    Spartacus is out, focusing on September's WCs. While not a GC threat, he sure can shake things up.

    I was rooting for Gallopin, so I could see his yellow bike again. Beautiful!

    I always carry 2 tubes and a couple of strips of Tyvek (the stuff Fed Ex envelopes are made of) for tire splits.

    i love the Trek roster - the Anti-Sky. GC contenders? Probably not, but Cancellara, Voigt, Schlek will make it entertaining.

    DNK, as to the Zone 1 question. As to discomfort at lower zones, I've had similar experiences. At higher exertion levels, the legs are supporting the torso, so less weight on hands, less core work....

    I think the key distinction is supplying frames vs. being a "team name sponsor." Giant is now 1/2 of the Giant-Shimano team name. Spesh, for example, while supplying frames to 3 teams, is not a team...

    There's lots more NorCal than the Bay Area, of course. I've lived many places (including Austin), and find that, despite the cost of living, the climate and diversity of outdoor opportunities here is...

    Again, thanks for the replies; I'm going to look into frame bags and oversized under-saddle bags.

    The 26# was a bit of overkill for an overnighter, but was also an experiment to see if the Roubaix...

    Thanks for the replies; good points about the weight distribution. I forget the brand, but the rack attaches at the rear wheel skewers and the brake bolt - no attachment to the seat post.

    Last weekend, I mounted a rear rack and panniers to my Roubaix for a 140-mile R/T overnight ride. Total additional weight was 26 pounds. No handlebar bag, frame bag, or backpack - everything "extra"...

    That's impressive, DX! I'll have to root around on RWGPS to see what local rides would be good candidates.

    I've ridden only two 10K+ routes, to date. One was a 35.5-mile steady grind (Haleakala),...

    On a weekday, I'd definitely choose Tam over Diablo; on weekends, probably not, due to traffic. If you ride early enough, Diablo heat shouldn't be unbearable.

    Does that equate to, say 162 W (1/2 of 324) for 2 hours? If so, one could enjoy a pretty brisk 2-hour commute at only ~110-130W of pedaling, average, recharge at the office all day, then return home...
