  4. Sticky: How Long to Glide?

    I have always swam by beginning one stroke as soon as I have completed the previous stroke, as I learned when I was 12 years old. Although I'm fairly tall - 6' 1" - I use 26-27 strokes to do 25...

    I've ridden with these bars for the last 18 months. They seem plenty stiff and are very comfortable. I've been told not to use a clamp-on aero bar though.

    12-25 to 11-28?

    I'm using a Dura Ace 7800 short cage derailleur. Can I switch from a 12-25 Shimano cassette to a SRAM 11-28? Shimano talks about 11 tooth and 27 tooth with that derailleur but not the two together....

    We have 2 VDO gauges, and both exhibit the same problem you describe on an intermittent basis in any kind of weather. I might suggest replacing batteries - that's all I can really think of.

    We actually run with her twice a week, and ride our mountain bikes three times a week. We added the mountain biking because the run was too easy for the dog. Her 20+ MPH sprints are amazing to watch....

  16. Best Brake Pads For Carbon Fiber Wheels

    I'm using Bontrager cork pads in a Dura Ace caliper on Bontrager carbon fiber wheels. The braking is horrible, with a kind of continual rapid "grab and release" feel that I've seen others write...

    There certainly is a diminishing return as you spend more money. I think a good analogy would be with stereo equipment, where you get 98% of the performance for $2000, and the last 2% costs many...
