    I think it helps that there wasn't a block in the 80s of one rider completely dominating the decade like you had in the 60s (Anquetil) 70s (Merckx) 90s (Indurain) or 00s (no winner here). Yes, 3 of...

    All of this. I have a bought bike (CAAD 10 105), and a built bike (Bianchi Brava with Campy 8spd). I ride the bought bike (a lot) more, and it probably cost me less all up when I go through the...

    I can't see it ever happening; Trek, BMC, Bianchi, Campy and Shimano et al all want to sell the latest, greatest and lightest stuff, not some old fashioned lumpy grey iron.

    I'd love it if they got...

    I've always wondered, did the bullhorn bar funny bikes actually have any aero advantage over a regular road bike? Other than the disk wheels, the same 90deg elbows body position is surely attainable...

    The number 1 maintenance to do (which I don't do enough of) is to keep your chain and drivetrain clean and lubed.

    Next is to make sure your bearings (hubs, bb, headset) are cleaned and greased...

    Not necessarily so. My current shoes felt fantastic off the bike walking around on carpet. When clipped into a pair of Keos, though, I found that I was suffering a lot of pressure on the outside of...

    Any idea where 1903 finished? Wiki's entry on that year's Tour reads;
    " The last stage was the longest, at 471 km (293 mi), and ran from Nantes to the Velodrome in Paris, where 20,000 spectators saw...

    More eyeballs on an English Premier League or NFL game than on pretty much any cycling race, and tv money is what pays the piper.

    Also, don't assume that pro cyclists are training any harder than...

    I don't think having a climb before the Champs would make much difference. There's still 9 (or however many they choose in any given year) laps of the Champs after that, for over 50km where the...

    Nicholas Roche had one, and I got the impression he was the only Saxo rider to get one for some reason. Contador wasn't riding one when he crashed. Roche's obviously had SRAM red rather than DA.
