    That course was so much nicer last year after they repaved all the roads...Awesome course.

    Might head there in a couple weeks to shoot the race.

    If you're so worried about what riding is going to do to your hair, pick yourself up one of these.

    You're being overly cautious here, and that might be a big understatement. Trust me, carbon forks do not just shear on impact in a crash. It's an extremely strong material. I've got some racing...

    I've got a Defy 1, so I can address a few of your concerns.

    First, the bars. One of the big advantages of drop bars over riser bars is the variety of hand positions you can use. If you do indeed...

    Touched 45 MPH descending into Cayucos, on a bike that wasn't mine, on roads that I'd never ridden before. Decided to ease up in the interest of self-preservation.

    Ann Arbor spring training series? How's the course this year? So many potholes on their old course.

    Yes. I've got a pair of the Elite Barrier shoe covers, and my feet have actually been uncomfortably warm at times in 35-40 degree weather.

    Thanks, that sounds perfect! We'll be staying in Morro Bay for a few days, so fairly easy to just hop on hwy 1. Fairly safe for cyclists on that road?
  12. Favorite routes around Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo?

    I'm taking a trip out to California next week and I'm looking to do some serious riding. Already acquired a Felt AR3 for the week, and now I just need to know where to go. It'll be a couple of days...

    Depends on what I'm planning to do for the day. If It's a short, easy ride, then 45 minutes or 2 episodes of Scrubs on Netflix, whatever is longer. Saturday mornings in the winter, I take my bike and...

    I was on a training ride earlier this summer, and I'm pretty sure Frankie Andreu flew past me. Does that count?

    In the eyes of most drivers in SE Michigan, riding a bicycle in the road means you're less than human. It's not uncommon for somebody driving in the opposite direction, 2+ lanes away, to lay on their...

    There's a perfect route right near my apartment that's just about 20K. If I want to just get in a quick ride, or a nice recovery roll, that's what I'll do: http://www.strava.com/activities/71659977

    I'll see you at a few of those races for sure. I went to watch the Grand Rapids race a few years ago, when it was hosting the US Pro Criterium Championships. Very cool course, a few first turns in...

    Excellent write-up. Not surprised that the last corner took out a few guys. As I was rolling back to the start line in the wheel truck, the official mentioned that it was something like a 150-degree...
