    That's because many of the frequent 33 posters blow up when subjects deviate from strictly racing. They also are frugal and think only in terms of hard training and strategy.

    One thing you didn't mention is where you keep the bike. I use a good combination cable lock for commuting and my bike is on a rack near the sidewalk. Lots of people walk by for coffee in the am...

    You are exactly right and most everyone can benefit tremendously from improving their position. But an aero frame like wheels, helmet, and a few other things provide benefits and is stable - it...

    The one thing not mentioned so far is what you get paying for a custom built frame. A well built frame results after extensive fitting, either in person or through a dealer/fitter than knows the...

    The tests I've seen have the Mavics rated about the lowest in terms of aero benefits. The actual weights run about 150g more than Mavics published amounts. Regardless 1600 g for carbon wheels this...

    Those Mavic wheels are heavy by comparison but are durable. But at $1,000 that's not a bad deal.

    The notion of being blown around in cross winds is over stated. After a few rides, you quickly...

    That's what people kept telling me. I sold one a few months ago in good shape with nine speed DA, a more recent CF fork painted by Waterford, a Thomson seat post, etc., for $700. I tried eBay and...

    Rchung established his credibility here a long time ago. He doesn't need to come back and prove anything he says because those of us that read and examined what he says know he's right.

    What do you want manufacturers to do? Saddles are very individualistic and there are many, many types and sizes available. The stock saddle on one bike might be perfect for one buyer and awful for...

    A fixie stops very fast. It's easy to lock up the rear wheel. On the other hand a road bike with just a rear brake is dangerous.

    I'm used to the saddle nose providing upper body support on my road bikes. I hardly have any weight on my hands that way. With my tri setup, it's the opposite and a lot of my upper body weight is...

    Intervals and other speedwork will make you faster. You can also get injured and burnout from too much. Three years of riding is good but most serious riders over 50 have lots more. Just enjoy...

    Start on residential streets you are comfortable with. Then gradually move to busier streets and roads. You might pick a time of day when traffic is less. There's a lot do advice about be...

    I agree with rnav that in inspection by a good mechanic makes sense. It doesn't have to be a Trek store but just any person that knows Cf well. The chain stay protector looks pretty chewed up for a...

    If you ride in Atlanta all the time, you likely won't have fogging. Fogging occurs with cold wind and body heat.

    A close friend passed a couple riders downhill on a curve and a pickup truck was in his path. He went off the road at high speed into a ditch and ended up with a punctured lung and 34 fractures. He...

    Most optometrists carry several brands. Try on multiple ones and see what works best for you. I ended up with Oakleys but don't know the model name. They fit well and keep the wind out of my eyes.

    The problem with inserts is fogging. Prescription lenses are the way to go if you can do it.

    Most cables now don't require maintenance and lasts many years. So I wouldn't make that part of any buying decision.
