    Damn. Haven't been on here in a while, and this isn't what I wanted to see coming back. Get better soon, Dan!

    I have a titanium Lynskey and sold a carbon Kestrel about 18 months ago. Honestly, there's little to choose between them when it comes to ride, vibration damping, etc. The wheels and tires have...

    I've had the same experience with Assos - I wear a L with their stuff, but XL with Aerotech or Sugino. I'm 5'10" and my weight fluctuates between 210 and 225.

    Direct from Aerotech - couldn't find them locally but they were highly recommended. For the Assos, I bought them locally so I could make sure they fit (aka I paid full retail - ouch!). I was going...

    I've used the Aerotech bibs, as well as many other brands. The Aerotechs are fine - the seams aren't in sensitive spots and don't bother me. For me, these are good shorts but not my favorites. I...

    This won't answer your question 100%, but on http://breakingnews.ewg.org/2011sunscreen/ there's a breakdown of the ingredients of many of the sunscreens on the market, including health concerns. You...

    I use the Bag Balm - it works, and it lasts a good long time. However, it's base is petroleum jelly - Vaseline. Lots of people get reactions to it, and I've heard it can break down some materials...

    The padding on the shorts isn't really there to provide more padding - it's there to reduce or eliminate chafing. Fast89fox is correct - more padding often makes things worse, not better. The extra...

    Calaveras Rd from Sunol is a good recommendation - not real steep, and the climb is a couple of miles long. You have to go a few miles south from Sunol before the actual climbing starts, though -...

    Count me among the riders who have tried the GP4000's and a bunch of other similarly priced tires. My take (in chronological order)?

    It's funny, but it just didn't seem right to be out there riding those passes without a BenRidin sighting! How was your ride?

    My first year doing it was the last one Alta Alpina was involved in - they definitely knew how to put on a ride. The rest stops and general organization are adequate now, but not at the same level...

    Back for another year! This was my 4th Death Ride. For those unfamiliar with it, this is a tough one day ride - variously reported as 124 - 129 miles and 15 - 16,500 feet of climbing. It goes over...

    4th for me - the best weather yet. Some TnT folks I was riding with were having a tough day, and I stayed with them rather than chasing the 5 passes. Still had a great ride and ran into some old...

    Different gaps - the 12-32 is actually the same as the 11-23 gear spacing, minus the 11 but adding the 32 (ok, and the next largest is a 24 instead of the 23). For my riding style, the 28 on the...

    You can save a few $ by going for the Apex RD and cassette. They work identically to the Rival components, but just weigh a bit more.
