    Let me put that 4.5 mile neighborhood ride into perspective (and echo what others here have said) - My 59-year-old wife and I went on the Amishland & Lakes bicycle tour a couple of weeks ago. I was...

    I've been screwing around with cycling videos since last year. I recorded a bunch last season but discovered that I'm always tilting my head to the right, so helmet mounting didn't work. I thought I...

    On the topic of wet - I can highly recommend this as a good seat cover. I rode for two days in pouring rain with this cover in place. The cover survived without any issue (I've seen reviews of other...

    Smart folks! :)

    Not much working going on during the weekend, but I saw one Amish farmer on a tractor, and another using a horse-drawn mower on what looked to be some pasture. The mower was...

    When we first visited this area, I was surprised how many Amish women work at the flea markets, restaurants, gift and antique shops, grocery stores, etc. The whole area is peppered with these...

    I had the LBS put a B17 on a new bike I took delivery of last year. I knew that I didn't care much for the stock seat. The B17 felt pretty good initially, and felt better as the season progressed,...

    The wife & I also did the Amishland & Lakes tour - our third. Marcy's not much of a rider. In fact, this was actually her first time in the saddle all year. She's recovering from a bout of shingles...

    I'm just watching from the sidelines here, but it seems that there is a serious lack of communication - it sounds like Carbonfiberboy is saying that it's ok to run your paceline into traffic and risk...

    I too am a fan of bibs - even when I was at my thinnest (about 10 lbs less than I am now) regular shorts tended to roll at the waist. No problems with the bibs. They're stretchy enough to "pump...

    That may be a correlative indicator, but I don't think there's anything causal about the relationship. It think it's more a matter of people who adhere to these principles which suggests a high...

    Well then don't start - you might never wear anything else!

    I too originally shied away from spandex, but for me it's so incredibly comfortable that when I ride with something less form-fitting...

    Personally, I like clipless pedals, and the one I like on all my bikes is the Shimano PDM324. Not only do they support the SPD multi-release cleats, they can be flipped over to go platform when...

    I hear ya - I've gone from SPD to SPD-SL and back to SPD (with dual-purpose clipless/platform pedals) for exactly the reasons you mention. I really liked the SPD-SL setup, but they're good ONLY when...

    Climbing and acceleration (like when I find myself in too high a gear and have an opportunity to scoot across that 5-lane city thoroughfare) come to my mind.

    I've never felt that, but I started using clipless when I rode a SWB recumbent (in which case they're almost mandatory - don't know how you'd ride one of those without being clipped in!), so I...

    Amen.

    It is a personal preference. Do what you're comfortable with, and let others do the same.

    One other piece of advice - one that I often don't follow as often as I should, and at least once I regretted it. Coming up to a stop, do NOT just unclip one foot. It's so easy as you come to that...

    Man, I'm glad I didn't hook up with you guys!

    My sister and I did the metric at an average of 12.9 - we'd have been wheezing hard to keep up with Marc and FreedomRider!! :)
