    I believe the max psi rating is 60. I could be wrong, but I think that's what I read. Could the heat with the increase in pressure plus the weakening of the rubber cause the blow out? I know that...

    So I like to go riding right after work, which means that I have to keep my wheel & tire in the trunk during the day. About 3 weeks ago, I opened my trunk to discover a blow out and had to replace...

    Eat less, drink more....er, well drink less too actually.

    Apart from riding (which I've slowed down on a bit with the weather and my schedule) I've completely changed the way I was eating. I went...

    I did it!

    As of weigh in this afternoon, I'm under 200. This is the first time I've been this light since probably high school. Another 30-40 left and I'll be at my target weight.

    I'm only 5'10 - 5'11, so I...

    Not that you'd have to half ass the seat and place yourself all the way off the side, but a shift in body weight.

    Holding more speed through a corner = less acceleration to be done afterwards....

    So why don't bicycle racers have suits and helmets that allow balls out without worrying about tearing yourself up too badly? They don't have to be as big and heavy as a full leather suit of course,...

    Leaning has everything to do with turning on a motorcycle when you're starting to push the limits. Leaning yourself off the bike towards the ground lowers your center of gravity and allows the bike...
  16. Physics, motorcycles, and turning faster than everyone else.

    So how far can you lean off a road bike when taking a corner without toppling over?

    I mean, that's how motorcycles turn. Would you be faster in a corner where you wouldn't lose much momentum...

    I went for a 17.5 mi road ride that seemed like nothing but hills yesterday. If you're on a particularly nasty hill, I'd suggest unclipping if you're starting to lose momentum and pedal that way. I...

    Find a nice long stretch of road/trail that's relatively flat and go for it. Don't bother looking, just get used to where you put your feet to clip in at.

    Also, remember, catch the front and push...
