    The new 8 speed Claris brifters are pretty cheap(as brifters go) and do not have the thumb button. I put them on my wife's Team Miyata. She has 8 speed, brifters, and a 105 triple. The Claris...

    Give me a triple every time! With a compact you have to use every cog with both rings to get the gearing you want. But with the triple you can ride in ranges and keep that chain relatively in line....

    Here is another C & V comparison. On the ride mentioned in my previous post, friction is better than indexed and brifters. The ride has lots of V shaped hills, top and bottom. So with the brifters...

    Definitely true. I am 5' 8.25" and around 200lbs depending on the day of the week, time, etc. I ride 54-56 of all different types of tubing and they all feel about the same. Now if you want to change...

    Well, the newest bike in my stable is a 91/92 Team Miyata, so I don't have any modern to compare it to. It does have brifters, an eight speed and a triple, so all of the modern conveniences. It is...

    55 on a steep descent that VDOT had to redo the curve at the bottom because of all of the car crashes there. I hit the mid to high 40's every year descending the Blue Ridge Parkway on a ride. The...

    My DNA test shows I have fast-twitch muscle fibers

    The problem with your theory is that "average" is not an established or set figure. It will move up or down constantly. Using your 5k example, take your runner sample size and submit them all to...

    I did not know what genuflect means. I had to look it up! Plantar fasciitis drove me away from the basketball court 3 or 4 years ago. So in my mid 40s all that was left was golf and endurance sports....

    No, I've been running for about 3 years now. Lots of 5, 8, 10ks and a few 1/2 marathons to date. I do okay on a bike until the direction turns upward. I was using myself as an example. That doesn't...

    Any type of basketball shoe with the exception of Chuck Taylors will have a stiff sole/arch support and ankle roll protection. Find a pair with your style in mind and have at it.

    I would have to disagree. Where else do you get to see a longer course crit, racing over cobbles, featuring 150-198 of the best cyclists in the world? That's right, nowhere! Not to mention, the...

    He might have been last place among the finishers, but he finished. That puts him ahead of Cav, Froome, Alberto, Talanski and the rest of the starters that did not cross the finish line.

    I heard it, but he had a slight pause between China and man. It still sounded odd. It wasn't like "Chinamon." It was more like "China, man." Still doesn't make it right.
