    I am not an expert, but I don't think any of the epoxies I have used would absorb water; again, I've used them to seal boats that are used in salt water. I don't know the formulation they use to...

    Epoxy is tough stuff -- I've used it to coat wooden canoes that I've dragged all over hell and gone. I suspect it might yellow a little with long-term exposure to UV, but any top coat you add will...

    Perhaps the easiest way to change gearing might be to change the cassette, assuming that you're now running something that has a fairly narrow range (say ~11-25). If you move to a cassette with a...

    Yes on using a pump, and another vote for one with a hose. I have a Lezyne Road drive (as illustrated above) and it works well.

    Like other handheld GPS devices, I suspect the indoor mode on the Edge 200 is to allow you to access to the device without having it search continually for satellites. I can't imagine it would have...

    I'm 5' 7", 165 lbs, 41" chest -- which is to say too fat for this sport.

    In jerseys, I'm almost always an L, but in the two Castelli I own, I am an XL.

    I'd vote for 25s, as you can run lower air pressure, so they are a bit more comfortable. There's some evidence that 25s have a slightly lower rolling resistance than 23s, but I've never noticed much...
