    The pics show the full extent of any visible damage. In fact, since I zoomed in with...

    A few thoughts:

    First, I'm disappointed that the UCI has not taken disciplinary action against MC. This was not just about fighting for position. He deviated from his lane and intentionally made...

    Imagine my relief that I don't have to get it. Thanks for that clarification. As you probably suspect, I don't need a map feature in a race, either, but as I assume you also suspect, I ride my bike...

    Great thread! I increased my time with the weights again around August and have really noticed the results. I actually notice it most on steady, moderately hard efforts, such as a long tempo effort...

    When I first really got into road cycling, I went crazy trying to find a comfortable saddle. Looking back, saddle comfort finally came for me about the same time I really started working on my core...

    It's always a good day when a smartass comment results in me learning something new. Thanks!

    In addition to the other good advice here, nobody has mentioned race radios and a team car driven by a Directeur Sportif. Why would you attempt a two-person paceline without such support?

    I'll tell you what the other posters are too polite to say: It's past the autumnal equinox...you missed the boat on buying a new CAAD10. Better luck next year.

    I only race a couple of crits per year, so I'm no expert, but since bike handling is my most important criteria (in any race), I race with one bike. I put money into fit, as others have said, and...

    No-see-ums account for a signficant portion of my in-saddle nutrition. On some rides, I'm like a whale swimming through a plankton cloud.
