    Be that as it may, riding plans still have to accommodate reality. This could be accomplished by altering the course, dropping the group, or letting the group by. The correct call is usually a matter...

    I thought someone had modified some kind of helmet to give it the Storm Trooper effect as it had a home made look to it.

    What is it with urban helmets that they never have proper venting?

    Why worry about it at all?

    But if he's hard to disengage from, explanations for performance (e.g. HR maxed out) or suggesting that it would be even desirable to beat him will encourage him. You...

    Exactly. I wasn't meaning to dump on the SP stuff. People here love their stuff, but most of them are riding fairly short distances in cold rain. So it works out great for them. I don't think it...

    Waterproof breathable jackets are designed to be worn with some kind of base layer. The purpose of the base layer is to wick moisture away from your skin so it can pass through the membrane as a gas....

    It's very easy. All you need are decent cutters. Since this is your first time, you'll probably spend more time than normal figuring out where to thread the cable, but once you find that spot, it...

    I'm a fan of Gore Active products in general and of my Oxygen GT AS shell in specific. It's about the weight of a windbreaker so it easily stuffs in your pocket, but it's also fully waterproof and...

    I've put tens of thousands of miles on both, and there's no practical functional or durability difference. There is a minor weight difference as well as the aesthetics issue. Only you can determine...

    If you want to get run off the road by motorists who don't mean it and provoke hostility in others, this is exactly how to do it.

    I have that same problem with all my bikes. I keep hoping I can find a bike that doesn't have that problem but no luck. Yet.

    If it were me, I'd ride to the shop to pick up what I needed to fix the brakes and take care of things immediately.

    But if I couldn't get to a shop for a couple days, I'd ride in the conditions...

    Complete nonsense.

    You can tell exactly where everyone is and exactly how fast they're going. When I see people idiots coming down to buzz me, I drift *towards* them to mess with their heads and...

    "At a given intensity" being the key phrase. 20 miles with 5K feet is going to be way more intense than cruising at 20mph for two hours on the flats unless you're talking about a gradual 5K climb...

    Practically anyone who's ridden long enough has had this happen. BTW, you can have the same tire go flat multiple times on one ride too.



    This is outdated. A decent pump like a Lezyne weighs...

    Who knows, and who cares. On flats, those speeds are not hard to hold onto if you're drafting. On a lot of hills, you can go faster on a bike than in a car because you can use the entire lane.

    It always blows my mind how few 'bent riders advocate DF's for bad backs. I own two 'bents, and while I love them both, I don't consider either to be easy on my back (I have a couple fused vertebrae...

    Don't get psyched. High speed is all about relaxing. If you're not relaxed when something goes wrong, your odds of crashing go up dramatically.

    Also, 30mph is not fast. That is achievable on flats...

    Quite the opposite.

    I find drivers appreciate cyclists taking being seen seriously. Having said that, I don't use the same lighting setup everywhere. What you need in town where there is a fair...

    I wouldn't recommend cleaning a chain with gasoline, more because there's no advantage to stripping it clean rather than the fumes/fire thing. If the shop reused the SRAM link, they did screw it up...

    One more link should be sufficient presuming that the existing chain is the minimum recommended length. You should really size chains properly every time you install one. It's easy and simply copying...
