    Note: I'm not a doctor nor a physio-therapist. Take the following with a grain of salt.

    I remember that show and the "noise" coming out the TV. I've never appreciated the Beatles - at all. It was a few minutes of my life I will never get back again. I still change the station or press...

    Well, considering Jim Fixx, a well-known marathoner, died of a heart attack in his late 40s, I think - If one lives in fear all the time, is that really living?

    My point is I don't worry about...

    An average but "interesting" year for me on the bike.

    - Dunno exactly how many miles - due to multiple broken cyclecomputers and switching between cyclecomputers and GPS's confuse things. I'm...

    I'm "riding" a Bacchetta Giro with a 26" rear wheel "on" a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine trainer. Obviously, my 650c Corsa would also work as would any bike with 700c wheels.

    Being clean and lubed up is generally a good thing - so I learned in a couple of my most enjoyable classes in school.

    One thing at a time. Some repair skills build on others. Other repair skills are "stand alones". Repeatability and consistency are good things to shoot for.

    Traditional advice (as illustrated above) is: join a coop, buy a book, buy tools only as you need them... and on and on.

    Yeah yeah yeah

    My 2 cents: You've now bought a book (and I believe the...

    As I said, I've been to a doctor and it's been diagnosed as an ITB issue. He's got a degree so I take his word for it. Otoh, I also have a problem with bursitis.

    Right now, I'm looking at the Santa Fe-Herrington 1000k in late May.

    It looks interesting and "doable". But, it's got a few transportation issues I have yet to solve - it starts in New Mexico and...

    Okay, here's the deal. As seems to be becoming more and more commonplace each Fall/early Winter, I'm once again rehabbing an ITB/knee joint injury. Also, my 2014 goals list includes completing a 300k...

    Kinda depends on what you want to do and where you want to do it.

    Garmin-wise, out west and/or for off-roading, I'd prefer having the 24k maps. The 100k base map is pretty useless for...

    Put some Schwalbe Big Apples on it and inflate to 40 pounds, like riding on an air cushion.
