    I was going to reply with basically this. You threatened him in some way down deep that caused him to feel justified in lashing out.

    I've never had this kind of reaction in a store or while...

    I try to eat a fairly normal breakfast on race day, and a fairly mundane dinner the night before. Hard to do if you're in a hotel, but race weekend is not the time to experiment with unknown foods....

    You will get conflicting advice about this.

    The oldschool advice is the more conservative voice, meaning you'll hear things like "you'll break carbon" and "get a hybrid until you lose weight." ...

    I fit my Tri training into the rest of my biking season, which is going to have many events of very different length. Most weeks, I try to ride 3x per week (plus 1 night of swimming, 2 nights of...

    I was actually thinking along these lines now that I've had the bike a few days. I don't currently have a SS, and setting it up to compete with the Cross Check will cause it to get more neglected.

    I got a Zoot Tri Suit, but only because I got it on clearnace and it was cheaper than buying separates.

    It's comfortable enough, although as MikeD1 points out, it makes it somewhat a pain to hit...

    Very nice. I like that era too. Clean and quick looking. :)

    The current gfx with the "courier" style font looks a little too plain to me. The vigorelli in celeste is classy looking, but the...

    I found the S/N - N9S6988. Based on the decoding available online, it's an 89. That seems too new to me (a non-expert!) based on the other components and the 5 speed cassette, but who knows how...

    Looks good. Always nice to see a cousin of my Imola. I like the gfx from that era better than the current Imola/Pista/Vigorelli's.

    Centurion Lemans - 1970s?

    Picked this up today. Any help figuring out what I bought is most appreciated. I found the page on Sheldon Brown's site that tells me it's probably 1970s and not 1980s.

    With a few minutes...

    I got it. It wasn't a Peugeot, it was a Centurion LeMans, 10 speed. I know next to nothing about it, maybe I got taken, but at the price I paid ... probably not. It's a lugged frame, so I took it...

    We mostly follow the south beach / glycemic index mentality, and what caught my attention was the 'no simple sugars' label on Hammer products.

    Local races usually treat me the best. Nothing like packing up the night before, sleeping in your own bed, and hopping in the car after a breakfast in your own kitchen.

    We started off biking in 2008, wanting to lose weight and get more fit.

    I didn't want to be "on a diet" so we didn't follow any particular plan or gimmick. We generally just ate better and...
