    J,

    Thanks so much for replying. I wondered if something like that could have been happening, but hadn't ever seen it discussed. Love the balloon example; easy for this technoignoramus to...

    Exploding Tube Mystery

    Ok, I was checking a new tube, to learn why I was having difficulty inflating it.

    The grooves on the stem were not as deep as I'd like, but I did get the Serfas FMP-500 to attach to the tube's...

    I think that that experience made him hungry and he really does seem to be at the top of his game. And as diegomayra posted, this team seems to be letting people know that there will be no support...

    Good experience with RibbleCycles. UK

    On December 22, 2012, I ordered some Campagnolo bolts from RibbleCycles. The bolts arrived at my apartment in San Francisco on January 3. That's quick service for a Christmas holidays order.

    No, you can't. The most interesting part will be what is done about AC's post-2010 TdF victories.

    IMO he's trying to show that he's the best rider in the world and that anybody who thinks that he needs chemical enhancement to win just doesn't understand how good he really is. Not sure any of this...

    In addition to his superior physical ability, Contador is a superb, spontaneous tactician - impossible to predict. IMO Andy Schleck is the only rider who stands a chance against him in a tour.

    Yep. And if you're going to spend any real dough, a set of hand-built alu clinchers with a high spoke count would be good place to do it.

    Very sorry for this news.

    Pacelines and intersections just don't mix. If folks must look back, they should do it when it's safe to move over first. Wish this lesson had been learned another way.

    Jogging in place, with your feet not leaving the ground, is a good way to start. If your ride can begin on flat ground, just ride slowly at first.
