    And congratulations! I predict you're going to love tandeming. It's the perfect thing. The way we do the effort thing is that we both wear HRMs. Both of us see my (captain's) HR. Only she sees her...

    No fear. Get rid of it. It will only hurt you. Whether or not a DiNotte taillight, HiVis jersey, and mirror will lower your chances of being hit is unknown, but I do all of that anyway. But mainly,...

    I did the Camp Muir backpack with my wife a couple weeks ago. We spent 2 nights at Muir and played around, but didn't go higher. For those who don't know, Camp Muir is the high camp for the most...

    You trapped the tube under the tire when you mounted it. It eventually lifted the tire and blew out between the tire and rim.

    When you install a tire and tube, the tube must be inflated until it...

    Ride away from home or the car until you are exhausted. Then ride back. If you can still walk when you get back, you should have gone harder. Once a week. It should hurt, bad.

    It's very simple. When, as in the case I presented, you see an intersection ahead, but aren't sure how it's controlled, about 200' away you ease off on the power. As it gets closer and you still...

    Wow. When you are at the head of a paceline or on the front of a peloton, you are responsible for the riders behind you. It amazes me that some folks completely don't get that. They'd rather reduce...

    I'm comfortable on any of my DF bikes. 400k in the mountains? No problem. The really weird thing about recumbents to me is that they look fast, they should be fast, yet even though I'm an old, slow...

    IMO whatever you're doing is working great. Don't stop! I'm 69, don't recover well, and I can still easily absorb that much. Rather than thinking about taking time off, I'd think about how I could...

    My guess is that you pulled a muscle. Also possible you strained a ligament. I wouldn't worry for now: just try not to make it hurt bad. A little discomfort is probably fine, pain not. Ibuprofen...

    At ~160 lbs. I rode 23mm tires at 140 lbs. for years, though on a carbon frame. I've lost 10 lbs. and now ride them at 120 lbs. Narrow and hard is definitely faster. There is no tire testing that...
