    2013 was a low "investment" year for me. Getting a house ready to sell, moving to a rental, building a new house, etc., no real time to train, but felt that I made the most of my limited fitness and...

    If you can keep a decent position on the TT bike for 5 hours, you don't need much fitness to do a 5 hour century. It's pretty hard to average less than 20mph on a TT bike unless you're just poking...
  3. Specialized Cb-R seatpost - are these available?

    I bought a specialized Roubaix frameset last April. It's an S-works model that was supposed to have the CB-R seat post (the cobble gobbler if you will). When I unpacked the new frame from the box,...

    I've got many thousands of miles on KMC chains and have never had a problem. That said, I just picked up a couple ultegra chains at PBk for $23 each, which is less than I paid for the last batch of...

    State TT today, 40k, pretty flat and non-technical course. It was my first attempt at a 40k.

    I haven't been racing/training much this year, so I've been cramming for this TT for the last few...

    Nice job, congrats on the podium. I was in the same race, made a half-assed attempt for the second prime and missed it by a spot or 2. I haven't been racing much and my fitness sucks, so it was...

    I'm the same height with a little longer inseam. I've owned both and and I prefer a 56. Most people can ride a couple different sizes, it's just a matter of setup. Generally, it's easier to make...

    Yeah, I personally don't care for the look but that's ok if it works well. There are a couple road races I do with their share of nasty roads and I'm planning to use this bike for those races as...

    My frame is an s-works, it's the only frame they come with I think.




    Yes.

    Thanks, sounds like it's worth waiting. I'll just run a regular post until the new one comes in. I've been wanting a new Roubaix for a while and finally decided to pull the trigger after a 100 mile...

    These are the kind of people I would never leave my bike with. They are either stupid or trying to mislead you. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and just think they are stupid.
  12. Specialized Cobl Goblr seat post - Are they available? Worth waiting?

    I just picked up my new Specialized Roubaix frame and it was supposed to come with the Cobl Gobl-r seatpost (sort of a funky design to smooth the ride a bit).

    Anyways, the frame didn't have a...

    With the exception of using a pm to pace effort in a TT or break, you are correct that it doesn't really come into play much in a race (at least not for me). A PM is primarily a training tool and a...

    Noted... The course this week is much more conducive to dishing out pain. When you attack, there won't be as many fresh legs able or willing to chase. I have no idea what to expect out of my legs,...

    I was in that race also. I thought the pace was the typical "slowishly fast" for that course. It doesnt' really matter if you are averaging 25 or 28mph, there isn't enough aggression in that 4/5...

    That 4/5 race is frustratingly jerky at times, I find it harder in some ways that the 3/4 or masters open (harder to sit in, not harder to get results). The 3/4 and masters are a little faster, but...

    I get a sick enjoyment out of a 20' intervals, but absolutely hate 1' repeats or any kind of full out sprint stuff. I wonder how much of slow twitch vs. fast twitch is mental, some guys I know just...

    Thanks Ex, Your TT guidance was key to getting me on the podium (by 1 second). I looked at the numbers today and the pacing was better than I initially thought, but still too hot on the way out. ...
