    I had a heart attack while riding when I was 46 YO. However it was a minor heart attack and they didn't even fix the artery as it's a little one and would take open heart surgery to get at it. So...

    I weight 70 more pounds than you and use the same size tires on my road bike. I put 100 psi in them and never had a pinch flat. At your weight, I'd go with 90 psi max especially if your roads are...

    Ditto on the Schwalbe Marathon Supreme. I used them on 250 miles of the crushed limestone Katy Trail this summer and never had a problem. I weigh 215 lbs and used 700x32s. They are a little on the...

    A spoke breaking sometimes happens and can be replaced. However three spokes breaking at different times probably means something is wrong. Most likely it's that the wheel wasn't built properly in...

    I'm a fan of the KATY Trail. I've done it the last 4 years in June. It can be hot still in September; however, it's usually dry then. That's a bonus.

    My CF Giant Defy Advanced has a CF seat post. And it's not a standard round post; rather, it's teardrop shaped. It kept slipping down so I kept tightening it up. Of course I didn't have a torque...

    My cardiologist told me that a healthy heart won't 'explode' or anything like that short of doing some drugs like cocaine.

    That's a healthy heart. I found out at the tender age of 44 YO that my...

    Look cool.
    Sometimes more difficult for a pump to grip onto.

    For someone like Jens, it's mostly physical. Those guys in the peloton have been taking it relatively easy drafting while the few guys in the breakaway have been each working hard. If it's a sprint...

    A few years ago I was driving a sag wagon for a group ride. A woman had a flat - actually a blowout as the tire was off the rim. It was a very old, but still nice bike that she got from a yard sale....

    Most people can ride 25 miles on plain water or even skip fluids altogether if it isn't too hot outside.

    However after 2 hours of riding, hydration and fueling start to become important. You'll...

    I once had a tire pump that read about 25 lbs low on the gauge. In other words I'd inflate to an indicated 120 psi and it actually had more like 145 psi in the tire. While it never caused a blowout,...

    Broke a collarbone at 18 months old. And that was just the start.

    By time I was 18 YO, I'd broken collarbones 3 more times plus my left wrist. Naturally I'm a lefty.

    Retro Grouch is wise. Once or twice per revolution, maybe the BB area. Three times? Probably one of the wheels. Might even be your seat bag. Does it swing pretty freely or have anything loose in it.
