    I crashed and broke my hip in February. No cars were involved and it was 100% my fault. I was only off the road for 2 months, but when I got back I felt scared for a while. I was scared of cornering,...

    Not a music fan, but I do listen to podcasts on certain rides- usually commutes and long weekend rides. I'm not convinced that it's a safety issue. I can still tell when cars are coming from behind....

    It's usually a lot more expensive, but you can go full custom for just 1 at Jakroo. I've used them in the past and their jerseys and vests are great.
  4. Help me plan my 3-day trip in Oregon & Southern Washington

    Going on a little road trip from 8/20 - 8/24. I'll have 3 full days to ride and am going to do 3 centuries in a row. I want one in OR and one in WA. Here's the plan so far:

    8/20: Get off work,...

    You either love it or you don't. I've never really needed motivation- there's always something new to do. There are new places to see, new distances to ride, new elevations to reach, new time goals...

    I have the Strava link for the ride I did. If you're not on Strava I could export the file for you.

    Otherwise RideWithGPS is my favorite site when it comes to looking for routes.

    To be honest, I think the whole comfort thing is the bike industry's way of marketing to fat people. Look at the comfort bikes- they all have super high headtubes so fat people don't have to bend...

    Finally got around to watching this on YouTube. It was pretty good, but I was expecting more. Some of the other 30 for 30s are so damn good. Maybe those docs are just more interesting when you don't...

    It's a huge wake-up call, isn't it? I mean, you can watch a lot of races and you can tell that guys are going fast, but it really gets put into perspective on Strava when a pro comes through and does...

    I had a similar experience. Here were my original goals: Ride a century every week, complete the California Triple Crown, ride a century in 3 new states, ride across Nevada in 30 hours. I broke my...

    There's a pretty good mix around here. I live less than 5 miles away from a 7.7-mile 5% climb (Geiger) and a 16.6-mile 5% climb (Mt. Rose East). There are 5 other climbs (at least 5% and over 5 miles...

    Lately even "53 cm" on a road bike means next to nothing. There are so many sloping top tubes and everyone seems to measure differently.

    Anyway, I would ignore the MTB fit and just start from...

    I don't understand the whole butt tap thing, either. Seems like wasted energy and taking your hand off the bars for no good reason. Who can't see a good elbow flick? It's been around for years.

    2 times in 10 years that I can remember. Once was on the lip and swelled up nicely. The other was on the head through a helmet vent. I was on a busy road with no shoulder and I could feel the little...

    Back to the original topic, I'll drink vs. eat because on a long ride I'll reach a point where I get tired of eating food and have to get most calories in liquid form. Drink powder is light and easy...

    I've had a similar problem with Heed. I still drink it from time to time to mix things up, but I can't drink only Heed or Perpeteum on a long ride.

    I know there are lots of haters out there, but I...

    Just flick the elbow and pull out. It should be obvious what you're doing. If they want to follow you after you've slowed down, just let them. I'm sure they'll figure it out eventually.

    Agree that drivetrain cleaning is number one. There's no set time interval of how often to do it. I'm pretty anal about it and I like to clean it before a big ride. It's part of the preparation...

    Assos is the best I've tried. The Euro style Chamois Buttr isn't as good, but it's cheaper and good enough, so that's what I'm using these days.

    It's not about how expensive the bike is. It's about how well it's maintained. I did my 500-miler on a Ritchey Breakaway, which is a nice frame and all but not top of the line. My drivetrain was a...
