    In the future, try using heat. A friend suggested that after I spent two days trying to get a pedal off. I heated up the very end of the crank for about 20 seconds with a small flame from a butane...

    Once you have enough air in them to avoid pinch flats, it's really up to you. Experiment with different PSI on different days riding the same route & see what works best for you.

    The CAAD 9/10 is a great deal IMO. I also like the Allez E5 frame & the Cervelo Soloist/S1/etc. If you know what you want & your size, go CraigsList. You can always pick up a cheap frame & build it...

    FrankieV, I think I was on that year's Harlem Valley Ride. That was the most intense downpour I've ever ridden in. I really questioned my sanity finishing the 100 in the rain & lightning.

    If that's the block near Grand Central, it's chaos at almost all times of the day.

    People running into the street against the light, cabs jockeying for fares, and people jumping out of cars trying...

    The bike lanes are already another revenue stream for the city. Cops are starting to ticket cars & trucks that park in them. Granted, they probably ticket one out of a thousand, but still....

    Just wake up early to ride before work. Once you get into the routine, it's easy. I get the bike & everything ready the night before.

    Clearly, some people in that video are doing whatever they want, but I'd bet the street level view would be vastly different. The timing of traffic lights sometimes forces cars, bikes and pedestrians...

    Enjoy it. I've done it a few times & it's a great ride. The 150 route can be a bit of a grind towards the end, but it's still fun.

    You had a 'support vehicle'?!@ Wow. I eat & drink little on long rides, but I can't imagine not eating at all on an 80+ mile ride. Even at slower speeds, you're burning off a ton of calories after...

    15 degrees or colder Saturday & Sunday am. Cloudy & windy makes for a nice 'Feels like' temp of about 8 degrees.

    But feel free to continue complaining... :lol:

    Don't you have enough steel bikes over there already? Why would you want a retro version of a middling frame?

    For me, it's less about the actual temperature and more about the sun & wind.

    Old Man Driver: Hilariously unapologetic
