    My cheap Performance shorts went transparent before my Pearl Izumis showed any signs of wear and weren't as comfortable as the Pearl Izumis of the same modern vintage.

    Yeah. Those of us with some extra fat around the middle sweat more and need extra wicking action from tighter fitting jersies. Fortunately that happens automatically.

    I replaced my right shifter 8 speed index cam with a 9 cog part and updated both my 1996 Chorus rear hubs to the new configuration when Campagnolo discontinued my favorite 8-speed cogs (the 13-21)...

    Shimano 8/9/10 cog freehubs are identical with 11 too wide for backwards compatibility, while Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed freehubs have the same splines (sometimes omitting a few for weight) and width...

    If it can be made true with roughly uniform tension in a side except at the rim joint it's not bent.

    Without obvious damage when it's true and tension is uneven within a side you can't know...

    Get a triple crank if you want more range. 50-40-30 x 13-21 was my favorite in th 8 cog era.

    You do NOT want a compact crank.

    After moving on to 9 cogs and wearing out bottom bracket + chain...

    2x20 minutes at or just under FTP or 3-4 x 10 at 105% with 5 minutes rest between intervals.



    For the periods of interest, without the rest of the ride taking too much out of you that isn't...

    73 and sunny. Weather forecasts suggest a toasty high of 80-84 although the morning was perfect in the 60s.

    This is very typical - historic August averages are a daily high of 79 degrees,...

    No. You want to ride at leaast 5 days a week. Fitness is pretty much an exponentially decaying average of your daily work, and that can be higher when you have 20 hours of rest between two harder...

    Sure. New tire on the front. Front tire on the rear. Rear tire in the trash.



    You don't want to do that because front flats are more likely to cause a crash than rears.

    Note however that conventional micrometer torque wrenches are only accurate in the top 80% of their range.

    I don't think there's a reason for the GP 4 season to exist.

    The Gatorskin is flat resistant, long lasting, and has decent rolling resistance plus a pleasantly subjective ride for a tire with...

    50-34 x 11-13-15-17-19-21-23-25-28-34 has atrocious gaps between all of the cruising gears

    It affects how much slack you have when trying to get the last bit of bead over the rim wall.

    No because a single (or triple middle) ring chainline can split the difference between small and big on a double.

    BB386EVO is a way to put a 30mm spindle in a BSA frame which helps win gram counting bench races because that's sufficient diameter to make an aluminum spindle work. It'll also work with BB30/PF30...

    Time. Two hours at a given intensity is the same whether you cover 40 miles on flat ground or 20 miles with 5000 vertical feet up.

    Historically Ultrashift levers have worked for doubles and triples - you use all 6 clicks for triples, but just 3-4 for doubles. Check the replacement assembly numbers if you're worried.

    Disability insurance typically only replaces 60% of your wages, unless you're a...

    In less rural areas roads have traffic lights and stop signs which get in the way of workouts. IIRC I counted 10 stop signs and 24 traffic lights (only one of which was a right turn) over the 12...

    While sound takes energy it doesn't take much to be "loud." Regardless of how much energy your wheels turn into noise it's not significant.
