    Tough crowd. I get Bicycling through the PB deal too, but I like getting it -- nice photos of new, shiny bikes please me.

    As others have mentioned, sports cars can outcorner sport motorcycles (even though I wish it wasn't true, it is); a bicycle wouldn't stand a chance except in a very narrow range of unusual...

    Just yesterday, a friend did her first metric century and along the way she explained that she caught up on This American Life. Now, I like that show fine, but when I am on the bike, I prefer music...

    Need? Since when does that have anything to do with buying a bike ;)

    Focus bikes are really quite nice. Damned boat-anchor of a crank on that Cayo though, the ubiquitous Gossamer.

    Nearly useless background: I bought that bike from CC last year and had them ship me Aksiums at the same time; I changed the brakes to Rivals shortly thereafter. I found a new Rival crank on eBay...

    My GUESS is that whatever is holding that arm together is tough stuff and probably pretty darned immune to an occasional water bath. I'd also...

    I am not an expert, but I don't think any of the epoxies I have used would absorb water; again, I've used them to seal boats that are used in salt water. I don't know the formulation they use to...

    Epoxy is tough stuff -- I've used it to coat wooden canoes that I've dragged all over hell and gone. I suspect it might yellow a little with long-term exposure to UV, but any top coat you add will...

    Perhaps the easiest way to change gearing might be to change the cassette, assuming that you're now running something that has a fairly narrow range (say ~11-25). If you move to a cassette with a...

    Yes on using a pump, and another vote for one with a hose. I have a Lezyne Road drive (as illustrated above) and it works well.

    I'm 5' 7", 165 lbs, 41" chest -- which is to say too fat for this sport.

    In jerseys, I'm almost always an L, but in the two Castelli I own, I am an XL.

    I'd vote for 25s, as you can run lower air pressure, so they are a bit more comfortable. There's some evidence that 25s have a slightly lower rolling resistance than 23s, but I've never noticed much...
