  5. Professional fit doesn't seem to be working. What next?

    So I finally caved and did a professional fit seeing as how this was always the de facto response to almost any question about comfort and pain relief on a bike. I believe it has helped a tad but...

    Thanks for the responses. I'm going to a bike shop today and taking my current saddle. I'll let you know how far off my measurements were. FWIW, I kept the saddle the bike came with. I'm assuming...
  11. Bike sit. Saddle is tearing the $%^ out of me. /Sol Rosenburg

    I'm trying to determine if, perhaps, my seat is too narrow. I mean, it looks narrow just looking at it.

  13. Quick question for those that use Trainerroad

    I've finally got everything set up and am ready to do my first Trainerroad workout.

    I understand the concept(s) behind wanting to keep tire pressure and trainer tension constant from workout to...

    As you can see from my inability to post a link properly, you're dealing with a newbie when it comes to tech.

  20. Halp! Wahoo or other cycling tool w/ Iphone 4?

    So I'm in an unenviable position where I'm stuck with an Iphone 4 but it appears as if all the cadence/power meter products I've come across are only compatible with Iphone 4S and up. I'm kind of...

  22. Any suggestions on a training book or website?

    I'm looking for something that'll get me in shape for the summer. Disclaimer: I'd say I'm a Category 7 if there was such a thing. I'm 6'; 200 lbs right now. I'm in ok shape but not near good...
