    When I first started riding it took me a bit to get used to the sticker shock. When you are used to paying toy prices from a xmart it is a bit to adjust to. After I rode more and tried out better...

    I have a 2013 and it is a rather nice vehicle. However, I have yet to figure out how to haul all of our bikes as the tailgate is fairly low and I have a family of 5. That and I trashed the inside of...

    What is average for one is underwhelming for another and too much for someone else. It is all relative.

    It depends. Age, experience training, propensity to injury, the intensity of your training plan's current cycle, etc.

    I can speak for myself though. I have been training for 5 years or so and...

    I built up my cross bike with 170mm cranks and cannot tell a difference between that and my FG with 165 and my roadie with 172.5.
    My thought at the time was to have a tad bit more room on off camber...

    I enjoy training and training plans. It is amusing to tweak them and see what happens. Unfortunately I tend to over think everything.

    Anyhow, here are a couple plans from one of my local duathlon...

    Riding as much as you can when you first start out is a good choice. However, if you are a reasonably well trained runner then that short circuits this advice a bit.

    Recovery is equally as important as the stimulus IMHO. Give it a shot. There is always something one needs to work on and it changes as life wears on.

    It depends on the workout goal. Higher intensity workouts I eat a bit extra a couple hours before and immediately after the workout. Endurance or recovery work under 2 hours I do not eat before or...

    I am in the low 150s and headed back to the low 140s for race season. Even at 140 I have fat in irritating places from when I weighed 220lbs. It is what it is. Grow a beard or live with it are your...

    Mine vary so widely that it is impossible to answer this question. My last one was about 17 mph at zone 2 (power) with no wind and minimal climbing. *shrugs*

    A couple hundred bucks is a large chunk of an entry level power meter. Save your money and use trainer road's virtual power.

    I know a rider who swears up and down that riding 23mm tires in the snow is the preferred method. Said person also crashes quite a bit.
    I prefer my cross or mountain bike. A fat bike looks like a...
