    Tailwind or a motorpace... One of the local guys here who is now a collegiate national champ took a popular segment by having a university van pace him down a 1.5 mile flat road at 34 mph. He's a...

    I like that diamondback. Not because it's hot by this thread's standard, but because it looks like a fun commuter bike (that would need to come into the office with you to avoid being stolen). Do you...

    Biting? I don't want your secret, I fear the damage I could cause to strava egos. It would be tragic. Feel free to troll some of my absurd segments I've made around Richmond if you'd like and I'll...

    The battery is good for a year or so. They don't make a carbon version, so it's a few extra grams.

    Definitely. This is no longer a discussion of various metrics for average speed, it is now a cyclist's spouse support group.

    A) Strava's value is entirely subjective to the user. I don't think people will care if there are trolls making imaginary rides up.

    B) Enjoy the secret. Use your powers wisely.

    You have posted this before and wouldn't tell us what you do. Do you get their gpx file and change a couple digits or otherwise edit the data to make the whole ride slightly faster and then re upload...

    It is rectifiable by flagging that ride and stating that it was done in a vehicle. The rider will either have to crop it or delete it. It's pretty obvious if you look at the speed plot and they go...

    As far as my wife is concerned, my "ride time" begins the moment I mention to her that I'm going to ride on a particular day and ends the moment I've showered and dressed. What I consider a 1.5 hour...

    I understand your concept of average speed. You're saying that yours is more of a "true average" to you because the stopped time counts toward the total ride time. I'm saying that the more common...

    This thread went well with my morning coffee. OP, your premise is that someone's average speed will be higher if you don't take stopped time into account, right? Maybe in some circumstances, perhaps,...

    I think that's just something you need to deal with when there is a seam in the braking surface. My wheels (a pair of Vuelta corsa lites) have the same "pulising" feeling, and it's because of the...

    No, but I do create a series of challenging obstacles for them to step over/around before they return to their tables.

    It's the logical evolution of Strava anyway. Most segments around here have,...

    I confess... I turned my normal morning ride (which happens to be along a very popular bike route in my area) into about 50 different segments of lengths between .1 and .7 miles at random intervals...

    Did you buy that Madone from the shop with those wheels? I'm impressed that they're selling the 2 series with those, I like that bike (probably because it's so similar to my 3 series).

    Wearing gloves in warm weather saves my shifters and bars from undue sweat corrosion. It makes a huge difference in terms of how grimy my cockpit gets during a hot ride. I'll always wear full...

    Ha, the handlebars in that stock trek photo are so awkard. I'd think you can talk the guy down to 375-350 if you try. This one is listed for 409 or best offer on EBay, which normally gets higher...

    Isn't that bike supposed to be a Tri frame with aero bars only? Is it comfortable at all with that setup?

    I ride every weekday at between 5:30 and 6. I generally feel fine with less sleep than my wife (I can get 6 hours and feel totally rested), so the best option for me to get my needed rides in is to...
