    As you get older, your metabolism slows. As you put on more weight, your metabolism slows. It's a lose-lose situation. You should keep a food diary, logging everything you eat and the amount of...

    Unless you want to hang a bunch of stuff on your bike, try a nice backpack for your clothing. Easy to put on and take off and won't wrinkle your clothes anymore than a bike bag.

    Road bars may help, but your gearing is probably the biggest. I don't know what your bike runs, but check with a local bike shop and see if you may want to try a different ring up front or on the...

    You need to check the teeth on the chairing and the freewheel. If they look curved and more like a sharks tooth, then you need to replace the chain and the gears. If you don't, a brand new chain...

    Got to try a B17 on my buddies bike the other day. He's taller than I am, so a little stretched out. Felt good when I was just coasting, but not too different from my plastic seat. Oh well.

    From what I can see, they look like standard Shimano pedals. Shoes and pedals are like anything else, you have to experiment and find what you like. Most road shoes are all three hole and accept...

    That's kind of what I was afraid of. Heard they stretch out and the adjuster nut will only go so far, so don't want to spend $ on something that I have to replace just about the time it's broke in...

    Butt was broke in. Rode for 9 1/2 months doing 150-200 miles a week. Had a heart attack and bypass surgery in April and am now getting back to riding. Lost a bunch of weight so now my butt hurts...

    Here's a photo of the Selle I am looking at. Nice shape and cutout, but no rails under the seat for support, just leather and some plastic support inserts. You can adjust a bolt to...

    I had similar to what you had. Turns out I had fractured ribs. The area is full of nerves so you could also have inflammation to the bone area. If you absolutely won't go to the Doc, then take...

    Brooks/Leather saddles?

    I've used mine for walks/runs, and many times it won't pick up the satellite. I used it the other day and it showed 1.18 mi after I'd done 3 miles. It doesn't like it when it's not on the bike. ...

    Definitely a good excuse for some new "Bling" on the bike, but I think in the long run it may be a good piece to have. Sounds like it locks the unit in very securely and makes it a little more...

    Kind of defeats the purpose of having it if I can't look down and get the data I want when I want it. If it accidentally falls out of the pocket, I'd never know either. The K-Edge sounds like it...

    The reviews I read about the K-Edge vs. the Bar Fly is that the K-Edge is a little more Blingish and sturdy. Since I have a gift card through Amazon, I decided to go with the K-Edge as it just looks...

    Computer forward bar mount. Worth it?

    I've got a Garmin Edge 500, which I really like. I use it with the stock bar mount, so it's right on top of the handlebars next to the stem. Noticed that they make a mount that clamps to the...
