True. Ultra-distance riders will take advantage of this. My bike fit page addresses this, offering technical advice on set-up with both traditional quill stems and threadless.
I love orcas. We have resident pods and sometimes, from the ferry, I see transients heading up Georgia Strait.
The best time was when I was kayaking up Johnstone Strait and a big group swam by...
I use Sprintech mirrors on my road bikes
I'd try a stationary bike at the gym to begin with. I've experienced long-term physio, and a spinning bike is particularly helpful.
I'm not a medical pro, but I have had achilles issue before....
I actually mount my camera(s) on my bike, or rather bike rack. As discussed here, I use two cameras: a Nikon D7000 and a smaller Olympus Camedia C-560.
To attach cameras, I have an old flash...
For the first time in years, no.
But I did watch lots of hardy cycling souls battling the wind/rainstorm that brought down trees and lifted roofs ... from the comfort of my hotel room above the...
Lots of books to read while I'm recovering.
For me, it wasn't a matter of putting down the car keys.
As illustrated on the VeloWeb home page, I was a "serious" cyclist long before I could apply for a drivers' licence.
And, after moving...
Ride your bike, ride your bike, ride your bike. Nothing better to learn about riding longer distances. You won't learn that in a gym.
I started this thread 2 years ago and now the 2011 PBP aspirants are on their way to France. I won't be going.
Instead, I'm writing my Long Road to Paris-Brest-Paris series and ready to follow...
Anyone who pays top dollar for Honjos, gets top quality and is likely to be very happy with the product.
Like maintaining bicycles themselves, fitting Honjo fenders requires a little mechanical...
I have ... I dunno, lost count. And I always wear one under my helmet. Keeps the head warm on chilly days and cool on hot days, with the application of water.
During the coldest days of winter, I...
Blow torch? ;)
It's not just about formulas. The jumps between front rings--and what a rider will tolerate on wide range gearing--play an important part of the decision.
I still cram my bikes in the trunk, pad with foam and bungee down the lid.
Make sure you don't have a lopsided testicle.
I guess my years spent working in bike shops, often discovering farked pedal bearings as the source of mysterious clicking has no merit then.
Glad to hear you survived in one piece. Helmet use is mandatory here (though not everyone obeys) and after seeing a few close calls, I'm of the opinion that they are worthwhile ... though I didn't...
Don't want to see that horror again. Madman.
Go to sports med clinic.
I'd guess BB as well ... but check pedals closely before you go pulling the BB out. It's east to change pedals and see if the noise disappears.
