    Well...

    I was never very good at Mountain Biking, but always liked doing it for fun. My coach (when I had one) would always get annoyed when I wanted to do Mountain bike stuff, since (in Texas),...

    Felt AR vs. Specialized Tarmac

    Alright... Short version...

    I've been more or less out of the sport for a year or so, having gone a little too hard and burnt myself out last year. Took a while off and rowed, which was fun, but...

    I rowed at UT (that's Texas) this last year, and before that, spent 2+ years on the cycling team.

    From experience.... Riding will help your rowing a lot more than rowing will help your riding.

    I justified it by the fact that I was without a road bike for ~2 months this year because of stuff being broken. I'm 99% sure I'm going to sell the White/Pink one (OK, without the Pink maybe) in the...

    How do I remove BB30 bearings?

    OK, I'm confused... On my new Tarmac, I'm swapping the Specialized crankset for the new SRAM Red BB30 crankset. It would seem to me that the bearings should just push out (or at least that's how it...

    I know... It's more the idea of the whole thing. IMO, if you have the results to cat up, you should. See: Colton or Draye... If you can win a Cat 3 race, you can be competitive in a p12.

    No, I'm really not racing. That's BS. Now I have to put up with a bunch of Cat 3 sandbaggers protesting a rule change. It's not fun for me or anyone else.

    Thanks, Botto. That's about the answer I was looking for. I kind of figured it didn't matter, but I don't really have experience with all brake options.

    Brakes... Which ones?

    I'm putting together my new Tarmac now for next year's racing and have gotten stuck on brakes...

    I'm down to 3 options... SRAM Force, SRAM Red, or Dura Ace (7800, not the new stuff).

    Take up another sport for a while. Seriously. I suggest running, rowing, or something of the like. It's working for me. I'm at least willing to ride my bike occasionally again.

    Matt... It comes in 2 versions. Boonen's bike has the standard (Italian or English) BB cups. The module (or complete bike, as I'm probably buying) has a completely different BB.
