    You will burn more fat above this so-called fat burning zone, just not as high a percentage. If you search "fat burning zone" you will find many links where the "fat burning zone" is discredited.

    I hit 176 at age 64. Formula is worthless. Maximum, means ABSOLUTE maximum, no amount of exertion can make it go faster.

    I don't quite know what or how they are measuring, but i don't put much stock in it. 5 mm is not very much if they are talking about the dropout spacing.

    Even if you found statistics there are so many variables the statistics would be meaningless for the times and places you ride at night. One huge variable: are you out there when bars are closing? ...

    I wear levi shorts, a pink cotton t-shirt and push platform pedals with steel-toe work boots on my road bike that isn't strictly that because it has flat bars and MTB drivetrain. Last night, as...

    i would never take statins (liver poison) for those numbers. The flags on blood work are silly. Your total cholesterol is flagged because it is over 200, but that is largely because your HDL is...

    Yes, thinking in terms of watts, it makes a little more sense to me.

  11. "Aero" racing rims that make loud "woosh", how can they be areodynamic?

    When you agitate air molecules you make noise. It might be high pitched, it might be low pitched but it is noise. My conventional 700c wheels make almost no noise. Fancy carbon three spoke wheels...

    Sure it is. If there was already a problem the old crank arms would have been far too easy to remove.

    From my very limited testing, CF does not shatter. After shortening CF steerers or bars, I test the cut off pieces on a heavy duty bench vise or my shop press. Never have I seen anything more than...

    Keep doing what you are doing. The sooner you can get off the cholesterol meds the better -- side effects are played down by big pharma but DO exist. Stopping stains may give you a noticeable...

    Yes and still doesn't shift half as well as any of my bikes with MTB drivetrain.

    Thank you! When I get my hands on the bike again, I will take a close look at the middle ring.

    And, yes, the chain does sometimes fall of to the inside.

    I was rushed working on this during spare time at my real job, and never checked the tooth count, but I think it is 30-42-52. The shift is crappy cruising on level ground, even.

    That is false. A car has a low enough center of gravity that it will not roll end over end in a severe stop.

    That endo factor severely limits a bicycle's stopping ability.
