    I'll be sure and start referring to my wife's torso as "upper junk", I'm sure she'll find that MARVELOUS.

    Also... did the OP really expect "helpful" from a post about his stress about the...

    I'd love to not ride after dusk, but I have a hell of a commute, so I get home pushing 7pm, and by the time I've done a bit of parenting and gotten my small person to bed, it's 9pm easy, and with...

    Yours must have the same setup as mine... mine's doing the same speed whenever I check on it.

    Overall for the year, I'm averaging I think around 0.05 mph or thereabouts, but I DID get a late start...

    Sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of my mortgage, home equity line, two car payments and credit cards... there's a TERRIBLE echo here in my completely hollow bank account.

    I wonder whether maybe it's tied in to the requirement for when headlights are used on cars... it probably conforms to the local rules for that... if you're requiring people to use their headlights...

    While driving, I find the rear reflector on bicycles I pass to be completely, absurdly ineffective. Part of my indifference to keeping it on wasn't fashion but just function... a $10 blinkie will be...

    This was my thinking, yeah, and I had a bad feeling this was going to be the answer :)

    Small consequence of the fashion of removing reflectors all over the place.

    Are they required on wheels...

    I've gotten a second set of wheels that I use for on-road shenanigans, swapped out the crank (weird asymmetry) and the shifters (tiagra right shifter pooped out on me), but otherwise it's been a...

    Lack of Reflectors an Issue?

    I tried to search and found nothing specific to this... I ride with a bevy of lights on while on the road, HID and blinky up front, two bright blinky/steady lights to the rear. I know I'm plenty...

    I would say it differently. It's certainly not easy, but it's definitely simple.

    Burn 3000 calories, eat 1500. Switch it up so you don't go into starvation mode and have your metabolism slow...

    As far as I recall, the alcohol consumption inhibits testosterone production, or something like that... that in turn means you don't build strength as quickly, don't recover as quickly etc. Calories...

    Compared to all of these others, mine's an oddball AND a senior citizen... but here it is, being used in anger last Friday.

    Wait. I mean, I'm not being critical in principle, given that I've got plenty of my own gut, but what does it mean to have a gut that's well defined? Are we talking like... "webster's defines a gut...

    I'd say the stretch on the loop I did on Friday is 450ish feet up per the gps/strava info, and is 1.4 miles, with a flatter quarter mile toward the end. Steep enough for me, but feels good to get up...

    I feel pretty certain that I COULD do it now, just a question of whether my knee would rebel and put me in some hurt for a few days afterwards.
