    Shaved legs on ~40+ year old men is just not a good look.

    I'm itching to try a 28mm GP4000S II on the back wheel of my Roubaix but literally nobody that ships to the US has had stock on them for 6+ months.

    Unless it's a hill with at least a 6-7% grade the wind can seriously throw off the accuracy of estimated power. Think about how much harder it is to ride into a strong headwind and how easy it can be...

    I was prepared for a customs delays. I've had stuff take almost 30 days to arrive from the UK. The problem was that once I installed everything on the bike and discovered they sent the wrong RD my...

    I'm not waiting 1-4 weeks for them to send me the backing plate then another 1-4 weeks to send the derailleur. That would mean I have no decent bike to ride for weeks. It's completely unreasonable to...

    Not really, the lightning bolt symbol next to the wattage number means they were using a power meter. You can see the people with power meters are a good ~15-30% lower than the estimate power of the...

    Thanks, I might have to do that if they don't make it right. No response today from the inquiry I sent yesterday on their website.

    Something is amiss. The 25's would have slightly less rolling resistance at the same pressure. The aero difference is 1-4w at 30mph which I doubt you'd feel. Maybe the tires were rubbing the brake...

    It's roughly a 4:1 conversion from Kj to calories (i.e. multiply calories by 4 to get Kj.) Since humans are about 25% efficient it means to do 1542Kj of work you had to actually burn 4X that much...

    Hating Ribble Right About Now

    Ordered a 11sp 5800 105 group set from Ribble. First, they forget to include the support bolt and plates for the FD so I had to get that on ebay. Then I got the group installed on my bike and me and...

    My jerseys don't really fit. I really need to replace them all. The bibs still fit pretty good thanks to my massive guads.

    The battery is only a few months old. It still works intermittently but it's not reliable anymore. The soft straps just don't last very long IME. If I replace it I'll probably get the hard plastic...

    Fair enough, but neither is your novel hypothesis about electrolyte balance either.

    I cycle 150-200 miles per week but I also make a point to walk 7-8 miles per week to maintain bone density.
