    Been running the GSC10 with a Garmin 800 for 4 years. Had to replace the battery once. Works like a charm, no problems. This is on a tandem. Signal is received fine in both the stoker and captain's...

    ^ Thanks! Bookmarked. However, I need 36H rims that I can build myself. I go through ~1 rim/year and need to use my own hubs. It's a tandem.

    OK, we're making progress. Now then. I run 36H Kinlin XC279 rims, 23mm outside, 17mm inside, 28mm deep. How to make these tubeless or what are equivalent tubeless rims?

    Yeah, HR drift maybe from dehydration if it was a hot day. I always use gel on my straps, but your strap is probably fine. From your post, we don't know what your HR was while climbing hard. However...

    Regarding the tubeless vs. tube discussion, I might point out that I ride on roads which have sufficient debris that I've never worn a tire out. I ride clinchers. They always get changed out because...

    OK. So what's the superlative sealant? How often does one add more? If one adds more, does one ever take the tire off and clean it out? Say, tire life of 2000 miles and 6 months?

    Going back to the...

    So educate me on this topic!

    I've always ridden clinchers and am amazed and gratified at how fast, smooth, and flat-resistant clinchers have become since the days before hooked beads. I ride with...

    If you have celiac disease, IBS, or other functional bowel syndromes related to wheat consumption, it's pretty easy to tell: every time you eat wheat you get bad diarrhea or bowel bloat. Every time....

    The only good bungee is no bungee. There's a reason why one of the most common forms of debris on the shoulder are bungees. Use nylon straps and buckles instead. I never see those on the shoulder.

    Hard to beat the wired Cateye Astrale. It includes cadence, which is about the only thing I ever watch on it. Usually ~$30 and an hour to install. I've used these things for almost 20 years. They are...

    Some of the newer devices/websites are more accurate. Strava figures calories from equations of motion and seems close to me. When I import my Garmin 800 ride data into TrainingPeaks, it seems to do...

    I especially liked the photos of calves being born. Who knew that was how they started?

    Typical BF. OP asks a question and everything goes haywire.

    It should be quite obvious to anyone who's...

    Triples. We have longish to long climbs. I like having just the right gear without a lot of fooling around shifting. Tight spacing is good, too. My fave single bike gearing is 52-39-26 and 12-25.

    You're starting to get in shape. My personal definition of fitness is the ability to repeat. It's probably complicated: you clear lactate and bring your blood sugar back up and you're good to go...

    Some folks do better with pedal systems which offer float. Others do better with no float. Flats can usually be considered no float. So maybe you are allowing your feet to move into positions which...

    I comment from a perspective of wanting to be the strongest road rider I can be, or at least within a few percent of that rider. I don't put on protein very well, so I was never worried about excess...

    Some sections of 27 have a nice wide shoulder. Other sections have a 1' shoulder with drains, up against a concrete curb.

    Looking back at this past (successful) season of riding, I spent ~2% of my time weight training. Most of that time was November-February when cycling time was lower, so the percentage was a good bit...
