    These two things are completely different.
    Seat height has an effect on efficiency. Pedaling style does not. Both have been studied.

    Furthermore seat height has quite a range from 15-35 knee...

    It's not though. I'm seriously behind on several TV-shows so I can use the trainer hours to catch up :D

    Road bike goes in the trainer.
    MTB stays outside and I use it for winter trails and hopefully also for some exploratory cycling. I also have some 3000 lumen lights so the darkness really is not a...

    Aaaw yeaah! had to go as far as sweden to buy me some new winter boots but now that I have them I doubt there can be a temp low enough to stop me. Although I may need a new beanie...

    Vegetable oil works. However the best stuff I've ever used so far is basic cream or base cream (same thing, whatever you want to call it). Just you know the basic white lotion stuff chicks rub...

    Sugar rush is a myth. What you may be experiencing is a subsequent low blood sugar caused by an insulin spike.

    When I feel high blood glucose I get the mild symptoms of a diabetic keto acidosis,...

    Not that much if it doesn't work out for you. I would need to be pretty sure that saddle fits before I bought it. Buying a new saddle is always a gamble but my price limit is in the $100 region and...

    I'm kinda tempted to try one out when I get a touring bike (brooks are just a huge nope for me) but the price tag is really very steep. You can get a fizik...

    The thing is, moderate is really very little. People tend to mistakenly think that a couple glasses of wine or a few beers a day is moderate. I would consider such amounts to be in the region of an...

    Ok, first of all, unless you are a some kind of superhuman you can't feel high blood glucose if you are not diabetic. I get BG's of 215 sometimes without noticing. You as a normal person should only...

    Oooor, just a thought. Since chains nowdays are dirt cheap why not just replace the dang thing.
    I mean I have like 3 replacement chains hanging around the spare parts bin constantly so if I get a...

    FIFY

    I'll take a comfortable seat and suberb handling instead an itchy rashy back and sucky handling any day of the week, or should I say, no handling at all.

    You do realize there is a reason bikes no longer often come with a brooks? I'll give you a hint, it's comfort related.
    A modern seat just usually is more comfortable if you want to have a more...

    a suspension fork is generally not required for winter riding. It just complicates things, you need to get propers suspension fluid for it (the stuff they use in snowmobiles), proper grease etc. And...

    And then there are some who welcome winter riding since its far less technical than actual mountain biking and also a lot safer. I just wish we'd have more trails but I think I'll manage with the...

    Stans does kinda require the tire to be tubeless though... I hear the sealing with tubes is not as optimal as it would be without.

    To the OP. You could try buying schwalbe marathon plusses. They...

    I use toothpaste.
    I hear hair spray works as well

    No, seriously the toothpaste works wonderfully. And it has no granules to cause damage. And your bike smells awesome.

    Well, the differences are quite small if there actually are any. Basically a CX bike is a road bike which can fit wider tires and generally is a bit more robustly built. As we know a CX bike can be a...

    They kinda are though, although not on the same scale. But then again when you're away from a good bike shop what difference does it make? If you snap a wire, or a hydro line you can't fix it anyway....

    Not sure about this but isn't the car hydraulic system fully connected to each other, as in if you rupture the brake line you lose brake power in all four wheels? So then it makes sense to have a...
