Fixed only checkpoint/road race.
Anyone know a source for a replacement rear spoke for a 2010ish Mavic Aksium Race wheel? I've got the Mavic tech docs and it lists the following:
Will any straight pull, bladed spoke work?...
Thought this was pretty interesting. Strategies for Elimination Races / Strategies for Spring Racing (direct PDF link below):
I'd question anyone who claims the Silver Comet trail is "on the Northwest side of town." The rest of your post is pretty unhelpful as well.
Anyway, I've gone ahead and mapped out what I think...
Thanks for the input everyone!
That's precisely why I asked. Didn't want to make people sit around while I try out events that aren't really appropriate for my age/category.
Is it bad form to sign up for every solo event on a pursuit night?
I went to my first pursuit night at the Dick Lave Velodrome last night. Distances offered were 500m, 1k, 2k, 3k, 4k and team...
To those who race on clinchers; how many hours do you prefer to have on a new tire before you consider it ready for race use? What about racing in rain?
I've got some Continental Grand Prix tires...
I think so. They look like all the other forged cogs I've seen, and seem to be round as anything else. They mesh well with the chains I've used (KMC410, KMC710, SRAM PC1); no excessive sound or wear....
I wasn't going to post anything until I read this part:
If I were in your shoes I'd check out the facilitator thread in C&V and see if you can work out a deal wherein someone in...
Shoe-Goo works pretty well. I generally get a week or so worth of time (5-7 rides) before it rubs off. Make sure to clean the area with rubbing alcohol and let dry before applying. It's also better...
What is your goal?

Nuun contains Sorbitol. Like almost all sugar free sweeteners it can cause gas and bloating when ingested. The wiki notes this under "Overdose Effects" but even a much smaller dose will cause...
I hold my line.
A triathlete whining about something?
The mind boggles.
You have to ask the right questions.
Nobody anywhere knows what a "Overlap Clearance" measurement is because you made it up. Most everyone knows, can measure, or can call and ask what the...
The measurement you want is called Front-Center. Do the math yourself.
Bikeshop Warehouse is also somehow related to the BikesDirect empire.
I have a GT I purchased from Bikeisland. Based on the massive amount of various GT bikes I've built up in the shop I can...
Vuelta A Miami?
I think there is a feed zone. Find a friend for water hand-ups. You can easily carry enough food in your pockets.
Here's a race report from 2009....
What's with the age group references I've been seeing lately? Is this a triathlon or bike race?
Mountain bike or Cyclocross bike for fall/winter?
There's more CX races but I already have 3 drop bar bikes and it seems like an MTB would be something different. Especially on the...
