    It's a good idea, but not too practical for bikes. Some future car models are supposed to be coming with cameras instead of outside mirrors, to help lower wind resistance (and for looks, too, I'm...

    Yes, the "New My Maps" at google is terrible. I used to use the old version to easily make a starting location map. I would just drag a pointer into the map, label it, and save the map with a name....

    Yes, ridewithgps does use google's address number correctly. I typed in a local address as the starting point, and it was accurate.

    There was another thread last month, Pedaling in a group, with some good comments. A lot of the posts were about soft pedaling. And how being smooth and predictable is always good.

    23c GP4000S tires work great on the Ardennes Plus rims, which are 25 mm wide. I know, it sounds strange.

    The rims measure 25.6 mm and the 23c tires are at 26.6 mm when inflated. (To take the...

    A 50-15 is 88 gear inches, and a 50-14 is 94 gear inches.
    At my preferred 90 rpm, the 15-15 is 23.5 mph, and the 15-14 is 25.2 mph.

    I'm more at a range of 50-19, 18.6 mph, to 50-17, 20.8 mph. ...
