    This is great. We are hand wringing over whether or not we are hand wringing. I could never have predicted this. Excuse me for a moment while I head to the kitchen for another tub of popcorn.

    It's other folks wringing their hands. I'm just eating popcorn and stirring the pot. This one is brilliant. Eight pages (and counting) is quite an accomplishment.

    At Memorial Park in Houston there is a 1.17 mi loop with both right and left turns. Its a full sized street, smooth asphalt. No cars most of the time. Mostly cyclists and a few skaters. They run...

    I bet that smarts. Steel may be real, but bamboo is for you.

    Easy to do with a 40 spoke rim and hub, laced triplet style. Use three holes on the rim and skip one. Use 20 holes on the DS of the hub and 10 holes on the NDS. Skip every other hole on the hub. ...

    When I was at my cycling peak in both quantity and quality in the late '80s, I was getting about 1/2 my 6,000 annual miles on a 2.5 mile loop that started a couple of blocks from my house. It was the...

    You are nuts. Ride where you feel like riding. Don't ride where you don't. What could be simpler. This isn't metaphysics, it's exercise.

    I was just thinking a change is due and was wondering when it might be coming.
  9. Yeah, right. There have been a couple of...

    Yeah, right.

    There have been a couple of posts in this thread joking about composite articles getting soft like CF frames and now glass fiber boats. The dofference between these type of articles...

    Inelegant at the the very least, but not inscrutable.

    That sounds like a very fruitful session.

    I don't mind front planks, the side ones hurt my elbows and shoulders. I don't have any problem with my back or abs doing them, just supporting my weight...

    OP said non-carbon. And you could build 10/20 rear wheels based on triplet lacing. There are 8/16s and 9/18s, why not 10/20s. Just keep it simple.
  14. If the meaning is 30 spokes for the pair, the...

    If the meaning is 30 spokes for the pair, the question is stupid. Tons of choices if you don't interpret the question wrong. Plenty of Vuelta models. Custom built from BHS or BDop type parts. On and...

    Good job. There's no reason my personal distaste for running should affect you. I'm just lucky to have found one exercise form that works for me. More than one would be nice for me, but it is not to...

    Understood. No argument. But lots of folks are riding that price bike. Or have multiple bikes that cost that much or more. With or without the light weight.

    What happened? You capitalized the first letter of the sentence. You aren't ill, are you?
  18. Certainly it costs more than to buy a heavier...

    Certainly it costs more than to buy a heavier bike, but it doesn't have to be exorbitant. I bet you can do it for $4,000 easy. That would be a custom build of course with lots of home wrenching. And...

    The basis for a suit is that the warranty wording is deceptive. If the decision is totally in the hands of Cervelo, and their standard is not well described but is unreasonable, then there is really...

    Problem with a repair is it won't restore the resale value of the frame. So OP may be happy to ride it (no reason not to), but it won't be worth much to anyone else. That hurts OP in the pocketbook.

    Why take that attitude? No one forced Cervelo to offer the warranty Once it is in print, they need to honor it. I would file a small claims court suit. The money is in the right ball park.

    When I see a chain, I just can't help pulling it. Bad habit.

    Maybe it is just living in a dynamic, forward looking city like Houston, but I just can't believe this issue is going to stand still.

    For those who don't know what a "mohel" is, that is a person who performs the ritual circumcision as part of a celebration in the home of a Jewish family eight days after the birth of a son. So...
