    We have a 2003 Speedster with a WoundUp carbon fork. I really like a carbon fork. Our Speedster for sure has the Reynolds tubing. It is odd that they have different specs in different places for the...

    Good tight bike shorts are the thing. They should take a little bit of effort to get into. No underclothing! After you get settled on the saddle, reach down into the shorts and pull everything up,...

    Whether you have a mirror or not, always look back before turning left, moving into the lane, or changing lanes. I like being able to scan behind me by turning my head, but to each his own.

    Yes, I could. CK headsets seal out dirt and water. I went through 3 cheapie headsets before I put on a CK about 10 years ago. No trouble since. Caveat: I ride in the rain a lot and roads in my area...

    I don't think even bright colored jerseys are good enough, hence my use of bright blinkies for and aft in daytime. Next time you are on a group ride and the bikes behind you are a ways back, glance...

    Possibly bursitis, possibly tendinitis, possibly just a muscle tweak. Riding too much, too soon could be a cause. Try riding shorter distances more frequently. Pushing too hard on the pedals rather...

    It's probably an inflamed bursa, hence bursitis. That's why rolling works - it reduces the inflammation. Ibuprofen helps, too. In fact, if ibuprofen helps, you might assume it's an inflammation. I...

    That is a little odd. Well, more than a little. I've never lost very much weight on a ride, even hot double centuries. 6 lbs. is three quarts. Since most of us will have between 5 and 6 liters of...

    Best tires I've run in the wet have been the Michelin PRO4 Endurance and the Schwalbe Ultremo ZX. I see that Schwalbe no longer makes that tire - now it's the Schwalbe One, of which I've heard very...

    Same guy blathers about target fixation and also salmons.

    Not having a bright blinkie at night is massively dangerous. Not having one in the daytime is dangerous, too. I run a Dinotte 300R...

    We put our tandem in the back of our Subaru Imprezza. Fold-down seats. 2 singles works, too.

    Cramping was probably just overuse. I just did a 60 mile/2600' tandem ride in 3:45 and only drank one bottle of liquid food, about 750 calories, carbs/protein 7:1. No water other than that. Temps...

    I don't carry a tool: never broke a spoke, even touring on cobbles on our tandem. It's all in the wheel build. I do carry 2 Fiberfix spokes though, just in case.

    As the studies linked to in that thread pointed out, in most folks the VMO is too weak and a way to strengthen it is to pedal toes out. You have the opposite and more easily remediable problem - your...

    I think that's a great way to look at it. If we look at a modern high-end restaurant presentation, we see an elegant arrangement of a rather small amount of food on a large plate. It can be complex,...
