    Dunno what your price range is, but I just bought a Cycleops 300 and it's great. I specifically wanted a drop-bar riding position rather than a time-trial setup (although it would be even better if...

    If the ice is for something like your knees and not for drinking, you could pack a few chemical one-use cold packs in your drop bags; I don't know if they're available in France but you should be...

    I prefer clear in the dark as well, although I like amber for twillight commutes or rainy-day rides. I need actual-grey on sunny days for all day rides or I'll get a headache.

    Do you have a plan for getting home if you can't continue at the midpoint? And will you be put off from trying again if you either fail to finish or finish outside the time limit?

    If the answer...

    Another vote for Voler -- they're made in the USA, if that matters, and have a fairly wide size range including larger women's sizes, which if this is a community-type group rather than an all-racer...

    Nice! I do, in fact, have tires that could deal with that. I was up on the North Shore this weekend as well, but I did *gasp* drive out past some of the city bits -- there was a 200k brevet out of...

    Most of what you're overcoming on flat ground is air resistance. That's influenced by your shape/how low in the drops you can get/etc, but weight has little to do with it (yes, bulk will make you a...

    Lower back pain can also result from a lack of core strength -- work on that and it'll help. And body position is different while climbing and can exacerbate that.

    Another thing that may differ from the childhood bike of memory: the saddle.

    I still have my teenage bike; it's my city beater now. Its old saddle wore out a while back, and I put on the same...

    I did this ride last year as my first night brevet -- it's flat, it's fast, it's fun. Most of it is suburban enough that there's a fair bit of ambient light, too. You'll probably learn that some...

    Actually, if you read the update, the initial unit was faulty. The replacement will shut off if one attempts to charge it when it's all the way charged already, but if one doesn't attempt that, it's...

    Yeah. On the map screen, while recording and navigating with tones on and a 15-second backlight timeout, my Touring will definitely do 8 hours, probably 10 if letting it go all the way to zero.

    That intersection is less than a mile from my house; it's funny to see it as part of a trip report. It can be a mess to turn left there with the angled tracks in the middle of it and no stop signs,...

    Yeah, I think the second one's going to go back after the 400K this weekend. I'll do what I did on the 300k -- run it down until it freaks out, then navigate the old fashioned way with it off and...
