    12% is not that bad if you have a low gear. You should have the standard compact(50/34) and preferably a 32 tooth cog on your cassette. I run an 11/34 mtb cassette on my bike but, I only use the...

    No automobile has ever been as pretty as the Ferrari Daytona, imho. I had a chance to buy one back in 1972 (used but in great condition) but of course did not have the money. It made an...

    Both good bikes for this type activity. The Tricross has now been replaced by the Diverge, and its an excellent bike for all condition/surface riding. And unlike many other brands, even the full...

    That event has been on my bucket list for some time and I plan to be there next year. In the meantime, I will be riding Sugarloaf in a couple months (and Buckhill, etc). :D

    26 miles is certainly not a long ride, and hardly long enough to even be considered a "hard ride" unless you're running wide open the entire time. So, I'm led to think this is a pick-up issue with...

    I flatted today on mile 85 of our century - a small glass shard. Of course with my trusty CO2 and Bontrager tube, I changed the flat in about two minutes. Its the first time in about two years...

    My recommendation is to spend a year on a diet plan and get your weight to the normal range for your height. This will provide time to save money too, then buy a Trek 520 or similar. This type...

    Darn, I guess I missed this one. I've ridden most of those roads (of course you have too) but it would have been nice to ride the event. Looks like a good route. Did you ride the century or...

    And start eating a normal diet.

    Slightly off topic but, I would like to see some pictures in and around Nepal if you happen to have some (Flickr, etc). Nepal is on my bucket list but whether I will ever get there is questionable.

    I prefer lightweight rims, no rider weight limits, metal brake tracks and absolute reliability. Found all of it in Dura Ace C24 wheels.......and in spades.
