    Dear carleton, do you have any more retro team pursuit/time trial pictures? I have a collection of those, and you have posted some in the past that I have not come across.

    I don't really know prices. Try asking Scrod. I check the tension about twice a year with my hands by squeezing them. Not the best way, I know. But, I can feel if they are really loose.

    Thanks carleton, those are great

    evil, typically 30 dollars is a good number for both a tension and true.

    carleton,

    I know you've posted about trainers/rollers before but I had a question again about a trainer. As a gift I have about $300 to spend on a trainer for the winter. I was wondering if you or anyone you knew had input on the 1up USA trainers. Besides their website, which looks like it's straight off Geocities, they seem to have gotten good reviews and the lifetime warranty is appealing as well. It's going to be used on my road bike so compatability w/ track bike hubs is not an issue.

    Yeah, the website isn't great. But, it's weird. A lot of engineers' websites are like that. Ugly, but functional, "Why pay someone to do this?" type of thing.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the 1-Up trainer. I've never tried it myself, but I'd like to.

    I have the Kurt Kinetic Road Machine and I really like it. It gets great reviews from others, too. I even have the optional flywheel for the longer coast-down.

    Not really. There are some good ones out there. But I don't know enough to be able to recommend any.

    I always thought that the chocolate stuff was better with milk instead of water.

    Alright sorry, I was just asking because I'm in the market for a new helmet and I don't really know where to start. I kind of like Specialized and Lazer but just wanted a more experience opinion or suggestion.

    Helmets are similar to cycling shoes in that everyone is shaped/sized a bit differently. Try on various models and see which one fits the shape of your head the best and is the most comfortable for you. After that then you can think stuff like cost, color, weight, etc. Here is a review CC did awhile back

    Start at your local bike shop. Seriously. That is why they exist.

    hullo carleton...

    i am am sure i am making too big a deal of this but it looks like you may be the right (or possibly only) person for a decent answer to my question.

    i am leaning towards wrapping my new bullhorns from the stem outward. if i recall correctly...i've seen you post that you wrap this way yourself?

    i like the idea of the clean finish without tape by the stem, but am concerned about pushing against the edges of the wrap when it is done this way & the likelihood of such wear curling them up. point of information...i am pretty hard on my bar wrap, like it thin & tight, & ride lots of hours, much of it out of the saddle.

    carleton, if you do wrap from the stem out...you do it on your track or road bikes? how does it hold up on either or both? would you recommend to others that they wrap their bars this way?

    thanx...

    Yes, I wrap from the stem outward. This eliminates the need for electrical (or whatever) tape to finish off the bar tape. The bar tape is finished off with the plug.

    I use higher quality grip tape (Lizard Skins, Fizik Microtex black or grey, Specialized Roubaix, Velox) which lays down very well. I've never had a problem with it rolling up. I think it's the thicker old-school cork type tape that will do that because it's thick and not tapered at the edges. All of the tapes that I've mentioned are tapered except for the Velox tape which is unpadded and lays down pretty thin anyway.

    Whoa, so you just wrap from stem outwards and just plug it? No tape near the stem? I didn't think that worked..

    Everything you need to know about buying protein powder:
    http://scoobysworkshop.com/protein-powder/

    ON is good and readily available, but you may want to see if any of your local health food stores will sell it in bulk: I get plain NOW powder this way for $3-5/lb. It tastes like clay, so it's easy to sneak into a lot of foods. Most of the time I either add it to oatmeal or drop some in a glass of water and chug it. It's also handy for homemade meal replacement bars.
