Fabian Cancellara didn't get legs like these doing Spinnervals. There was a gym involved.



Unfortunately, I don't have any advice as to what type of weight training you should do. Endurance riding is not my thing.

Actually, as of right now, the Dolan DF3 is not better than my Tiemeyer. I raced it again tonight. I pulled the wheel in the dropouts EVEN with the chain tensioner engaged. I need to lay off the protein shakes.

Yeah, the Seta will be fine for street use.
