No cramps at all. I feel great during the ride. It's just that I get these wicked toots. Not a problem when I'm riding with the boys, but chicks don't like that. I mean, they like it when I'm at the front of the paceline cuz I'm big and can break wind big time, but...

I don't think I drink enough milk for that to be a problem. Like, I can be out all day on a century for example, where I drink lots of water and gatorade - no milk products at all - and blast up a storm. Maybe it's just the way I'm built...
