Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Nothing really to say. I just didn't want this particular post to be some vapid nonsense about what wheels to buy or wasted dispelling carbon myths.


So...Yeah, 10, 000 posts.

Carry on.

Not a sample. Bdop is a true insider with good insights into the industry. His comments are quite useful. Usually.

IKR. As someone who knows the song well, that bugs me every time I see one of his posts. If the name was already taken, he should have chosen something completely different. IMO, he should be docked 3,000 posts for his infraction.

Where did he go? Surely the three or four orders he gets every day could wait for another post.

Congrats, Bob. And by the way, those alloy cassettes positively rule.

I've happy to see that BDop is posting again and that we're debating precision, accuracy, (and bias, yeah?) again.

It's going to be a banner day
