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

It just hurt.

I kept clicking forward in the clip hoping to get to something worth watching. I was very disappointed, but glad I didn't just sit there watching the entire thing.

This guy rules. Check out this video.


He makes it 43 seconds without being completely wrong.

1:49... yikes. Also, I might be wrong on the 43 seconds. Is that REALLY the KHS triathalon specific bike? Er... triathaleen.

there was (is?) a guy with framebuilding instruction videos on youtube that basically could be evidence against him in an attempted murder trial. The frame he's making is for a relative, not himself. "this part isn't done right, but the lugs make up for it"

Very informative video. Here I thought my headsets were threadless, but now I know they're threaded because there's a small threaded bolt that holds the top caps on.

Best quote: "I wear the compression shorts"

In this one, the guy trains with his helmet on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMTF1...eature=related - disturbing at 3:33.

At the end of this, he calls himself the Cycling Tutor.

He's a "nervous nelly" in front of a camera. Triathaleen was the best.

This one is even better. Dude's on the trainer all "geared up" with his helmet on. And then you get a nice close up shot of his massive calf muscles. I love it! I subscribed to his channel.

He did....in both videos. I'd cut him some slack if he had aero bars on it, but he actually thinks drop bars = tri bike.

You have more tolerance than I -- could only stand the helmet part and I was done.

He seems to have good intentions.

Perhaps someone should direct him here so he can get schooled.
