Gravel bike. The Cannondale has a 46/30 crankset, so it will go low combined with the 11-34 cassette. You won't be flying on it, but I don't think that will be much of an issue.

Yes, that one. Every exercise is awesome. There's also a GCN video from when it was new with some of the other exercises I mentioned.

I do all of those exercises that don't require equipment with...

I'm in the Navy and we have a semiannual fitness test. We can ride an exercise bike for the cardio portion (so I do). It's twelve minutes and the scoring is basically a W/kg test.

We also do two...

I wish the diatribe against carbohydrates would just stop. You don't need to, and probably shouldn't, cut carbs and only eat protein and fat. Carbohydrates are a great source of ready energy, foods...

I have a Domane SL5 in black/red. I also like GCN, on YouTube. Their standard kit colors are black/red/white. Perfect! So I bought some from their...

I don't think I've ever seen a study that actually shows if or how much more power you can transfer to the pedals using clipless pedals versus anything else.

How, in the age of Google, do you not know of a form of exercise that burns more than 600 kcal/hour? I mean, just look at the name of this forum for starters.

But I'll add: rowing, jogging (even...

That's a very pretty color.

My favorite bike of all time was a Bianchi Boardwalk hybrid in blue and white.

I did a ride two days ago on a flat, wind-sheltered packed dirt path (Augusta, GA Canal). There's a Strava segment that encompasses most of the up and back on the trail. It's about 16 km total...

The black/orange are my high school colors. I like that.

It's also probably really expensive. I like that as it means I won't have any incentive to buy it!

If they burned more calories than they consumed then (barring water retention) they would lose weight. It's not scientifically possible for any other outcome to occur. If they neither gained nor lost...

It isn't apples to oranges. Team Pursuit is something Wiggins actually competed in at the Olympics. In 2016. And he won gold. In World Record time. It's a four minute bike race and he was literally...

Wiggins (not Wiggans) is 39 and retired. So perhaps you could find 6 U23 riders that could ALL beat him in a 5 min race. But probably not. And if these kids are so hot why aren't they lighting things...

40 miles today. Took me 2 hours and 13 seconds. I did it all in one go with no stopping, which for me is the most I've done without stopping in about 30 years. 1050 feet of climb, so it was mostly...

I'm a big fan of hybrid bikes.

I have familiarity with Trek bikes (because I shopped for and bought one) and think the FX3 and 4 are both good bikes in your price range.

We pedal using muscles so when people talk about "pedaling in circles" and "pedaling...
