    I totally agree...though this guy lives in a community of about 3k people. Everyone knows him (and there has been an awful lot of talk to the effect of no surprise that he was responsible or that he...

    I get that...but there's currently so little incentive for motorists to exercise caution around cyclists. Because they can kill someone with their car and face FAR less time behind bars than they...

    Oh, yeah, West MI snow conditions are all over the map. I suspect I'd still be happy with no wax.

    This is the thing that gives me pause. We have a few groomed skate trails, but probably 80% of what we have around here are set up for classic. And there are parks without trails (and beaches) that...

    Wow, how did I not know about this 36 page thread before now?!

    Anyhow, I'd love to pick all y'all's brains about XC skiing. As a pre-teen I had a nice pair of skis. My entire family was...

    All of the articles floating around pretty much say nothing of substance. Of course the defense attny specializes in hit-and-run and is trying to make a case that country roads without formal bike...

    I'll be headed to our shop ride in a couple of hours. I'm hoping that will help knock me out of the funk. I've been angry today. Apparently the motorist contacted an attorney and has turned...
  8. I've never been so afraid to ride on the road

    Yesterday we suffered the tragic loss of a rider during the ODRAM ride. I've completed this ride 3x, myself, and am one of its organizers. I was not riding this year. But the first 2 responders to...

    My favorite is the northern half...on the eastern side, where there is less traffic and some really pretty rolling hills, prairie. BTW, I grew up in Sister Bay and graduated from Gibraltar HS in...

    Is this woman insane in the most truest sense?! I have 2 friends pedaling across the US right now...they're planning for it to take 3ish months. And this woman is pedaling against typical wind...

    I really like it. I busted my right wrist mountain biking 2 years ago, so by the end of really long rides (like centuries and beyond) I tend to lose a lot of hand strength for shifting my rear...

    This is precisely my experience on my Carbon road bike vs. my Ti CX bike with lightweight wheels and slick tires. There's still probably a 4# difference. It doesn't seem like much, but it's...

    I really didn't ride any others. I'd had a Cdale Synapse in the same size for a year and was desperate to switch from aluminum to carbon (LOTS of rough, chip-sealed roads around here). I also...

    I have, but I'm under the impression that they'd not be something that could simply be swapped on and off easily -- and I still use my road bike for paceline/group rides (which I do 2-3x/week). Even...

    I definitely have several places I can improve. Weight and figuring out how to make my ride position comfortably aero for the bulk of the bike leg (which is tough with drop bars and a bum right...

    As a runner I find this tendency seems much more common of the older crowd. So I wonder if target fixation becomes more of an issue as one ages, for some reason. Or the older folk in ginormous...

    And the more I read around, the more I keep seeing owners and reviewers raving about the comfort of the BMC TM02. Sounds like the positioning is especially adjustable.

    Oh, I'm definitely not expecting 3.5mph, but most people tell me that 2-3mph vs similar effort on a road bike is pretty expected. Frequently in these races I do (which are generally not big -- for...

    Yeah, no real way to try one...our LBS doesn't really do much with TT bikes. They have a couple of BMC and Bianchi in stock, but too big for me. But we can get a killer deal, because we're...

    Which TT bike seems like the better buy?

    I've been doing sprint and olympic distance dus for several years...quite possibly my favorite way of combining my 2 sports. I can hold my own on the bike and it's definitely my stronger leg, but...

    One thing I learned with SMP saddles is that they have a rider's weight a bit further forward (and angled in) on the "sit bones" than most other saddles. I went through developing new sit bone...
