    I don't know much about the HED Ardennes CL's but the Mavis are nice rims. My DBF has Mavic Ksyrium Elites that he has ridden very hard over the past years (well over 15,000 miles) and the bearings...

    Definitely wasn't intentional in my opinion... they crashed on a bit of a turn at speeds of 40+mph and Cavendish should really have moved up his left (like Kittel was it?) rather than his right. I...

    Maybe compact bars with shorter drops would help (as opposed to standard bars which have longer reach and a deeper drop).

    What a strange couple of days at this TdF... I was definitely disappointed not to see the big sprinters near the finish line yesterday but I'm very happy for both Kittel and Bakelants. Bakelants...

    The Clymb is also a good (invite only, but easy to get an invite to) site for good quality cycling clothing. You can also try Backcountry.

    Becky you put it perfectly with "smaller penalty for failure." I have been coasting since I was a child and I'm not sure I want to unlearn that painfully :D Actually now that I think about it, the...

    Ah that makes sense, thanks! I once read someone describing going up hills by "pulling" the handlebars towards herself (I think it was on TE?) and have found that to work for me psychologically, but...

    I was chatting with an employee at my LBS who was the state champion for the 10 mile time trial yesterday and he gave me some interesting food for thought. He was telling me that at the time of...

    Out of curiosity why the loose grip on handlebars while seated up the hills? I have a death grip on my handlebars when I'm going up hills :D

    I don't doubt that is true but at least for me with the same helmet I find that the front part digs into my head a bit in longer rides and a tiny bit more padding prevents that from happening. I'm...

    Skippyak - good point. I had a fitting for my Roubaix but I should get a general fit to see what geometry would be best for me. I would definitely get a men's frame if it was a better fit for me.

    +1 for number 4!! The great thing about riding in pairs/groups is holding everyone accountable to that. Sounds like you've had an incredible month of riding!
