    My boyfriend cracked the top tube of his Specialized this summer. Or rather, all the dudes falling down in front and on top of him in a race cracked the top tube. It was just a tiny crushed area, not...

    It is most certainly assault. Physical contact (i.e., battery) is not a required element of assault. Assault under Maryland law for example also includes "Attempting to cause serious physical injury...

    You don't need an adapter. Shimano doesn't make BB30, so to use a Shimano BB in a BB30 ready frame, you need an English threaded adapter. If you want to stick with BB30, then you have nothing to...

    If they are stripped or one is just loose, you can probably replace the insert--you might have to contact the manufacturer for a new part. I've had this issue with one of the bolt holes--not the...

    I think the biggest you can go with 110mm BCD is 38/52 from a few brands like FSA and SRAM. to go with a 39/53 you will need a new crankset with 130mm BCD.

    Also, yes, a longer chain.

    I recently saw this movie (which makes some sly Lance references) about doping (in all sports, even recreational/amateur use). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1151309/

    It still boggles my mind, but...

    I am also too long in the torso for one piece bathing suits, but I haven't had any problem with bibs. I tend to wear men's, though, for other fit reasons, so even in XS sizes, the straps fit. Newer...

    Bibs are the best! I get decent clothing prices through my team. The custom orders are also the only way I can find my size in bibs.

    I used to have non-bib winter tights, because those are easier...

    You don't need special tires in the rain, though some harder tires like Gatorskins can be a bit tough cornering in the wet. Fenders are key, though.

    Are you going to make it fixed or just single speed? If fixed, then you might want to be concerned about the direction of the rear dropouts. Frames made to have a fixed gear have horizontal dropouts...

    Not sure if your shop would have some spare Gore cables hanging around, but you can always buy a set and only install the one right now.

    Hmm.. possibly. 6wks is a long time to commit to, though I guess Sunday afternoons would be the best for me since I think racing will be pretty much over by then. Where? At Spokes?

    I think that FSA and Shimano big rings aren't compatible anymore, though I think they used to be. The inner ring may still be compatible, provided you get the right BCD size (110 or 130).

    Why not get another BB30 crankset? There are several options now that aren't FSA, such as Cannondale's proprietary cranks, SRAM, Specialized, etc. Once you put the threaded insert in there, it is a...

    If you get a full zip jersey, then wearing bibs isn't a big deal. IMO, it's much better to be able to breathe than to worry about bathroom convenience. Even my winter tights are bibs.

    If you're looking at sport cut, are you ordering men's? I think women's is only race or club.

    I'm about your size, and in Verge unisex leg and knee warmers, I wear XS.
