    Re: Warning About Cut-Outs

    I was a slug this summer, but last summer I was doing about 150 miles a week on my Julie Furtado Race Day saddle. I've used it for about three years now. I did get one saddle sore, but I haven't...

    Re: hmm

    My toes go numb if I sit at the edge of a chair, because that puts pressure on my sit bones.

    On your next ride, try standing every 10-15 minutes and see if that alleviates the problem.

    The...

    Re: saddle?

    I have a Julie Furtado Race Day saddle. It's a "unisex" saddle. I bought it because it matches my bike, and Julie Furtado rocks. (Love ain't always logical, right?)

    That's really clever! Beats the heck out of paying the $$$ for store-bought socks. (I found a pair of GoreTex socks at a thrift shop for $3 - that was pure luck!)

    Winter bottoms

    Last winter I rode with regular shorts, and a pair (or two) or tights over those. I plunked down the money for a pair of winter tights with water & wind-proof fronts & a waterproof skunk stripe up...

    Numb toes

    My toes & the balls of my feet go numb, but it doesn't just happen during cycling. I first noticed it a decade ago when I took up sea kayaking.

    Anytime the area of my sit bones is compressed, I...

    Thanks for the advice. My LBS isn't exactly local - it's a 100 miles away - but I make the trip relatively frequently.

    (There's a LBS 40 miles away, but the guy doesn't inspire confidence in...

    Hmmmm - interesting.

    The situation may be hopeless. That new Ultrega drivetrain went onto a Trek 460. The rings & cranks were replaced, but there may be only so much room on this frame to...

    I have a double ring crankset. My small ring is a 38T, which gives me more options than the 42T I had, but there's no way I'll be able to climb anything in my big (53T) ring. :(

    Derailleur chain rub

    I just upgraded to Flight Deck STI shifters and a 9-speed cogset. When I'm on the small ring, I get chain rub if I use the smallest three cogs. With downtube shifters, I would get rid of chain rub...

    Have you tried BoShield? It's a proprietary lubricant created by Boeing. A LBSG recommended it to me for for rainy weather. According to him, an employee of the Lazy B ranch was swiping little...

    I check mine before every ride. Several years ago, I invested in a floor pump and I have decided it was money well spent. It's quick & easy to check the tires, and no sweat to add air if required....

    Clipless funnies

    I've fallen over twice, both times without human witnesses. How lucky is that?

    The first time, I was riding in the Skagit Valley. I fell in the direction away from the road. Because it's a...

    I moved to the dry side a few years ago. I lived in Spokane until last May. The Centennial Trail is a roadie's dream when it's not clogged with users.
