    FWIW, I just saw an ad for these socks that advertise a wide toe box. Altra shoes are definitely wider than they used to be, in fact they have two shoes on one last that I can actually wear. Woot! So...

    Well huh. I too had only read it in lay summaries, and when I tried to chase it down, this was the best thing I found: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1875801 which without reading the full text,...

    In humidity, arm coolers aren't any cooler than bare arms, but they ARE cooler than skin slathered with sunblock that keeps you from sweating and cooling yourself at all. If you use sunblock, I...

    I'm assuming the canvas is either coated or waxed and that's why the caution about what to use on them?

    I'll never forget the PI I had on my wrists when I did Women's Quest. The week before I'd...

    If I'm putting them on after a race, I'll just put the thigh-highs on over whatever I'm wearing, even if it's tights. Just sit on the grass or a park bench.

    Murphy's Oil Soap on a damp cloth, then "rinse" with a clean damp cloth? You want to take the oil off, so just spraying won't do anything I don't think.

    Good luck ...

    +1 on the juicer. I sold my Champion juicer years ago and now I really wish I had it back, though honestly I don't know where I'd put it. They do take a lot of counter/cabinet space.

    I don't have socks. I have one pair of pantyhose that are 30-40 mm (those are the ones that really kill my feet, don't remember the brand), one pair of the ugly white Futuro thigh-highs that are...

    If your doctor is telling you to lose weight when your BF is 20% (I would've actually guessed lower from your photos) I'd get a new doctor. Unless she's actually telling you to lose muscle, which...

    Castelli's KISS-3 chamois is very nice too, though personally their shorts are not the best fit/fabric for me. +1 on the LG Neo Power. I can't stand a thick chamois.

    We just picked 50 lbs of blueberries in two trips to the you-pick, and if I'm not careful I'll have to make another trip if I want to have enough to last the winter.

    Yeah, intensity is really key to how much you need to eat during a ride. I might eat that much on a hilly century. Are you sure you bonked, or was it something else? What were your symptoms? I always...
