    How about not wearing bike shoes then? Plenty of people doing centuries don't clip in. Also have you had your cleats fitted to you properly? As you are not walking just address the issue at hand...

    It would be good to know what the problem is though. I just wear big shoes as I really like a bit of room. I hate shoes that really fit tight. Officially my road shoes are a mens and a size too big...

    What I found was that I over prepared and over fretted and carried too much stuff. Having done a few now I tend to strip down my seat bag and use a tiny one, only carry one tube instead of 2, ditch...

    What do parents think happens at middle school that their kids are not going to be ready for LOL? Our district shifted ages this year to put 6th graders in middles school rather than waiting until...

    I love my HR and bike data. I love my Garmin. You can find plenty of century training plans, but for sure if it is August, just work at your time in the saddle until you start a real program. As well...

    It is what it is right? We want laws to be enforced, but want to object to what we see as petty reinforcement when it isn't in our favour. I would ***** and moan and pay. Who has time to go to court....

    The older we get, the more we cling to life. I am still more fearful skiing than I am cycling though. It is not rational. I am more than irritated by my skiing limitations.

    I use hankies that I make myself from flannel, if you can find double sided quality flannel all the better. Snot rockets disgust me. People take the piss out of me for my hankie though, because I am...

    No, hence find the Aussie's forum. Most of these bikes are made in Asia and just branded anyway. A cheaper spec is probably chinese anyway, so why pay through the nose for US branding? Australia must...

    I do think stuff is way different now, they do have zion curtain stuff but not to notice in a real restaurant any more with wine etc. La Caille has such a horrible reputation that I would never take...

    I live in Utah and I am never sure what makes it a big deal? I live down the road from a big liquor store, I know not to buy beer at the grocery, and I am way too old to be part of any bar scene. It...

    Find an AUssie forum, it does not have to be for women at all, blokes are pretty useful and the bike industry is male dominated still. I am 5'3" and I won't even ride a WSD bike so don't feel limited...

    DO you get to pay through the nose for Spec in Oz? It might be worth looking at what is competitive in your local market. 1000$USD goes quite a way in the USA but not so far in Oz. KNow what you want...

    I find it very hard to get out of the Australian aisle for reds and sticky wines, I don't mind NZ Pinot Noir and US pinot grigio. But if it is red in my house, it will be Aussie. Shiraz, cab, merlot...

    Are you downloading to puter or pad etc? I can't get it to download all the way on my pad, so I do it to puter then use USB transfer to my pad

    Don't feel the need to look at cycling specifics, look at ski and running etc stuff for layering, you can layer anything over your shorts for a start, you can use running gloves or other sports...

    What is the actual grade? I Never stand and I am always happy to use my lowest gear in any hill (compact front, 12-28 back). I think steep for me is about 16% plus though, that might be lame, I...

    Well, that isn't a road bike, so it doesn't even qualify. Why WSD? What are your goals? What is bad about your old bike?

    I would try vacuuming them first, you run the risk of chasing sand in to the mechanism, so at least give it a try.
