    1. That isn't a problem since you need only use sealed bearings like you do in most of a bicycle's bearings. 2. That does appear to be a problem without a solution. Though perhaps a carbon fiber flat plate backing would be effective. 3. Those...

    To make another comment about CampyBob's Cat 2 friend making 250 watts average at a heart rate of 150 bpm: That impresses the hell out of me because he did that with a heart rate normally associated with a relatively fast sport ride. To me this...

    The hell you say! A Mack Truck could find a draft behind you.

    So does that mean that your ”famously long and hard winters” statement was to be read with an unwritten ”compared to California”? QUOTE="cyclintom, post: 3845197, member: 224138"] If you see that as anything else than a hard winter one has to...

  5. cyclintom replied to the thread Cf aero wheels.

    While you're sleeping, I would like to repeat for actual rider's benefits the good service I've had with the cheap all carbon CLINCHER wheelsets from China. Now if you go through the videos you find people that have put 12,000 km on theirs with...

    New discoveries. I don't know if you remember it with the others making every possible attempt to change this thread from a warning about the dangers of the full carbon TUBELESS rims delaminating with almost no pressure into the Heckle and Jeckle...

    I'm sure that Andrew has the answer but he has to know how many speeds since the distance between rings is predicated on the width of the chain. And since the 6 speed they have been growing progressively narrower.

    I was under the impression that you lived in California. There is NO snow on the Sierra Nevada up to 3,000 meters and higher except in a very exceptional year. Seven degrees C would be considered very cold here from 1,000 meters all the way down...

    Sure it does but what in the hell do Scriptures matter to the Pope?

    When I was there in July in what, 1998 or 1999, my wife and I took a train from Paris to somewhere or other in Switzerland and there was snow on the peaks. That was after the end of the Tour at the end of July. Looking at the climate reports to...

    Come on, you have to be more informative than that.

    Now I notice that as per usual PansyBob is saving up to give us a blast about that fantastic savings of having every bearing in your bike changed over to ceramic while at the same time denying greater savings of rolling resistance of tubeless...

  13. cyclintom replied to the thread Bickering.

    Well, I agree with you that a Pope decreeing that you have to be Catholic to be saved is what caused the reformation. But one thing that the Catholic church has with most of the rest do not is that having confession and true contrition absolves...

    OK, I looked all of this up. I cannot find anything biographical about Jean Nuttli but I will say this - his records were set a decade and a half before Zwift was invented. So I have to wonder since what the numbers appear to be saying is that he...

  15. cyclintom replied to the thread Did You Ride Today?.

    I did a 47 mile ride that has about 2200 feet of climbing. None of it is real steep but it is all steep enough to be called climbing. Third ride after five weeks off and did the ride in five hours with a little over an hour stop for brunch. The...
