    new bike - Fuji Track Pro or Felt TK2

    I wound up getting a 2006 Fuji Track Pro. It is heaps lighter than my old steel frame and appears to be faster (well it is red!). Thanks to being last year's model it was $400 cheaper. Always a bonus.

    new bike - Fuji Track Pro or Felt TK2

    Learsport Road Bikes

    I bought a Lear8000 around 18 months ago. I have upgraded some of the components. It seems to be performing fine. The only thing I need checked out is the headset (think it rattles ever so slightly, but a cursory check does not show it to be loose). Cheers P

    Ta. It's now been upgraded to a dura ace drive system, carbon fibre seat post, carbon SLR saddle and tubular wh7701 wheels. It performed really well in C grade. I'm not going so well in B grade with it due to the motor needing tuning!

    I recently attended a speach on cycling, and the benifits of massages were mentioned. What are the benifits of massages. How often should I get massaged and is there any downside. Cheers

    How do you tackle a hill?

    I all depends on the hill - short = power over the top out of the saddle and push on down the other side. Long hill - mainly saddle.
