    Hi Admin hello from Dadeville AL

    Pretty much you don't update your profile, nobody can get to the user cp and the admin has been scarce to say the least. A lot of members choose to migrate over to another forum (there's a thread on this on the first page or so of bike cafe).

    Bike Products you wish were available...

    I'd like a $20 powertap(or simply enough $$$ to buy one), really, or is that too wacky?

    100 meter dash

    Well the 200 world record is something like 9 seconds, but that's with a rolling start. A standing start would probably make it pretty close, due to the logistics of accelerating a bike vs. accelerating on foot. 50 meters in a runner would probably be ahead.

    new bike

    Two things that pop into my mind: 1, Somethings rubbing that shouldn't be rubbing (probably the brakes). 2, You mentioned the different gears, it should be intuitive, but make sure your using those gears and that your spinning fast enough. And well three things, seat position does affect your...

    Evans: Broken collar bone?

    No. The deal was he's had something like 8 broken collar bones in his career, supposedly he bruised it today.
