    What is the best cycling equipment for beginners?

    I agree about comfort. Get a decent saddle. Maybe inexpensive bike shorts. Be sure you enjoy and handle being comfortable on the saddle. If not you will have no desire to ride. For the record I'm riding a $25 saddle . Charge Spoon saddle on ebay. Fits me great might not like it...

    Can you share with me your first riding experience?

    Not my first ride, but my wife's. Years ago, friends and I started on hybrids. We busted our arses to do a 12 mile stretch, taking turns at the front, we made the stretch in 50 minutes. We were so proud. We ended up improving some but I got a bike for my wife as well about a year later...

    Rear disc wheel

    500 ft over 12 miles is hardly any climbing at all. I wouldn't think choosing either wheel would make a difference. If you think so, maybe you'd be better off working on your climbing.

    1999 Cannondale R2000

    $300........I still ride my 1998 Cad3. Freaking awesome bike. I've replaced my ultegra with Dura Ace and built my own wheels. I have to say my Cannondale looks much nicer but I'd be lucky to get 500 for it. Wouldn't be in my best interest to sell it as it's worth much more to me. But again...

    Big Fish Story Guy at Work

    So I started a new job way cool. I ran into a guy who started talking bikes. Old MTB but yet likes to ride. I can respect that. We had a good chat. Turns out I'm a little more involved than he is. But he brings up a friend in another department who talks bikes really often. So he...

    does Ride-A-Lot have woman boobies?

    I actually like it a little jiggle myself. Those fake boobies are too stiff.
