      steve reacted to matagi's post in the thread The Thread about Nothing.... with Haha Haha.
      For years, I have spectacularly failed to stay awake for any TdF broadcast. SBS on Demand is your friend. They have the full replay of Stage 1 available to view and also the 50 minute highlights package, which I am currently watching (having...

      steve reacted to Volnix's post in the thread Specialized Rocket Red Paint with Haha Haha.
      Hi! :) I've been searching about this for quite a while and cant find any info about it. Maybe because this is so new. Specialized is now has some bikes in a color they call "Rocket Red". It's not really red, more like orange. But what's...

      steve reacted to flan48's post in the thread Did You Ride Today? with Like Like.
      I envy all rides noted in this thread. I had a full tear rotator cuff repair done on January 6th. In a sling w/ abduction pillow, 24/7, for 6 weeks. Doc said I could get back on bike around 3 months post surgery. Unfortunately, I had a freak...

      I agree with Richard Nowak on his choice of soap. Washing your bike needs to be as gentle as possible. You can start with Dawn for Dishes (NON citrus) if you have grease on your bike, or if not then start with the Dawn for Dishes on a damp...

      Hi Robert. I’m sorry I didn’t see this earlier. How did the event go? How did you end up dealing with the 12 days no riding? Some quite significant physiological changes start to occur after 3 days off the bike, so you were definitely up against...

      My wife just purchased a used Cycleops Pro 300pt with a wired sensor. The sensor isn’t working and I found the wires pulled out and broken at the connector inside the rear frame. The problem is I’m not sure which wire colors on the sensor match...

      Yeah, if you're just talking about moving mass up a big hill then it's a wash where you reduce that mass. But when you consider how much more weight the average rider could drop from their body relative to their bike and if you consider cooling...

      Fat is a good insulator. Losing weight helps keep the body temperature down allowing you to work longer. Lose too much fat and you have all sorts of physical problems. At one time there was a bike builder who built 10-12 pound bikes for...

      steve reacted to Mr. Beanz's post in the thread Why do clydes avoid the climb? with Haha Haha.
      Yup! I've watched your videos. I think the best I have done is #123 out of 400. But I weigh 225 vs the other contestants weighing in at a cheesy 150! :D:p:D That was 100 miles with 10,000 ft of gain. Almost all of it on the first 62 miles up to...

      I have never found a climb I didn't like, and I've never walked one. Even when I raced I was considered a heavy rider at 155 lbs. But I was always able to give the 110 lb. guys a run on the climbs. I won our bike club climb up Mt. Greylock the...

      I know some people don't have long sustained climbs on their side of the world but here we do. I've been doing serious climbs since 1997. Still at 57, 260 pounds I'm still going at it. What really puzzles me is that going up the mountain, I see...
