    Pedals? Shoes? Not sure on this one...

    Check your bike fit. Good luck.

    Bombshell - Rasmussen will not start tour tomorrow... what else is new!

    IMHO, I think the best way to end this year's tdf is to just not continue. What point is it to continue if after a few days another rider will test positive. Better to end it now, while the tour has a little more dignity left. Damn, I woke up 3:30AM PST just to watch the last mountain stage. As...

    Becoming more comfortable in drops...

    Situps and crunches for the abs and to balance it out, back extensions for the back.

    Transmission icon in receiver blinking

    I just replaced the batteries last night and quite frankly it was very easy and the plastic cover, can be opened by hand, just use a rubber grip. Just make sure when replacing it, put grease on the o-rings so that it would make a tight seal. Thought I'd share this one! Cheers!

    Transmission icon in receiver blinking

    It will be my first time riding it, so until I have experienced it myself, I dont believe its steep! :eek: :D :) I ride Mt Diablo 3x a week and they say if you are comfortable going up this hill, everything else will be easy! As they say, "we'll soon find out!"

    Transmission icon in receiver blinking

    When opening the hub for PT SL, does anyone know what kind of wrench I can use? I read the manual that it recommends a spanner wrench? Pardon the ignorance, but I've never seen one! :eek: Cheers!

    Hi all PT users, As what the subject says, is this time to change the battery of the receiver? or the hub? Or both? I have a ride this Sunday on the TOC's category 1 Sierra Road, I dont want it to be dying out on me! Thanks!

    Can a 300PT get me up Mt. Diablo <1:00?

    I live just a stone's throw away from Mt Diablo and I have to say since I got my PT late last summer, I have tested my power output, only from Northgate to the Ranger Junction Station (roughly 6.5miles, 8%-12% avg grade), and this route is hella hard if compared to the other side, which is...

    Winter's gone! How much winter weight did you gain?

    At the start of winter, I weighed 155lbs and actually lost 5lbs to take me to 150lbs now. Only on moderate training but a lot of discipline in the eating department. Trying to lose 2-3lbs more to really be where I should be by peak of summer.

    Look to Speedplay - How far should the seat height be lowered?

    The look version I have is CX6 and I'll be replacing it with a Zero. Thanks!

    Look to Speedplay - How far should the seat height be lowered?

    Hi all, I just want to ask anyone who has the chance to go from Look pedals to Speedplay. I'm currently using classic Look, so how far should the seat be lowered if I use Speedplay pedals (Zero)? Thanks!

    Zipp 303's with PT SL as everyday wheel ??

    If your budget allows it. I have a 404 with PT SL on it and I use it as my everday wheel. Everyday wheel, meaning, on group rides, race, training rides, but definitely not for commuting!
