    Do hills have rhythm

    Hi Steve and Vo2 and everybody it's been a while. Apart from waiting for the obvious jokes (come on I'm dying to hear them) it's a serious question. Do hills have a rhythm that is best suited to them ? I ask this question because today I climbed a hill and it felt just right. The tempo was...

    How you all doing ?

    Hi Steve,Vo2 and everyone. How are you all doing ? Hope your doing good. Vo2 a rugby thread !:D by the way the answer's England. Did you get the mess sorted out after you had your car stolen or did you spend the insurance money on a new bike. I'm still riding that bloody roadbike that you...

    disassociation

    Yesterday I went out for a ride with the usual results except one. I found myself at the top of a hill with no knowledge of getting there, (I'd been daydreaming), what astounded me was that I felt great, no shortage of breath, no ache in my legs, nothing. It was wonderful:) In work today I...

    Chainwear

    How long should a chain last ? and how can you really tell when it's time to change it ?<br /><br />The bad weather finally killed off my bottom bracket which I duly changed today, but in the process noticed the chain was loose and I remember seeing a picture where it showed if you can pull the...

    Seatstay Bolts

    Just a small question that's been running through my mind.<br /><br />What the hell are those two bolts on the seatstay' of my Mtb for ? there's one on either side about the same level as the brakes.

    Rucksacks

    I cycle either to work or home in the dark depending on the shift, and whilst I wear a brightly coloured jacket with reflective strip on it, it mostly hidden by my rucksack.<br /><br />The rucksack I have now is actually my sons, but I stole it off him because it had a flashing light on it. I...

    Cycling Etiquette

    Okay this is the deal. I ride solo all the time so I don't really know how to ride with somebody else. Yesterday I caught up with another rider and after a small chat realised he was going the same way so we rode together.<br /><br />I took the lead and after a while he did, the pace dropped...

    Chainset ?

    My Mtb has 22/32/42 chainset and to be totally honest it's virtually redundant, I live on the largest gear and I can honestly say I haven't touched the smallest gear this year .<br /><br />So the question is what should I upgrade to ? I'm tempted to get a similar set up to the road bike 30/42/52...

    66 Teeth !

    I was watching &quot;the History of the Kamikaze&quot; today and that is one crazy race that deserves it name, but what intrigued me was when they discussed what gear they were using on the front, some were using 52 which I recognize and then it started to get wild.<br /><br />Some said 58, some...
