    I bought a Spiuk a few months ago, it's really comfy plus it has mesh in the Vents to keep the Bugs out :)

    Going up hills, Do you Spin or Mash ?

    I'm not a fast Climber by any means, but I've learned some things over the past few years that have helped a lot...I have a fave Climb which is around 9% which I use for repeats and this is the way I do it.. 1. Treat the first half of the Climb like it's the second half, take it easy, spin (+/-...

    What was your best upgrade?

    A light & Motion ARC front light....I can now ride my Bike at night too...any upgrade that allows one to ride more and indeed ride safer has to be in the top 3 :D

    First fall using clipless..

    Check the torque on your cleat screws occasionally, I've almost "Clowned down" twice because mine got loose...you have to twist your foot MUCH further to unclip with loose Cleats... :eek:

    Riding in Traffic

    I ride to and from work most Days so I'm used to Traffic, so weekends it's nice to hit the Bike Paths as long as they're not too over populated with Families with Kids...they can be just as hazardous sometimes :mad:

    Anyobdy tried the Powerbreathe?

    When I'm struggling, eg: doing a long hard climb, I concentrate on exhaling as much as possible...inhaling takes care of itself, believe me.... Apparently, exhaling as much as possible leaves more volume in the lungs for more Oxygen when inhaling?? I'm no expert but it seems to work for me ;)

    Top 100 Comedians of all time :

    Apart from Spike I wasn't too keen on any of the above...Python makes me cringe these Days although they were funny in the 70's....IMHO anyway.

    Apple iPhone is now cycling equipment

    That's true, I never even thought about interface, that's another advantage...my Car is ipod compatible, it works through the head unit, so maybe the iphone can be plugged into the Car too?? And it's bluetooth compatible too, right? The more I think about it the more I think I'll wait for the...
