    Clothing Question

    My received a Discovery Channel jersey for my 50th Birthday today, and I was wondering about where I could buy the matching bib shorts. I know, I'm being a poser. I usually don't wear pro team gear but it is a gift, and I promise not to look too embarrassing! So, does anyone know where I...

    Heart Rate Question

    I am trying to understand something regarding my heartrate while using a resistance trainer. I can, while riding on the rode, ride comforably with my heartrate at 145-155. My max is around 170. I ride short hills around 165. I also run and my HR is around 150-155 while running and can get it to...

    Head Sweat

    I happen to sweat a LOT from my head. Did I say a LOT? What I meant to say was, a LOT. Using a glove works, it just means that I have to do it about every 10 seconds. Have to remove my eye protection and put it back on. Gets old when you're trying to ride fast or in a pack. So I know about using...

    Head Sweat

    I guess I really don't rub my eyes but I don't go out of my way to avoid it either. There is no burning or any other complications when using this method. I still get some sweating from my head but it's not even close to how much I had to deal with before.

    Head Sweat

    I have found something that aleviates about 70% of the sweat I normally create, which goes right into my eyes. I am using Mitchum Un-Scented anti-perspirant gel, which I apply to my forehead area. No burning or other issues. Yes, I've tried all of the wonder headbands. This really works...

    Guy seeks input on shorts

    Well, I did buy a pair of red Castelli bibs and they do everything they are advertised to do. I don't wear them when I expect to be doing any walking or standing on a podium (never). No one needs to be subjected to that. My girlfriend likes the way I fill out cycling shorts, but she does giggle...

    signaling support of a front flat

    Everything on the rear wheel is right hand and everything on the front wheel is the left. They don't reverse the brake levers in Europe, look at some racing pictures. I have seen a couple of riders in over 20 years of riding and racing that switch the brake levers. If that doesn't convince...

    Don't you feel bad for joggers?

    I enjoy running. I like what it does for my mid section. No matter how much I ride, it doesn't help shrink the stomach area. But I do get some injuries from doing it. Probably because I'm starting to age. I like that you can get a good workout in a shorter period of time. Also, when...

    Does anyone else do this???

    I do it......Often disappointed to find that it's a girl on a cruiser. Just kidding. I just use that jersey up the road to 1) Give me some incentive to work harder, 2) See if I know the person, 3) Maybe find someone to fight the headwind with. I am not under any illusion that if I catch...

    Buying gloves and a helmet, would like advice

    The helmet choice is fine and so are the gloves. But, if you are a new rider and can ride 30 -35 mph, you should turn pro tomorrow. Or buy a cycling computer. Such an optimist!!!!! :)

    You should be able to find it in any shop that sells Mavic wheels. That's what I did.

    Track Standing on a Roadie

    I know how to do it but I just can't do it well at all. For a few seconds I look OK but after that it starts looking messy. I have a friend who can do it one handed.
