    Taxing fat people

    yeah and maybe we should tax cyclists because when they wreck it can be serious. and skiers for the same reason. i sure dont want to pay for those runners joint problems. how about that guy drinking a beer over there? i wonder if he's an alcoholic? lets tax all the people that don't wear...

    Helmets that make you look good

    i recently got a catlike kompact and like it very much. it sits on my head like an octopus instead of a dead fish like my giro eclipse. its very comfortable & well ventilated. another plus i recently discovered now that the warmer weather is here is for some reason, with the catlike, more...

    been hit in the cup by foul tips plenty of times, it does its job very well, and it isn't uncomfortable. one day after you're done seeing stars you'll see the light.;)

    Weight Minimum for Bike?

    the reason i asked about the womans frame is because i was asking my LBS owner about a bike for my wife. i was wondering since her & i are about the same size, if she would be comfortable on my mans frame. he told me women tend to have longer legs and shorter torsoes than men so a womans...

    Weight Minimum for Bike?

    it wasn't just the weight of the bike i was wondering about. it was the culmination of all the other numbers that had me scratching my head. the less than 100 pounds, 34" inseam, 43cm bike, and 12lbs just didn't add up.:confused: now that i know you're female i can picture it in my mind and...

    Cannondale Six13 or Synapse?

    what is this classic geometry you speak of? i took a few minutes and looked at some of the bikes i listed in my previous post (scott, canyon, cervelo, isaac, look, felt), i picked out their "team" bikes and couldnt find any major differences in the numbers between them & the synapse. thats a...

    Cannondale Six13 or Synapse?

    i thought the thread was comparing the synapse to the six13. comparing the same sizes of the synapse & the six13 there are differences but they are minute. if one had never ridden either bike and could ride blindfolded i doubt the differences could be felt. i know i couldn't tell, just my...

    Cannondale Six13 or Synapse?

    Whenever i read posts comparing the synapse to the six13 i find it funny that some think the synapse is a comfort bike with relaxed geometry. Sure it's marketed that way but if you take the time to compare the geometry numbers on cannondales website the differences are so nominal that there...

    Can you damage your frame by storing your bike in cold temperatures?

    my synapse carbon owners manual states to protect the frame from extreme temperatures. it does not give a cold tempurature but it does give a hot tempurature ("do not store in places where the temp will exceed 66.5 degrees C/150 degrees F"). it also says to allow the bike to cool off or warm up...

    Any Christian cyclist out there?

    sure, because as we all know, the ancient greeks & romans were such great guys that all the surrounding countries gladly gave up their lands so they could be included in the cultural benefits.:p

    TT/Triath. vs. regular road bike?????

    heres a pretty good link explaining why you want or dont want a dedicated tri/tt bike compared to a road bike. its a bit long but full of good info. or you can look at this geometry PDF file from TREK comparing the TT bike to the...

    transptorting carbon-fiber frames

    the owners manual for my synapse states that while carbon fiber frames are very strong, they arent bulletproof. instead of bending like theyre metal counterparts carbon fiber frames or forks will completely break if hit hard enough and need to be replaced. it doesnt state how hard the crash...

    Drying cycle gear

    hmmm, when i take mine out of the washer and hang them to dry it only takes a couple hours and theyre dry and most of that time is for the chamois. i say just wring them out & hang them. they should dry themselves by the time work is over.
