    Your Preferred Groupset ...

    I am in the process of upgrading my components, and trying to decide if I want to stay with Shimano, or maybe go with a different setup. Lots of choices out there, many models within each of these makes. I have a chance to grab a 2010 used (3k miles) Campy Centaur 8-pc set for around $500...

    small lump inside buttock

    How is everyone? I rescently found a small hard lump deep under my right buttock, almost resting up against the sitz bone. If I press my fingers into it, I can slightly move it around and almost can pintch it with two fingers. It's not visible, and not a sore on the skin. It almost feels...

    converting shifters...

    Hello, Currently I have the 105 setup on my bike. I was wondering how difficult it would be to switch the 105 shifters (w/ outside cables) to Ultegra shifters w/ cables running under the bar tape. Thanks. -Greg

    wrinkles in Cornea/Sclera

    Hello all, I've been having some regular allergies this summer, usually sinus and some mild eye redness. This morning I woke up with a very red right eye and a bit swollen. Afer washing up and putting in some drops, it seemed a little better but still reddish. Then I noticed that when I...

    Fork stand for a trainer.

    Hey everyone, I was wondering how well (if at all) a fork stand would work with a regular trainer as opposed to rollers. In preparation for this winters hard training, I was thinking that maybe I would be better off installing some kind of fork mount/stand for a more stable workout when out...

    Proper chain cleaning

    I know that the correct way to clean everything is to take the wheel/chain/cassette off and clean everything separately, but I just don't have time/tools for it. I did a normal cleaning last week, where I washed the whole bike down, scrubbed the chain, cassette and deraileur with a good...

    Predictions..... stage-by-stage.

    I'm not sure if this is a good idea or if it will just die out, but I thought that everyone can post their top 3, top 5 or top 10 finishers of the next stages, and the closest guess will get reputation points added. I know I know, it's not $$$ but oh well...

    Squeaky Keo's ?

    Hey everyone, I have the Look Keo Sprints, and a couple of rides ago I started to get a pretty loud squeak. At first I thought it was in the crank or a crack in carbon somewhere. I narrowed it down to the front interface of the cleat that's rubbing on the nose of the pedal (side-to-side)...

    R.I.P. PRESIDENT LECH A. KACZYŃSKI

    There is no possible description of how I feel right now. Poland has suffered a huge blow, and an undescribable loss. My prayers go out to President's family especially his daughter who not only lost her father, but also her mother, and prayers for the families of the other 94 passenger's who...

    Groin numbness

    About 2 weeks ago, I started getting a numbness, tingling feeling down below, after 20 minutes on the trainer. I am very worried and concerned about this. I have been riding for a year, and on the trainer for at least 4-5 months, and it never happened before until now. I am soon getting a new...

    PowerAgent 7.4.5

    Hey everyone, I just downloaded the PA from Saris website (for free which surprised me). My question is, can I get into any of the activity data and/or view any calculations or graphs ? I don't have the PT yet, so there's nothing for me to sinc. I inputed some figures manually, but it...

    Setting goals...

    Hey everyone, I am currently 1/2 way through Friel's bible, and trying to figure out some of my goals (or goal). My ultimate goal is to get into a race, but I think that's too vague. I've looked around and found some upcoming local cat5 crits around my area next year, so I got some dates in...

    scales with BF% and MM% ???

    I just saw some Bowflex weight scales that had a body fat % muscle mass % and some other options. How accurate and reliable are they ? Is it a good investment, or should I just learn how to calculate on my own ? Thanks, -Greg

    Show your training spots...

    I would prefer out on the road, but because it's pitch black at 4:30 now, plus the weather is tumbling down, I just stay inside. This will be my sanctuary for the next couple of months.
