    Trump, Carson Phony Candidates? Maybe To Split The Republican Vote?

    Bob ... You need to feel very guilty that you managed to achieve a station in life that would have been completely impossible in this country had you not been a Caucasian male who identifies with one version or another of Christianity. Me too. No way would we have nice homes, nice cars, and...

    My First Campagnolo Groupset Bike

    I don't have it yet - it's "ship to store" so is scheduled for delivery to the local Performance in about 3-4 days. Probably ready for pickup about Tuesday 12/15. Link to product description on the Performance website...

    Did You Ride Today?

    It's definitely something a "serious" cyclist in cold climate regions should consider as a way to keep riding during sub-freezing weather with snow and ice. Also consider studded tires and an indoor trainer to stay in the game.

    What Is Your Favorite Cartoon?

    Watching any of those requires what movie critics call "the necessary suspension of disbelief" - especially watching politicians.

    Deal Alert: Base Layer Tops

    Wool is another story. I keep intending to buy a Smartwool base layer because I love the feel of their winter thermal wool socks ... Just never got around to it yet.

    Deal Alert: Base Layer Tops

    Yup, the "[email protected] brands are a premium without necessarily offering an advantage. Cotton though is the only thing I won't wear on a ride except in really hot weather - where the right cotton jersey can be a plus. Learned that the hard way in November 2012 when I was back into cycling by...

    Deal Alert: Base Layer Tops

    UA does have the best cold protection, IMHO, for extreme cold, in their 4.0 series (they now have 5.0 which I haven't tried yet). That level of protection would be great for Ohio but overkill in So. CA weather. I have a few sets of the Russell - comfortable and good for mild cold conditions...

    How Many Miles Does It Take For Stress Relief?

    Probably no "one size fits all" answer to that. Anything under 10 stresses me out more - because it's takes as long to get ready to ride as it does to do 10 miles. Long treks 40-50 plus miles are my best stress reliever because I enjoy the "adventure" aspect of it.

    Riding In Snow

    Studded tires, wash the bike really well after each ride and use moisture displacing lubricant to help prevent rust/corrosion.

    Did You Ride Today?

    Well, I wasn't able to ride recently due to a family situation - that is over - alas a close relative passed away after a lengthy illness - woukd like to get back to it - but not tonight - 14.5 inches of snow since 7 am - but should all melt by midweek

    Cleveland Screws Up Bike Lanes

    Virtually no bike lanes in this region. Having rode in virtually every corner of Metro Detroit, the only place with a significant number of bike lanes is Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti - which makes sense given the roughly 65,000 students at the two major universities, U of M and Eastern Michigan. Other...

    Mass Shootings...

    why would any man want to dress like a woman, or worse, become one? I know, not PC, but frankly, it's revolting.

    Trump, Carson Phony Candidates? Maybe To Split The Republican Vote?

    I'm like the phone company, I don't care because I don't have. Once upon a time, oh so many years ago (2012), I was very different. I "sweated the small stuff" and worried about this and that half a world away that had no impact on my day to day life. I could be glued to the tv for hours...

    Trump, Carson Phony Candidates? Maybe To Split The Republican Vote?

    Absolutely right there pwarbi - it's just another reality game show these days - and the entire lot of them are pathetic. It's actually peaceful to not really know, not really care, and not really give a **** about any of this, which is where I am in my life. ISIS can chop heads and blow...
