    Do you have a bike repair stand?

    Mine is a homebuilt made of cast iron with a park tools clamp attached. I think I got the clamp second hand from a bike shop for $20 and invested less than $25 at lowes for the rest. It bolts securely to my workbench and I can clamp the bike in any position I want with a quick adjustment on...

    Fear of road bike

    I get constantly harassed by the other riders in my local club for using old school pedals with straps. My answer is always the same, "You ride your bike, I'll ride mine. Oh, and I did whip your butt on that last hill if you recall..." If your husband won't do it, take it to a LBS. They may...

    Computer problems, if you know about computers please read.

    Hmm, I'll have to poke around the MS site some more. It used to be possible to just download the executeable manually, but I've forgotten how....

    Building a bike from the ground up

    I suppose it depends on who you ask. I've built several dozen computers and 1 bike, and the bike was more difficult than the computers. With the Computer, you plug the parts in the right slot and they work. Not so with a bike, as there is a ton of fine tuning required that will make or break...

    I want plain black jerseys

    Thanks for the links folks, I see one or two good options. I've worn black before, and heat was never an issue, even in 100 degree KY weather, 100% humidity. And I'm not worried about being seen, if the car didn't see the other 30 cyclists, I was meant to be hit no matter what I'm wearing. I...

    I want plain black jerseys

    Doesn't sound so hard to find does it? I've just spent the better part of two hours looking for plain black, and couldn't find it. I did find 2-3 that are mostly black with a bit of white or grey, which is ok, but most of them were by Asso and are $150! Way more then I'm gonna spend. Anyone...

    Piece it together or buy a full bike?

    It's always better to buy the full bike. You will end up paying a more if you buy the components seperately. Waiting sucks, but you'll be better of saving up for it. There's pretty much zero chance of most new parts fitting that frame. If you buy in pieces, start with a frame.

    Anyone have the SRAM groupset yet?

    Looked at it today at a lbs, and it's pretty nice. The part I liked best is how it pulls back to the drops when you're in them, and quick shifts. Be very useful for sprints. It also seemed a little more ergo to my hands as well.

    Am I Mad???

    If you're going to put it in the garden, put it in some sort of watertight shed. Don't want to spend the money for a shed? Put it in the house/apartment. There are dozens of ways you can store it indoors without losing space. Break it down and store it in a closet. Hang it from the wall or...

    Beginner to Century Rider by August?

    Definitely doeable, just keep consistently upping your miles. If you can do 50, you can do 100, though don't expect to set any records. I know several riders in my local club who went 0-100 in the span of 2 months. Train hard and pace yourself, and you'll do it!

    CYCLING: Three Americanshave shot at Tour (Lexington Herald-Leader)

    Haha. This is my local paper. Considering they didn't even cover our local hundred race this year, I don't have a high opinion of their cycling judgement.

    First Ride Questions

    I bought a specialized allez sport today and went on my first ride in nearly 15 years. Half an hour later, I was home again. I fully expected the burning lungs and legs, that's one of the reasons I decided to ride again. However, I am wondering if I've purchased the wrong size bike. I'm 6'1...
