    Sometimes I hate riding...

    I have never experienced a "jam"...however sometimes when i am far away from home i wish that i had not gone out on my bike. After a few more miles the feeling goes away.

    Health Question: Am I sick?!

    Yeah, the fact that the stuff that i coughed up was clear told me that i didn't have a lung infection. The only time that i can remember feeling like this was in high school playing hours of broomball in the arena...and i was a heavy smoker back then. I hadn't felt this kind of lung restriction...

    Squealing brakes?

    I caught a bug between my breaks and the wheel(what are the chances) and the squealing was terrible. The bug must have left the rim sticky or something...i'll try to clean the bug bits off of it with alcohol, that sounds like a good idea. I thought that this was related and maybe interesting...

    Am I a poser or are Roadies snobs???

    I am a big fan of a combo's half mini-wave and half headnod. When i first started riding(3mos ago) i was rocking a jersey from a local bike joint and i noticed that i was getting ignored and treated oddly by the guys and gals with the nice rides. So i switched to a tight-fitting T...

    Do you use a protein supplement?

    I started riding in order to burn off extra calories, which i was consuming in order to build muscle mass for high-impact strength training with weights. I found out that my body would build more muscle and recover better from these workouts if i took a whey protien with added BCAA and vitamins...

    OLN: Is Bob Roll A Hack?

    Thanks for the support. ...and after watching a majority of the coverage of the tour on OLN, i did soften up to Bob. It was good to have some history about him, i was able to understand more of where he was coming from and i have to admit that some of his commentary was quite interesting...

    OLN: Is Bob Roll A Hack?

    Thanks for clearing that up for me, i had no idea about his credentials...i feel stupid for putting this poll up... He just reminds me of the american commentators for international soccer, they just talk about stupid stuff the whole time the event is going on and spit out useless facts and...
