    Caad 7 Frame

    A bike shop close to me says they have a 2006 or 2007 (the guy didn't seem to know) Caad 7 frame for $550. I was just wondering if it was a good deal. I am looking for a frame that is a bit stiffer than the one I have now since I can actually look down while I'm riding and see my down tube and...

    How doped was David Zabriskie in 2005?

    2005- New TT record beating Lance Armstrong. ***** the yellow jersey for 4 days, and could have been many more. 2007- Comes in over 2 minutes behind on the first stage. Gets time cut on stage 11, which is a flat. Before he was cut he was 1:42:00 behind the leader.

    Time lost in TT

    I did a 2.26 mile TT last saturday. I was racing in the pro1/2/3 field with 40 guys. I came in 33rd with a time of 5:01:264. The winning time was 4:24 from a guy from Jittery Joe's pro cycling team. My question is how much time could I have lost to him due to the bike I was riding. The course...

    Specialized Mondo Pro

    I got some Mondo Pro tires the other day to use for training. One thing I noticed about them is there recominded pressure is 115- 125 psi. 115 seems a little high for what they are calling "min. recominded pressure". I was acustumed to using pressures more like 110 psi with my other tires. Whats...

    Injury; High heart rate?

    Saturday I was riding in the north Georgia mountains doing some long hard climbing. Climbed Hogpen in 36 min. Stopped a rested at the top and had a conversation with a guy on a motor cycle. Long story short I ended up hitting the ditch on the way down at 35mph. Didn't hurt me to bad since I...

    Legal enhancements

    If it takes doping to be a pro I guess I never will be. I'm not looking to kill myself. But I was wondering if anyone had any sugestion on something like vitamins I could take just to help, not cheat.

    Cat 1/2 doping

    Just how rampant is doping in the Cat 1/2 feilds. I did my fist Cat2 road race yesterday. And the guy who won I have questions about. I have known him for a while. Last year he was just a mediocre Cat3. Now this year he is one hell of a Cat2. I train with him alot and he is just stupid strong.

    I am looking into getting a new bike with a full carbon frame. I am liking the Giant road bikes, and am also starting to like the new Trek :D. But any way whats the main differnce in the TCR and TCR advanced frames? Will it be worth the extra money? I only weight 135lbs (61kg I think) so if its...

    Pedal problem

    Three times now I have pulled my foot out of the pedal during a race. Yesterday it cost me a First place finish. They are Look Keo Sprints. The first time I did it I thought it was because my cleats were getting a little old, so I reaplaced them. I also have the tension on them as high as it...

    Hours a week

    I just turned Cat4. I pretty much slammed all the Cat5 riders and would like to see Cat3 by the as soon as I can get there. My question is how many hours of training a week should I be doing to be competive in your average Cat3 race. I'm shooting for around 10- 10 1/2 now. The most I've ever...
