      Lots of recommendations here, all seem pretty well meaning. I'll give my 2.

      For some context, I haven't been racing for the past few years because of some family issues but before that I was...

      One more perk that I use a lot is with car rental companies. I think if you rent through hertz, AAA members get a number of free or discounted services. AAA members can add car seats free of charge....

      I can't speak for anyone else but I'll tell you how I feel I was defrauded.

      -Clean diesel is actually one of the reasons I bought this car. Was I perhaps a little naive for thinking that a truly...

      Actually, you're wrong! Based on very old and very well established math, a single long line with multiple registers ("servers" in queuing theory) is roughly 3 times faster for at clearing a queue...

      Weekday midday should be good up there... unless it's a Friday, then it'll be a **** show up to Clear Creek and down AFH to Palmdale because of people commuting back and forth from Palmdale. I...

      I'm not saying that I think this post is a great idea but you're living in a vacuum. In other parts of the country, people descend for more than a few moments... I can think of at least 3 descents...

      Anybody know what the tire clearances are on some of these more race oriented bikes? I've been thinking about one as a gravel racer... I'll probably just go custom steel but just curious. I'd love it...

      Yah, 10s sounds a whole lot more realistic! When I was racing crits my 5s power was between 12-1300 watts and I weighed about 145 or so back then. But my FTP was like mid cat 3 levels!

      My FT watts per kilo is 4.47 which puts me in the lower cat 2 range. I'll be pretty happy if I can get to mid cat 2 range by my target race.

      Just a heads up, you should always ride the day before an power test, race, TT, whatever... Going into it cold will leave you way worse off. I'd do an easy day the day before with a bunch of...

      Cool! I've head good things about the stages meters, and you can put them on different bikes if you're running the same group which is really nice. Now if only Shimano would get on top of things and...

      I've never had a pair of shoes that didn't do that within a year or two... but that's because I walk around in my shoes waaaay more than I should. If you aren't walking in your shoes a lot then...

      just any 3 frames? no specific purpose or should they be all road frames? I could choose 3 frames for every type of bike I use!

      I think the Madone 5 and above have more aero profile than the 4 so if you're dead set on a trek, that may be the better route. But like everyone else said, there are other road bikes that are better...
