      Does it really even matter if a car like this does or does not come in MT? So few Americans drive MT anyway, this is definitely not in the MT niche driver's hit list.

      The knocking out part was an attempt at humor. :) The century was part of a spring training series, where we had done 90+ miles the 2 previous weeks. IIRC, the ride below ended up with us averaging...

      Just pop on up to north Jersey or lower Catskills. I ride there every weekend and there are plenty of hills to climb. :)

      I must admit, when I started reading this thread, I feared you would put tri-bars onto it and make it into a fixie. I really like the way your bike is shaping up.

      Fit is the most important thing. I say, worry about fit and not so much about spending tons of money. If you like the sport, then shell out the cash. I got a Mercier Galaxy SC2 on bikesdirect.com...

      Congrats! I have the same exact bike. I got my 2014 at the end of last summer. I think I got one of the first to leave the factory. It is fantastic for long rides and a great all around bike.

      How are you guys tracking your miles and elevation? Strava? I have been uploading to Garmin periodically, but have not analyzed it. I have been logging about 170-180 miles with around 9-10K ft of...
    8. German national soccer team and their massive Boeing 747-8

      The victorious German national soccer team flew back to Germany aboard the Lufthansa 747-8, with some mildly customized "Fanhansa" livery.

      This plane is a beast. I wonder why only Lufthansa has...

      How did you get down such a Youtube video wormhole that you ended up at this video?

      Thanks for the info. So, it seems that evening before the ride nutrition is not that important, other than limiting the booze intake.

      For liquids, how much water to electrolytes to carbs do you...
    11. Let's talk pre- during- and post-ride nutrition. What is your routine?

      Hey gang.

      This season I am trying to work on maximizing my nutrition regimen. What do you guys do in terms of hydration (water & electrolytes), food (carbs, protein, vitamins), etc, the day...

      I bought the Assos bibs. Very pricey, but the chamois is incredibly comfortable. I have put about 100 miles on them since I bought them last week and they are breaking very nicely.

      Let me guess, $2M, you can't buy one - you need to be invited by Ferrari and you can only use it at their track.

      Those wheels look like 458 Italia wheels to me, not F40.

      Great to see you are ok. Crashes with cyclists can be bad, but around cars can be much worse. Like a true cyclist, you seemed to be more worried about your bike. :)

      Did you do one of the Trek...

      I plan on going Friday afternoon before the mayhem begins.

      I have done this flight out of EWR on the 757 as well. Economy Plus on the 757 ain't so bad. I did notice that UA replaced 757's on the LHR-EWR route with 767-400's. Much nicer, IMO.

      I got rear-ended in NYC a few years ago. There were police nearby and they took our info (multiple cars involved), but I don't think I went and got a police report. I just called my insurance...

      I will say I do love the sound of the GE90 engine spooling up at takeoff. Definitely one of my favorite planes.
