      Over the last week or two, my bike has developed a very annoying clicking/creaking coming from, what sounds like, the crank/right crank arm. It only happens when pedaling with my right leg at the top...

      Keep it in your jersey/mount to your bike. I keep CO2 with me, but if I run out, the pump is a good backup.

      Once I get into the routine, I don't mind the trainer. It's a means to an end. During the week, I can get a few 60-90 minute workouts in and ride outside on the weekends. I don't mind cold. I like...

      Ncsumecheng, it really is amazing how much better you feel on the bike when your diet is cleaned up. It's also amazing how being on the bike a lot keeps my diet clean. Knowing I have a hard ride...

      You're dropping it shifting to the big ring up front? I'd guess the front deraileur is a bit too high. There are a bunch of youtube videos on how to adjust the FD. In my opinion, it's the most...

      Fact



      I use a spray called White Lightening to clean the chain and cassette. It blows all the crud out of the chain and does a good job extending the life. I use the gold Rock N Roll lube. If I...

      Why not just put some chain pins in your saddle bag? I keep a few in mine on the odd chance something happens. I have a small Lenzyne multi tool in there as well, which has a chain breaker...

      I'm just frustrated that this is the 3rd time this has happened this year. I know today was brutal. Frankly it was dumb just being out there. That climb up around mile 60, I could just feel the...

      Got my ass summarily kicked by the heat and humidity today. Total blow to the confidence. Felt pretty good the first 2 hours and rapidly declined. Cut it short by 25 miles: I was completely done.

      Wouldn't it be the other way around? My only issue with MTB is time. With 2 little kids, having time to drive to the trails really adds to the complexity. Most of my 'long' road rides start by 6 am

      Good luck! With 120 people, I would get as close to the front as possible. You don't want to get stuck behind the slow groups if the first 2 miles are single track.

      Back to the clothing topic: I also wash my cycling stuff with my regular laundry (not towels; those get washed separately). I even throw it all in the dryer. Haven't noticed any decreased lifespan.

      Agreed. With our 2nd, who is almost 6 months now, we did away with it completely. We just throw the diaper in a doggie bag. The genie in our daughter's room smelled horrible. So far, this system is...

      John, that is awesome!

      I did a relatively easy 50 mile loop this morning with one tough but short climb. It's 14% average and I ended up taking another 10 seconds out of it. That puts me a few...

      Totally agree. I won't get a top time on any of the heavily ridden segments, but I am happy to see my overall times dropping. On some of the bigger ones, getting a top 20 or 30 time out of 2K+ people...

      This is getting off topic, but are you doing anything to replace the fitness aspect of road cycling? Are you doing any running or swimming? You've basically gone cold-turkey since...
