anyways, your toe shouldn't be pointed down at the bottom of the stroke, if anything, your heel should be down a bit.

No, I mean if you're wearing some sort of footwear where you either don't want to or can't use the toeclips, you can just use the other side of the pedal. My clown shoes don't seem to fit in these:

So I've been putting around on this for a year or so. Got really serious last February about weight loss and have dropped 35 lbs since then. My legs are absolutely ripped now. Did my first century a couple weekends ago. I love cycling.

You are not supposed to use the other side of the pedal except for starting and stopping. When that toe clip is hanging up side down, take a look at it. If it hooks something you are going down hard.

That thread is a little slow to take off here.

Anyway, I've got a bare frame I need to build up.
I've looked around a little and have been pretty surprised at the cost of a new component set.
Had someone suggest buying a complete bike from one of the cheap online place and using the components off of that. Not a bad idea.

Any other ideas?

ebay?

CL?

I've pieced together frames from both sources. Takes longer.

The 'buy a Motobecane and sell the frame thing' isn't a bad idea either. Recoup some of the costs. Prolly not much, so ya gotta pencil it out.

Finally got back out on the bike last night. About an hour getting used by the hills here near the hotel in Mukilteo. :lol3

Short Ride

Tonight we hit the Snohomish river trail, (probably spelled that wrong) and maybe get in some good mileage and spinning.

I got up early and ran a few miles this morning. Ran last Wednesday, too.

Harder on me than biking, and much less fun. But it's way easier to bring along running shoes on a business trip, and better than being a total slug.

+1 on that. I had been doing some running on the treadmill earlier this winter and spring. The pounding my knees took even on the bouncy treadmill was tough at times.

Once the weather broke I was talked into shipping my bike up on the plane. I love having my bike here, and the hotel provide our group a storage closet.:clap

Trail running = mo bettah.
