for fatter hybrid bike tires, I took my first ride on these hyper radonneurs in 700x32, replacing Nimbus 700x35 (and I had Nimbus Amradillo 700x38 on my homebrew bike before that). They feel much faster and not as mushy, even tho the pressure (70 psi) was about the same...

I and took them for a brisk 15 mile loop. was riding a good 3-4 MPH faster than I was a few weeks ago on this same loop, mostly 16-18mph indicated on my bikemeter.

oh yeah, I have to reset my bike meter for the smaller tires. hmmmmm.

In house/apartment storage ideas??

I have three motorcycles, but they take up all the space I have in my shed. No garage sadly.

I have a spare bedroom, affectionately named the " junk room", which serves as tool storage, motorcycle gear and parts storage, and occasional work shop. That is where I keep the new mountain bike as well.

It is a bit of a PIA to wheel it in and out every time I need more space in there.

Any good storage ideas/gizmo's? pics/links appreciated.

seriously?
there are so many options that you're going to have to narrow it down... ranging from the lowly bike hook


to your basic wheel-around wheel stand


to the wall-mounted one-wheel rack to hang it on (though this means it sticks out into the room)


to the hanging hoist


to the floor-ceiling rack


to a fancy overhead hanging dealio


to a sorta' tuneup stand that doubles as a 2-bike rack


and that's all just part of what you might find at one place.

all depends on where you have the space (floor, wall or ceiling), and if you can drill into walls, etc.

I use wall hooks and it saves a lot of room.

Wink Participated in my first race this weekend.

I was at Santos this Sunday while they were having the mountain bike races, the last of which started at 11:30 AM. By 1:00PM, people were telling the the races were over, so I ventured onto the trails which had been designated as part of the course. Not long after that, I spotted a group of female riders ahead, all with number plates on their bikes. I figured they were just doing a 'cool down' ride or something, so I picked up speed and got right behind them. A couple of miles into the ride, I asked the woman in front of me when the race ended. "It hasn't ended!", she shouted back. Realizing I was in the middle of a race, I veered off at the first junction and made it back to the trail head without further incident.

They didn't pull over for you

Don't they know who YOU are

You should've yelled "STRAVA!".

Apparently not. I really need to wear my 'KOM' T-shirt from now on.

I tried that on one trail, but they didn't move out of my way! Unbelievable. That cost me at least 10 seconds on the leader board.

BTW, Strava King, Donnie Harries, won 3rd place in the State Championship. Just thought I'd mention that for all you Strava haters.

Hey fellas!

So here's the deal, I'm fat and I miss being not fat....

The background:
Did tri's for two years. Sprint and Olympic. Did some bigger rides too (Flint Hills Death Ride). Then had a kid and gained 30lbs.

The plan:
Use my trainer and road bike during nap time!!! Melt fat, build the engine.

My question:
I really need a structured plan for this. I don't do well if I don't have a plan to stick to!
DOES ANYONE HAVE A GOOD INTERVAL PLAN I COULD USE FOR OFF SEASON CYCLING?

Thanks guys. :

Sent from my fat thumbs on a small touch screen.
