Muscle Milk is another product that may suit your needs. I've used it in both from powder to the premixed bottles. It seems to help me recover more quickly. To me the powdered form mixed with water is more palatable than the premix and it is more portable.

Re: protein bars and whatnot. Check out bariatric food and supply sites online. Post-op weight loss surgery patients need high protein diets.

As mentioned, a protein/recovery drink is going to be your best best. The body more easily absorbs the liquid, over solids. They won't ruin your evening appetite, either. However, a light, afternoon snack is not a bad thing. Low fat chocolate milk is another option. A lot of pro triathletes drink it, post-ride.

I mix Hammer Recoverite with OJ/pineapple juice. I've never awoken sore, the following AM, regardless of what I did the day before.

My GF used to do that, too. When she kept bonking on 'em, she quit taking them. YMMV, I guess.

Many of your, commonly available, bars are going to have calories derived from sugars. However, where those sugars are derived from is very important. Look up exactly what cane juice, brown rice syrup, and sugar/cane sugar/white cane sugar (sucrose) are and how they're made. There's a huge difference between them. In short, the less processing, the better it is for you.

Lastly, go back to my post and nose around the nutritional facts and ingredient lists of the Kashi stuff. Then, go look at your favored Clif Builder bar nutritional facts and ingredient list. What you'll find is that the grams of protein to calorie ratio is very similar. You'll find that Clif markets that bar as an energy bar. Also, you'll find similar ingredients, including some of the same sweeteners as Kashi. Many of those ingredients are protein sources. I exclusively ate Clif, for 3 years. Personally, I'll take the reduced caloric intake and better taste of the Kashi products over Clif, anyday.

Hopefully, he can give me a definitive answer as to why I'm worsening, post-surgery. If I end up on an USS recumbent, I won't be able to do rides like The Cedar Cross. Only time will tell.

cane syrup is about 60% sucrose in water. it may have traces of molasses, which is just dirty sugars

brown rice syrup is 45% maltose, 3% glucose, and 52% maltotriose, with just enough water to make it liquid.... maltose is somewhere in between sucrose and glucose on the glycemic scale, its pretty much dual glucose (while cane sugar's Sucrose is a glucose bonded with a fructose which is a 'flipped' glucose).

brown sugars may taste better, but they really aren't any healthier than any other form, health food propaganda or not.

Eh? Another reason not to ride on the street



"A bus driver who used his vehicle 'like a weapon' to ram a cyclist off the road has been jailed for 17 months.
Reckless driver Gavin Hill, 29, swerved into cyclist Phillip Mead after getting into an argument at a roundabout in Bristol.
Mr Mead was flung over his handlebars and catapulted 10ft across the road. He suffered a broken leg and fractured wrist.
As he lay on the ground in agony, the driver simply straightened up the single decker bus and continued on the journey."

Yup. Can't stand revenue, sorry, speed cameras but I can't say I mind red light cameras nearly as much.

Ever since I changed the rear tire on my 29er the rear brake rotor has been dragging. Two 10 mile rides and I've had enough. I've tried adjusting the skewers and it has not helped. The rear wheel stops rotating after 2-3 revolutions when spun by hand. Any tips?

Loosen the caliper bolts. Squeeze the lever and tighten the bolts, at the same time. That should center the caliper.

Also, double-check the wheel position, again. Put the bike on the ground, release the skewer, and re-lock it. The wheel may not be in the dropout exactly right.
