If you have been saying "I should," just do it already!

I'll never use safety pins to put on my busted up neoprene over-booties again!!


I've been saying that for longer'n 10 years.

I'm in Tucson, so it'll keep for a bit.

thank goodness we have the benefit of living in the future. now every punk sales kid worth his minimum wage knows you can't sprint on that bike! and any certified bike fitter would quickly and confidently 'correct' his riding position

I love mine also, they are heavy but warm feet are worth it.

Photo Fucking Finish:



I'm 526, that finish tied me with the guy just in front of me for 4th place overall in the championship. Since this was the championship event, it was the tie breaker putting me 5th for the event and the championship. What a battle, wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm sooo out of shape not having been on my bike in a couple of months. My buddies kicked the shit out of me on nice technical ride today, but it was good to get out on a nice day here.

Did anyone here ride the Tour de Foothills yesterday? Nice ride, great weather, but the route.... too many stoplights. On the plus side drivers were generally courteous. There were some wicked climbs and the rest stops had a lot of fuel.

You know, that's a myth - you should order the "right" size, not automatically size up. I wear a 44.5 Lake mountain shoe, I ordered these in a 45 and they're perfect, absolutely perfect. I can't imagine wearing really thick socks in them, my foot would melt! I wore my midweight smartwool cycling socks in them twice now, and on the second ride when it got close to 40 degrees, I was borderline too warm.

At least you didn't lose to the dork on the mountain bike with his number pinned upside down.

You're too manly to post a photo of yourself in pink legwarmers?

KUDOS to Askel for getting his sprint on! Great job.

We usually consider it cheating to run a mountain bike, as most of us are faster on them.
