    with the new vBulletin version they could have fixed the 4,294,967,295 fault.
  2. Bikes, Frames and Forks
    I have a 55 Tommasini Carbo Light, I'm looking to add a Colnago C-50. There is a 55cm C50 on ebay and was wondering if the two different bikes could get a simular fit? Thanks Jim

    Doing my first TT this weekend and I thought there was a whole chapter in the TCTP book dedicated to this type of race but I just looked and don't see anything. I'm planning to ride a couple BPM below my heartrate LT and keep at about an 85-90 cadence. I will also be racing with my powertap...
  4. Hot Deals
    Hi! I'm going on holiday to Florida this summer, and I'm considering purchasing a new bike, and at least some bike gear. The rumor has it that the prices in the states are much lower than the prices we have here in Norway. Does anyone here know of any stores in Miami/fort lauderdale area that...
  5. The Doping Forum
    The reality is that the UCI lost total control of the peloton, you had to dope to compete, not just to win. Rather than go after the individuals for doping we should be recognizing the guilty party are the ones who were in charge of this mess. Taking pay-off's just adds insult to injury. They...

    Does the black, PD-R670 scratch up easily? How about the identical, dark-finished version PD-6700? And how about with the PD-6620 pedals?

    I have to have one on Friday. Anyone here had one? Any suggestions on when I might be able to get back on the bike? I know I'll be advised by the Docs on the day but just trying to plan.
  8. General Cycling Discussion
    Oh there is a correlation. I promise. Just not the one you're expecting. It seems that far too many cyclists are horribly unprepared for roadside mechanicals - even flats. I don't expect everyone to be able to true a wheel or repair carbon. I'm talking about adjusting a derailleur or changing...

  12. Midwest
    I'm headed to Des Moines for a wedding in late June and was wondering if there are any bike shops downtown that rent. I'm staying at the Marriott at Grand and 7th. Any other relevant info would be great - weather, routes, etc. Thanks in advance.
  13. Coaching
    I just tried for the first time using honey instead of gels. Maybe it was something else but I sure seemed to get a real kick from the honey. I used a mix of honey, blackstrap molasses, and sea salt. Just curious if this has been discussed previously and if there was a consensus. I'm planning on...
  14. Pro Cycling - Tour de France
    Amazing result at the Danish tour! IIRC he was a cat 2 last year which makes the result more amazing for some reason. I simply can not fathom the dedication and time these guys devote to the sport. There is no way I could ever do what these guys do.
  15. Components, Wrenching
    I'm new to biking and I just bought my first road bike (previously had a mtb). My main reason for switching to a road bike was because I saw that it was easier to get up hills. With hills being my main concern I'm left wondering which is better to have: a triple or compact crankset? All the...
