Hi there guys and gals,
Found your forum while browsing TDF stuff. Your Code word of the day post is what brought me here. I did some browsing and thought I'd sign up. I'm an experienced beginner. I was riding 20-30 miles a day in 2000 and then had a pretty bad motorcycle accident (I'm fine now) and just started riding again. I own a Bianchi Campione and a Trek 820. Currently I'm riding around 45-60 miles a week but am steadily increasing that distance again. I live in a small suburb southwest of Chicago. I'm 34 years old and a proud father of 3 boys, ages 7, 3, and 2.

Nice to meet you all

Chris

Welcome. Since I sold my 5200 I recently changed my screen name, but I have been here for better than a year. Overall a good group of people here and I have learned a lot.

Of the things I have learned, here are the top 2:

1.) Home Brew is a mixture of oil and mineral spirits which works well as a chain lube.
2.) Posts relating to "What is your average speed?" are not well received as there are too many variables and lend themselves to bravado.

Add to the list anything regarding-
-rotational weight
-carbon vs metal frames
-Bent's love life (or lack thereof)

otherwise post away, and after a couple cocktails swing by the Lownge and leave the "normals" behind. :p

You too...


My pieces of advice:

- Keep your wheels true
- Beer *is* the ultimate recovery beverage (well, chocolate milk works good too!)
- Maintain your drive line -- keep it clean -- you should be able to use your cassette cogs as forks in a pinch

Welcome to RBR. Please pay no attention to the above posts. Those guys have no sense of humor. The 1st thing you should remember is that when asking questions, or seeking advice, is to believe only me. Ignore all others, especially that juvenile delinquent Dino, who masquerades as an old guy.

I have the brain of a 15 year old, if that counts...

resting is about-15
average at 95% output-80

:rolleyes: :D :rolleyes: :D :rolleyes:
Aren't you near death? Wouldn't that put you at 136 years old? That of course would put your max heart rate at 84. :D Wow I hope I can hold it long enough to ride 40 miles when I'm that old... I didnt know they made chamois in a depends version:eek: :thumbsup:
I think I'm gonna like it here!

My Boys are fantastic for being as young as they are (thank god). My bike watches TV with me,

Now you're catching on to the bafoonery! My first RB was a Bianchi as well and for the record I'm barely older than you (39 in Oct.)

As for the Depends chamois- that is the best way to describe the chamois in my Casse de'Pargne bibs. They say to use chamois cream, but that makes the lads feel kinda weird. Maybe I should put the cream on the chamois-:blush2:
