Re: Blowing the Stop Sign on Mt Doug x rd and Blenkinsop

On another note, why are you hiking? d It's my latest workout to try to stay fit while my neck gets better enough to handle regular riding. Mt Doug trail ascents up the really steep trails on the back, as fast as i can climb it. 4 or 5 repeats per morning. Doesn't quite replace riding, but ending i...

Re: Gravel Grinder or CX LSD and off-road Granfondo.

'pretty rough' is a bit of an understatment for what that was. the road was just blast rock

Re: The debate over hydraulic disc brakes in the pro peloton

The almost universal assumption by non engineers is that disc brakes will simply work better on road bikes than rim brakes, when the fact is getting them to work well enough to release has been the driving factor that has delayed their release until now.

Re: Who's at fault?

I'd say the back rider. The front rider's move was sketchy and erratic, his signal was vague, and I'd be pretty ticked if someone pulled a swerve like that on me. At the end of the day though, I think it's your responsibility to protect yourself from those in front of you, and always expect anything...

the first climb of goldstream heights would be perfect for this http://www.strava.com/segments/642935 1.3km, 121m, + big wide open road with good pavement and almost no traffic to descend on, would cut the total saddle time down considerably, just need to make sure you have the right gearing as it's...
