Re: Virtual training options

Bluetooth is nicest as you can tie right to computer (or smart phone in many cases). One thing you want to check is if the trainers you have have calibrations in Zwift. The speed sensor is then used against that calibration curve for the particular trainer to know how much power the avatar in the ga...

Re: covid-19 and group rides

Re: Sufferfest videos?

Just sign-up for a 14 day free trial (online).

Wanted: old stationary trainer

Anyone have an old (but working) trainer they want to get rid of? Set my one kid up on my old one, and now the other wants to ride at same time too!

How is a cyclist at fault if someone walks in front of them, staring down at their phone?

Happened to me in London years ago, guy just stepped out right in front of me, not paying attention at all...

Tires for summer

Looking at either panaracer Gravel King or Gravel King SKs (smooth vs with some tread) 38mm for the cross bike in spring/summer road and trail riding.

What are people finding the best around here for mixed riding fun?

Re: Looking to for input on and to borrow a set of rollers for a week.

Have tried rollers a few times; had to pay attention the whole time, and can't put down much power so useful for pedalling technique but not for improving power etc or trying to watch a movie etc.

How this would be fun to try!

Hitch mount rack for 4

Dreaming of warmer weather and carrying up to 4 bikes on a hitch rack; tray style for road, cross, mountain, and hopefully fat bikes in the future.
Anyone have any experience with the Thule XT Pro or 1up-usa racks? They seem the top picks out there but a lot of $ so want to be sure of the choice!

Here is another option. TS Jersey - Neil Pink Light Cup Front.jpg TS Jersey - Neil Pink Light Cup Back.jpg TS Jersey - Neil Pink Light Cup Side.jpg This one looks really sharp!

Re: Recommendations for case for carbon bike for air travel

I've got an Evoc soft bag that I took around Europe that works well. Collapses down for storage and not going with a hard case avoids overweight airline fees (in addition to bike bag fees that vary a huge amount between airlines)
