New Friday route?

The A1 ride today introduced a new wrinkle to the time honored Friday route because of the ongoing construction around Beacon Hill: The new wrinkle goes up Caddie Bay and does one loop of the Tuesday box without any sprints. This adds the distance lost by losing the laps at BHP and also adds another...

Speedway

Thanks to John T. Martin, the other volunteers and the officials last night for another awesome evening of racing. That must be the biggest turnout for almost all the races ever. Congrats. So much fun racing on a closed circuit, on a spectacular spring evening (and not on the box, in the dark, dodgi...

Chris' answer is, IMHO, the best.

Bike travel bags

Anyone have any recommendations on buying a travel bag for a bike.
Preferably one that could accommodate either a road or MTB.

Re: A question for the doctors: how many Tylenol can I take?

Im a doctor who prescribes these things : My 2 cents- just for information and a word of caution: You can safely take 4g of Tylenol a day without any issues. You can probably take more, but you may run into issues with your liver. This is highly unlikely though in a fit healthy person with a good me...

B rides- a suggestion

Tripleshot caters for all levels of riders. To that end, we have designated "A","B" and "C" rides: "A" rides are drop rides and if you leave the parking lot on an A ride, no one is expected or expecting to wait for you. If you have a mechanical, the group may stop to help, but its incumbent on you t...

Amstel gold- the race that was lost 6 weeks ago

For those with a passing interest in bike racing, the 2019 Amstel Gold race today was a classic. If you can find a feed of the last 50km, its a classic- (try tiz-cycling or youtube). This interview from one of the vanquished tells the story of the race and how a memory from how the Strade Bianchi pl...

Re: Helmets

I think the point is that enforcing a helmet law maybe has negative consequences with respect to getting people on bikes. I think anyone riding without a helmet is nuts for all the reasons you point out Chris. But, having spent some time in Amsterdam where EVERYONE rides a bike and NO ONE wears a he...

Re: Recommendations for a new bike

Yes to disc brakes..No question. Better braking. Future proof. Electronic shifting has the advantage of being almost maintenance free. Long term (ie 3 or 4 years down the line) , the problem with electronic shifting though is that as the newer stuff comes on the market, the older stuff becomes obsol...

Re: Shimano 6770 10 speed front derrailleur

Thanks everyone. Ebay did in fact have a couple of used derailleurs in various states of repair. There were a few new ones online in the rest of the world, but in the end Brent from Velofix came through with a contact at Shimano. Problem solved and Martin will not have to break the news to Paula tha...

Shimano 6770 10 speed front derrailleur

Long shot, but does anyone have an old 10 speed 6770 Ultegra Shimano Di2 derailleur they are looking to part with? The one on my winter bike broke and trying to find a new one is impossible. Alternative is basically a whole new groupset, which would be 11speed, which would mean basically a new bike....
