    Rain only 'til midday according to weather.com, windy afternoon should dry things up for Tues AM. Fingers crossed; I am not keen to remount studded tires.

    Yeah, I think carefully about maximizing calories. In truth, I rarely buy lunch out and cook cheap carb-heavy food, so my costs are definitely less than the $0.50 I suggested. But if I were eating at...

    A couple friends and I were discussing riding down to watch (men's road?) and then back up. I imagine we would have to split that into two days, so maybe we would see more events. I don't know...

    There are a few sections of ice still, near the golf course between Whiele and RTC. I rode it on slicks today, but there were several moments that I could not describe as "confident" (or maybe even...

    Yeah, GB is right; I spend a lot more than what I *need* to on my bike. My estimated $700-900/year was sort of "my minimum". In reality I spend easily twice that on my bicycles, the other stuff is...

    I guess it's funny, but the arguments are mostly so superficial.

    For example, this is a theme:


    Um, why aren't you doing your own car maintenance? It's not like maintaining a car is...

    Yes, I'm a little surprised this hasn't been snatched up yet, but then I look out the window and it's snowing here (in Reston), so perhaps this frame will wait until the first warm weekend in March...
  9. Yeah, that was confusing. I guess I am saying...

    Yeah, that was confusing. I guess I am saying that on a racy bike I like the extra road feel that 23mm tires provide. I also like that the tire sidewalls match the rim width (24.5mm). And the latex...

    To be fair, the limiter is probably the fork, not frame. The frame probably fits a 28c tire on wide rim, since they call that out in their marketing.

    Yeah, I was running 25mm tires all summer on...

    No, no, no! :) This is Foundry's "road race" frame, and it is outfitted accordingly. Max tire size is probably 25c -- I had a tire measuring 27mm (a 25c tire on a wide rim) in the fork and it was...

    I will even thrown in a free stem 90-130mm and bars (but I only have 44cm bars)!

    *And* I will even build you wheels for this thing at cost. E.g. I can spec/build a decent set of carbon clinchers...

    I know! I started pricing out shortening surgery, but I think the smart money is on selling the frame instead. The weight loss aspect of the surgery is attractive, though. What to do!!
  15. Foundry Riveter road disc frame (54cm) + full carbon fork

    I'm selling a 54cm Foundry Riveter frame and a generic full-carbon fork. http://foundrycycles.com/bikes/riveter

    How I ended up with this definitely-too-small-for-me frame is a bit of a long story,...

    Phones are fine for just creating a GPS track for short rides, but 1) the GPS is typically not very good, 2) you can't keep it on to see your speed, HR etc. (w/o killing your battery super fast,...

    They rode their bicycles wearing t-shirts in "feels like 9F" temps? Kudos to them, but that does sound a little insane.
