    FWIW, I think this ride is most fun if you can find some people to ride with who are around the same cycling fitness level. Trade pulls and paceline, and the laps will fly by. There is a lot of lycra...

    Definitely not Bikenetic. The officer got annoyed and kept moving them back several (many?) times.

    Yeah it's amazing how much a little difference makes. Honestly I still don't know what would fit right on most of my bikes (MTB, CX, SSCX/hybrid, folding bike). The road bike (and FG) are both...

    If you get a fit they might tell you the bike itself is just too big and then you'll cry. :(

    As jrenaut says, it's probably THE pitstop in DC. More people and publicity than the rest of them. More political too, obviously. A friend of mine (riding with me) was interviewed there for a TV...

    Not entirely surprised, but it's sad to see. This was the first group/shop ride I ever did! I imagine there'll still be a group out there anyway most Tuesdays through the season.

    What I said in that other thread about DB, pretty much. And agree with the sentiment that it's basically Fuji/Scattante/GT/etc.

    I have to admit I had the same reaction when I first read the article (before seeing this BSNYC commentary).

    "My other bike is an Audi Q7."

    I mentioned the existing season's model of this bike to Jan once. He asked me my size, and I quickly had to back down to avoid the possibility of having a "test model" ordered.
