    Custard apples perhaps?

    Having grown up with easy access to tropical fruit (and with parents from the tropics), I don't mind paw-paw/papaya. Not really a huge fan of durian although I don't...

    Why is that odd? I thought it was quite common, since the rear has to deal with the torque of the drivetrain.

    These bikes do look really nice. I would be tempted if, yeah. I like that they give...

    I do need to do a FTP test properly but a) suspect it won't have changed much, if at all, and b) not sure I have the TSB to play with right now. Kill Bill is coming (and I'm riding Wakefield on...

    Looking forward to seeing Contador, Quintana, Froome and Nibali duke it out. Not super interested in the sprint stages.

    Yeah I would probably be fine with either Keos or SPD-SLs since they're so similar, but I'm the same - only two bikes with road pedals, and only because of shim / fit issues which I feel like I'm...

    I've certainly seen a movement for a fat(ter) front tire with a rigid fork, and it makes sense to me. I think Ti looks the nicest though :)

    The Lauf I think fits a certain niche where you're not...

    Is that a SS? Looks geared.

    Laufs do look goofy but I would try one if I was into MTBing more - both for the weight savings and the reduced maintenance requirements.

    Haha, enjoy the bike and wheels. Each to their own! I would listen to my daughter over the yahoos around here.

    Admittedly, I removed the stickers that came on my Jake's stock rims back in 2012 and...

    Climbing power numbers (for me as well as others) tend to be higher than on flat ground, or on a trainer - something about out of the saddle body position I think. I find that on a trainer my numbers...

    Thanks for all the suggestions, folks. Sounds like I'll need some elbow grease whichever approach I take. Darn it.

    I have discs on my CX and beater MTB, never really bedded them in, and they don't squeal anything like this. They're horrendous even in dry conditions.

    Disc brake squeal

    So, I think I failed to bed in the brakes on my new MTB. I always just assumed they would bed in by themselves eventually but my research indicates that if you don't do this correctly at the start,...

    This was a surprisingly horrible article for a pro-people transportation group. Even the title pits "Cyclists" vs "People".

    I thought for CX there were 3/4/5 Masters categories? I did a couple 35+ 3/4/5 races (I'm assuming you're talking CX not road here).

    I gotta say, getting to the events (and back) is one of the...
