    I get it too since I bought a bike at Performance and joined their buyers club beforehand. I usually read 50% of each issue readily enough, 25% with some difficulty, and never read 25% - about the same as any mass media magazine really.

    Their worst thing is the annual "Buyers Guide"...

    Oooooooh, I bet that's why I started getting it. That membership paid for itself already, but I've been trying to focus on using my REI membership instead. Of course, I spent the big money at FreshBikes and now that they're my LBS (as in, closest geographically) I'll probably spend most of my dollars there, but PB and REI have some irresistible sales...

    REI carries Pedro's ice wax. Just sayin'.

    Yea, with the new FreshBikes over in the Mosaic in Merrifield, they're the second closest to me (Bonzai being closest), plus my gym's right there, so I'll have to stop in and drool some.

    Since you're now in Westover, don't forget about Bikenetics in Falls Church and Tri360 at East Falls Church.

    There's a creak, and there's a rattle. Man says rattle, I'm thinking energetic 6 month old or metal parts flapping in the breeze. :-)

    So I have to tie my shorts to my shoes?

    ELITE!
    My dear wife read this over my shoulder and said she strongly disagreed with this rule. Seems she thinks me in kit is pay back for her manning the household helm while I am out peddling around.

    Hiding her glasses helps too.

    I made this mistake once. After a really warm day, I sat in my chair (cooling off in the A/C) for about 30 minutes before heading up to the shower. I don't have terribly sensitive skin, but that 30 minutes wrecked me for a few days. I'm still not sure what caused the rash, but it did go away ladies, so I'm all safe now
