Depends on your pain tolerance. I did not do my first century until I had a base of 150 miles per week for at least five weeks and at least two 75 mile training rides. But that's just me. Some say...

First pull up next to the person and ask if they mind if you jump on his wheel. If you go for more than a few minutes, offer to take turns with pulls. Never just jump on without letting a person...

I don't buy French bikes for the same reason I don't buy French cars: the French copy no one , and no one copies the French. On the other hand, French food and French wine cannot be copied although...

I go over the straps for safety, not for looks. If you crash, you want your glasses to go flying off you rather than to be pushed into your eye or face possibly causing loss of sight or permanent...

I'm not sure about your theories and reasons, but I can agree that bike shop repair persons do seem less competent than in the past. I do a lot of my own wrenching more because I enjoy it than...
