Is it smart to equip a mountain bike with a road group set and drop bars?
It’s BEAUTIFUL. Be careful on the tandem but if you guys are pros then up through mill valley up mount tamalpais!
I shall have to look up those things! Cheers.
Aye, not only because being able to ride on a group is of benefit to you, but also because people who aren't experienced at group rides can be a bit of a menace to the rest of the group.
Who cares? There’s guys around here I’ve ridden with who can blow my doors off on the road but can’t ride for shit on dirt. Some people can just develop skills better in different areas
Best to focus on losing the weight then building your fitness when you hit your goalApparently I have a decent FTP (270w for 30m or more, haven't tested for higher). But the problem is that also I'm considerably heavy (88kg, 195 pounds). So the way to become a better cyclist, specially a climber, is obviously to lose the extra fat that I still have. So....
Is there a way to lose weight without losing fitness? All I have read about losing weight without losing 'fitness' is 'avoid cardio!'. As a cyclist, obviously I don't want to lose cardio either!
A piece of advice: don’t get a cheap bike because it will make you end up hating biking. There are lots of nice used bikes one can get if you’re on a budget!i want to start biking but dont know where to begin. with the wife and kids, i'd imagine most of my riding would be on (poorly maintained) streets, but i also live in a rural area with lots of dirt roads and hills. is a hybrid something i should look for or would i be better off sticking with a noob friendly, cheap, mtn bike? i dont want to be held back by a jack of all trades master of none and think i'd rather have a slower/tougher street ride then to not be able to ride off road. price range is maybe $500, been eye balling the hybrid trek 2, what else is in this range i should be looking at or into?
Congrats man! Gotta be happy with that result, I know I would be.So, how bad are Strava power estimations? Because power meters are really too expensive to consider IMHO... and the powercurve of the race is too good for what I was expecting.
As for the race. It wasn't bad. In the 20's out of 300'ish. But I'm sure I could have done better.
We wanted you to be one of the first to hear the great news that Team Sky will become Team INEOS from May this year. The transfer of ownership of the team from Sky to INEOS will take place on 1 May ahead of the Tour de Yorkshire.
We are very excited about our new partnership with INEOS and the opportunities it creates for the team and for cycling more widely. INEOS share our culture, passion for the sport and vision for the future, and we look forward to working with them on the next chapter in the team’s story.
We will be saying a lot more about our collective ambitions in a few weeks’ time. In the meantime, a massive thank you for all your support over the last couple of months in particular. The backing on the road and the many messages of support we have received have meant a huge amount to us. Today’s announcement brings the uncertainty to an end and ensures complete continuity for the future, with INEOS honouring all existing commitments to riders, staff and other sponsors in full.

Exciting times and a very bright future lie ahead. Thank you again.
Everyone at Team Sky / Team INEOS
Hey, looks familiar!I got a Wahoo Bolt yesterday and it's awesome. Got the Red version so it matches the trim on my bike and I'm loving the way it looks. Up until now I've been using an iPhone 8+ on my stem which was just way too big, I was hitting it with my knees and the notifications and flat battery warnings were giving me the shits so I'm glad to do away with it. The Bolt is way smaller than I thought it would be but the screen is really easy to read. Just waiting for this damn rain to stop now so I can get out and ride!
