    Didn't get a chance to post yesterday but I did manage a fairly casual, 24 mile ride. I want to
    ease into getting back to where I was before the vacation so I'm alternating a slow ride with a
    faster o...

    My new Shimano M530 attached to crank, a few weeks old already. And my NOT SO OLD M520 pedal.

    Thanks Joe!Today's ride was another moderate to slow ride since I decided to gradually get back
    into my riding groove rather than jump right into it. Rode with my buddy Marcel, at around
    14-15 mph pac...

  • Posted in thread: Handle bar tape on 08-26-2016 at 08:29 PM
    I put new tape on my bike two days before we left for vacation. The time before that was in
    March. What I like about the 3T is that it washes out fairly nicely. However, too many washings
    will start t...

    This is what happens when old age sets in. Took my cages off before vacation, to replace them,

    able to ge...

    I was using Zipp and Lizard Skins but their white tapes stained really quickly. They were
    really nice and comfortable. I've also used Profile Design tape but didn't like it. I'm now
    using 3T tape and ...

    If price is an issue for your friend, have her look at the Terra Trike and Greenspeed Trikes.

    morning fo...
