  • Posted in thread: Why Lycra on 06-10-2016 at 08:36 AM
    Lycra is comfortable if you buy the proper fit. There's nothing to flap in the wind A chamois
    is a must. There are many logoless products out there. As for expensive, you get what you pay
    for. I have ...

    Rain when the sun is shining for an example. I have no word for that. Sun shower.

    Seems like not a real big concern unless you're a pro road cyclist.

  • Posted in thread: How many crashes have you had this year? on 05-16-2016 at 01:47 PM

    athlete who has had a 2 year, 4 year, or lifetime ban after getting caught.

  • Posted in thread: Getting Dropped on 04-16-2016 at 09:40 AM
    I've been group riding 40 years, raced about 6. I've dropped people, and been dropped. By far
    the greater pleasure is being dropped, as I have no ego and get nothing out of being faster
    than someone. ...
