For some reason I'm just not able to get my average speed any higher. Can anyone help me?
So it's an aero problem? Are we talking the legs or everything? It's been a while since my last Brazilian....
Obviously, you need a lighter bike.
Flip the photo so you'll get on top...
I think the problem is a low tire.
So many issues I don't know where to start. Go clipless. Get rid of the rack and loose clothes. Lose the spoke protectors and dork disk. And fill the tires with nitrogen, not helium.
Wait... you mean you're not in Australia?
Looks like stop frame footage of my wipeout on saturday
Dork disk? Does this mean the lid, as in helmet?
Dork disk is the plastic ring just underneath the rear cassette. Protects the wheel if your chain should slip off the largest cog in the rear. If your taking care of your bike, in other words, making sure your H/L limits are properly set and your chain and cassette are in good working order (replaced when necessary); you shouldn't need it.
Thanks. Picking up the vernacular for any forum can be a challenge. Cheers.
You need to be wearing all spandex. That's the key.
Heh! No, I think you NEED the helmet. Oh, and I meant spoke reflectors, not protectors; that's the function of the dork disk. Other than that, looks good to me...
Try keeping your feet a little flatter for efficient power transfer.
It can be tough. I find out new things all the time.
I tried that and people around me just started vomiting.
Think of how much time this guy has shaved off his TT by being suited up.
I know, I've already posted this before, but couldn't resist. Lots of new members who probably haven't seen it yet.
HA! Poor *******
I don't know for sure, but I suspect the pic of overweight cyclist was taken at a Special Olympics, because he looks like he might have Downs Syndrome. If so, he has more problems than just his weight.

Fool, keep the side with the wheels down.
Damn, buy a book and look at the pictures.
Woundn't you have loved to have had me for a Dad?
