Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
does anyone know what time zone the 10AM to 2PM road bike gear is going to be?
Because millions of women complaining about poorly fitting bra straps must be wrong.
So when does this mountain day you speak of happen? My job is painfully boreing so all I really do is watch SAC and CL-
My Wish List-
Northwave Carbon Raptors
Maxxis Ignitor UST 26x2.35
Kenda Nevegal 26x2.35
Girlfriend (pref. brunette 24 to 27 yrs but Im flexible)
Lucky for us that these shorts are on SAC, all 113 of 'em, and not on CL... this is still way better than clawing through racks of junk at Marshall's.
Road helmet, nothing flashy, white or black preferred, in a size large
Conti GP4000s, in 700x23c or 25c.
That is all that I ask.
During the 4 hours of Road:
DuraAce rear der
DuraAce double levers
gimme gimme gimme plz
yaaaa just bought my first item after looking @ the site for weeks now...needed a plain jersey, nothing super flashy but wanted to "im not a complete noob" look when im riding.
im 6'1 190, think an XL will fit nice?
And I'm out of town for work...hope they don't mind me shopping from their network :)
What I need? Nothing.
What I want? Full zip jersey, helmet (for commute, no need to go crazy), unchained time so I can ride.
On Mountain day:
Michelin Mountain AT MTB Tire - 26x2.35in
Continental Gravity Classic Tire
On Road day:
Michelin Pro 3 Race Road Bike Tires - 700x23mm (if the stars would only align)
Continental Grand Prix 4000 Clinchers (in red)
Continental Grand Prix 4000s Tire
It doesn't hurt to ask, right?
I am not sure why people think they can get away with this, but here is yet another fiend shamelessly selling what he/she bought on CL on KSL. http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=487&ad=3706200&cat=191&lpid=
What’s the difference between a road biker and a mountain biker?
A. About 5 ft of Lycra.
B. The size of their crank.
C. Ten inches of travel.
D. The cleanliness of their undercarriage.
We get it. Some of you like fat treads, downhill forks, baggy shorts, and full-face protection. Some of you prefer the wind whipping over your (hairless) legs as your shiny components glint like George Hamilton’s teeth in the sun.
Chainlove is setting aside 4 hours this Tuesday (tomorrow) from 10am to 2pm exclusively for Road Junkies and 4 hours this Wednesday from 10am to 2pm exclusively for Mountain Bikers. Now you can tune in to what you want and avoid seeing those high-friction knobbies or the lycra-bibbed plum smugglers if you really don’t want to. And for those of you who love everything related to two-wheeled travel, we’re keeping the deals flowing nonstop every hour in between. Tune in for your pleasure.
Except when you have to take a dump. Then you have to get naked :D
Road Ride Tuesday - 10AM-2PM tomorrow -
100% Road Riding Bling
You have to wear baselayers.
Those straps can chafe the hell outta your nips when the temperature turns brisk.
I've got about 8pr bibs and only 4pr shorts anymore. I prefer bibs - but they can be inconvenient.
One of my friends would walk around with his shoulder straps 'down' after a ride, while in the process of getting changed. Another friend ran ran by and pulled on the shoulder straps and there he was, in all his nekkid glory!
> Does anyone use bibs over shorts? Ive never
> tried, but it would seem that they would stay in
> place better. Are there any other advantages?
- bibs don't cut into your waist with an elastic. they use straps over your shoulders to remain in place, versus an elastic band
- they do stay in place better
- they aren't thicker and tapered around the waist like shorts, so you have a more even distribution of fabric
- they make you look like an oompa-loompa
I received my Accelerade shipment about 2 weeks ago.... beware, it tastes okay and works decently well, but it makes me fart like crazy. No joke.
one of the worst sports drinks ever made. I tried a can several years back and I think I used it for one bike ride. Yuck. Went back to my Gatorade. I also wonder what the expiry date is???
young guys can ride road bikes too and in fact they do
stop being ignorant and ask nicely for some of the stuff you want and maybe you'll get it
i've been lookin for road tires here for weeks and they haven't put up the ones i was looking for
and they always seem to have mtb apparel and disc brakes
so stop your whining
