"When you go on repeatedly about a firm, high psi ride, I thought you were riding a road bike! Ride quality is a relative and personal thing. For example, I would imagine that I would find your rig rather "relaxed" for my tastes, but it may…"

"The month of Janus has past with 472. 8 miles and one Perimeter Ride registered y-t-d. For my own record keeping, that breaks down to just 121.5 miles on the streets and 351.3 "lovely" miles in the gym, which places me 189.8 miles ahead of…"

"Sorry to have missed this ride (again), but there is a flu bug in the house. Achy, light-headed, with a nasty cough. However, I did get my first Perimeter Ride of the year in on Thursday (1/25), almost a year to the day from last year's first."

"The 83 Perimeter Rides of the city of Chicago. First PR of the year was on an overcast January 23rd with temps running between 39 and 43 degrees. The last PR was on a sunny December 20th with temps running from 46 up to 50 and dropping down to 42 by…"

"Fixing flats in freezing and sub-freezing temps is the primary reason I transition to my mountain bike -- willing to sacrifice speed (already slowed by lower temps as discussed at length in a thread here last year) for less flats. Well, that and I…"

"I don't understand your point, Tony. I clearly delineated my mileage, which makes it easy for anyone to compare their road miles. You make it sound like I am padding my numbers. For what it's worth, not every stationary ride was dictated…"

"Why don't zwifter miles count?? In the spirit of full disclosure, my count this year includes stationary "miles." In March, after a rib-pull injury I experienced on the rowing machine (so much for cross-training!), I began to embrace…"

"The Meteor Mittens read well with a good deal of versatility provided by its multi-layered approach. Plus, she won't read you as being cheap!"
