Anonymous asked: when was the last time you did a power test?
Anonymous asked: Is your cracking physical or mental?
Anonymous asked: Do you ever look at your power-meter numbers during the race? I felt like the finish line straightaway this weekend would have been a good time to look down and see how few watts I was putting out.
Never. My computer only shows speed, time, and distance on my race screen.
cargo1234 asked: Anything you would suggest beyond the obvious (ride more!) to help work on fast corner handling skills? I use my brakes to Damn much!
Ride your mountain bike. It’s easier to get the hang of the two wheel drift on fat tires.
cargo1234 asked: Do you have a particular process you use when gluing tires? Tips etc
Nothing special. I usually don’t bother cleaning off old glue from used rims when gluing a fresh tire. My tire gluing process is pretty standard stuff.
Anonymous asked: Are you racing down in NC this weekend?
Anonymous asked: What's your take on this Specialized "owns" Roubaix stuff?
Based on my limited understanding of copyright law it seems silly at best. I don’t think anyone is going to confuse the Specialized Roubaix products with products sold out of a tiny shop in Canada that has the same word in its name.
Anonymous asked: in norcal, there are still a few local cross races to be enjoyed. training straight through and showing up to have a good time sounds nice, but will it negate any of the base riding i will be doing for road season?
It’s not going to make you faster. But if you just want to keep the stoke level high then go for it.
Hotel life with RSCX.
boxerboxerboxer asked: I was hooked in the first few pages, but now, having gone back through 281 of the 307 pages of archives, it's the wonderful little surprises, like Left and Leaving, Junkyard Cross vids, amaazing silly BMX, and the dramatic reading (still one of my favorite internet things) that keep me coming back. Thanks for putting these bits of you up here. I guess what I'm really trying to say is I want to make a.. skinsuit.. from your skin? Love, Ben
Congratulations you’re a creep.
