Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

The Pope and Donald Trump are on the same stage in Yankee Stadium in front of a huge crowd. The Pope leans towards Donald and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go dee...

Re: Crank lengths !

There is a trend for shorter crank lengths when getting older [ and wiser ] shorter cranks are kinder to the knees.

Another advantage of shorter cranks is improved aerodynamics - feet not churning up such a wide cycle of air.

Re: Wrist and hand pain.

I also wonder how many cyclists had these wrist nerve issues back in the pre-1990 days before computer keyboards were marketed for the masses (?) There were millions of people spending long hours of repetitive actions at keyboards before the 90s... Jonathan Yes i was one of them, but fortunately ne...

But oddly, after not riding my bike for over a week, my right hand is now even worse than when i was riding (?) What seemed to hurt my hand more than anything was pot-holes, but expect more to it than that. I can't wait to get better so i can try the advice on the above vid, move cleats back, lower...

Re: Wrist and hand pain.

Moving the saddle back will transfer some of the effort of cycling from your quads to your hamstrings. If you don't move it much, you will in time get used to the different pattern of muscle use, but if you need to un-load the hamstrings, move your cleats back. (and that's counter-intuitive). Other...
