If you could only have one bike, what would it be?

Inspired by David's comment in another discussion. The word "or" is banned unless the bike is an Orbea as it defeats the point of the discussion. :)Continue

I thought I'd start this thread to exchange tips on how to behave as cyclists whether as roadies, mountain bikers, e-bikers or anything else. I figure we can offer suggestions as to how we should…Continue

"Fantastic write-up and an epic ride. Ride of your life indeed! I'm glad you were well-rewarded for the early, rainy start with a thrilling experience. It's left me wanting to take my recumbent out for more rides after not riding any bike…"

"Thanks Ian, I was also wet all day and I wouldn't have minded if they had cancelled it, but we were all out there to ensure the riders had the best time that they could. We all just had to ride to the conditions as we do at any time."

So, that was a thoroughly unpleasant ride. I experienced torrential rain as did many others, one mate was made to get off and walk through a flooded roadway while carrying his bike, I saw a group of 3 or 4 at the front of my group touch wheels and crash and then turned in to some brutal headwinds bringing groups to a standstill while others struggled to keep their bikes straight when those winds came from the side. To top things off, I saw one rider make a very poor decision and wear white…See More

Phillip Mercer replied to Fab from Tropicalm's discussion Technical question about wearing black jerseys
"It’s a pretty basic desire to want to look good or the best you can. It’s no secret that people feel good if they think they look good. I know 1) I don’t look good in white as how unflattering it is and 2) how hard it is to keep a…"

Phillip Mercer replied to Fab from Tropicalm's discussion Technical question about wearing black jerseys
"From a vanity point of view, a black jersey is more slimming. Rapha, which many cyclists swear by (I don't own any myself) for comfort and style put out a lot of blakc and navy jerseys. The coloured editions I've seen, seem to show sweat…"
