That is nuts
I saw she had the equivalent of a 204:11 gear ratio (I think they do this with two chains).

For comparison, a road bike for a pro might have a 53:11 ratio if they are going on a course where they expect a tailwind or a high speed chase.

Not even, the trademarks were purchased, but it seems like the rest is going away. Hopefully Fuji doesn’t go the way of schwin

small enough thread not to restart a new one for 2019.

They haven't been made in Japan for years, but they are still pretty nice.

Have you watched that? I can't. I just can't. I hate heights.  I guess they wouldn't show it if he fell to his death, would they.

Even knowing he makes it my heart was pounding like crazy :nervous: The last 15 minutes of that movie are beyond intense but soooo worth watching, it's an extraordinary movie it truly is.

Giro d'Italia starts tomorrow.  Getting it on TV is pretty challenging again this year  >:(

Anyone know what teams are showing up for this weekend's Armed Forces Classic?

checked the website but did not see a list of teams.  With Rally being Pro-Continental, I don't know if they are doing domestic crits this year.  UHC used to. Maybe there will be a Floyd Landis sighting!  I actually saw a recognized grand tour winner, Chris Horner, when he was there with Safeway.  Believe it or not, he's still racing.

It is on their schedule.  Armed Forces Classic I think it the new name.  It's not just the Air Force anymore.

Nice.  That wet Clarendon course is going to be a crashfest on Sunday.

I am in a parking lot  near the Cc course. I see vans for Tibco women, Novonordisc, team skyline, elevate, plus service cars. There is also a military  cycling car, but I am not sure they have a team.

65 kph is what, about 50 mph?  So, Thomas gets to defend, with Bernal if the race goes crazy in the mountains.
