LATEST BLOG ENTRIESMy cycling month in review: July 2014
As I like to do at the beginning of each month, today I’m going review some of my cycling highlights, personal records and totals from the previous month. July may have been very hot and humid, but I turned the cranks harder, faster and further than ever before, setting numerous personal records in the process. It was a good month. Before I dive into the data, I’d like to introduce a new feature of my… [Read more]

JSF Forms changes: my proposal to the community.
In a couple of recent blogs (see “New forums to be added? Suggestions and feedback encouraged!” and “Follow-up to yesterday’s blog: JSF Forum changes are coming.“), I talked about a few changes to the JSF Forums that I have been considering. There are nearly 1,000,000 existing posts on the JSF Forums, so I had to make my choices with that in mind. Clearly I can’t go through and start moving individual posts around. Also, I… [Read more]

Bontrager Speed Limit rear brake problem.
Since late last August I’ve put 15,000 kilometers on my 2013 Trek Madone 5.9, and I absolutely love this bike. I’ve also done all my own mechanical work on the Madone, and I find that it’s almost as fun to work on as it is to ride. So, after nearly a year of ownership, 15,000 kilometers in its saddle and dozens of hours in my work stand for routine maintenance, I think I have a… [Read more]

Saying goodbye to my saddle bag: enter the Sticky Pod.
In late June I published an article titled “What I carry on road rides“. In that article I discussed not only what I carry on road rides, but how I carry all of that stuff around. Up until late last week I’ve always used an under-the-saddle bag to carry a large portion of my emergency gear. I’m not a big fan of saddle bags but, as I stated in the article, I’ve always felt that… [Read more]

2014 maintenance progress report: week #19
Week #19 of my 2014 maintenance program is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. Note that during my vacation ending June 15th I put on a little unwanted weight, so starting on June 16th I began a “mini-cut”. You can read more about all of this in my blog, “Post-vacation report: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly“. This mini-cut will continue until I get back down to my desired weight of… [Read more]

Weight down, power up; New photo.
It’s shaping up to be another productive week of fat loss–and my power on the bike and energy levels have not suffered in the least. My scale weight as of this morning is 162.8 pounds (73.85 kilograms), and a couple of my soft tape measurements have gone down another quarter inch over the past week. As always, I’ll be doing a full set of soft tape measurements, a 7-site body fat test and a full… [Read more]
