Hatter Taking this week off from blogging; New JSF Forum work continues.

I apologize for the short notice, but I’ve decided that I need to take this week off from blogging so that I may focus my time and energy on other tasks. Even though I won’t be writing daily blogs this week, when I’m not involved with my day job I’ll be working behind the scenes to get the all-new JSF Forums ready to launch (see Possible new JSF Forum software coming… and BTC v2.0 feedback;… [Read more]

EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale 2015 maintenance progress report: Week #2

Week #2 of my 2015 maintenance program is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. METHODS AND MINUTIA: A few words about my body fat test, scale weight and soft tape measurements My body fat, tape measurements and scale weight are all performed while fasted (first thing in the morning before eating or drinking). All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is… [Read more]

forum BTC v2.0 feedback; JSF Forums – a few more thoughts.

I was in bed by 9:00 last night, but for some reason I slept until almost 6:00 this morning. That almost never happens. Normally I’m on my second cup of coffee by 4:45 AM. I guess I needed the extra sleep, but rising so late has put me a little behind this morning. I want to thank everyone for the great feedback on v2.0 of my Bike Torture Chamber! When I revised my BTC I… [Read more]

John Stone Fitness Forums Possible new JSF Forum software coming…

The software used to run the JSF Forums (vBulletin) has been in use since the forum opened back in early 2004. While the forum software has been upgraded numerous times over the years, I have elected to remain on an older major version of the software. The reason I’ve not moved the forums to vBulletin’s newest release is because, frankly, I don’t care for it. vBulletin is not the same company it was back in… [Read more]

Racking up the free credits! Competitive Cyclist “Get Paid To Ride” promotion.

EDIT: Regrettably, moments after publishing this blog I was informed that entry to this program is currently closed. I guess the response was huge. You can, however, sign up to be notified of future availability, and I recommend that you do! Competitive Cyclist‘s “Get Paid To Ride” promotion has been blowing up all over social media lately, but I know many of you want nothing to do with Facebook and the like. This is such… [Read more]

View from the saddle while running Zwift. Golden Cheetah is running on the laptop, the Zwift app is running on the smartphone and Netflix is running on the tablet. Bike Torture Chamber v2.0!

In October 2012 I completely redesigned the cardio section of my home gym: I added a fluid trainer, a laptop and some other stuff that would allow me to do structured indoor training using my road bike. If you’re interested, you can check out the initial version of my Bike Torture Chamber (BTC) here. My BTC has served me well over the past couple of years, but recently I decided that some changes were in… [Read more]

That's better! Installation of the hoods is very easy and requires no tools. Replacing worn brake hoods.

I have put 29,000 kilometers (18,000 miles) on my 2013 Trek Madone Di2. As expected, over those nearly 30,000 kilometers I’ve replaced numerous wearable parts: chains, cassettes, tires, tubes, bottom bracket bearings, headset bearings, wheel bearings, pedals, saddle, brake cables/housing, bar tape… I’ve even had to replace the rear Di2 derailleur and crankset. Something I’ve never given much thought to are the brake hoods. Recently, however, they refused to stay put. The hoods would not… [Read more]
