    Zwift - wattage question

    I don’t get why I’m so slow in zwift. i think I have it calibrated right - ie when im in a flat section on Zwift I go a similar speed to what I would do in the real world (20 mph give or take) and my wattage is usually in a range that is similar to what Strava says I do in the real world (in...

    Can I put gravel tires on a mtb rim? Tubeless?

    So the rear wheel on my gravel bike is getting beat up and will need to be replaced soon. I have a number of extra mtb wheels (eg, Stan’s flow Ex). I am pretty sure they will fit the bike, but will the mtb rim work with a tubeless gravel tire (35 or 38)?

    Totally random refrigerator question

    I just got a mini fridge and there are two Cooper tubes in the back that have foam on them. I can’t find any indication whether i am supposed to take them off (ie, they are there just for protection when in the box) or if I am supposed to keep (maybe provides insulation to the tubes?) Thoughts?

    New gravel grinder ride in PA in October: unPAved of the Susquehanna River Valley

    3 options: 30, 90, 120 miles looks likes the majority is on gravel roads through state forest lands. the elevation/ grade profile looks, gulp, interesting. rather than the continual up and down of gravel grinders Ive done, this ride is basically 4 loooong climbs followed by even longer...

    [a very large proportion of] drivers of large pick up trucks drive like complete a-holes

    I drive 70 miles every day on 287 and the GSP and have made the undeniable (IMHO) observation that a very large percentage of people who drive those extra large pick ups drive like total assholes. They tailgate like crazy! Weave in and out of lanes and just genrally drive like complete...

    Lets talk about compression

    In my long-term battle against leg cramps I have recently come to the opinion that (for me) compression is the key. I recently bought a pair of cheap calf sleeves from a sporting goods store and am convinced that they do wonders ((for me) in keeping cramps at bay. So, with the success of these...
