Is 27 too old to be a professional (road) cyclist? Is there anyone on here who is pro or semi-pro that can talk about what the sport is like at that level?

Upon seeing the imprint of my Assos chamois which graces my exposed ballbag, I am pushed over the edge and the big semens fly out, coating all, dappled silver dewdrops 'pon my taut grimacing maw

Buying a bike

46 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So, I've decided to give up my car. I need to ride 6 miles (back and forth) each day over questionable sidewalks and hills. I have a limit of 550 dollars to get the best bike possible. Do you guys have any suggestions? What type of bike should I look for? I plan to use this bike for at least 2 years.

>This bike is equipped with the following... - LOOK Carbon Fiber front fork - Chris King bearings - Mavis Open Pro 32h 700c rims - Shimano Ultegra FlightDeck gearing - Cannondale saddle w/ Thompson seat mount - Cateye accessories (Computer, front light, rear LED flasher) - Two bottle holders - Two sets of peddles (regular, mounting cycling shoes) I have a bunch of accessories I am also willing to include... - Under-saddle bag - Emergency tire repair kit - JoeBlow Presta/Schroeder Valve hand pump - Abus heavy-duty chain bike lock I am asking $1200 obo for everything minus the Giro Saros G266 Livestrong helmet (large), which I'll include or sell separate for $60. The cost of the frame was $3200 new, and each rim cost $600 at the time, so no low-ballers! Is this a good deal, anon? It almost seems to be too good to be true if the frame costs that much new.

I'm 240 lbs, is there any point in me getting a road bike? Feel like I'm wasting my money on extra performance capability that I'll never be able to tap. I used to have a road bike back when i was 170 lbs, I got fat, sold it and now a year later I want to get back into road cycling but I'm wondering if I should lose the weight first. Currently I'm losing weight on some shit mountain bike that I picked up second hand.

Okay SpeedPlay vs SPD-SL style pedals I can't get a clear reason on why one is better than the other, the LBS says I'm getting better performance on my SL's but I like the aesthetics of the SpeedPlay a lot more; and seeing Grand Tour riders use them makes me think that there has to be some race quality ones out there.

Why have you never cycled in Minneapolis, /n/? Were you not aware that Minneapolis is the best city on Earth for urban cycling? Did you not realize what you have been missing out on your whole life?

Old thread reached bump limit, here is link to that thread: >>704198 Anyone know a solid jacket? I have a nice base layer and even a jersey, but temperatures drop low to around 0-5° F, or about -15°C and it will be windy.

Do you get happy when it's pitch black and really fucking cold outside, but at least it isn't raining or snowing? Have you even climbed a mountain, only to turn back to descend and think "Oh boy, it's gonna get chilly now" Have you ever ridden your bike for two months without seeing another fellow cyclist on the road? Have you ever been struck by the feels while riding out there in the rain and cold? You're not alone! >Mountain biking >Road riding >Grocery getting >Commuting Join us! strava.com/clubs/forever-shinkansen Also, http://veloviewer.com won't be free anymore after this weekend. So take your last chance to play with your Strava data for free there. Brag about your Veloviewer score ITT.
