Look Quartz Pedals

Hi all, I purchased a pair of Look Quartz pedals. They rock! Easy to clip in and out of. I also have SPD and Candy's. These have a better feel with enough float for my pedaling style. Mine are red and I put them on my Redline Sport. Make sure to add a shim, I used mine with my Specialized shoes. Without the shims it is hard to get locked in.

FS: Race Ready 2003 Bianchi Axis

2003 Bianchi Axis - 55cm (slightly compact/sloping frame, will therefore fit anyone in a 54-57cm range)

Race Ready; bought the frame and fork stock a couple years back. With the exception of the seatpost and headset, everything else has been spec'd out for an extremely race-oriented bike. That being said, the bike is incredibly versatile and with a few minor adjustments would be perfect for everyday road use.

Rainier High

So I have been over at the Rainier High School course looking at different lines and ways we can change it up a bit but keep the big climb, there is also a nice set of stairs about 40 in total that would be a nice addition, but might kill a guy! last years course was pretty cool and very fast maybe a few more tight turns?

Back on the bike!

Finally I can go outside and ride my bike! Today Jesse Lopez and I another Crossniac are planning on taking the Mountain bikes out, I`am to wear a heart rate monitor and not let it go over 175, and also try to keep it at a level 150-155 we will see not always easy on an MTB ride! In December I purchased a Cannondale F2 and and two days after receiving it I was in the hospital, so this will be its break in ride along with mine, and I`m sure Jesse will try to burry me but I just have to ride my… Continue

A "Roubaix" ride

Well… the Easter weekend sure turned out better than expected! Some decent biking (including a “Roubaix” like ride in hell on Sunday afternoon), some good beer, good eating, good family time, and I enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire a lot on Friday night.

But the big bonus of the weekend happened yesterday. A few months ago, my LBS hooked me up with a decent beginner road bike for my wife. A Felt Z90 that we pimped up a bit with a mix of 105/Ultegra components. So after training on the… Continue

Suggestions on Cross shoes

Newbie here. What would be a good setup for cross shoes and pedals that would work for road rides too?

T minus 170 days (or something like that)

The denial is over. Me and cross were more than likely a match made in heaven, but I guess I was in denial. Since my “lifestyle change” in 2006 (the losing 100 lbs and getting back in shape thing) I flirted with running and with triathlons and duathlons. And I had a blast. But there was always “something” missing.

Different circumstances and events have leaded me to cross in the past months, and it is finally all coming together! I currently have my favourite bike mech starting to… Continue
