comment What kind of bicycles do they ride in the Tour de France?
@Robert Korytnik: You're right, I was projecting from maybe 2007, when I remember some sprinters still used alu frames for their better stiffness. Edited.

How exactly do you propose unicycles can be faster than geared bikes? To hit 25 km/h on a large 28 inch wheel unicycle you'd have to pedal with cadence of about 180.

comment iPhone app to follow/navigate an imported .gpx
I have, actually. I am aware that there is a plethora of GPS logging apps, and a number of apps can import a track and show it on the map. On the other hand, there are car navigation apps. I'm looking for something that can combine these functionalities.

comment What height should drop handlebars be - relative to my saddle?
Higher bars are more comfortable only up to a point. Too upright a position places relatively more weight on the saddle. And while you can change hand positions to relieve stress on the hands, you cannot really change position on the saddle... This is one of the reason people who ride longer distances prefer their bars about level with the saddle; some a bit higher, some a bit lower. Also higher bars = more aero drag = less speed.
