comment Is there such a thing as frame failure?
Just a note on the failure of carbon frames... My friend / team-mate broke his carbon framed mtn bike clean in half during a race. We were wondering why his lap was taking so long, when here he comes jogging out of the woods with his bike over his shoulders. Broken in 1/2, the 2 sides just held together by the cables. The manufacturer gave him a replacement frame in the end, but it does happen!

comment Long sleeve vs. short sleeve jersey
+1. I too progress from short-sleeve to adding arm warmers, or a long-sleeve base-layer with a short-sleeve jersey over it. Arm warmers are cheaper and more versatile, since jerseys tend to be a bit pricey.

Retrobike is cool. There needs to be a US version!

comment Practical benefits of expensive jockey wheels?
I'd never heard the term "jockey wheels" before, but eventually realized they are what I usually call "derailleur pulleys". Figured I would leave this note here for anyone else that gets the regional terminology differences confused.

comment Why should I not coast while training (even after intervals)?
haha, that's right... "Sorry officer, I couldn't stop for that light... if I did, I might cramp up and fall over in the middle of the intersection!" :)
