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!" :)

comment Can a steel fork be unbent?
I think this will depend on how bent they are. Are we talking 2 degrees or 200 degrees of an angle?

comment Bicycle Storage Indoors
I would guess that no, it doesn't hurt. There was a discussion on that here: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/4204/… and my bikes have been hanging on hooks like that for a few years without harm. My 2 mountain bikes are in the 24-26 pound range, and that isn't a whole lot of weight for the wheels to have to hold up, really.

comment What are the most effective exercises to improve stamina and speed on my cycle to/from work?
+1 for intervals. I got a heart rate monitor that can be programmed to do intervals, and will beep at you when your heart rate is too low during the 'on' part of the interval, or too high during the 'off' part. It was a big help.

I'll try to take a picture of my bike on the rack later today when I get home to give a better idea of what I mean...

comment Adjust reach on Ultegra ST-6510 levers?
Thanks for the info. I'll try playing with the position on the bars and see if I can make that work. I just got new cables anyway, so will be re-cabling the entire bike in the next couple days, so I'll have the bar tape off anyway. Perfect time to fiddle with the lever positions. The way they are now, with my hands in the drops, the pads of my middle and index finger touch the side of the brake lever, and just barely around the front. Its not hard to brake from the hoods, but i have to stretch my fingers to get them around the levers from the drops.

comment Are revolights a good idea?
+1 for the link. I'd never seen this before. Looks really interesting! That said, I'm not sure it would be "better" than a standard light setup, without any empirical evidence, or having seem it from the point of view of the rider and a car at distance.
