comment What is the point of pedal straps?
The "freewheel" cranks are called Power Cranks and have a one-way ratcheting mechanism. Your legs move independently with them. Most people I know use them for maybe a year before giving up on them.

Power meters are awesome. You'll get much more out of spending money on that vs. some fancy carbon bike :)

Not at all. I would have done this myself, but I had no idea how to do this!

comment What do you do to cure road rash more quickly after a crash?
Thanks! I wound up using gel bandages (Spenco Second Skin) as well. On the first night, it slipped a bit while I slept and I found that the part that was left exposed to air healed much less than the parts that were covered.

The rash on my arms and shoulder were dressed using Tegaderm. The worst part was on the right side of my face which they advised to keep uncovered. The internet disagreed with this advice so I wound up using Spenco Second Skin gel bandages. They really made a large difference in healing.
