comment Credibility of my Bike fit
The headache and muscle cramps could be attributed to dehydration and salt loss. Do you notice the symptoms more if you ride in hot weather (when you sweat more)? It might be worth considering increasing your fluid consumption and perhaps using an electrolyte drink.

Remember to replace the chain at the same time as the cassette!

comment British Cycling Attire
I feel it is important to differentiate what you refer to as British Cycling from britishcycling.org.uk

comment Is it acceptable to cycle towards the centre of the lane on blind corners?
@Paul think.direct.gov.uk/cycling.html You should be taking the primary position on all narrow roads. This is nothing to do with US being wider.

comment New commuting road bike. Wishlist: discs & electronic gears
@Roaders - I commute about 100 miles/week and occasionally ride with a club on Sundays. If you're getting through a chain in 2 or 3 months then something is wrong. Either its the wrong size or not fitted correctly or never cleaned. As stib says, 5000-8000 km is easily achievable.

comment What supplies do riders cary on century sportives and how do they carry it?
Why would you take your passport? Why would you take ID? There's no need. He'll have a rider number to identify him to the organisers.

Luckily there are changing and showers at my workplace.
