Re: Information on cooking oils?

Actually, according to the table in Wikipedia, coconut oil has a lower smoke point than most other oils. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooking_oil" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I think that's just for the extra-virgin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoke_point" onclick="window.open(t...

Re: Information on cooking oils?

My understanding is that a plant-based saturated fat is not damaging to the body the way animal-based saturated fat can be, which is why coconut oil is not a health risk when used in moderation. This is my understanding as well. And it is all about moderation, you will hear/read that people are sla...

And here I was looking to get a new bike and you guys just squashed the story I was going to give my husband :wink: . Now to look into wetsuits!

Re: Adidas

Has anyone got any shipping info? It usually would have shipped by now. Since it has not I feel like I should have not done this.... Do you ever order things online?

Re: Compression sock bruising?

I agree that folding them is probably the issue.

Unfortunately with a knit, cutting it off is only going to cause more problems as there is no finish and they will run/unravel. Is there a way you can not pull them up quite so high without compromising how the sock sits on the rest of your leg?

Re: Going price for a used Garmin 305?

I agree with ngcaper and orleansrunner. My 305 has been a workhorse, it's survived the washing machine and the lake and all sorts of stuff on the bike. The bike mount and the wrist strap ROCK. When it dies I want another 305 and I still don't understand why they discontinued it. I have a 305 as wel...

Re: Buying a Bike

With F.I.S.T. all of the angles are measured on a specific fit bike, and can be done for both tri and road (some major fit differences). Those angles and measurements are then translated to several bike options (along with the size you need) that fit those measurements. As many manufacturers are als...

Re: Buying a Bike

second on getting fit. If you can, find someone who is F.I.S.T. certified. It may cost $200, but they should give you several options/brands of bikes, and will apply the cost of the fit to a bike you buy from the shop. That's what we do anyhow. Get yourself a nice entry level (at least) road bike. F...

Developing an appreciation for the classics...

As much as I am surrounded (for 8-16 hours a week) by a bunch of shiny (or matte finish) paint jobs, race wheels and carbon, I have developed a great appreciation for "more mature" road bikes. Our bike mechanic is an avid collector. He has a couple of bikes dating back to the late 1800's, ...

I saw very little humility in the 20 minutes or so I could actually stomach. Blame transfer: a lot of "we"... who the heck is "we"??? Insincerity: Emma Watson deserves way more than "I owe her an apology" And probably a lot more in the 40 minutes I couldn't bother with.
