Oh my Gawd, I ride like Lance!(28 posts)

Sort-of. I was reading Bicycling Mag's May issue (no, it's not mine, I just borrowed it, REALLY!), and the interview with LA, and found out that he prefers a 23t cassette, and said that he should probably have a 25! I have a 25! Love spinning up those hills. I rarely stand. I use a 175mm crank;he does too! The similarities are just too overwhelming! :-)

Amen, bro. I cancelled my subscription about 3 issues after they changed their format a couple of years ago.

No Trek-trash for me. A nice bright yellow-black Look kg271 and Specialized helmet.

Ok...I sense there is some issues with Bicycling. I'm just a reader. Offhand I think it's a good mag, humorous, but yes, inundated with manufacturer's points of view. But I can't say that I've found any mag that hasn't been like that...that's one of the main reasons I watch this forum.

So what's the beef with Bicycling?
Let's see...look271

No (or rare) substantial, informative, articles. Caters to those of you who have attention-spans of 3 yr olds. Should I go on? Try finding a mag like Cycling +, Cyclesport, or even Velonews. These are written by people who can write sentances rather than 5 word "Blurbs". Other than that, it's a good mag.

go to your library and check out a copy of Bicycling from 10 years ago and compare to today's content/format. I think that should answer your question. There are subtle differences like articles longer than a page, complete sentences, in-depth reviews and technical articles, more text than ads...

Apr 2, 2001 6:24 PM
im not really a fan of his, from what ive seen he is known to be cocky as can be and he's deffinately not the most interesting character in the races...its wierd that the US has this champion and many of us riders dont seem to dig him....has he ever been on the board...did lemond get this or is it just lance

In my day we didn't use real names for that expression,
just hotsie-totsie.

"That Wilma, she's a real hotsie-totsie!"

Today got to look it up or rely on some one "in the know".

Poor Freds ... what they need ...Humma Hah

... Every guy named Fred in the cycling world has my sympathy. What they really need is for someone named Fred to win the TDF.

Of course, then they'll need a new name and I'll ride by on the cruiser and they'll see "TOM" on the license plate ...
how about...LOL!
