I was wondering if all of you train on the bikes that you race with (theory being you need to get used to what you're going to race on) or do you have a second trainer bike to take up the beating and possible crashes?

I guess that makes them training wheels ;-)!

This year I both raced and trained on my Cannondale, but over the winter I will be acquiring (through my team) 2 Trek's for training and racing. It's just too much of a worry damaging your best girl.

I have a training bike and racing bike. They are set up identically in terms of components and geometry. One's steel (training bike) and one's aluminum. The primary reason for the steel training bike is for use in the trainer. After the racing season starts though, I ride the race bike exclusively (unless I have to ride the trainer). During the winter I ride the steel bike though the racing bike may make an occasional appearance.

Comments such as these :

"Even before the recommendation was issued, the Young Conservatives of Texas called it nutty" and a waste of taxpayer funds."

" "It is obvious that I-35, with its endless stream of speeding cars and 18-wheelers, is no place for pedestrians and cyclists," spokesman Marc Levin said. "

are from people that just don't understand that there is a need to not been in car to get to places.

Conservatives will have us get run over on city streets and Liberals will us imprisoned and fined for riding anything that resembles a trail.... What a world..
