With the new RoadBikeReview format you have to do a lot more clicking, thus more more page loads and banner ads. This will block the annoying ads and improve page download times:

Edit the c:\windows\hosts file. (Hosts has no file extention)
Add this line:

127.0.0.1 spinbox.consumerreview.com

Vola! Faster page load times and no more ads!

Open notepad first, then drag the hosts file from Explorer and drop it on notepad.
