Pet Peeve #1

Posted on May 2, 2013

WEARING TEAM KIT ARM WARMERS ON THE WRONG ARMS The thing that irks me and I tell guys all the time… “You are wearing your team kits arm warmers on the wrong arm. Inevitably, 1/2 of the cyclists out there have the warmers on the wrong arms so the sponsors name is upside down when riding. PEOPLE, CHECK YOUR ARM WARMERS for correct positioning of your sponsors...

Recovery Pulse vs Resting Pulse Rate

Posted on May 1, 2013

From Dr. Gabe Mirkin’s Fitness and Health E-Zine April 28, 2013 High Resting Heart Rate Increases Death Risk in Healthy People The Copenhagen Male Study followed the health of 3000 men for 16 years and found that the higher the resting heart rate, the more likely that person is to die (Heart, Apr 17, 2013). Those who had lower resting heart rates and did not exercise still lived longer than those who had higher resting heart rates, even if they exercised. The authors conclude: “This suggests that a high resting heart rate is not a mere marker of poor physical fitness, it is an independent risk factor for premature death.” The authors adjusted results for heart attack risk factors such as smoking, obesity and physical fitness. Compared to a resting heart rate of 50 beats per minute, a resting heart rate of • 71 to 80 beats/min was associated with a 50 percent increased risk of death during the study period, • 81 to 90 beats/min was associated with a 100 percent increased risk, and • over 90 beats/min...

SBG-32 Bike Grease

Posted on Apr 29, 2013

For the past several years, I have been researching and testing greases for use in re-building/re-lubing bike bearings, lubricating cables, nuts & bolts. Below is a recent write up that I completed for an on-line bicycle testing/product evaluation newsletter that discusses this grease as well its testing. To summarize, this specially formulated grease performs so well that I recently received a reply from Wayne Stetina (Shimano) as to how this grease performs. Even though he cannot officially endorse this product without Shimano Japan certifying and authorizing this grease, he does mention that he prefers it in his own wheels. This seems to be the thinnest grease you can get before it turns to oil.  But that doesn’t seem to negatively impact durability.  I have personally inspected Rick’s wheels & can confirm what he tells you about his mileage & wear test results.  I can’t personally or officially endorse it before I get approval from Shimano Japan, however I do prefer riding it in my own DA wheels, & have not experienced any wear related failures with this grease or...
