I got my shit the other day. A 21.5 inch frame is fucking huge. I love it.

How is a bike tune-up a scam? Not everyone knows the ins and outs of bikes. Especially not these days with all the high-tech components they have on them. Gears? How do they work? Fuck if I know.

I love riding bikes, I just got into it a few months ago. At work I pull one of those bike carts you can harness 2 kids in and pull them through chester springs... Thats an extra 100 lbs Im pullin behind me but I have super strong leg muscles from riding horses so it doesnt bother me at all. They love it, I ride to every horse farm in the town and we feed them all carrots. They just bought new bikes and gave me their old ones but I never have time at home... and I have all the time in the world at work so it works out.

i found the weight training routine that Lance Armstrong was using during his off seasons while he was on his Tour De France streak. I'll post it tomorrow since its on my work computer. Talk about powerhousing the legs. I did it the other night and my ass hurt.

This is the off season weight training that Armstrong did. He did this two or three times a week and on non-weight days he'd ride 100-150 miles. I believe he dropped this routine about eight weeks out from start of season and went with 1 day of circuit weight training and varied his cycling to work specifics like sprints, hills, and endurance.
