Did you like your Stroker Aces? I've really liked mine - - ran them for two seasons. I don't have personal experience with the Primes but Clayton at Hayes tells me that they are better than the Aces in every aspect and give up nothing to the Aces in ... more »

I corresponded with Micah Rice at USA Cycling again (not quite as snippy as last time) and got replies back both from him and Kelli Lusk. Here's what Kelli had to say: "Hi Doug – Thanks for sending your note back in response to Micah’s email. We are ... more »

Well, I got my e-mail from USAC recently reminding me to renew my license for the coming year. I decided to reply to that e-mail and vent my frustrations some, figuring that nobody there probably cared what I thought or would actually take the time to ... more »

I think they secretly wanted to split it up so that the XCers wouldn't have to race on real mountains with >gasp

Keep in mind, Kyle, that the current management of Schweitzer knows nothing about "the NORBA days" or running a National. The venue is stellar but they will need some organizational horsepower to pull it off. The NORBA Nats were brought there for three ... more »
