Want to Buy - 52 cm Road Bike
Category: Technical

Gary, before you assume a size, I HIGHLY recommend either getting a professional fitting ($200'ish at Lutherville) or at a minimum taking ALL of her measurments per the instructions at the website where they have an EXCELLENT fit calculator.  In my experience getting a proper fit, dialed in, has so much to do with cycling that it can be the difference between really enjoying it and just being a casual rider.

BTW, they aren't kidding... follow ALL of the measuring instructions exactly (sock feet, 1" book binding, etc.) and take each measurment three times and average the results before you plug in each piece of the 9 part (I think) puzzle.  Good luck.

Very interesting and current article if you are considering traveling with a bicycle via domestic airline. … +for+Bikes

Of course, I added my lengthy comment at the end!

I'm sorry that your volunteerisim (sp?) was clearly slapped down so violently.  What we need are MORE people agreeing to "lead" rides or post ride "meet-ups" not discouraging it.  I almost don't want to ask this but it seems to me that a whole lot of us have used BBCTalk and other list-serves to post "unofficial" or "impromptu" rides when we are going out for a ride and sometimes other's may want join for company.

Have we reached the point where any ride posted on the ride schedule has to become "official" with all the pomp and circumstance with a sign-in sheet?  Are we still OK if a ride is just posted in the forum and not put on the schedule?  Seems we are at odds with the purpose and goals of our "community."  What do we call ten lawyers at.....a good start.

Is there a way to get a daily digest of ALL subscribed forums?
Category: Social

OK, OK, I know, I should have moved over here earlier! I just went to each forum and subscribed to each (don't want to miss anything) but am now living in abject fear of many, many emails each day instead of my old choice of ONE overnight summary and I could decide if I wanted to read one, or log into "Talk" and read everything.

So Will, is it possible with this template or by programming to allow each user to not only subscribe to the forums they desire to see postings in (or perhaps subscribe to a single unified "All" forum) and ALSO to be able to select a single, once-per-day, summary of what has been posted to make BBC only one email per day (like a prompt) instead of potentially getting tens of emails clogging up our inboxes?
