Default TBH Cycling Thread - 2018

Since 2015 or so we have had an annual TBH Cycling Thread. Over that time I have been surprised to see how many cyclists are on this site. We've got road bikers, mountain bikers and even a very avid uni-cyclist! (Hi Legdog!) I'm getting a late start this year - I just got my bike off the wall and took it to the shop for a tune-up. I have tried hard since the first of the year to get my legs in shape on the spin bike and with weights. Do you have any special goals or out-of-state rides planned? I will probably do my normal 4 rides per week and 5-6 charity rides through the summer. If I can get in good enough climbing shape I want to try the Davis Mountain Scenic Loop in the Fall. (that would be quite an accomplishment for me)

For those new to this thread, we have a TBH group on Strava you need to join.

I am cycling over here right now. I will be doing triathlons again when I get home, as well as mountain bike and road racing. I have lost 13 pounds already.

Riding with the Pearland Cycle Club this Saturday. Really tuning up for the CB&I Tri in the Woodlands in May so swimming and running too. I really prefer shorter distances at a faster pace than extended rides. That said, the Ft. Davis Loop looks cool and I do have mounts to pickup this fall and could do both!

It will be interesting to see cause of death - I haven't heard anything about autopsy results. It may just have been an undetected heart condition. However back in the early days of doping with EPO (late 80's-early 90's) a couple of dozen European riders died of heart failure until they figured out how much you could take to improve performance without killing yourself.

I’ve got a easy 30mi ride planned this afternoon. I’ve decided that I’m going to do the Memorial Hermann Ironman in The Woodlands next year so I need to get my bike and run endurance up to par.

I remember when my sister was a junior in college she was at a basketball game and the center who was 20 had a heart attack and died on the free throw line. If I remember correctly it was cardiac arrest caused by a small hole in his heart. He was such an elite athlete his whole life it was never detected

I hope this guy didnít die from PED use but epo and anavar are still pretty prevelant from my understanding

I have started ordering parts for a full suspension carbon fiber build. It will be a 27.5/650B bike, on a Boost frame, with 130mm of travel. It is too much fun putting parts together on a custom build.

I did that with my last road bike. Built it over a year and was really happy with it till my wife asked what the total of the build was... she still doesnít know the real number. I miss that bike

I need to get a mtn bike again but the trinity trail here in FW has been good lately for my roadie and the short rides Iíve been doing

My Look was my favorite bike I've been on, I regret selling it. Here is the newer version of what I had

http://playtridallas.bikesit.com/a/r...-2-7/110143731

It's like a bow, do your research but also take time to ride a couple different models/brands at a good bike shop so you get one that is comfortable.

those are all in the price range we talked about before. Make sure you budget in shoes, pedals and some riding gear

Great thread! Just keep peddling guys, keep peddling!!

I ride a Rocky Mountain Vertex 930 Hardtail, and have a great time with my Son and others hitting the MTB trails around DFW.

I did NorthShore yesterday right at 20 miles of single track with some cool technical aspects on the West end, then today I did 3 laps a Quanah Hill and right at 21 miles.

My last TMBRA XC Race is this coming weekend at Warda, TX then I will shift all of my focus to the "24 hours in the Canyon" which is a 24hr endurance race that raises money for a Cancer Charity that helps Cancer Survivor's and their Families and takes place June 2nd and 3rd in Palo Duro Canyon. If anyone would like to make a donation to the charity shoot me a PM and I'll point you in the right way, every dollar counts and is for a good cause.

I lost my Father to Cancer on May 4th just a few days before his 75th birthday, this race is personal..


Just get out and Ride, keep peddling, be safe and have fun.

Austin has 40 participating fueling stations for tomorrow.
Free breakfast, free coffee, free bike repairs.

Any thoughts on the Motobecane's from Bike's Direct? I'm really wanting to get into cycling but even the entry level road bikes from major manufacturer's are $700+. Was hoping not to commit that much cash as I'm new to cycling. Thanks!

I would considered a used bike. For $700 or less you will be able to find a good one that sold for $1,000+ just a few years ago. There are usually a lot of them on craigslist.

I'll keep an eye out. Any recommendations on specific brands or models? Anything to stay away from? Ran my first half marathon back in March and am really wanting to try a triathlon. Decent road bike is all I'm looking for though, nothing tri specific. Thanks!

Absolutely nothing wrong with them. My buddy had one and put over 3k miles on his in 2 years and did 5 or 6 Olympic triathlons and a 70.3 with zero issue. He upgraded this year. Always said it was good for the money, it’s not going to be as smooth as a $2k bike but it doesn’t cost near that either.

Check out the Fuji sport of series also.


Go down and talk to the folks at PlayTri, it’s the best multi sport store in dfw

For used bikes just remember if you buy from CL is around $100 for a tune up which I would make sure to do. Most bike shops have used bikes that have already been checked over and their prices arenít necessarily firm.i know PlayTri, Bicycles Inc, Richardson Bike Shop have em, more good shops will have used bikes that people traded in

How many Strava premium peeps use Beacon or Garmin live track as a safety feature?

After Breaking 3 ribs in one crash and my neck (c3/c4) in another last year , I find it nice to know if I eat it hard someone might come and find me lol..

Beacon is pretty cool.

I've used Beacon in the past and do if I only have my phone on me.
I use the Lezyne equivalent (can't remember what it's called), which isn't as slick an interface as Beacon on her end but does include all my data (HR, power, speed, etc.) so at least she can tell my heart is still beating!
I know that the Garmin units have a crash detection and alert feature that sounds pretty cool.

In other cycling news I won the State Championship jersey in my category (Open SS) and am super stoked about that!!
It was a goal I set for the year and have been working hard at all season (8-race points series).
