    No shit. I should grab a couple more pairs of cleats - the pedals I have right now (both sets, actually - I've got them on my old MTB too) are fine, and they're built like tanks - no moving parts, so nothing to wear out (aside from cleats). Are they replacing them with something? I've been meaning to grab their road pedals anyway, but especially if these get put on sale when they discontinue them, they're absolutely AWESOME pedals. No moving parts in the cleat or the pedal, fully floating, and they're awesome at handling all the mud you can throw at them. It's actually kind of amazing, when you get right down to it, that the fundamental design hasn't changed in like 15 or 20 years, lol.

    Do they make a trainer like the one Chris described that works with a MTB? I've got my old rigid frame '95 GT that I would totally turn into my winter trainer.

    If you have QR skewers or 12mm thru-axles on the old sled, the Kinetic may work with it yeah.

    Hmm, I'm gonna have to figure out what I have, then, because there is one on CL for $175 right now. I'm digging your idea of loading routes and letting it change the resistance.

    The Kinetic doesn't change resistance, it's constant. It's considered a "dumb" trainer. That's why it's not $1500.

    I picked up the exact saddle Chris recommended about two months back, and it's the goods.

    What kind of razor do you recommend for shaving your legs for minimizing air resistance?

    Don't deny it Quigs, I know how you bikers operate.

    I pour disc brake fluid on my legs and light them on fire. Cauterized pores are more aero, less wind drag.
