If you are a serious regular cyclist, you need to focus on aerodynamics and aero wheels, two things that are really important to cycling on the flat earth we ride.

Wheels and Tires
What tires should I get? It seems like a pretty easy question. Actually, it’s not. In addition to what tire to get, what width, what tube and what pressure are all questions I’m hearing.
“Let’s take this right hand turn,” I thought to myself. Signal. Turn. “Back wheel is sliding out. Bring her back in. Agghhhh, I’m going to lose it. *!@#.”
With the road bike world moving to bikes with disc brakes, much of what we know and how we think about road cycling will change.
If you’ve heard someone you trust tell you “the first upgrade you should make to your bike is to get some better wheels”, there’s a good reason for it.
I love to climb. A lot of road cyclists do. Climbing tests your strength, your fitness, and your will. Climbing can bring you to places less traveled, cool mountain air and away from the traffic of life.
Groupsets and Components
In this piece, I’ll give you my design, product and performance evaluations and my purchase recommendations for disc brake components.
“Are you still riding that 53/39?” my training buddy asked me. “You’re too old to be turning cranks that big.”
If 2014 was the season most bike manufacturers dipped their toes in the road disc bike waters, 2015 looks to be the year many are in up to their waist.
While the debates about road bikes equipped with disc brakes are far from over, I believe it’s now clear that these bikes will soon become the predominant type sold to road cycling enthusiasts.
Where to Get Your Cycling Gear
While most of us who live in the United States are saying a few words of thanks between mouthfuls of turkey and eyefuls of football
It’s that time of year when my e-mail box is flooded with “deals” on what seems like every category of cycling gear. Perhaps it’s
While In The Know Cycling’s motto is “What cycling gear to get next and where to get it,” most of what I write about is the “What cycling gear to get” part. It’s pretty clear that you also care about the “where to get it” part too.
More and more serious cyclists are shopping online these days. This post tells you which online stores I have found are the best and why.
Here’s answers to why road cyclists should use a power meter, how to train with one, when it’s right to get in and whether you need the latest features.
What happened at these shows doesn’t change the current power meter product landscape nor should it for another 6 to 12 months.
With Eurobike 2014 now complete, there are a couple footnotes to make to The Best Power Meter For Road Cycling review published in July and August.
In Part 2 of this review to find the best power meter for road cycling, I’ll show you what power meters (PM) will cost you and which is best for the combination of bikes, wheels and rings you use now or may add.
While I started with a ‘peloton’ of established beliefs about gear shaped largely by the media and supplier ‘bosses’ of the cycling industry, I’ve begun to drop some of them in favor of several ‘breakaway’ views from my perspective as a road cycling enthusiast.
Cycling enthusiasts want to ride faster on our bikes. It’s what makes us who we are. In this post I’ll tell you how the right cycling gear and kit can help you ride faster.
No matter how fast I go, I want to ride my bike faster. Don’t you? Here are the top 6 ways to do it and it doesn’t require you to spend a dime on new gear.
It happens around this time each year but is focused on what’s happening all the time. More than ever you take to the roads, enlivening
