  1. I guess Vos can’t win every race she enters after all. »

  1. Find it hard to believe I picked a winner, first time for everything! »

My first article on Velominati was to introduce one of my favorite cyclists, Eros Poli. I refered to him as a domestique on the Mercatone-Uno team. This faux pas was properly pointed out much later by @KaffeineKeiser, a commenter who suddenly surfaced and unfortunately submerged just as quickly, like Das Boot in the Straits of Gibraltar.*I do tak...

  1. @Gianni, Thank you for the article, I love the way you describe this type of rider, and yes it is the kind of rider I would love to be. »

Until the 70′s it was common to race on gravel roads, but the Paving of the Planet has led to nearly every road being graced by smooth, black tarmac. As is the case with most things, once we are shown the easy path, it is difficult to return to more arduous ways. So it is with gravel roads; we take measures to avoid unpaved roads and in doi...

  1. I found a pair of good legs just the other day, rode them hard for three hours and never felt like i was working, should have gone longer as I don’t remember where I put them and will probably not be able to find them on a day when it really matters. »

  1. This addiction we have is most noticeable during times of turmoil in our lives. During the last few months we sold our home and bought an under construction home back in the town we are from. Among all of the details (including trying to find employment) … »

  1. Great article, can’t really be said better than that,my VMH thinks that it proves we are all nuts so it must be good. @ Mikael, been there before, the older you are the longer to heal, but heal it will and you will be back in the land of the living once … »

While the rest of us where bickering over the style in which the finale of one of the most exciting editions of Milano-Sanremo played out, @Pedale.Forchetta was busy behind the finish line, living and breathing the reality of the race. He spent the day following the race to photograph the riders and tifosi and generously shares his story and photos...

  1. @Cyclops @cyclops being a 50′s guy myself I have the same desire to go to Italy and ride to the end of time and photos like these only increase the want. »

  1. Don’t see Cancellara or Gilbert on the start list so here goes, no Cav though he won’t make twice over Kemmelburg twice with the leaders. VSP PICKS: 1. EBH 2. Johan van Summerem 3. Thor 4. Lars Boom 5. Baden Cooke »

The Bike. It is the central tool in pursuit of our craft. A Velominatus meticulously maintains their bicycles and adorns them with the essential, yet minimal, accoutrement. The Rules specify the principles of good taste in configuration and setup of our machines, but within those principles lies almost infinite room for personal taste.It seems in s...

  1. @Ron @ Ron, the bars are Zipp Carbone @ Frank, amazingly accurate I am 5’11″, not so tall I won’t ride with pygmees on occasion. »

@Lister's posts:

  1. @Steampunk I have put some thought into this and perhaps it is better to live with the hope that possibly one day there could be a divine revelation and my VMH may have a desire to saddle up so I guess I agree with you. »

  2. @ Steampunk, my significant other quilts. She may ride a cruiser bike one day….maybe. »

  3. I submit the word Velominotte or VMN as in a significant other who does not cycle and therefore can never appreciate the bike, the rules or the logic in anything related to our participation in the sport. »

  1. So I managed to convince my velominotte (not a cyclist in any way) that it was a good idea to upgrade my number two steed otherwise it was in need of replacement. So here is the result, with only the stock seatpost left for your comments. »

  1. While I agree with a lot of the sentiment that has been posted, my only experience with spin classes have been the very epitome of V. You may scoff, but my bike on a stationary trainer in a class with no music being lead by an ex-pro rider (leahgoldstien…. »
