  1. @bdicta Just getting clarification for some friends here in Colorado.  One guy wanted to make a sticker/decal for the riding group in our neighborhood, so I needed to get clarification if it was truly a sticker or a decal before I decided to chastise him … »

  2. Acetone, I use it on my carbon wheels.  Try it, you may like it.  But use in ventilited area or you may do some brain damage »

The Ride. It is the cathedral of our sport, where we worship at the altar of the Man with the Hammer. It is the end to our means. Indeed, The Bike may be the central tool to our sport, but to turn the pedals is to experience the sensation of freedom, of flight. It is all for The Ride.The world is overflowing with small, twisty roads that capture ou...

  1. Oh, and I got to ride with Eddy too, Crushed the poor old thing though on the cobbled bergs.  He’s a tad bit batty these days too, maybe from all that cannibal stuff…… »

  1. Water bottles; excuse me bidons can exceptions be made for using them from a cross continential tour.  For instance using a Grinta bidon in the USA?  Or a team bidon you swagged from the side of a race?  Or a sportif ride directly assocated with a classic… »

The Velominati have our own set of nicknames and terms which have developed over time through posts and correspondence. Some of these are names of landmarks or terms in cycling; others are nicknames for some of the riders in the pro peloton. While not intended to be offensive or derogatory, the nicknames in the list represent the riders’ pe...

  1. I would like to suggest a term.  Boner Stem: Any stem with a rise of more than level with the ground.  Should never be used on any race bike, no one over the age of 18 or younger than 50 can be caught riding a bike with a “boner” stem.  Can be used for ol… »

Cogals (pronounce it correctly: kog-al) are meetings of like-minded misfits brought together by the promise of beer, preceded by a bike ride. Cogals are free, open to all, organized by our fellow Velominati and are always followed by consumption of post-ride recovery ales and merriment. These are gatherings of unbridled observance of Rule #4...
