  1. Sorry to be a grammar nazi, but cyclists should know the effect/affect distinction.

  2. Last June I made the decision and purchased a road bike. During that time I’ve been looking to increase my knowledge about various things to improve my performance. I recently started listening to this podcast and it provides answers to a lot of the fundamental question I have. Not to mention the 3 of you provide meaningful examples and humer to keep me tuned in. It seems whenever I listen to this time flies by. I say this because my time on the trainer used to take forever but not anymore.

    Keep up the great work!!!
