    by Patrick Davis

    CycleOps Bike Trainer Replacement PartsTrainer season is here in the midwest. Temps are dropping and snow is looming in the near future. This doesn't mean cycling has to stop. It just means the next few months are filled with blasting tunes, movie watching, and fun trainer rides.

    Trainers are, for the most part, made to last forever. They have great warranties and, unless Mark Cavendish locks in, these things will get most riders through decades of riding. Over time, however, some parts might not work as great as when they were new.

  • Recommended Winter Bike Maintenance

    by Nathan Cline

    Nathan does winter bike maintenanceWinter is a great time of year to catch up on bike maintenance. As a racerly-type rider, I don't like to be without any particular bike for very long at all during peak season or make any big changes to my bikes. But in winter, I don't mind having major maintenance and upgrade projects done. In fact, it's a great idea to get overhaul work done now so once spring rolls around you'll be ready and confident.

    Let's avoid major mid-season issues or shop wait times and get on top of all those things that can prevent future wear and tear on your bike.

  • San Juan ITU Triathlon Pan American Cup: Alex Libin’s Race Report

    by Pro Triathlete Alex

    San Juan ITU Triathlon Pan American CupThe San Juan ITU Triathlon Pan American Cup was my final draft-legal race of the 2013 season. After not being able to race to the potential I believed I had the weekend before in Cozumel, I was eager to end my draft-legal season on a high note.
