    The cycling industry - that well known bastion of appropriately salaried jobs. Where people's utility companies and landlords accept clothing allowances and staff discounts as payment.

    Wednesday morning rides. You have to make that time back, right? Or is it a 4.5 day week?

    I find the Trailcross a bit too flexy which tires my feet out. I do like the grip and ventilation though.

    I probably should have indicated sarcasm for the first line.

    Tl,dr - why on earth is your friend fat when they could be thin if they tried harder?

    Society assuming thin is the norm and that if someone exists in a bigger/fat body they do so because of a lack of will power, lack of discipline, and lazyness and that thin people are determined, disciplined and hard working makes no sense.

    Body size is just body size - it tells you nothing about a person's health status, work ethic, discipline, how much exercise they do, etc.

    Why does exercise have to result in weight loss, can't we just enjoy it rather than doing it to put ourselves in to a calorie defecit?

    I had some coaching recently and kept getting to told to straighten my legs more so that I was riding in a more neutral position (not hanging off the back).

    I think Yoann Barelli's explanation of what/ why/ how of bike stance on new geometry is very clear from about 3.45 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wu9PNsCJ­oS8

    .

    edit: (my coaching was not from Yoann Barelli!)

    It was years ago now, but similar experience of Belem being rammed. I also didn't think they were particularly special - pretty sure we had better elsewhere though I can't remember where. But I was far more interested in Azeitão cheese that I'd never heard of before and made my best effort to make up for 3 and bit decades of not having known about it to be able to seek it out to eat. Cheese > custard tarts.

    Looks like Specialized have two jackets with Polartec Alpha for women - one for road, one for trail. The road one is only available in black. Cafe du Cycliste have a few insulated cycling jackets for women but don't say what the insulation is.
