Don't worry about performance boost, it's not going to boost it, more like sustain it. On long rides I try to eat 300 cals and hour 4:1 ratio (the ratio isn't always perfect). Eat half a rice cake or bar about every 30 min. Stay away from things like gels and bloks unless you are racing. You don't particularly need to be eating that much for a 30-40 mile ride, maybe a bar or one rice cake and you should be ok. Drink a glass of chocolate milk after your ride, its a simple, cheap recovery drink.

Don't worry so much about the "science" of riding, just go out and have fun.

The guy who makes the videos is one of my good friends. I miss Tulsa. It was probably the most fun I have ever had so far racing bikes.

Here is a video of sundays race. The infamous "Cry Baby Hill." Best part was the crowed, so awesome.

Just picked up a couple of Conti Sprinters (spares) and valve extenders for $100. Not a bad deal, imo, and I'm liking my tubulars a lot.

I use sprinters on my tubies. They are great tires. Best bang for your buck tubular tire hands down.

Any of the cheaper conti tires. I ride a lot of miles so I usually just use whatever is cheapest on my training wheels. Most durable for the cheapest amount is what I usually go for.

These are very good, but they're pretty expensive. Look at the ultra's, they are way cheaper.

I acknowledge the skill it takes to ride in traffic like that, but I feel no remorse when guys who ride like that complain about getting doored or hit when they run red lights and ride like idiots.

Why would you buy a set of Carbon race tubulars and then decrease performance with that wide of a tire? Its a tubular, its going to be comfy with a 22-23mm as well.

I've been reading 25mm have less rolling resistance than a 23mm

Don't bother looking at the printed tread size, you actually have to inflate and measure them. For instance, I have a set of "23" vittoria tubulars, they measure to about 25.2. My "24" veloflex are more like 25 as well. Having ridden all three brands extensively I have to say the veloflex are the absolute best (but they are pricey)
If I was going for something less expensive I would get the kendas.

I stand corrected. From what I have been told up to this point is that 25mm is not more beneficial than 22mm or 23mm because of the size. Now I know how wrong that statement is.

So right now it looks like I'm probably going to end up living in south denver. I really wanted to get out to monterrey or socal but doesn't seem like those are going to work out.
On the positive side it is only like an hour from the USAC track. Hopefully when I go out there I can find a neighborhood that has decent training routes and access to the mountains.

Boo... I wanted to watch Berserker break some legs on socal, oh well! Good luck man, sounds like a decent set up as well.
