since my Continental GP tires with a reflective strip are not available
anymore (and the new GP 5000 tires don't offer them), I'm looking for a
way to tape or paint a white reflective strip on a bike tire...kind of like
a white wall, but for the purpose of making me on my bike more visible to motorists.   I've tried using white reflective tape, but it doesn't stick
very well and it's messy.

Does anyone know if there is a simple way to do this, or if there is a shop
in our area that does this as a business?  Please feel free to respond here
on the forum in case other riders have the same question, or let me know
via my email, billc_gary@prodigy.net.

Thanks,

Anyone have any info on road conditions at Columbia Gateway?  If much of the 2 mile circuit is wet with snow melt or covered with salt, I won't bother to clean my bike after my ride today.  OR...it could be clean and dry all the way around, in which case you should come to the gateway and ride with me!!

Thanks for any information,

Hey everyone, Josh at Team BBC emailed me recently to tell me the Team BBC Clothing store will remain open for another week.  If you are still interested in Team BBC cycling gear, contact me via email and I'll pass on the link to the Team BBC store.

Has anyone come across information on whether or not Bike Virginia 2021 will happen? The latest blog on the BV website is from March this year.  They may be holding out until they have a better guess as to how widely available the COVID vaccine will be by mid June 2021. Maybe it has been 'postponed' until 2022?

I have a 3T Ergonova carbon handlebar for sale. It measures 40cm center to center at the ends of the bar and 38.5 CM between the centers of the hoods where the STI are mounted. The stem clamp is standard 31.8 mm.  I bought it thinking it would measure 40CM between the hoods, so it is a little too small for me.  In 'like-new' condition.

$120.00 or best offer

For sale, a 56CM CANNONDALE SYNAPSE semi-compact carbon fiber ROAD BIKE FRAME. 

Here are measurements:

  horizontal Top Tube 56 CM
  seat tube (CT)      53 CM
  head tube           18 CM
  wheelbase           100.9 CM
  seat tube angle     73.5
  head tube angle     72.5
  stack               58.0 CM
  reach               38.7 CM

The frame comes with a BB30 bottom bracket shell, but I installed adapters for a
standard threaded bottom bracket which I will leave in the frame...so you can use a threaded BB or remove the adapters and use BB30.   

Included in the sale is the SYNAPSE FRAME AND FORK, HEADSET, SEAT POST, THREADED BB ADAPTERS and an extra CANNONDALE SEAT POST and SEAT TUBE COLLAR. 

The frame is in excellent condition, has never been raced or crashed. I will leave it built up so anyone interested can take it for a test ride to make sure it is a comfortable fit.  I have photos of the frame and a screen shot of the frame geometry chart which I can email to you if you're interested.   

$650.00 or best offer, contact me at billc_gary@prodigy.net

I rode through there today, and I asked the work people if bikes would be
allowed through while the actual repairs were in progress. They said 'sure,
bikes will be able to pass through while we're working on this thing'.
