Ya know, for all the hype and advertising that goes on around all those kinds of trainers I'm not really sure they would be any LESS boring than an hour on my old bike that's slapped on a cheapo fluid trainer, down in the basement. I could be wrong though. In any case, that Livestrong thing sure looks like a well put together spinner. I really get a kick out of the ad's for the TDF trainer. Corny as hell. "Just like riding the tour...". Ya, right.

They re not for cyclists though Dennis they re for gym bunnies or old women

Yes you can achieve the same with a TT and a Sufferfest vid, but most people don't have that option

When they make the film, there's going to be enough content for a trilogy

Pfffft - Gollum is a small, bouncy creature, described by the Orcs as "rather like a spider himself, or perhaps like a starved frog", strained facial expressions, obsessed with a small, yellow historical artefact

Has to be Tommy Voeckler.

Sorry, just a note on gym bunnies, some are very attractive ladies and reaching your VO2 Threshold next to one of these ladies is a darn site better than staring at a garage wall, as I'll be doing later.

Just puzzled about LA and Livestrong is who gets the profits from these exercise bikes?? I guess and presume the charity gets the dollars?? I think that's the problem with LA and Livestrong is where one ends and the other begins.

For an award-winning journalist, that is an extremely "clunky" article - there's no flow to the writing at all.

I love reading those old articles and watching old videos. There's so much innuendo which amuses me now - it's amazing it wasn't so apparent at the time.

The same could be said for the dining room, which has gorgeous deep blueberry Venetian plaster walls that “took four or five tries to get right,” he recalls. “The poor guys had to keep coming back. After trying several shades—we still weren’t happy—we finally tried one that had the right depth of color. When that dried, everyone said, ‘Bingo! That’s it!’ Lastly, when we put up Ed Ruscha’s lithograph, I thought, That’s perfect”—in more ways than one, since its message, “Safe and Effective Medication,” is particularly dear to the homeowner’s heart.

Lance has his honorary degree revoked: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/uni ... 63723.html

I bet there'll be a twitpic of him standing next to it any time now.

Interestingly enough, Robert Mugabe and Jimmy Savile also had honorary degrees removed recently. That's some club!
