Randy Sherwood's Bio

My doctor told me recently that I better get in shape or he was going to put me on cholesterol medicine. So I started eating a little better, but exercising like a madman. I am working out 3 times a week and riding my new (new to me) Cannondale R5000 about 100 miles a week. In the first year I lowered my medical test scores enough so I don't need drugs. I have a wife and 3 daughters and we like water sports, stunt and traction kite flying, tent camping, and anything that gets us outdoors.

I am starting to find people to ride with here and I rode in my first bicycle event recently. The "Horrible Hundred" in Clermont, FL. It goes over the highest hill in Florida, 300 feet!!. Hard to believe, I know.

I have really enjoyed my interchangeable sunglasses. I use the light colored lens in the morning before the sun comes up and the darker ones for organized rides. The lighter ones keep the bugs out of my eyes. They are very comfortable and the sweat does not run down the lens. Best pair of sunglasses I have owned.

I eat these in the morning before a ride along with a banana. They sit well on my stomach, and in the advent of a longer ride, I carry one in my "bento box" to sustain my energy level. These don't give you the instant pick up of an energy drink, but seem to better sustain my energy throughout the ride. My favorites are the Blueberry Crisp, the Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, and the Chocolate Chip, which I don't see here.

This lube doesn't leave as much grime on the chain as some other lubes I have used, but if you have a problem with your chain, you better be carrying some surgical gloves in your saddle bag, because your hands will still be covered in grease after handling your chain, even with this lube. I have also noticed that this lube doesn't last as long on the chain, so you have to apply it more often. According to the instructions, that is a feature of this lube, as it sheds itself from your chain, it also sheds the dirt, making your components last longer. I would recommend this lube, but listen carefully to your drivetrain, it will tell you when it needs lubed again.

These are my first road pedals and they have worked flawlessly. The adjustable tension is perfect for beginners. Set them light and they are very easy to get in and out of. I have never had one of these unclip on me unless I was trying to unclip. The yellow cleat they come with have a little float so you don't have to be as exact on the cleat placement. Highly recommended.


UPDATE: After about 2,000 miles, the left pedal has developed a very annoying creak. I don't know what is causing it, the cleat against the pedal or something inside the pedal. I have tried lubing the joint where the pedal turns, but the bearings are sealed and not user serviceable. If all you get is 2,000 miles out of these pedals, I'm not sure I would recommend them.

These are a must have for your saddle bag. If your chain breaks, which mine just did at mile 147 of a 150 mile ride, you need one of these to fix it. I didn't have one, I used a regular pin, and my chain broke again in 2 miles. If you have a shimano 9 or 10 speed chain, you should not be without these!! Don't think about it, get them now!!
