The seat stays are the narrow tubes that connect from the rear drop out up to the seat tube. There rear break is mounted between the seat stays.

Rode my bike for the first time Friday and I did about 6 miles just to get a feel for it. Then Saturday morning I rode again and I did 24 miles! Didnt realize it was that far til I google map it and checked out the route I did. No wonder my legs felt jelly and I was so hungry after.

saweeet!

the first couple rides, don't worry so much about how long it takes your or your speed; concentrate on a good cadence and pedal, your endurance will come. For now, enjoy the ride and work on the technique

Thats pretty much what Im doing. I mean that 24 miles I did in 2 hours. So Im guessing I was just cruising on avg of 12 miles per hour? Hahaha!

So for people who rides long distance, do you guys just drink water through out the ride or do you guys drink something with calories? I heard that you need calories around the 1 hour mark of your ride. What have you guys been drinking? I've only used gatorade but I've heard of Heed and Accelerade (sp?!)

Water is good for rides that are about 1-2 hours long. If you are doing any riding with intensity (climbing, sprinting, etc) you definitely should drink something with calories or eating "bike food" (gels, shot blocks, chomps, cliff bars, etc). As for powder drink mixes I am a fan of HEED. I have also tried Accelerade, but I find it WAY too chalky and the flavors are terrible.

You definitely should experiment with the power mixes because some have more protein than others and can upset you stomach.

depends. how hot, how far, how hard, etc.

I'm fine with the appropriate meal before hand and water for under 30-40 miles. If the ride is longer than a couple of hours I'll have two waters and a gatorade. Gatorade becomes the cure-all when riders don't think they have enough energy to keep up with a ride.

I vote for HEED as well. It focuses less on sugar and calories, but more on electrolyte input. Its a powder that goes into water. I find powerade/gatorade very very sugary, I buy the G2 and its still very sweet. HEED is much nicer to drink.

I definitely agree with you on the high sugar/sweetness of Gatorade. HEED is definitely FTW
