    Interesting reading if nothing else. Let me know what the two of you think. The last reference is for a sight that has a vested interest in having us "buy-in" to what they are saying. But, as a man of science, I am interested in diving deeper into the science. They make some other very good points- 30% variation in rider heights, 30% variation in frame sizes, 6% variation is crank sizes. Happy skying. :)

    Thanks for the Snowy photo... very nice.

    I recently came across a couple of articles I thought you might find interesting, probably of more value for your wife, given the way she trains and competes.

    "Too much exercise can kill you. The Haywire Heart is the first book to examine heart conditions in athletes. Intended for anyone who competes in endurance sports like cycling, triathlon, running races of all distances, and cross-country skiing, The Haywire Heart presents the evidence that going too hard or too long can damage your heart forever. You’ll find what to watch out for, what to do about it, and how to protect your heart so you can enjoy the sports you love for years to come. Read more here:

    And, from this site considering efficiency- If a rider can improve efficiency then they can produce more power for the same effort (oxygen consumption). The secret is shorter cranks.

    @TrikesterHal - Mike from Michigan here. Just wanted to let you know I just purchased a Catrike 559. I got a steal of a deal... 2016 Catrike 559 with a Rohloff Speed Hub and a Schlumfp High Speed Drive, 3-fenders, Power Grips on std pedals, wrists rests, padded seat,
    dual mirrors, headrest, twist shifters, and a rear rack, all in excellent shape and for just $2600. I have to drive to Boston next week to pick it up.

    So, I couldn't yet afford a Dumont (although I still want one), but what can you tell me about the 559 that I need to know and/or might like to know. I am thinking about changing out the Schwalbe Marathon Racer's that come stock for either Kenda Flames or Schwalbe Big Apples and keep them minimally aired so as to provide passive suspension. Do you think that's a good idea? What else would you suggest I consider?

    Please call me as I have lost your phone number. If we head to Tucson maybe we can ride together. Reach me (9AM-11PM) at: 517-721-1016 home or 269-986-8419 cell.

    The reason why I asked "how long..." is because I have a WizWheelz 3.4 trike with a 16 inch boom and I need an 18 inch or longer boom. As to whether they will fit the other, I can't be sure.
