    Thanks for the comment about water loss and glycogen stores being released. I always wondered what was going on when i lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time

    Thanks for your comment on my blog about ketogenic diets for performance. From my own, very limited, experience it seems that once the human body is keto-adapted that the body uses fat before muscle. I was able to gain some muscle with fairly minimal strength training on about 50 grams of carbs and no more than 70-80 grams of protein/day. I'm hoping to do a little more over the next three months to see if I can improve my body composition. The book indicates that gaining muscle on a ketogenic diet is not only possible but potentially easier.

    Thanks for your comment on my "Breathing Test and Running" blog. I am very concerned about my in ability to run and bike well. I am doing OK. But my ability to really hit it hard is very limited.

    Thanks, Bruce

    Thanks for reading my "HAPE and Asthma" blog. I have really gained a lot of confidence with my mountain bike riding lately. My personal "Mangled Mountain" trail system has really let me experiment with the edge of the envelope.

    Little Cam is a well balanced machine. It was only after installing a bike computer that I realized the speed that Little Cam could generate on curves.

    30 mph is a bit faster than I really intended but the trail had some nice banks and Little Cam was flowing so well.

    Keep on riding!

    Your comment on my "Asthma and Bike Brakes" brought a smile to my face. Sometimes I think I am crazy. I bought an entry-level Specialized Camber and proceeded to upgrade it well past the higher-end Camber models.

    It is always better to buy the best bike you can afford. In retrospect, the Giant Trance 0 would have been a better buy. But the Trance doesn't handle like the Camber.

    So I was stuck. The2012 26" Camber Elite and Expert models sold-out last year. I didn't want a 29" Camber. The only 26" Camber available was the entry-level Comp. To meet a lower price-point of the entry level market, the drivetrain componets were not up to par for the riding that I do.

    My first outing with the Camber showed that the bike still had a lot of good parts. I confined myself to easy trails and the bike performed well. It is when I took the bike into more ddemanding terrain that the weaknesses in the drive train showed up. The first disaster was a bent front wheel. The wheels were fine for easy trail riding. But not for rough and rocky terrian.

    The upgrades have turned a good trail bike into a great all mountain bike. I am very happy with the bike. All the 26" Cambers have sold out. The slower handling 29" Cambers are all that is being made now. What a shame.

    Thanks, Bruce
