Since spring-like weather is taking its sweet time in many parts of the country, full-on cycling season has yet to blossom. Not being a huge fan of the lingering cold, myself, I'm among all the fair weather cyclists that have been crowding into spin class, preparing for warmer outdoor riding.  And tends to happens when you're in our profession, :) people have been stopping me after class to ask questions about the various aches and pains they are experiencing as they exercise and get ready for summer sports.  The question I'm most frequently asked?
