    Hey Oscar,
    I've fixed thousands of bikes and learn something new all of the time, if I keep my eyes open. Try using this resource to learn new things or to help others as I and many others do.

    i REALLY FIX MY BIKE, BUT IF I SEE A CYCLIST STRANDED ON A STREET AND THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THERE BIKE, I STOP AND OFFER TO HELP, SOMETIMES, THEY LET YOU HELP THEM SOMETIMES THEY GIVE YOU A COLD SHOULDER, AND SAY "IAM ALRIGHT" AND I HAVE NEVER KEPT MY EYES CLOSE FOR ME TO KEEP ABREAST WITH THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE BIKE TECHNOLOGY.

    Oscar,
    I had hoped you had the good attitude, please accept my apologies if I've insulted you. I could say I've been riding over 40 years, but I don't count my "car period" or riding before I learned how to do it right.
    Ride on,
    Pat

    gREAT iDEA!!!

    i REALLY LIKE THIS "rEVERSED" cAPS THING.

    i THINK i'LL USE IT NEXT WEEK... i HAVE TO WRITE PERFORMANCE REVIEWS.

    Here is another cruel trick, for free: On a coworker's keyboard, use a small screwdriver or paperclip to pry up the key-caps on the M and the N... and reverse them.

    Most folks will fire off an " inportamt neno" or two before they realize there is anything wrong, and touch typists might not notice all day...

    aGAIN, THANKS!

    And while we're way off topic...
    Try switching the cursor keys (up arrow, down arrow, right, left) on a keyboard. It's amazing how confusing it is!

    Hello, Oscar! I started fixing my bike, too. I'm real new to the bike-fix-it thing. I switched out both of my tires yesterday, and got grease all over my hands (my rims were dirty). I did a few maintenance things, too. My bike seems to be better for it!

    I've been reading the Zinn book as a reference for these maintenance issues...
