It looks like one of my riding friends will be doing the cross-Florida thing. He'll be in his 'white submarine.' I think this is his third year doing it. Last year he was in the lead until a few...

In the US, the right is generally for the rear derailleur and brake, the left side is for the front derailleur and brake. But there's no rule saying it has to be that way. In my early cycling days I...

The only reason they're going after him is that driving impaired, like terrorism, is a slam-dunk to be convicted. Otherwise, they would have blamed the cyclists and moved on.

If a thief wants your bike, there's no way to stop him. In fact, since you bought your bike off from CL there's a good chance that your bike has been stolen before. I probably assign a higher...

A triple would probably need the 113, but if you try what you have. Actually working trumps what the book says. Just make sure the granny ring clears the frame.

Yes, but when Steve1697 resurrected the zombie thread, he asked how many coats to use. Since he's asking about rattle-can paint jobs, I presume he's not using fancy, expensive specialty paints.

OP shouldn't complain, he should simply find the building manager and ask if it's permitted to park there. Most building managers don't want bikes parked against their windows or blocking any...

Caught me on that one! Newbies can't win - if they ask a question we tell them to search the archives, if they pull up a dead thread, we complain about that, too. At least he asked a new question. As...

You could always build your own oven out of a few sheets of foam insulating board and a heat lamp. Be sure to include a window and a thermometer inside so you can monitor everything.

It's only law when on a sidewalk or a path. OP wasn't. On the road, bikes are treated as vehicles, and it's not required to warn another vehicle when passing from behind. Or at least, most of those...

It's not that I'm not willing, it's that they typically corner me when I'm 50 miles from home, or worse, on an out-of-state tour. How am I supposed to know how to get to a church I've never heard of?...
