Unwanted ads in my posts.

Anyone know how I can stop random ads from being inserted in my posts?

Congrats on the birthday and the win. I am two weeks away from 70. Never been a racer or any sort of bicycle superman, but I'm planning a fixed gear century in September to celebrate the birthday.

Cycling is great for my arthritis. The more I ride, the better my knees feel. Is fixed gear good for arthritis? Pro: Your legs are constantly moving, circulating blood and flexing stiff joints. Con:...

I ride an aluminum frame with carbon forks pretty long distances in comfort. 25 cc tires may help. But I think my cushy Terry fly gel saddle makes the most difference.

Right out of the box, my Windsor cost me around $35 to have my local bike shop true the wheels. Within 500 miles, the bottom bracket and headset were creaking and couldn't be adjusted. Wheels and...
