I use paraffin, with the crockpot method. I don't know if it makes my chains last longer, but it does make sure I don't get oil on my pants. Considering that my two chains have about 2-3k miles and...

I find my Bern Brentwood to be reasonably cool. Hotter than wearing nothing, cooler than my wool cycling cap. I am, however, used to working in ridiculously hot temperatures, and there are probably...

I have worked with tons of people who have these exact reasons to bike, yet do not. The exception is usually people who are not allowed to have licenses, and given the chance, they would choose to...

Racks and panniers are to some extent a 'you get what you pay' for type of deal, but some good, cheap solutions exist. Be aware that if you get panniers, many of them will have a hook or bungee near...

Yeah, that will prevent him from driving. So, should we lock him up indefinitely or will 5 years be enough to make him not drive when he gets out? 10 years? I don't see why an increase is any more...
