Yes, they stay on, by intent. They...

Not to mention a pillow with an embroidered pair of Koss Pro4-AAs (though the red color is a little odd). Only fitting, as Koss is a WI company.

Have you looked into Keep-On-Kovers (http://www.keeponkovers.com/Product.html) for the Speedplays? I've been real happy with them.

Where you were wasn't safe, and was hardly practical. Taking the lane forces a full lane-switch by drivers, something that driver probably would have thought twice about. Hugging the line invites...

You can't see how the cage is secured in the picture. It could just as easily be straps.

I don't have a recommendation to make, but thought someone should point out that if you go the Wally World route, check your LBSs first to see if they'll even work on a BSO (Bicycle Shaped Object)....

I wasn't aware anyone was using the Gitane name any more. Guess I was wrong. I wonder when they hooked up with Bianchi and under what circumstances. My first race bike was a brand new '84 Tour de...

That's an interesting and unique way of looking at it, but I don't think it's very useful. There's nothing that says you have to use any particular gear on your bike. The gears are there to serve...
