I searched and found several threads on repairing Joe Blow pumps, but none of them detail how to disassemble the pump. Mine has a leaky valve. It pumps air fine, but then it leaks back into the...

The connectors you show are not rated for outdoor use. The most problematic part of any electrical system will be the contacts. I HIGHLY recommend using dielectric grease on all your connectors. ...

Pointing

I recently came across an entry on an engineering blog (http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1395&doc_id=262955) titled "How Safe Is Safe Enough?" It's not about bicycle safety, but there...

I do both. I'm not good enough at either to be considered competitive. But I enjoy both. Golf CAN be exercise if you skip the cart, which I do. Walking 18 IS exercise. I'll admit that it's not...

+1. Motorcyclist even stood the bike up mid corner. If he'd just maintained his lean angle, he'd have easily turned to the inside of the cyclists. His speed (luckily for the cyclists) was WAY...

I'll admit that its speculation, but, as I linked above, Alabama has a contributory negligence law, which prevents collection of damages if the injured party bears ANY responsibility. And given that...

I would consider this a good thing. Their weak Jedi powers only work on the weak minded. By now, we should be mostly immune to gotta-have-it marketing for useless, overpriced trinkets.

I flatted a Marathon Plus once. Had a screw punch through. On the rear. I'm guessing the front kicked it up.

Given that the soles of road shoes are about as soft any pliable as bedrock, I suspect that the only "wearing in" occurring would be in my feet. I was looking for a slightly different solution.

Maybe YOU don't hear about, but there are people who do it. See http://www.runforwwp.com/ This guy did it day after day for about 3 months. Admittedly, he's not a member of the 50+ club.

Cycling shoes & insoles

I'm going to ask this here instead of the roadie forum because I want the perspective of 50+'ers vs that of 20 yr old racers, or racer wannabes.

I'm 50, and I want to ride a century. I've not...
