Yeah. That's what I did with it. I ripped the rack and handlebars from it, but a few months ago, I finally got to see the bike with my own eyes. The headtube and downtube _were_ forced, and worse,...

Is anybody seeing the recent photos that are attachments? All I am seeing is a list of attachments, but no images--and I'm logged in. :( TIA

When I try to open one of the images, Flickr says the photo is private.... maybe change permissions on them?

I think this is an excellent idea. Not necessarily lots of pictures in one post, but hilights--pretty sights along the way--with bikes or without. Sticky this, and I suspect it would be popular.

Very nice job on this before/after. Lovely Lotus, and the contrast is strong. It's just the sort of before/after post I love! Great work!

Man, I never thought about that before.... but back in the 80 and early 90s, I had a Raleigh Rampar 14 touring bike that had extra long brake cables also. I never really gave it much of a thought,...

Strange day today. First off, horrible head wind on the way to work. That just underscored the need to get my drops onto my bike (complicated by the hydraulic disk brakes). I was quite exhausted...

I dunno.... I once had a triangle frame bag, and I hated it. I sold it to a friend, and used the proceeds to buy a rack and panniers. :-) It was constantly bumping into my knees, regardless of how...

I love that derailleur combo! Do you find it awkward to shift the front derailleur? I presume it's only for changing at the beginning of a climb or at the top of a climb... Fascinating concept,...

In this case, this is an artistic device. By cutting off the bottom of the front tire like that, it creates and imbalance, creating a sense of instability or movement. The bike is moving off the...

I stopped trying to make eye-contact with people years ago, after a few looked right at me, and pulled out anyway. Now, I look at their front wheels, and watch how they're rolling. That is a much...

Definitely bigger tires will help. And I don't know how 25s can help you go "faster" when you have to slow down because of the rough ride, and worse, because of pinch flats from too low of pressure....

I dunno. There's more to drops than just multiple hand positions. Personally, I'm of the opinion, that one of the worst things to happen to cycling was the straight bars from mountain biking. They...

Unfortunately, they seem to be made in Poland, and sold only here. Here's a link to a current auction. They've changed the style of the bag a bit, but it's essentially the same thing as mine. They...

Yeah, that's the catch. Yeah, I can do it, but in the end, it is just a distraction. Now, I'm speaking from the perspective of a dozen years or more of not riding with clips. I know that, when I was...

It's the foot that's down that is the problem. Get in a hurry, and try catching the cage. Yes, you can succeed 99% of the time, but that one percent is big--bigger, I would think, than the danger of...

When I was tightly strapped in, even without the cleat, with soft-soled shoes and pedals with teeth, my feet weren't coming out except in _extreme_ situations--unless I loosened the straps first....
