I much prefer dogs on no leash than dogs on those 300 yard retractable leashes. A dog I can usually avoid. Their human I can usually avoid. Most difficult is when the two of them are yards apart...

Wow. Just wow. There's a lot going on there. I'm not sure whether to commend your ingenuity or impugn your lack of any aesthetic sense.

Better is not simply about the bike. It's also about the conditions and the context, so people don't buy fatbikes because they want to ride slowly.

Re the conditions, I can ride my fatbike in...

Excellent condition 1990 Team Miyata Frameset, 56cm. $500

If you're here looking at this you know Miyata was on par with the better European steel frames.

Fix for broken/missing nylon set screw insert in RD

One of the things companies have been doing lately to save money is using nylon inserts for the Hi Lo set screws instead of threading the aluminum itself. It's probably the weakest link in the RD. ...
