Yesterday, we were on a country road, and about 100 feet ahead of us, a few deer cross from right to left, and at the same time, 80 feet ahead of us, a flock of turkeys crossed from left to right. I...

If you weren't working with a cartridge BB, I would tell you to turn the spindle around. I've done that on one or two of my bikes, and for some reason, it works better. Maybe you should try this with...

I've developed skill with my Take-A-Look mirror, and I use it on almost every ride. I do have to turn my head, but I can do it quickly with good aim. I keep it with my helmet and gloves, and I use...

cyccommute, I hadn't thought of it that way, and I'm sure it's because I haven't ridden mountain bikes any significant distance.

The more I stand up while pedaling, the more I like doing it. Lately, I do it a lot to start up from a stop while in traffic. It gets me going more quickly than in the saddle, and I don't have to...

I'll never forget the time I misjudged a heavy rider. He was 20 years older than I was. I thought he was a poser. Turns out, I was the one with the judgmental attitude. I just about blew my body up...

I'm sure round people enjoy wearing lycra as much as I do. I don't expect them to care what I think of how they look. I'm happy to see round people riding bikes anyway.

It's not just the young women I love to see. Old people and young men also look great while cycling and jogging, stretching, whatever. And I agree with what you say about cities. NYC's rate of car...

I've had too many ill-fitting shoes. I have to try them on to buy them. I know Campmor carries Lake shoes, so I'll stop by there as well as visiting more bike shops.

Need extra wide SPD shoes

I have foot problems, and I need an extra wide SPD shoe. I tried on size 49 shoes in a couple of bike shops, and they're too narrow. I would wear a size 50 if it existed, but I don't think it does,...

If you decide you need more power than any of these dynamos or batteries provide, you can get more than one. It might be extreme, but it certainly is possible to run a hub dynamo and a bottle dynamo...

will_be_was, is there a web page to check to see if the path on the Bridge is closed? I don't ride on the Bridge, but I pass under it in Manhattan. I could use that as a gauge to know how smart...

The light are integrated into the frame. That's convenient if they work well. What do you do when they fail? What if they're not good enough and you want to replace them? All of the internal...

The rear hub can accept a 6-speed freewheel or a 1-speed freewheel. The hubs don't care what diameter rim you use.
