All I know is that I can pedal my granny gear faster and easier than I can walk. I also hate walking far. :)

Tru Dat on coasting. It also gives us something else to shoot for. ;)

I did figure that part out in the other thread, but I still want to discuss that here for other members. After all, "there is nothing there for us." I didn't remember what they were called.

I hate headwinds. They kill my momentum and are a constant bane. Strangely, Alabama winds seem to shift to work against both hunters and cyclists. I always seem to get a headwind, even when I turn...

1950's JC Higgins into a pack mule?

I am intending to turn my 1950's JC Higgins into a pack mule. Since I'm not necessarily trying to keep it strictly vintage, is this better discussed here or in the Mechanics board?

Will I need to...

I may also need a crash course in cables. I haven't given them much thought beyond checking them and getting Wal-Mart brand cables (easiest to get) if I have any questions. Oh yeah, I fill them...

The other thread was declared a "gun thread" and is now gone. We have to start all over.

If it isn't slack (and it isn't) on the small/small combo, you're fine. If it doesn't pull banjo string tight just before (or upon) shifting to big/big, again you'bs fine. You have a couple inches....

Personally, for some items, I would also comb "outside the bike shop," especially when some parts (like brake pads, chains, cables, etc) must be aquired rapidly. Wal-Mart has suitable substitutes...

I've tried that and found it to be useless to me. I would use heat and B'laster PB together to get the pedals off. ...then again, I use PB on everything.

I do like their marine grease.

Personally I would not concern myself with that type of rust, which I bet is just enough to stain, unless you want a purdy bike. However, I would get my can of B'laster PB (a WD-40 competitor) out...

This has come up several times, but I would like to see an easier to use interface available to mobile users. This can be accomplished as follows:

I saw another guy say about 5000 miles or so. I still think it's in the tire itself. Put the logo on the tire with the valve stem each time and see if the pinhole still moves around the rim.

why do delta trikes seem to "push" with only one rear wheel?
