All else aside, congrats on completing your fifteenth lap around the sun. We're all jealous that we're not your age (at least in some ways... ;) ). Happy birthday!

How do a Motobecane and a Scattante Compare?

It seems perhaps more likely that these two bike brands have been tried out by the same riders. I'm genuinely curious.

Didn't you mean to post this on Craigslist's "Missed Connections"? :)

Just kidding. Any random fun like this is multiplied 10x when it happens on a bike.

My frame isn't that old but this is my late 1990's steel Tecnos with mostly older alloy Record parts but 2008 brifters and a 10-speed cassette. And yeah, it's my bike: Hawaiian Hello Kitty is just...

Don't you have reticulated pythons in urban Singapore? I take it they're not that common. Or is that what you meant by "snakes"?

I saw a mouse (not a rat) today on the West Side Greenway. I just...

How to Buy a Beater in the City?

I live in downtown New York. My only bike right now is my Colnago, which sucks because I'd really like a bike that I could ride around the city with and lock up for errands or whatever.

Cleaning Bicycles in a City Apartment

How do you do it? Do you take your bike out to the nearest park or parking lot? Use the bathtub? If it's the latter, do you use a work stand? I'm also a bit worried about the cleansers and lubricants...

I didn't even know they made Precisa forks anymore but from a purely aesthetic point of view, I would absolutely get one if you're building up a steel Colnago. A carbon Street or Star fork might be a...

Shifting Problem with Older Campy Record

I'm having some problems shifting on to the big ring with an older Campy Record group (originally 8-speed) that's been upgraded to 10-speed. My guess is that the old model front derailleur is having...

Campagnolo Deep Profile Wheels
