    My parents disappeared my nice Lionel O gauge set, and did the same with my ~ 3 miles of slotcar track and cars. My Schwinn tank bike too. What was I doing?

    Wow - this is a really good thread! Carbonfiberboy is absolutely correct - there's lots to go wrong with knees. For my knee issue, which is mild OA in my right knee - it flared up due to extended...

    In my area, one has to assume that people will run the red in the first 5 seconds. Failing to wait and look both ways on a just-changed green can be your last move.

    I hear you! But I already did that, earlier this spring. Kind of willing myself to get better - I'd been lurking in all the usual places hoping to pick up a good used Ti bike. I did, and then it was...

    Hi folks! I just wanted to check in to say that I have finally made it back onto the big chainring on my venerable commuter bikes. I've had multiple walking problems, and three an a half operations:...

    I can imagine that two attacks within a year would tend to curb your enthusiasm. But hey - modern cardiac medicine coupled with revision of your diet may keep you ticking for a lot longer. Keep...

    I bought my first good bike in 1972 for $320 - an Atala Record Pro with NR, sew-ups and Universal centerpulls. Butted 531, nice chromed ends and chromed fastback seat cluster - and fairly crappy...

    That's the main problem with bikemania, I think. You get used to riding a few of the others, develop a favorite, and then the rest of the herd gets put out to pasture. Until you try to thin the herd.

    A lucky stroke that you had a little old lady as your guardian angel. Glad you're OK and I hope you remain that way. I too would speak with the police.

    Hey, welcome back!
    Great pictures of cycling in the mountains.

    I'd be dead in a month or of two breathing Beijing air. What a challenge the country (and world) is facing.

    My thoughts exactly. Thirty seconds or so dipping the post in it followed by a few sharp whacks to release it should get it going enough to make penetrating oil finish the job.

    There was a similar thread on this in C&V. I foolishly posited that few bikes can be no-handed and of course was immediately (and probably rightly) hosed.
