    I'm in the same boat as others here who don't bother cleaning the bike until spring. It's mostly just wet here. I lube the chain every so often but nothing else until it dries up and warms up.

    It was cold and wet. Bordering on freezing but still raining. Usually when it's raining here it's not quite that cold. It'll be interesting to see tomorrow if all this precipitation freezes up and...

    I prefer winter commuting in some ways because there are way fewer people on the MUP to get in my way. Plus I get warm enough riding, so the cooler weather is nice.

    I have the Axiom DLX Streamlined. Works great with my disc brake bike and was easy to mount. I did a fair amount of searching before I found it seemed like the best option.

    Guilty as charged. Please tell me how you were able to know that I came here for validation, that I'm trying to profit off of the ignorance/trust funds of others, that my asking price is unfair,...

    Craigslist Police?

    So I listed a bike on Craigslist today- sure I might have been asking for an upper-end price, but I live in Portland and I've sold lesser bikes for similar prices before, so I always start out at the...

    Glad to hear the panniers are working. They were certainly a revelation for me many years ago when I got my first pair. Since then any bike I get, that's the first accessory I throw on.

    Not at all true in my case. Knee pain issues began because I have difficulty keeping my legs lined up so they track correctly. Getting clipless pedals to hold my feet exactly in place the entire...

    I agree with others who said the dual platform/spd pedals are kind of a pain to find the right side. I prefer the spd's that clip on both sides. Personally I wouldn't bother with clipless. I had a...

    So let me explain:

    Lots of problems in the last couple of years with my knees (mostly seemed to get worse the more I rode the bike). Finally saw a physical therapist who helped me learn some...
