    The flip side of the same problem - uneducated shop employees and friends who are 'bike experts' assume that the best available from whatever bikes are available is adequate, but for people on either...

    I think this is because many shops set tall people up on too-small bikes, and they get used to them. A bike that fits is better than both one that is too big and one that is too small.

    SheldonCooper is wrong, cyccocommute is right. The pressure change is proportional to the change in absolute temperature. As someone pointed out, using sheldoncooper's 'rule of thumb' if you start...

    From this thread I have come to the conclusion that the ALfine 11 is, at best, hit-or-miss in terms of manufacturing, or possibly just not robust enough for what some people want. This is sad to...

    Greater by how much? The rim will shrink circumferentially but the spokes will shrink radially.

    I rode the last month of my bike's life with a tire that has the plastic under the tread poking through. I promised myself I would get a new set of tires when the current tires were worn down, but...

    It has happened to me - going down a hill on a SS, so probably not more than 40 km/h, Nokian studded tires front and rear, the read studs let go for some reason and I found myself going sideways. I...

    To get back to the actual topic, I purchased an inexpensive basic (~$15) folding chair that had a tag saying 'max weight 250 lbs'. With my clothes I was probably 253 lbs. That chair survived two...

    Ride the bike so much that parts start wearing out and need replacing. Then replace with slightly nicer but obviously different (colour, shape, style) replacement parts. This will give the bike an...

    in my opinion, if the only thing broken is the shifter, and a direct replacement is available, then just replace the shifter. But your broken chain complicates things a bit. If the chain is...

    You measure the chainline at the crank after the arms are properly torqued. Measuring before they are torqued is like deciding on the fit of a shirt without buttoning it up. If you remove the...

    This is the right answer. The chainline can be measured at the freewheel as well as at the crank.
