    If you get a lot of sore throats it may be due to something chronic.

    Sure. I have two different saddles that I find comfortable. I ride a Brooks on my heavy bikes. I don't even notice the saddle. I ride a Terry Butterfly on my go fast bike and mountain bike. ...

    I guess it makes sense to go light, to a point. The problem with determining whether it is a placebo effect is that there is no good way to blind your one person study. :)

    Money is not a consideration, but good sense is. I stopped at a local bike shop today to get a part for my pump and talked about wheels. They think that there really isn't that big of an upside to...

    Not near there until Spring. I am in Tucson for the winter. I haven't heard about these guys. I'll have to check them out.

    OK hon, I'll go in for bike shop advice. Actually, I have to go into a bike shop today as my pump head failed. And if they have something that works I don't mind paying some extra to support bricks...

    I understand about the search. I search and end up confused. The 26 inch wheels are marketed either as mountain bike wheels with mountain bike marketing speak, or as bullet proof strong touring...

    I've been poking around looking at pictures. I did figure out what kind of brakes would work and how to cable them. A single speed does sound sweet.

    Sram low end ones are cheap, less than twenty bucks. My husband only uses grip shifters. They seem to work fine. He has both a higher end and low end pair of Sram shifters, both work just fine....

    Talcum powder on the rim edge makes a huge difference. I can slide tires over that were impossible without a jack. I bought the local coop and big thing of talcum powder just for that purpose.

    You will love rat poison when it saves your life. Rat poison is only a super blood thinner. Great if you have a bunch of clots floating around.

    Don't be so sure about conflicts and incentives. I think of the Swiss government report finding homeopathy works. Which is absolutely impossible (dilution of effective ingredients to nothing) and...

    Thirty years on statins and I've noticed no issues. Bad family history. Both parents died of heart attacks. Mother at 39. Father at 63. His first heart attack was when he was 43. I am nearly 60...
