    Commuting miles vs. Recreational miles

    How many miles of commuting does it take for you to not be concerned with getting in recreational miles on your own or with friends?

    Or does it matter?

    I've only lost a wallet once, about 30 years ago. I don't know if it was the finder that kept the $30 that was in it, but someone mailed it back to me.

    I built up a Torpado frame recently (got it for $50 on Craigslist!) and put a Nashbar carbon fork on it. The dropout slots were too narrow to fit a wheel in so I took a file to them. It was very...

    I have been riding 700x28 Serfas Seca tires for a couple years and love them. The only bike I have with tight tolerance is a 2004 LeMond Buenos Aires. Here is the rear tire clearance.

    I was watching titanium come down in price in the '90s, hoping to swoop in but CF became less expensive to produce, I guess. Litespeed had a no-frills frame called a Classic; I seem to remember it...

    I've wondered why a derailleur is referred to as a "mech". It's lingo I've not encountered anywhere but here.

    Very nice. I've always liked that ADR color scheme.

    I have some Vuelta wheels on an old Bianchi. Obviously, the red of the decals is a poor match. I found that they were easily peeled off.

    My worst eBay experience was a week after we had moved from an apartment. I bought an item (SRAM Grip Shift, less than $20) and as I finalized the purchase I realized that I hadn't changed my...

    Unless there is something unique about Red cranks, it should simply take an 8mm allen wrench to undo the bolt and it'll come right off.

    I have Rival cranks on my bike and that's all it takes.

    I got this Torpado/Columbus Aelle frame on local Craigslist a couple weeks ago for $50. All I needed to build it up was a fork, headset, shifters and seatpost. It's a little bigger than I normally...

    I thought I saved it, but can't find it. Awhile back I saw a photo of the Dos Equis guy with the text "I don't always have to poop, but when I do, it's right after I put my bibs and jersey on."

    I saw it when it first aired over the summer (?) and recently bought a DVD of it. I've watched it 3 more times.

    Paul Koechli comes off as somewhat of a mad scientist in it.

    I have one set on an old Bianchi. I peeled the decals off because red has no place on a celeste bike (except for the Columbus decal).

    I've been riding one of the sets for a little over 4 years now. They're still running true and the hubs are super-smoothe.

    For modern cranks, I really like the style of SRAM's Rival crankset. I recently bought a new pair on eBay for $144.

    They come standard in black, though. Older silver/polished sets sometimes...

    I have Vuelta Corsa HD wheels on two bikes. The HD part is just that they have 36 spokes; they're really not that heavy. I got each pair for less than $150. I think the 2nd set cost me $130 +...

    Torpado find on C-list; frame size

    I've been riding 58cm steel frames since 1988 and never thought I'd go back to something like the 25" Nishiki I had when I was younger.

    But, in August I bought a 60cm Guerciotti TSX from a...

    For what it's worth, I run a 7-speed era Ultegra rear derailleur on a 9-speed SRAM cassette with Dura Ace 9-speed down tube shifters.

    Works perfectly.

    I have sometimes been able to bring a bike inside, in which case it is nice to use a road bike for a faster commute. My road bikes are too nice to leave locked up anywhere for long periods.

    If there is a parking garage, they always (?) have stairways in the corners of solid railing to lock up to.

    That's not a guarantee that you won't be hassled, though. I was given a written parking...

    Ditto on that. I ended up with some pedals that ONLY had an 8mm allen socket for tightening and removal. Something about those pedal threads also had a tendency to freeze up despite using grease. ...
