  1. For you, what is impossible to ride through?

    We experienced a bit of a "blizzard" last night. (Not nearly as much as I wanted...) I rode home just fine, the snow didn't bother me. However, this morning was tough. It laid down about 6 inches...

    If I'm on my double, I stay in the big chainring unless I'm climbing. I don't even have to go big-big to start out. Two or three hard pedals and I'm up to 80-90 RPM so it's not an issue. If I'm on my...

    Definitely learn how to change your tubes. It's absolutely necessary if you're going to be riding bikes with any sort of frequency. It's super easy, just get yourself 2-3 tire wrenches/levers. I...

    The correct answer is "However the heck you want to do it." Just beware of crosschaining.

    Interesting video. I ran throughout pittsburgh for 4 years in college. Never saw many bikers. For a city it's hard to add bike lanes because the roads are only so wide. You can't move buildings. I...

    I agree that bike ninjas are a menace, however I'm not sure how to enforce it. When I was in college, I had to ride my bike to a job I worked at very early in the morning (3-4AM). It was a crappy...

    Buy a good pair of nokians of scwalabes and put them on now. The carbide studs don't wear out on asphalt or any other road surface. Those tires actually tell you to ride 30 miles on clean asphalt...

    Thanks for the advice, I'll pass it along. Here in Montana it's perfectly acceptable to wear absolutely anything to keep yourself warm, so that's not an issue! Montana isn't a particularly fashion...

    Oh my goodness, that thing is awesome! I would totally rock that! I don't even want to know how expensive it is though...

    EDIT: 85 euro for the rack attachment and crate together. Not bad at...

    Signaling at night?

    It gets dark here early, and light late. I ride to work in the dark and ride home in the dark. I signal with my hands, but in the dark, I doubt anyone can see me signaling (I have lights on the bike,...

    Off-topic. Be careful with those chinese power packs. They are often built VERY cheaply and VERY dangerously. I wouldn't trust my $300+ device to one of them. Not only can they easily catch on fire,...

    As dumb/drunk as some hunters are... I doubt they'd take shots at a biker, regardless if they were wearing bright clothes or not. There are so many laws as to what you can and cannot shoot that...

    Thank you for all of your suggestions. I absolutely forgot about this thread.

    A single sided pannier doesn't seem to bother me, even with heavy books in it. I DO notice the extra weight relatively high up on the bike when I'm out of the saddle, but that's it. I think it's more...

    The problem with automatic on/off is that there is no easy way to do it. It'd either require GPS or a wheel sensor. Sure, you could probably get away with an accelerometer, but technically if you're...

    If you're electronically inclined you can replace the battery on any light that's not heat sealed/melted together. Some require a soldering iron, some are simply slide in/slide out. Some probably...

    I pump the tube up a bit with air, then run the tube close to my face to hear/feel the air coming out. Then I sit down and sand/prepare the patch, and sit it on my bent knee till it's ready to be...

    Honestly I think that kit kinda sucks. There are maybe 5 bike specific tools in that kit that are necessary. (Chain whip, pedal wrench, cassette tool, crank tool, chain breaker.) The rest probably...

    If by return spring you mean the tension spring then yes, there are tension springs. Otherwise if I disconnect the quick connect both cantilevers spring out and the cable goes limp (because the "link...

    I totally missed those tool kits. I even looked for them! The home starter kit at ~$90 isn't too bad, but the professional kit at ~$700 is way too much! The master kit is $5,000-$6,000. Wowsers.

    Thanks for the info, but none of the wires are under tension when I tighten them. (Although that tool does seem optimal for other types of brakes/front derailleurs.) If you disconnect the quick...

    I don't think you'll find an "all in one" toolset. Many tools that are required are specific to certain types of components. Look what you need for your bike and make a list. A nice set of metric...

    Looks like Broomfield has a bit of a milder climate than Bozeman, but I'll throw in my 2c. I think a cyclocrossish bike would be fine, provided you get winter tires (either studded or dedicated...

    Interesting. I knew about the dangers of cantilever brakes, hence why I still have reflectors (and a rear fender.) on this bike. The only annoying thing is that with the reflector and fender mounted,...
