    I own the Showers Pass jacket. I like it, but one major flaw is that the neck is pretty tight, presumably for keeping rain out. This also makes it hard to layer underneath much in the neck area....

    The way this winter is going, I am starting to think sometime around July 4th. I have a "dry" bike and a couple bikes "studded up." Problem is my "dry bike" is needing the drive train rebuilt and...
  5. Derailler Pulley Tooth Count: Does it matter?

    What is this? Disc brake housing fastener?

    I have never changed the brake cable housing on my bike. Most of the cable is secured with cable ties, but the fasteners on the seat stay appear to be different? What are they? Are they re-usable?

    I don't know your exact conditions but I do know there are conditions where riding a bike in the winter isn't practical. For me that point is usually pretty obvious. If you are having to walk your...
