    Overkill for my purposes, but on a 55mph road in Florida I'd go a little extreme as well. Now you just need a bunch of Superflashes attached to some wire to spell the word "Detour" and have a left...

    Lesson learned, the hard way. I managed to saw the old cup out with a hacksaw blade without messing up the threads.
  5. Tight bottom bracket, slipped tool damaged teeth :(

    For whatever reason, I felt the need to take the bottom bracket out of my 1998 GT LTS last night. I applied plenty of penetrating oil, but I don't know how much of a difference it made. The drive...

    I have one of the Transit garment bags from Performance. It works great, but it does take me an extra 3-4 minutes to unpack once I get to work. Depending on how long your commute is (mine is 3...

    That whole "Do it, honey! Buy the bike!" thing was probably sarcasm and it was your job to realize it. It is clearly your fault :).

    Just got back from my 3-mile commute in pouring rain, not a single spot of my clothes remained dry. The highlight was riding through 8" of water on the road. Thankfully I love riding in the rain and...

    Flip flop hub, ride the bigger cog uphill to work, switch it on lunch break, ride home on a smaller cog.

    I'm experiencing the exact opposite right now. I can normally install derailleurs with no trouble, but my new X7 (replacing my old X7) is driving me insane.

    My dad gets this often, even though he makes $93,000/year.
    As for me, I'm an entry level salesman in a chain store. Not much out there for a 19-year-old, but the job is pretty fun.

    Funny how he singles out bicycle lobbyists without a peep about Big-oil, big-car, big-highway, etc etc lobbies. A two-lane highway was just converted to 4-lane highway not too long ago, even though...

    IMO, commuting is any ride that ends in a place other than my home. Example: I commute to the grocery store, work, etc, but I take 35-mile rides on the weekend.

    It's in the works, but supposedly we need to build a $2-million transportation hub (in a city of 40,000) before that happens.
