    I'm going to be visiting San Diego for about a week around the New Years holiday. Aside from wanting to eat fresh seafood and get in the ocean at some point, I don't have a lot planned. Is there...

    Rider weight/preference has a lot to do with it too. As a 150lb rider with high tolerance for rough stuff, I like tires anywhere from 25mm (fine for 3/4" gravel roads) to 38mm (for really rough...

    Those projections of 'money-saved' seem extremely optimistic to me, at least as they apply to entire cities or communities: If more people go car-free, what happens to all the economic activity...

    Yes, some of those changes you made are questionable indeed - how dare you remove that lovely Pletscher rack and classy vintage stem shifters? :P

    I'm curious to see what info other here may contribute, my knowledge of '333' is pretty sparse. What I've gathered is that the name was used by Shimano on a wide range of components, starting in the...

    Very nice work, and welcome to Bikeforums! You found that Miyata in a scrap yard? It's mind-boggling what some people throw away, that's a really nice frame with a lot of desirable parts.

    Sauge is French for sage, the herb. That I've put 'sage' in my name is an in-joke that people who visit a different part of the internet will understand. Basically it says I'm self-effacing, or that...

    I don't get why pooping before a ride is an issue - didn't your bike shorts come with an absorbent pad down the middle to solve this very problem?

    Could be worse, at least the 'police' in question didn't make a new posting in the sales section to publicly decry you as a crass profiteer and tell everyone that your asking price is too high.
