    Clean rust, unbulge, tig weld, rattle can. It's in a spot where I wouldn't bother doing the whole frame. Removing the bulge might be a little tricky because the metal has expanded which means it's...

    You ever come across people while hiking who shine their flashlights directly in your eyes? It's the same thing. Any place you're sharing the lane with peds, your light should point slightly down.

    Some municipal courts in Texas are courts of record. If yours isn't, your appeal is actually a new trial. Your appeal is actually a gamble that the LEO can't attend the second trial.

    Appeal on what basis? You don't agree with the decision? You can only appeal on a point of law.

    I'll echo what Pug says about staying in Harrison. The Marriott is in the middle of several intensely driven highways. My sister stayed there this summer when she came up to visit the city and...

    It's a big difference but most people would consider it hair splitting. No member of the judiciary can make an arrest or in some cases even report a crime. A warrant is issued by the court but...

    I used that "shim" to install a 1" steerer into an RST fork that can take a 1" or 1 1/8 steer tube. Worked fine.

    A common misconception but the courts don't enforce anything. The executive branch enforces and the judicial branch interprets. I don't know what terms are used in Canada but the concept is the...

    What could be the biggest deterrent in NJ is that there is a mandatory court appearance along with the citation. A lot of drivers see the fine as a part of the cost of their cell service and don't...

    Under pressure, the tube conforms to the inside surface of the tire/rim assembly same as the air does in a tubeless assembly. There's no difference.

    A sharp rap on the end of the wrench with a large rubber mallet works well.

    Assuming the gears were aligned properly in the first place, it sounds like frame flex was the culprit.

    I took my bike to the LBS to ask about stem length and the owner took one look at my tape job and promptly rewrapped my bars. I hate wrapping bars but it's good to know an LBS with OCD.

    I believe it's even a little more crass than that. My friend owns a small tool distribution company. People were bringing him broken electric drills they had brought at Lowes or Home Depot so he...

    It's amazing how much stronger you get with time. It was only five years ago I needed a walker to get around after my episode. Now I'm riding and back at work and enjoying life. You'll get there. The...

    A 24tpi internal thread restorer will save on the cost of a chasing die or trip to the lbs if the problem is merely slightly damaged threading.

    It makes sense that that stud is super tight or else it would unscrew every time you removed the FD. Try leaving the bike outside. That little bit of shrinkage from getting cold might be enough to...
