    No, I haven't. I don't ride that bike very often and the brakes on it now are ok. Though, I did think about doing this a couple of weeks ago. One of these days I will give it a try.

    Some Specialized bicycles come with the cables crossed out of the box. There is nothing wrong with do this and in my opinion, it is better to cross them.

    Yes, I know for now we can. Drivers seem to get angrier when taking the lane if there is a bike lane, door zone or not. And how long do you think we have the right to not use the bike lane? The more...

    No, that is the section. Though you linked to a better looking section of that section. If you go a bit east, you will see a retaining wall that takes away any shoulder to ride on if you are a...

    Check out the Thule Raceway Platform. I didn't check to see if it will work with your car or not. But it holds the bikes up by the wheels. Oops, you said you want a hitch. There are quite a few out...

    The broken plastic piece is still very common today on those old cantilevers. We used to replace them all the time. It's one of the first things I check when a bike with those come in. Now, we just...

    If you can get the shifter into friction mode, then it will work. If you can't, then it won't work with the 10 or 8 speed. One problem with the 10 speed cassette is the spacing. The cogs are closer...

    I disagree about the cornering. I can feel the difference between the smooth section to the tread section, but I don't feel as though they get squirrelly. But now that Gatorskins come in 32s, I will...

    That is what I was planning on doing. The great thing about this style of stand is that you don't need it to be very tall. Hang your hammock the way you like it. Measure the height of the ends. This...

    Veloplugs are nice but only work with double wall rims. I have some older rims where veloplugs won't work, unless I filed down the part that gets inserted. You also have to get the correct size.
