    Go see a good sports orthopedist, hopefully one who is also knowledgeable about cycling. There are so many structures involved with the knee it's really hard to determine what's wrong in a forum. ...

    I don't have any experience with either, but from what I have read, electronic shifting is quiet and immediate, so for a pro who is trying to get a jump on the pack it is a good thing, otherwise,...

    The lady is about 9 mentally and spoiled rotten. I used to have to deal with these idiots all the time, and it was always nice when I got to smile and say "Sign here please" when I gave them a...

    An accident investigation must list the primary collision factor (I.E. what caused the accident) and any associated factors (what may have contributed to the accident). It's just the sign of a...

    Bicyclists have to obey the same traffic laws as automobiles, so if you rolled through a stop, then he had the right to stop you and issue a citation. Maybe unnecessary, but legal. Once you've...

    I use those tires and have had no problems getting them back on. It may help to have the tires warm/hot so the rubber is softer. Make sure the bead is in the rim properly and just work the edges...

    As you get older you lose muscle, plus with extra weight comes a diminished metabolism (age will decrease that too). Everything starts to not work like it did when you are younger. First and...

    As you get older, your metabolism slows. As you put on more weight, your metabolism slows. It's a lose-lose situation. You should keep a food diary, logging everything you eat and the amount of...

    Unless you want to hang a bunch of stuff on your bike, try a nice backpack for your clothing. Easy to put on and take off and won't wrinkle your clothes anymore than a bike bag.

    Road bars may help, but your gearing is probably the biggest. I don't know what your bike runs, but check with a local bike shop and see if you may want to try a different ring up front or on the...

    You need to check the teeth on the chairing and the freewheel. If they look curved and more like a sharks tooth, then you need to replace the chain and the gears. If you don't, a brand new chain...

    Got to try a B17 on my buddies bike the other day. He's taller than I am, so a little stretched out. Felt good when I was just coasting, but not too different from my plastic seat. Oh well.

    From what I can see, they look like standard Shimano pedals. Shoes and pedals are like anything else, you have to experiment and find what you like. Most road shoes are all three hole and accept...

    Here's a photo of the Selle I am looking at. Nice shape and cutout, but no rails under the seat for support, just leather and some plastic support inserts. You can adjust a bolt to...

    I had similar to what you had. Turns out I had fractured ribs. The area is full of nerves so you could also have inflammation to the bone area. If you absolutely won't go to the Doc, then take...

    I've used mine for walks/runs, and many times it won't pick up the satellite. I used it the other day and it showed 1.18 mi after I'd done 3 miles. It doesn't like it when it's not on the bike. ...

    Definitely a good excuse for some new "Bling" on the bike, but I think in the long run it may be a good piece to have. Sounds like it locks the unit in very securely and makes it a little more...
