    Give it some more time....No more oil is being made, so the sources were finite to start with. Just simple math. When you use something faster than it is being made, it will run out, sooner, or...

    I hate them. I tried using them for a year, then went back to Power Grips.

    I guess they are OK if you are just going to sit in the saddle and pedal for extended times, without having to dismount,...

    I have a bad hip, so I really love Mixte frames. A Mixte frame is not a 'girls' bike. Girls frames have just one downtube going to the bottom bracket and are very weak. They were originally made for...

    I am guessing your question involves over-all health, rather than simply losing weight. To build your wind up (improve your cardiovascular performance), intense exertion over short periods of time,...

    The results of most studies seem to indicate to me that Pepper Spray is not really a good defensive tool. It does not incapacitate, or paralyze. It has no stopping power whatsoever. Attackers can,...

    From the posts I am seeing, it appears this thread has, like the others, devolved considerably, to the point where I feel like I've stepped into a Looney Bin. In the future, I will refrain from...

    You really think someone would die just because they stitched a rip in their helmet cover with braided thread? Do you also worry about whether or not a hangnail is going to be fatal?????? Both are...

    Are you alright? Maybe you should take a deep breath or something. The question was not about making a helmet cover, but simply repairing a rip in one. The very fact that braided does not stretch...

    Interesting points. I think you are on to something there. A motor vehicle can be cited for a multitude of violations that do not effect bicyclists. One traffic stop could result in 5 or more...

    It's still open, isn't it? What have you got against others continuing a discussion? If it bugs you, then just ignore it.

    And I mildly take exception to the characterization that I might be a...
