    What do the oncoming vehicles do when their beam sweeps you? It's along reach from the steering wheel to the headlights. Besides that, they typically have much more light output than does your...

    Wow! that is one heck of a price cut. These are fun, I think you'll really like them.

    If anyone needs a single one, I have an extra and I'd sell it cheap. Brand new, never used.

    Me too - what was wrong with the head? I'd never buy their yuppie pump either, but the heads and replacement parts I'm still counting on to keep my current Silca pump going.

    That's the park stand I have. If one is to get a stand like that, the Feedback Sports Sprint stand is better. It's lighter, it's got a better scheme to fold up the legs and it's easier to adjust to...

    SKS Rennkompressor.

    It's about $50. It's built like a brick sh*thouse and will probably outlast you. It can be cheaply rebuilt and has had complete set of spare parts available for it for the...

    I switched over completely to the iPhone as bike computer several years ago. The reasons I switched was because I had to carry my phone with me anyhow, so this meant one less thing to carry. What...

    But at that point I don't see the advantage of a cable lock over a u lock either.

    the small u locks fit in the rear pocket of a pair of jeans. They're designed to do that.

    Any of the cables here are short work with a pair of small bolt cutters (or smaller). You almost always...

    I understand the sentiment of a small, portable cable for locking in direct view. I'd not advise it, but if one does want to purse this strategy, at least make sure that you have a cable that is not...

    Pretty much describes my thoughts exactly. I bought a cross bike (Gunnar Crosshairs) and run it with wide tires on it for the trails. I much prefer this to bashing down single track. It's a blast...

    Exactly.

    The only way I'd use a cable to lock a bike is if it's used as a secondary lock to force two toolsets to steal the bike OR if a short cable is used to lock the front wheel to a U-locked...

    Yep. Me too. I think that looks like a nice alternative to the Kool Kovers. More walkable, and you can close off the cleat portion as well with the plug that Speedplay will offer.

    The "layers" of glue refers to putting down multiple layers of the rim cement and letting it cure before you...

    That's the normal tubular glue that is the alternative to the tape. I've never used it and don't intend to but I believe it's a form of rubber cement that operates as a contact cement. It's not...

    For non aggressive riding, the inflation will pretty much keep the tire on the rim although that's not at all recommended. For getting home after a flat and a tire repair if you are careful, it will...

    Traditional brakes on bikes are also disk brakes. It's just that the disk is much, much larger diameter.

    Bar Mitts are awesome. I only use them when it's really cold because they can be too warm. At 30F, for example, I've even ridden bare handed with Bar Mitts. Any insulation and they can get too...
