    I haven't figured out how to "back out of" mapmyride, there seems to be no quit button / menu. Will play with some more. There are other apps to try out too.

    Will look into this "power toggles"...

    Foolish gps question

    Just picked up a smartphone, an android, to do all the typical stuff. I decided to try mapmyride on it. This morning I went into the app and the gps turned on. And I couldn't figure out how to try it...

    Wheelset advice

    My Trek Pilot 1.2 currently has Conti 4000's on the original Bontrager SSR's. Four or five thousand miles, popped a spoke a couple years ago but they seem to still be going.

    I've always wanted a...

    Had to reread the thread, as it didn't seem possible. A 7spd will have long chain life, as the plates are thick(er) (everything being relative). Cleaning every 650miles or so would destroy my 9spd...

    Is the cassette in good shape? I know I wear mine out prematurely because I don't oil the chain properly. If you rack up the miles, I'd think about having the chain whip, as I'd think you'd likely...

    Spoke snapped at the end of last riding season. Season prior (I think) I hit a lip in the road and knocked it out of true. One spoke was really, really loose; I forget if all I did was tighten just...

    Replacing a spoke

    Ok, bike shop has the replacement spokes for my Bontrager SSR's (which have like 5kmiles on them, and are apt to break some more--I made sure to buy spares). When I inquired what it would cost to...

    Shoot, forgot where it broke--I think it was at the hub. Pretty sure I unscrewed what was left.

    No method to check tension (short of plucking, and I'm tone deaf), and no truing stand either. ...

    Bontrager SSR wheels?

    These came on my Trek, and made it until the bitter end of last summer. I dunno, maybe 5,000miles or so of riding on NH roads. One spoke broken now. I did hit some lip in the road a year or so...

    It takes far more energy to get a car up to (and down from) speed. More mass. So by that argument cars should never be required to come to a full stop--and all cyclists and pedestrians should yeild...

    Thinking of buying a new bike

    I'd like to keep biking through this winter. I live in NH, so, I don't need a fast bike... it's cold up here! The goal is to keep biking through the winter, to stay in shape.

    You're right, I listed 10 gears on my 9 speed cassette.

    I gave into temptation, and just ordered a 12-23 last night (on sale etc). Will see if I like it. If not, it was a cheap experiment. The...

    Swapping cogs in a cassette?

    Does anyone still do this? On a 9 speed?

    I've long thought about changing from the 12-25 on my bike to maybe even 12-21. I have a triple, so technically I can always use the granny 30T while...

    Yeah, it's called "apply lube when I think of it", and I never actually clean the chain. To be fair, I do have to stand to climb a number of hills, and I don't shy away from bombing down dirt roads....

    Tire replacement question
