    winter storage, pedal wrench

    Evenin' all.

    So I cracked a pedal, but I can't get the thing off. All I have is a slide wrench and it doesn't give me the leverage I need, it's kinda rusty (It's the right pedal, so I'm going...
  3. disc brakes - replace the rotor when replacing the calipers?

    So I'm really tempting fate right now, no back brake (tore a pad off), 2 broken spokes + 1 loose on the back wheel, hoping it'll last another month before I need to replace the wheel. Trying to put...

    Thanks. It seems to have broken right at the rim, I'll post a pic in the morning. Its a department store bike, so I wouldn't assume much care was taken during assembly. I'd hate to have to replace...

    So yeah... Airing up my tire on the weekend, when I noticed a broken spoke. Strangely, the spoke and nut look fine, looks more like the nipple broke. Spoke is just sitting loose in the rim. Simple...

    That's unfortunate, sorry to hear it!

    Up here, people leave their bikes unlocked when going into stores all the time, I don't think I've ever seen a locked bike other than my own when I'm out. ...

    If only it were 10-20 cars backed up, it's usually more, and on Friday it's insane. I've seen it backed up solid then entire length of my trip!

    That's what I'm worried about, if I'm taking up too...

    That's really the big question - there's no dedicated lane, but the lanes were widened for cyclists, with that little dude on a bike stamped all over the road, so is that sufficient to assume it's...

    For the road rage/confidence, I have some pretty severe social anxiety so I'm pretty nervous about instigating something inadvertently, more than being flattened :P...

    What do you mean by filtering? I don't pass cars in the intersection, I'm not nearly fast enough, I generally just keep moving forward while they are stopped. There's plenty of room on the sides,...

    I'd love one. I get strange attacks of weakness when I ride sometimes, usually about once a trip. This would help compensate, but an 800$ part on a $300 bike doesn't make sense... that, and it...

    Ok it's definitely the BB that's loose, and it seems to be a little looser now, unless it's just my imagination because I'm more aware of the issue.

    thunk. thunk. thunk. thunk.

    Sooooo, yeah. Every revolution of the pedals, I can hear, and feel, a thud at the same position - at around the 1 o'clock position, on the right side.
