    We'll be up there (or is it down there?) in April with the tandem. I've wanted to bike there for years and this year we've decided to do it. Oh and if you're looking to get rid of those scallops,...

    I'm really glad you posted this as I think about the same thing quite often when I ride. My theoretical max HR is 165. I know that I've had it up to 180, from taking my pulse at the top of a long...

    I think it's clear that the bolt came loose and fell off. Same thing happened to me on the granny ring on my tandem. Btw, there was no squeaking to announce the failure. So now I just check the...
