    Again, I agree. The ones I've tried are far more uncomfortable than any other saddle I've ever used. If nothing else, I find that the do exactly the opposite of what is advertised. They numb the...

    Yes, there is a "properly" when it comes to riding a bike. Many people don't know this and they end up not being able to ride for very long times without pain. I tour by bicycle and can ride for 6...

    I've use a Minoura (like this one) now and have used something similar to the Pro Carbon. Both suffer from the same problem. They have to be really tight on the bars to keep from slipping. The...

    I don't disagree but if mountainwalker doesn't know how ride properly on a bike, putting a Brooks on a bike isn't going to solve his problem. He (or she) needs to develop the proper technique or the...

    I'll preface this by saying that I hate using studs. They are heavy and slow and useless...except in conditions exactly like the ones you show. I know they are expensive and you may not use them...

    I agree.



    While I too use Brooks, mountainwalker should be warned that they have zero padding. They are not a "seat". If you try to ride them that way, you are in for a world of hurt. If you...

    Probably not. I've seen this kind of fading on some very expensive parts. Most bikes with really high end parts don't spend much time in direct sunlight other than when being ridden...most people...

    Some black anodizing is UV stable but others are not. It depends on the dye used in the anodizing process. Some of the older dyes (mid 90s) were very unstable. I've seen old parts are my local...

    I have seen no "facts" from any posters. My calculations are based on facts...real ones of known principles. If you have a different set of "facts", present them.

    I have named a source of liquid water. See post 161. Depending on the starting and ending temperature, the amount of water that air can carry varies widely and in a nonlinear fashion. Air at the...

    No and I resent the implication. Nothing I have said is inflammatory nor off-topic nor extraneous. The math and chemistry I've presented is very germane to the discussion and fairly simple...

    Not clever at all because it's not true. Smaller engines, hybrids and electrics are made for economy not because icing of roads is a problem. Icing of roads is still a problem.

    Yes, lots of bridges ice without being over water but it's not "car exhaust"



    Yes, some water from car exhaust will condense out but it's a minor component. Let's say you have a city that is...

    The water only has to be partially open over water to have air saturated with water vapor. Rivers are usually warmer than the surrounding air as well...they have to be because water doesn't flow...

    No, I'm not confusing them. They all form from the same mechanism. Hoar frost and rime ice both form from water condensing out of the atmosphere. Droplet size has little to do with the mechanism...

    Let's do a little math, shall we? Let's assume that all the cars are the same size and, for simplicity, that they occupy a space that is 30' by 11' or 330 square feet. Let's also assume that the...

    No, rime ice isn't different. It is, essentially, ice that forms from the gaseous form (aka water vapor) to the solid. It's the opposite of sublimation. If water vapor from car exhaust could form...

    No, they aren't saying the same thing. I'm not saying that black ice doesn't form. What I am saying is that it is rare and is all to often used as an excuse. I've had my share of experiences with...

    No, my understanding of how "black" ice forms isn't "lacking". Ice, of any variety, can form below 0C...i.e. the "freezing" point of water. If the temperature is 0C and there is air is at the...

    You can still see it. It's not "invisible". Rime ice (the type that would form from water vapor freezing out of the air at 0F) traps a lot of air in it and appears white. True "black" ice is...

    What sort of situations can ice form that don't met the conditions I laid out? You can get some weird ice forms that freeze at higher than 0C but you won't find the conditions necessary at ambient...
