    I haven't had my serious accident yet. Just a few traffic knockoffs in the '80s, resulting in two 3° separated shoulders. No broken bones yet. It's not gonna stop me from riding though, unless I'm...

    Do you mean the Tektro R539AG (47-57mm) Nutted? VO doesn't appear to list 'em now. The amazon ones I saw are mega-reach for cruisers. Jim, when you find a source, would you post it here please?

    My close friend had this operation, and he's still kicking ten years later an is quite active at 65. It's understandable that you're scared - especially so when you have had a competitive spirit and...

    I agree - there's a lot of speculating about materials going on here. Data is not shown. Does anyone have a photo of a delaminated pad?

    I've seen a Serotta Legend Ti on de bay go for ~$1200 recently. You just have to be ready to put our money down. I spent a huge amount of time futzing and lurking for a 58-60cm before I decided that...

    I work in medical science, and though I am a generalist in training, I read enough medical stuff to be very skeptical of the benefits of both vitamins and "nutraceuticals" such as chondroitin. And...

    Strngely, I keep imagining that someone will market a quasi-durable bubble-wrap type passive bumper pad layer in a short and jersey, to decrease the force on one's shoulders and hip as one slams onto...

    I like the concept. I'd like to see what sort of lubrication one would use, an idea of service life, etc. Might be interesting on a single speed rear in commuter bikes. Good luck to them!
