    You mean the "letters" documenting controlled roll out studies that were performed on various sizes of tires, run at various pressures, with results that were repeated?

    Maybe seat of the pants...

    Maybe they would like to sell you a new frame/bike?



    Not a fair question, I weigh almost half as much as you do. Would I ride it at your weight? Still yes.

    Great day to buy studded tires!

    And get FREE money!

    A couple of days ago I visited one of my local bike shops to buy a freewheel for my new single speed bike. While there, I started to admire a Schwalbe winter marathon tire on...

    IMO they lack too much in the robustness department. Any crash, tiny crack, scratch, or bike rack/garage induced scrapes, has the owner worried about integrity and replacement. (and rightfully so,...

    I agree, and will add that a wider tire is also safer. I will never be running 23's or 25's unless I'm looking for a bone jarring ride, along with a greater risk of crashing.

    My new tires are...

    Hahaha, yes, "dispatch" has more than one definition.



    Agreed. :thumb: I would've.

    Agreed. That's why it's better to keep our spending to ourselves. And avoid giving a direct answer regarding cost, when some busy bodies ask.

    Don't those things snap more often than aluminum posts?

    I wouldn't hack it.

    Agreed. It depends somewhat on the frame... and how heavy the rider is.

    +1. I've been training in martial arts for 25 years. Avoiding fights is lesson #1 . Oddly enough, number two is quickly dispatching creepy fixie riders.

    Agreed.

    OP: Even if posters are, in your opinion, answering incorrectly, writing paragraph after paragraph telling them so is not helping you get constructive feedback. It turns people away.

    If they honk you know they see you, and are unlikely to hit you. Their honking also alerts other drivers nearby that something is going on, which will get them to pay attention also.

    That's actually one of the better choices in a department store bike. I'd ride it.

    Like others have said, just go through the entire bike and then enjoy.

    Keep us updated with how it goes.

    I too feel empathy for the animals that are hit by cars, but they had a natural life up to that point. Not so for the majority of the animals we eat.

    My "collection" fluctuates. I have about 15 right now, sold 6 so far this year... enough to pay for my new Raleigh. I get many dirt cheap, or sometimes even for free. For me it's a fun hobby that...

    I think I would faint if I found a bike with a sticker from the now long gone shop I worked at in 1977.

    Someone who wants to lower their risk of plowing high speed into an animal that could jump into the road at random in the darkness.

    The fenders you linked will work fine, as long as you get the U-stays. You'll be sorry if you don't.

    Also, you may need to make up a bracket to attach the fender to the top of your longer than...
