    I ride Panaracer T-Servs on my commuters. They have a anti-puncture layer. So good, so far.

    I think the percussive shock of a metal hammer on the box wrench helps break the bond between the freewheel and the hub. Hasn't failed me yet where the freewheel slots weren't chewed up.

    I do something similar except I use a dedicated box end wrench with a 12" handle and a large ball peen hammer.

    Here's my '86 World Sport. I'm pretty sure that this World Sport is unique in having Campagnolo Mirage and Shimano Alivio components but I got a screaming deal on the crankset and it was black. What...

    I'm skeptical. With stuff like this, you have to have the light source very close to your eyes to see the reflectance.

    I put a VO Grand Cru triple crankset on my Paramount. I live in hilly terrain and I don't walk up hills.

    I'm a Philistine. I buy the black cork tape from China on Ebay. I can't see a difference in the feel of it from the more expensive stuff at the local LBS, $3 with free shipping. I like the way it...

    I almost always use quill-to-threadless adapters since the wide choice of threadless stems makes fitting a bike easier and greatly widens the choice of handlebars. I like stems with faceplates and I...

    I wonder if the 650b revolution for road and touring is fading. I had been thinking about 650b but since I have converted a couple of mountain bikes to drop bars my interest is low. 26x1.5 wheels are...

    I would say that the older Paramounts had longer wheelbases, almost look like touring frames.

    I hate people on multiuse paths that move to the left when I call out "On your left". I also hate people that move to the left when I ding my bell at them. WTF. WTF IS THAT.
