    Generally, if you'll check the owner's manual/warranty/instructions on any bike, you'll find that they don't recommend motorizing it. So when you start looking for the best bike to motorize, it's...

    I think the traditional approach is to get the cheapest crappiest bike you can find, that's barely safe to ride at 8 mph, slap a motor on it to go 30 mph, discover it sounds like you're riding a...

    One thing I will point out is that the heavier a bicycle is, the better a kickstand works- it's the bike's weight that keeps it from blowing over in wind. So as they make lighter bikes, kick stands...

    I think those people standing around down lower were lookouts for that very thing. Agreed on breaking my neck. My concern would be if I came off the tricycle, I'd be afraid I'd roll to the bottom...

    Ride all you can in the meantime?
    Check if you can get an elevation profile of the ride, and try to make sure your shorter rides have a similar amount of hill-climbing.

    You seem to have the expectation that anyone that has a newer better bike should always ride faster than you. Reality is, people buy bikes they like, not bikes suited to their specific speed. I've...

    Avid BB 5 Brake issue

    Hey y'all,
    Periodically, I go to adjust the brakes on my Raleigh Sojourn. Sometimes, that works out quick and easy. Sometimes not.

    One of the minor-but-major issues is visible in the attached...

    I just eat what sounds good at the time. Early in the ride, that may be Twinkies and stuff, late in a ride, that may be Vienna sausages or Beanie Wienie.

    When I first started riding, I got a cheap mountain bike and the saddle felt like sitting on a 2x4. I assumed it was because it was a skinny little saddle, bought a $20 cruiser saddle on it, and all...

    If you don't already own it, I'd skip it. If you're trying to salvage something you already have, that's different.

    I find first off, that people's ideas of what constitutes "safe" bicycling varies considerably.
    I find secondly, that talking to your own friends about this doesn't change how they ride, so the...

    I assumed down on the Texas border, that it was just a matter of practicality. There's a lot of towns along both sides of the border, a lot of ways to get across there. Get a few miles from the...

    I'm on my third pair of cycling shoes after about 67,000 miles and none of them had laces.

    I remember at one charity ride, they mentioned that they actually did a "road kill removal" prior to the ride, but that's not sweeping the course.

    Three or four years ago, I did the Texas Time...

    I'm all in favor of just riding at what seems like a comfortable cadence, and that isn't the same for everyone. If you're specifically training for something, that's different, but if you're just...

    Sometimes you can have random symptoms that turn out to be nothing, but it'll be worthwhile seeing the doctor just for the peace of mind.

    First, check the rear tire over very carefully. I find on my bikes, noises in front sound like they're coming from the front. Noises in the back also sound like they're coming from the front. ...

    Titanium frames have a certain amount of demand, but that demand is pretty well filled, too. So if you want one, you can get it.

    With a car, they slap a transmission in it at the factory, and you go drive 100,000 miles with it. They put brakes in at the factory, you replace pads every 50,000 or however many miles.
