    This can be more complex than you think. Still, the most sensible thing to do is try the easy stuff first, changing shoes and pedals. I have really bad foot pain when I ride more than a couple of...

    If your wife doesn't ride much, don't give her cleats. Just let her use so-called platform pedals. They're fine.

    My wife can use toe clips just fine, but she recently decided to do away with them....

    If you want to get faster, you can. But you don't have to, unless you want to. I think 90 minutes can be fine for that distance. It's not as slow as molasses. The best thing about it is that you're...

    My wife occasionally rides without me, and I have implored her to be slightly self reliant. One problem is that her hands just aren't very strong. It makes a bigger difference than you might think....

    You make fair points, tjspiel, but my opinion remains as it is. I didn't -- and won't -- use the word "necessary," because I think it helps to have the skills, but I can't claim it's necessary. Most...

    I think mechanical skills are somewhat relevant. You need more mechanical skills to cycle than to drive a car. Cars need a lot less maintenance per mile traveled and even per hour used. Bikes must be...

    It's hard to express. It rarely seems to make sense to spend a lot more than what others spend to get what appears to be the same functionality. But when you get a dynamo setup, you realize that you...

    GordoTrek, that's outstanding. Next, you two will be building a rear wheel with a 3-speed hub. Right? ;)

    brandon98, thanks for the clue. My mistake is probably using a double FD. I'll check to see if I did.

    Color doesn't matter. In fact, there is an argument in favor blackwall tires: it is said to stand up to UV best. I happen to like tan sidewalls, but that's because of my age and sentimentality. I'm...

    My McLean is almost done. Tiagra brifters and rear derailleur. The front derailleur is an Ultegra, and maybe that's why the shifter doesn't work. It doesn't pull enough cable. Any hints are...

    I'm with FBinNY in that I don't advocate for or against mirrors. If someone asks if they help, I say they help me. I've been using one for only a couple of years now, and I've been doing a lot of...

    It isn't clear that he is riding against traffic. In some areas, they let motorists park the wrong way, which would make the street look like a one-way street.

    Skewers do bend, sometimes with the axle not bending. I can't explain it, but it happens.

    I led NJ's first tweed ride in about 2010. We did it in May, and it was fun. It was already too hot to be wearing a tweed jacket, though. In London, they hold them in January. Their Januaries are not...

    Last night, I encountered over 20 wrong way cyclists. It was dark, and whether they were going to go left or right as we approached each other was far too unclear. It really messed up my mellow, so...

    With a little effort, you should be able to get much more than that. On the other hand, if you're OK with letting it go that cheap, I won't stop you. You've done nice work on it.

    I like this idea. I use Garmin to track my miles. I like the idea of increasing my average mileage. As it is, I ride only about 130 miles a month. Not sure what kind of goal to set for myself, but I...
