    I rented from Boss Frogs in Kihei. They gVe me a Fuji carbon bike with 12/27 rear that suited me just fine.

    You are getting into scope creep here. You'll replace those 2 items, then find you need something else, then something else yet again, oh, and the shifters aren't compatible with the brake levers,...

    I'm just guessing a bent hanger myself. Whenever there is some mysterious problem with shifting that no amount of adjusting seems to correct it turns out to be a bent hanger. If the other parts are...

    Every 100 miles for a chain lube is overkill for sure. It will need lube but not that often. When mine gets dirty I'll clean it and lube, and every now and then I go around and just lube. Since I...

    I remember the ride up the Canadian side from Fort Erie to Niagara Falls to be pleasant, but it has been about 40 years since I last did it on a bike. I don't know if they've added a trail or not.

    I have a commuter bike that looks like hell, but is actually built up with new dynamo wheels and XT components. It is a 1990 Trek mtb frame that I bought on eBay and it doesn't attract attention. ...

    I like my 10 speed dyna-sys on my commuter bike. XT for the derailleurs, Deore for the shifters. It shifts effortlessly and accurately, and I can do multiple shifts in either direction. I built it...

    I still have the same problems now as I did last year. There are never bikes when you want them and the docks don't work. On the day of Bike Expo at the pier, I took a Citibike and tried to dock at...

    I also was looking at brighter and brighter LED lights, but then I went with a dynamo hub (Shimano 3N72) and light (B&M Cyo Premium). These put out plenty of light where you need it without blinding...

    I put on padded shorts and when it is cold I put my leg warmers on. It's a 10 mile each way commute, too long to wear my office clothes. I'd be drenched by the time I get to the office. I change...

    I was using Bear Mountain as a training ride for my climb up Mt Haleakala in Maui. It is the same grade more or less, but a lot shorter. I think the first town in Maui, Makawao, is twice as high as...

    I've done the VCP part of the trail slowly on my 700x23 tires. You really have to watch where you're going. And yes, stay away if it has rained. I went by the trailhead just yesterday but I didn't...

    That sounds and looks like a tempting ride for myself. What percent grades are we talking about? And should I assume I want a road bike for that? 2500' is more climbing than you can do here in the...

    This was my wife's idea to ride, but I'm sure I'll hear nothing but complaints while we're doing it, and my kids too as I'm sure they'd rather just be out spending their meager inheritance. ;)

    A couple of things. We will not have a car, since parking it would be expensive and being New Yorkers that is just the normal state of things. We'll buy tourist passes to Muni that'll keep us...

    Start with the dedicated bike lanes if you are worried, these are usually OK. The West Side Greenway is safe, bike paths on the bridges are safe. In the outer boroughs you should just stay off the...

    I'm taking the entire family to SF for vacation May21-25 and would like to do a ride with them. It would be me, my wife and my 3 kids, all over 18 at this point, so no littles here. As much as I'd...

    Points 2 and 3 above only apply to rear wheels, and a dynamo hub is on the front. So if you are only putting a front on you should be good, if you have the reach with your brakes. But even that is...
