    You need a derailleur that goes with the biggest chainrings (road) but you need one with the proper pull ratio for mountain shifters. I would say, "ask RANS" but they've just changed hands and...

    The last bunch I bought were the cheapest model from Pricepoint. The pads were terrible - they were so stiff they bruised my inner thigh - but that was okay since I ripped the pads out of them...

    Not that 'bents are a last resort. Au contraire, they can be a good FIRST choice. But they're a more expensive solution - not good for someone trying to keep costs down.

    I occasionally get it, even with my borderline-high BP. Usually right after a hard ride. Can be caused by dehydration, or just have a low pulse and doing something before your HR can catch up.

    For those who aren't of the recumbent persuasion, this is a Rocket.

    Paths/MUPs are separate little worlds with different rules. OP was asking about riding on roads.

    Sort of irrelevant for a recumbent. But, if I were on my upright, the first response would be to stop. If I did need to come to a full stop, I'd have a second or two to get off the saddle and put one...

    I've found that it's usually safer for both of us if I just pass them w/o warning. I usually give 3-5 feet of clearance, and am always ready to give them more if they wobble.

    Edit: I'll also say,...

    Biker395,

    I've never done it, but the National 24-Hour Challenge is coming up soon. It looks like only 1-2 people can hit that 400-mile mark in a given year.

    You're considering upgrading a bike that's no longer in production. Does that mean that the frame is disc-capable? I agree with Osco, I'd just put disc on the rear (if the frame can take it.) If the...

    I have some unlined lobster shells. I think they're Trek brand. Mittens are slightly warmer, but also a bit more hassle activating the brakes.

    I wouldn't call it "wobbling" but I have more side-to-side movement when I'm tired. For a recumbent rider, staying steady and straight while working hard on an extremely steep climb at near-stall...

    I always keep my eyes open for a newer Rocket with a 2" main tube, just for a kickin-around bike. Of course, since I'm ME, I'd then be forced to hot-rod it. :)

    You should realize that keeping cadence up is only a technique for limiting how hard you're pushing. The cadence itself isn't anything magic. And like TSL alludes to, it only applies to seated...

    Right. What happens to the bike when its integrated computer is 10 years old and obsolete, or worse, breaks and there's no cheap replacement? Do you throw the whole bike away because it's cheaper to...

    Many years ago I bought a Rev-X wheel for my Baron. It's always had a teeny bit of play in the bearings, but on Thursday's ride, the wheel was so sloppy I was afraid to go over about 20 mph. Great,...

    The left turn signal - left arm up at 90 degrees, is usually unrecognizable to a motorist behind the bike. The rider is usually hunched over the bars and the left arm ends up pointing mostly forward,...

    Not counting 'Arte Johnsons" I've only had one in the past 10,000+ miles, and that was from not paying enough attention and getting my front wheel caught in a crack. If you're suffering multiple...

    Nope, the gear inches are the equivalent diameter of a tire if it were using a 1:1 drive (tricycle wheel.) The development is how far you'd travel, which is the gear inches times pi.

    Both sides can be reckless, but when a cyclist is reckless he (she?) threatens mostly himself. When a driver is reckless, someone ELSE can die.
