    I disagree with many folks here. I think putting upright bars on it would be fine, but forget about putting indexed shifting on. If indexed shifting is important, get a new bike.

    I love my combo pedals. I have three sets on three bikes. Two are the Wellgo/Nashbar kind, and one is the Electra.

    While I appreciate being able to walk in my SPD shoes, it does make a big...

    No, I didn't. I ended up running the cable over the rear rack to the tail light.

    I could take an ohmmeter to the fenders to see if it is correct. I won't be able to do it until next week.

    I fail to see the appeal to radial lacing at all, in any kind of wheel.

    dcsix, bend that derailleur back into shape. You might be able to do it yourself. Just make sure the jockey pulleys form a vertical plane with the freewheel sprockets. Or you could have your local...

    If we had 12 kmh winds here, I would call it a calm day!

    Oh, not too bad. I guess mine was heavily equipped.

    Andy_K, I think you're mostly as good as the masters. The main difference between your skill and theirs is that they're faster. I'm sure your wheels are as good as wheels can be. You weren't the...

    See if the chain is rubbing inside the front derailleur. Look very carefully while you crank hard, so be safe.

    oddjob2, that Trek 720 is quite handsome as you have outfitted one. I had one briefly, and I found it too heavy. How much does that bike weigh? I assume you didn't weigh the frameset alone.

    That's a clever setup, rhm. The light looks like the often-mentioned Magicshine clone, and I believe those lights normally run on about 8.4 volts. Interesting that this one runs on 5 volts. Perhaps...

    kickstart says his speed plateaued, and I suspect this will happen at the point where you stop caring.

    I record most of my commutes with Garmin, and I just checked. My times have definitely...

    I prefer the big names in tires. They are at the forefront of R&D and have the best breakthroughs. These breakthroughs allow you to have things such as puncture resistance and good riding qualities,...

    I wear them for safety also. I don't wear them on every ride, because it's not always convenient, but I wear them on most rides. Scraping skin off the fingers and palms is a b*tch.

    You will probably feel the difference. Hard to say if you will like it. You have to try it to know.

    Lazy? As far as I can tell, given the constraints of this type of conversation, i.e. how fast a response is expected, google is the best tool at hand for the job. On the other hand, if you have more...

    Sticky: Encounter with a wily squirrel

    I'm immensely lucky that I get to ride along this path, and it is most of the length of my commute.

    This morning, a squirrel crossed my path, but then once he was out of safety, he decided to head...

    And butted tubing was introduced in 1897, so while it has been improved, it's not a new invention. The article is decent, but the author isn't as knowledgeable as many of us here.

    Clincher tires don't get that flat when deflated, so I'm voting for tubular.
