    I ride with gloves all the time. I didn't know over padded gloves can cause numbness. I may start to try other brands. I like the full finger gloves. Last January, when I took a fall (road rut),...

    I wrap my front light in a lot of black electrical tape. You would have to have a knife to get the tape off the light and bars. Not a full proof method but I still have a light.

    Yes, that was the first thing I checked. The tires say inflate to a max of 45 pounds. I didn't read this and for most of the tire's life, I was using 60 pounds. The front one also has this same...

    Is There Something Wrong With My Tires?

    443981

    I noticed my Continental Town and Country tires seem to be coming apart. Do you all think this is so or is it just the black rubbing off the tire? I have only about 400 miles on them....

    I get passed more often than I pass others. The best one was a couple of months ago. There were four Roadies riding in front of me when I turned onto the street. I caught the last one in the group...

    This January, I hit a rut in the road and took a spill. Four years ago, when my bike had a suspension seat post, it was too tall when I was not on it and just right once I sat. I was stopping at a...

    I look the store up on Yelp. He has excellent ratings. I hope this was a rare mistake. To be fair, I would not want to mention the name. The pump that started it all was a purchase from a...

    FOLLOW UP:
    Yesterday, I took the wheel back (with the bike attached). The Tech. did a good job of getting the tire round. Today, the tire went flat. I decided to fix it myself. When I went to...

    When I was 390 plus pounds, I rode a Huffy 7 speed cruiser. As I got comfortable and started hopping curbs like when I was a kid, I started popping spokes. I went to the swap meet and brought a set...

    I've had a couple of Roadies stop and help me with a flat when I first started commuting. I have had the opportunity to stop three times as of late. Each time, they had it under control. The last...

  19. I Took a Spill and I guess It's Time for a New Helmet

    Today, while riding, my tire got stuck in a road rut. I was slowing for the stop light and was going about 7 to 8 miles per hour. The bike (and me) fell over and I hit my shoulder and head. The...

    I wanted to update everyone who offered their helpful opinions. The noise never went away. I got a almost new rim that was taken off a Fuji Roubaix 3.0. The result of the switch is no more noise...

    When I'm commuting at night and the lanes are not lit. I see riders coming toward me with these small front lights. The reflection of my light on their peddles is almost a bright.

    I am not planning to make the switch right now. It was just an idea. I ride the Fuji most of the time. The Cannondale is a little too big for me.
  25. Can I Change my 48 Tooth Gear to a 50 Tooth One?
