    My car has a key fob. I pull that off my keychain and put it under my skinsuit behind my thigh. I wear skinsuits almost exclusively at the track.

    Rest. Lots of sleep. Don't ride. And sleep. Did I mention sleep? Being unconscious for 5-10 minutes means your head injury was SERIOUS. Yes, all caps. Right now you are panicking because you've been...

    It's not a "ripoff" by any means. All the info is there and customs and shipping fees are not the retailer's responsibility. These are typically UK retailers selling primarily to customers in the UK....

    I would not pay $2k for a 10 year old bike with an unknown history, regardless of pedigree. $2k is better spent on a new bike with Ultegra - meaning, modern Ultegra is about as good as...

    Sometimes.

    It's customs and it's statistical. They don't inspect each and every package coming into the US with the same scrutiny. Technically, everything from PBK and Wiggle and all those other...

    Greg, don't be so sensitive. You replied with a holier-than-thou attitude referencing the OP in third person with a canned response that was clearly wrong. Don't be surprised when people call you out...

    Christ people, don't you all read? OP found the problem and fixed it.

    OP, yes, if the rim strip had exposed one of the spoke holes in the rim, this was the problem. Fix that and your flat problem...

    Why is the new chain junk? Just add the links back in. Not that hard.

    I am pretty sure that Contador, along with half the rest of the peloton, are still finding ways to blood dope. I am also pretty sure that you wouldn't be able to hide a motor and battery in a road...

    Armchair quarterbacking.

    There certainly are tires that don't have enough tread to make it very far. Track tires, for instance. The issue is not flat protection; people have been running bikes...

    Aluminum frames tend to use drawn tubes which are heat treated. Straightening might require a post-heat treat to eliminate work hardening. Welding on thin-walled drawn tubing is probably not...

    I don't know. I suspect you don't know either. If you are curious, I'm sure the CDC has their methodology listed somewhere on their site. I am not sure why it matters.

    No offense intended, but why are you getting hit so often? That's a lot of incidents for one person.

    There's been mid-double digits of fatalities amongst how many drivers in Canada? What's the percentage? Please, do the math for me. Your stats bolster my...

    To "signal you are going left" at an intersection, you don't use your hand, you put your bike to the left side of the travel lane. The hand is simply to indicate how you will move before you move. To...
