    We ride together nearly all the time. Sometimes I'll do a second solo ride because I can ride further and faster but on a typical 30mi ride I will "push" ahead a few times, leaving her behind for a...

    I would echo Caloso's comments regarding CO2. It's very handy. Twice now I have found myself with a slow loss of air that I was able to deal up with a very quick blast of CO2. In the rain I was able...

    I'd guess my LBS would probably replace the fork. Forks can be easily swapped out in most cases. If the LBS thinks they really may have screwed up it's not unlikely they'd replace the fork with a new...

    This falls under the "risk to reward" category from my perspective. What are the odds of being sued by a friend for whom you do a bike repair? Not much, but they increase quite a bit when you start...
