    Nothing useful. It really belongs with the 700, as in a 700c size rim which differentiated it from the 700a, 700b, and 700d rims all of which were designed to have an outer tire diameter of about...

    Which shouldn't be much of a surprise when the question asked is for "cheap, calorie-dense food that travels well."
    But in my touring experience there are also lots of fresh farm stands and...

    Certainly could be those causes, but I wouldn't rule out spokes that are too loose either. Usually out-of-the-saddle riding involves more side-to-side swaying of the bike synched to the pedal stroke...

    Scary that a professional driver has such a poor understanding of the basic right-of-way traffic laws.

    No problem using your current tubes as long as you're careful not to get part of the tube pinched between the tire bead and the edge of the rim. Having a tube that's wider than intended for a given...

    You should consider how happy you are with the current range of gears on your bike. Do you have much use for the very highest gear (11t in the back and big chain ring)? If not then I agree with the...

    I wonder if any of the difference is due to the 'Idaho rules' on Stop signs & red lights - i.e. that a bicyclist can legally treat a Stop sign as if it were a Yield sign and can treat a red traffic...

    I wouldn't be surprised if the poll suffered from significant self-selection bias. I've only really had any interest in toe-overlap since I acquired a bike that had that characteristic a number of...

    I suppose you could, but why? The main advantage of a thin, light tube is that it reduces the wheel's rolling resistance since less energy is lost when the tube is periodically compressed at the...

    I take most of my biking pictures while riding and find the 'Bento' box on the top tube to work well for that. I find it easier to use a point/shoot camera for pictures while riding since I can...

    Similar experience here. Used a double layer of electrical tape. Worked ok, but after only two decades and about 100,000 miles one of the spoke holes wore through and caused a flat. Of course by...

    This would be true if you were getting all your food from naturally growing plants or by catching wild animals. But most of us eat food that's grown on farms where they use lots of 'sequestered...

    Which is also its biggest weakness. It's not that heavy since the battery size (and therefore the range/power) is limited. And having the battery built into the wheel means you can't conveniently...

    I'd expect the bike to be fine with that amount as long as you aren't jumping curbs or hitting potholes at full speed. Luggage racks on the bike may have problems depending on their strength and...

    I'd actually expect the opposite - at least for someone who does a reasonable job of locking up their bike. Sure there will tend to be more total bike thefts if there are lots of bikes, but that...

    My bikes currently have a variety of crank lengths: 175mm (road bike), 170mm (touring and folder), and 165mm (tandem). I really don't notice much of a difference but I do tend to use somewhat lower...

    Why not combine the 46/34 or 50/34 road crank with the 11-34 or 11-36 MTB cassette? I live in a fairly hilly area and many riders replace the original cassettes on their road and hybrid bikes with...

    The skewer isn't supporting your weight - that's done by the axle surrounding it. While a solid axle would have marginally greater strength than one of the same diameter but hollow for a skewer...

    I have two one-man tents. The smaller one is the Eureka Solitaire which could be described as 'bivy-style' - it does have two hoop poles at the front and back but is pretty low to the ground. The...

    Shouldn't be an issue as long as the spoke isn't so long that it extends into the rim channel and can puncture the tube - or that you run out of threads so the nipple can't be tightened properly. ...
