    Going over pressure will raise the center of gravity of your vehicle. Probably not a big deal with a Subaru, but that was an issue with Jeep Wranglers from a while back. I've been out of the game a...

    I worked in automobile safety for 5 years. You wouldn't believe how close to the edge some of these cars are built. FWIW, Toyotas always tested the best as far as going beyond minimum safety...

    Use only the suggested numbers on you door panels for your car tires. That number has been set in relation to the roll over tendencies of your vehicle. Whatever performance benefits you may get...

    A ruler is just a punched out piece of metal as well. If a chain checker can be made poorly, it could be just as easily be made accurate.

    A guy driving home after a hard day at work runs over a hipster artist riding his bike in the middle of the street with no lights or reflectors then panics and flees the scene. I see a suspended...

    I've ordered from PlanetX UK when their US branch hasn't carried a product I wanted. It was totally painless. Their website is well set up to handle the exchange rate, absence of VAT, and shipping...

    That's a false dichotomy. You can get the same amount of exercise by riding a Huffy. I'm glad, however, that you like your $7000 bike. Being a tech freak myself, I love when people can appreciate...

    I use valve caps until I lose them which is always.

    When I was in cardiac rehab, I was told by a nurse that some patients couldn't get their heart rates to increase during exercise. I, on the other hand, have a hard time keeping my heart rate from...

    These bikes were as common as shillings over in the UK. Try searching UK eBay or posting a note on the raleigh twenty forums. I have two so I know that tab you're talking about.

    The 105 will have a higher resale value later. Maybe it's the perceived notion that 105 bikes were better to begin with or that Claris is put on cheapo starter bikes.

    Thanks, and in that vein, you could instead use the velcro to hold the front brake closed.

    There's a little gadget that attaches to your downtube and you can it swing over to prevent the wheel from turning. This lets you lean the bike against something without it falling. Maybe someone...

    Anyone who has ever driven in NYC knows that the pedestrians are mostly brain dead. They'll wander aimlessly in front of cars, bikes, each other. Weaving through them as you ride is the only way to...

    Metal wasn't cleaned properly before welding so escaping gas from the heated contaminant will forms a pinhole before the weld cools. Proper cleaning probably costs more than cheap welds.

    Picked this up at a garage sale yesterday. Was a good bike in its day but it's probably been sitting 25 years. I'll make it presentable but not sure how far to take it.

    I'd rather have a kid not ride a bike than ride a bike without a helmet.

    We're talking about kids here. I live across from a school yard. Kids throw their coats and jackets all over the lawn. They could care less where they throw their helmets while they're playing.

    No. I don't believe that -unless an adult poisons their mind. I've seen that regarding seatbelt use many times.

    Children have larger heads in proportion to their bodies than adults do so helmet laws for children make sense. We've had mandatory helmet laws for kids under 14 here for years and kids pretty much...
