    I think they're comparable cities, in terms of both bike use and theft.

    Idk what the official numbers are in NYC, but I'm thinking theft recently rose again after a drop in the 2000s. Some of this...

    i would definitely need drops on a folder.

    I took a ride on a flat bar a few weeks ago and wanted to climb off immediately. I have a bad bone spur on one thumb that makes the basic flatbar...

    sigh, I know...it's not good.



    yes, a folder should work. I need to learn more about them, I have no clue about prices/features, and am worried about weight limits (I'm 220 lbs)


    I agree- I...

    exactly - My apple stuff had two or three drives fail after only a couple of years - they were all Hitachi Desk stars ca. 2007-8. I read official tally failure rate reports which placed them at the...

    /\ That's actually a great idea - we were just upstate and my wife thought of that. I don't think we were far enough outside NYC to make a big difference in prices but what you;re saying makes sense....

    This. I had sworn by WD in the past and have had bad luck with Hitachi. but I see lots of reviews that say the opposite.

    In the end I don't expect any HDD to last forever or be 100% smooth sailing...

    Now that I am locking up daily I have been considering a folder. It's not something I've ever wanted but along practical lines it may be a good option...

    I should add -

    my current 10 year oldish bikes are seen in my sig - Orbea w/ dura ace and flashy euskaltel paint (methinks a clarion call for theives), and a stealthy black Cannondale, but with...

    Heh - I knew I would get that response - I love my old steel bike. But I know me - I have looked at a few other old steel rides from the 80s and I would never leave them as is. Between being a...

    Thanks Nick - I've seen a few recommendations for the reds, even though on paper they;re not supposed to be designed for an external backup?

    Just to be clear, we have two macs; this TC will only...

    From what I read online, the speeds are indeed slow but that shouldn't be a huge issue for my use - it would just be for backups via Time Machine, and they're alrady horrendously slow due to wireless...
  14. Need Opinions Re: bike lockup/theft avoidance etc.

    I'm always struggling with the 'which bike to leave locked up' issue.

    For years I have been lucky enough to bring my bike inside at work. The last six months or so I've had to lock up on the...

    I need to replace the internal Hard Drive in my Apple Time capsule. It's the first gen 1TB model from 2008 (A1254 MB277LL/A).

    Thanks! I think it's not too bad - I just did about 5 miles on it and I hammered a little here and there to test it - a little more blippy laterally now, after riding, but I'll snug it up. I think...

    Thanks, I agree - I didn't try the bend-back method yet; it looked like the area affected was very small - due to the short, sharp skid. I've gotten it fairly true laterally....I just hate that when...

    So I got it home, started with the rim... no major damage I could see (cracks, scratches, dings, etc) other than a couple of flea bites on the edge of the rim on one side - that was due to me hitting...

    Thanks Guys - I had assumed maybe this was a typical situation to diagnose, but I see what you mean about variables. I honestly didn't have time to examine the rim closely; I needed to roll the bike...

    Hmm, true, I didn't consider that. But I'm used to it from using brifters, so it should be okay.

    This would be going on an old steel bike with DT shifters, for short commuting rides, so not a...
