    I actually have a riding buddy who wears tighty whities under his shorts, and tucks a cotton t in. I just smile and give him a thumbs up. Pretty strong rider, too. I gave up on telling folks not to...

    My lazer helmet has a tiny built in red blinkie on the back in case you get caught out after dark.

    Bibs over a t-shirt and underwear ftw. I carry a radar speedgun to see if people are going fast enough to warrant bike shorts. If not, they get a boo from me as they ride past. In all seriousness the...

    I use both round and ovalized rings regularly. My take:
    round rings=sweet!
    oval rings=sweet!
    shifting seems fine for both

    This is illogical because it rarely gets used, but my fave is the giant t-handle 10mm park Allen wrench. I only used it for removing free hubs, but it was like a tomahawk to hold just felt so good in...

    On those brakes, centering is achieved with the adjusting screw on top. If you just turn the calipers with your hand, they will return to off center after a few pulls on the lever. Perhaps they just...

    My land line gives me the option to add numbers to a list that will not get through. I've added probably 10 or so, and rarely get solicited anymore. Comcast, btw.

    If you run out of options on the BB, try heating the BB shell(I've had success using a small flame, judiciously applied) it will expand and loosen its grip on the BB. A skewer works well to hold the...

    The shock is probably fine, the spring has a 1.5" stroke, and is a 750 lb coil. The 4.25 inches is the rear wheel travel. That frame may not actually need any new bushings of shock, I would...

    My take is that he has the stem angled up, and a stack of spacers above the stem. He's wondering if he should chop the excess steerer or switch to a zero degree stem at the top of the spacer stack....

    Does your steerer have a maximum spacer limit that you know of? If not, then it is mostly an aesthetic choice. Personally I'd use the stem to achieve my position rather than a large stack of spacers.

    I would never think of asking for a different price than advertised, because I don't want to be a dick. My LBS now won't let me pay full retail because they love me so much.

    I work in a hospital, on my feet, and swear by croc bistros. I tried most other types(clogs, sneakers, walking shoes) and my feet would always hurt at the end of the day. Not anymore. If those...

    I get them occasionally. The only sure way to get rid is to stay off the saddle (meaning for me, running-yuk- or literally only riding standing up)for at least a couple weeks, maybe more. Kinda sucks...

    IME the building is easy(spoke calculators do the math for you and Sheldon.com shows you how to lace). The lateral and vertical truing and tensioning can be the trickier part.
