    But at least with a layoff, you can honestly answer that question that's been showing up more and more lately on applications, "Have you ever been fired for any reason?"

    I know which chainring I'm using in the front (there are only 3), unless I try to shift poorly on a hill and it doesn't shift. As far as the back, if I'm worried I might be in crosschaining danger,...

    One thing I wonder about noisy chains: Sound waves are a form of energy, usually created by friction. If chains (or for that matter high end hubs on road bikes) are more noisy, does that mean they...

    Is there no such thing as an open ended return ticket anymore? Just curious, I don't know how much such things cost.

    Why does indoor vs outdoor matter. In either case, doesn't the shape of the tire remain the same (less lightbulb shape, more smooth curve on a wider rim)?

    It's a brooks knock off saddle that I have back as far as it will go in the rails before the rails narrow and would like to go a bit further back. I like that saddle and would prefer to change the...

    Speaking of 26.4 seatposts, does anyone know of one with setback? I haven't run across many and the Dura Ace one I did find was nowhere near long enough (like David, I need a tall one) and the price...

    My Concorde Aquila has similar issues. With wide rims (which make the tire a bit taller) the 23 mm GP4000S I have on there has precious little room to breathe. I'd really wanted to put 25s on (and...

    Congrats. It gets more fun when you have to get out the drill/leather punch to start putting new holes in. Of course, those usually end up becoming belts to wear on old jeans (usually also too big)...

    Come on now, behind is the proper way to do it. It looks cleaner. Plus, if you have a cat, you don't come home to find the entire roll unrolled all over your floor.

    Hell, if you're honest, in a future project, they may decide to cut out the middle man and come directly to you (and pass your name to others). If you just stall and say I'll get to it soon, your...

    Can you just buy exercise offsets and save yourself the time of working for them? Seems like they'd be cheaper than carbon offsets? Just find some stoner and pay him to set around watching tv...

    Did you ever try the whole bending the frame back thing? Now that you have the replacement frame anyway, if it goes wrong, you haven't lost anything, but, if it works, you've got your grandfather's...

    That is a great looking frame for entry level. I love the chrome on the lugs and socks, and the pump pegs are always great. Did it used to have centerpull brakes? Looks like a cable stop coming...

    Did he forget to put a seat on the road bike? There are lots of things that I can think of that get my heart rate going faster. Some of them are also good workouts.

    But red bikes are faster. This is a known and proven fact. If his bike is red that completely changes all the other calculations of effort, including brand.

    The lines I'm most concerned about are the nasty grout in your bathroom. Clean that stuff up before you get some sort of infection dude.

    Wow it took me a while to figure out what this was even supposed to mean. Some of the best spelling I've seen from a soon to be banned user in a while.
