    I looked at that rack and was very tempted, but didn't want to risk my membership. I ended up with a folding bike (Tern Link D8) that fits in the back storage area. It's an okay compromise, but I...

    Don't be discouraged. Wheel building may seem simple in theory, but missing one step can mess it up. Ask your mechanic if you can watch him rebuild it, or if there's a class the shop offers. Or...

    Thanks! I would have loved a Brompton, but it was out of my budget. I originally went to the shop to look at a Dahon, but the Link was the only one they had new (and the used Dahon's hadn't aged...

    My Link D8 is my first and only folding bike. I bought it when my car died and I decided that rather than replace it, I'd use a Car2go (smart car). Since the nearest Car2go might be anywhere from a...

    Ouch. Good luck and keep plugging away at it. My dressage instructor had both hips replaced a few years ago; it was a long recovery but he's back in the saddle again and happy to be pain free.
