    I started off motorcycle touring, and switched to bicycles!

    It used to be that I would spend a week in the summer on my motorcycle. I'd find some good twisties, maybe stop for a music festival...

    I deal by being outside moving on a bike.

    The ones that get under my skin the most, if I let them, are the encouraging ones: "You can do this!" or "Good job!" as I slowly make my way up a hill....

    I have flat bars with bar ends. I'm a big fan of grip/twist shifters in that configuration.

    I feel a lot more secure if I have some source of caffeine on a long ride. I save it for the end -- too early and I need to find a portajohn! -- but for the last 10 miles it can be a big help. I...

    So my replacement 26T chainring arrived yesterday -- a Shimano- and Campagnolo-compatible one made by Origin8 to replace the Sugino that is made to a different "standard". Also got a longer...

    The new 26T front chainring is indeed Sugino -- which has a different lateral offset than Campy/Shimano.

    So first attempt: get a 26T front chainring with Campagnolo/Shimano offset, and get a...

    What's happening is that when I am in the lowest gear (36T in back, 26T in front), the rear derailleur moves upwards enough that there's no space between the derailleur's teeth, the chain, and the...

    I just added a cotton ball to my repair kit, at the suggestion of someone else on the group -- when you get a flat, run the cotton ball along the inside of the tire; it will visibly snag on any...
