    Heck, HO, please don't get your knickers in a twist - tsl is right - the googleplex has simply upped the ante. Don't leave - instead perhaps consider trying a different platform - or is Android your...

    God, that GB stem is gorgeous! I had a much earlier and lumpier GB stem on a Raleigh Blue Streak. Nice work.
    The only thing I don't like about stripping anodising off is that once the parts are...

    Satch, schweet! And it lands in your lap with a triple, no less, so it won't be a knee killer if you decide to climb some hills fully laden.

    And ya just can't beat the price, unless someone paid...

    I got Zostavax a few years ago, and suggested my wife do it too. Cost us $200 each. Cheap insurance, even if it is not complete protection. Just like a helmet.:eek:

    I may be mistaken, but I think...

    I've been away for a couple of weeks - so I just saw your report - and was shocked by the senseless violence against you. Am glad you survived and sad to see some negative comments from various...

    Sort of a requiem - here's my '82 Stan Pike, built for me, with an admittedly peculiar seat tilt - clamp kept loosening. I snapped this photo one day without much thought about proper photography a...

    Me too. I have a pair of Speedplay Frogs and cleats, and I just can't bring myself to put 'em on.

    My favorite is the med students who ride no-hands the wrong way up a busy two-lane one way street while texting. Clearly didn't do their ER rotation yet.

    Fit should be the deciding factor, I feel. That, and whether you want a visor or not. I replaced a serviceable cheap Schwinn-branded helmet with a Giro Atmos (I) a year and a half ago, because it fit...

    I think fear of what I have accumulated might not be enough, and fear of the unknown, was what was keeping me from retiring. The fact that I like my job and don't need to retire kept me from thinking...

    Start looking for a replacement 6 speed set of cogs along with the chain. At .75%, you're going to soon start ruining your front chainrings. And wear accelerates.

    Chain pitch is the same for them...

    Nice molded contoured elastomer too. I can't imagine that it would be very robust at the split section. But what do you want for only $100? I see the Brompton peeps also buy titanium water bottles....

    A staggering find, and a steal. The tapered Colorado Concept tubing was perhaps the most insightful recent advance in steel bikes, imo, making for really stable geometry. It's a pity that Serotta...

    I enjoyed Phil and Paul's commentary back in the 80's. It's Eurosport for me now though.
    Sean fleshes out the rider's perspective well during the commentary. The icing for me is to hear Greg in the...

    That Bontrager looks like a good choice, jyl. I had a few Bells before springing for a Giro Atmos, choice of which I was dismayed - but only for the lack of visor. Even with the coolest wraparounds,...

    I bought a used bike last year that had a Selle San Marco ASPide Ti rail. Flat and no sliding whatsoever, and I'm a guy that's used to Brooks. You can get 'em for not much on da bay.

    There are enough emotionally ill people in the world that you're bound to run into one now and then. Every once in a while I think to myself that I should be packing. But then, I might end up doing...

    You scored a nice one Randy. I bought a '72 new. Still have it, rode it yesterday. I always liked the chromed fastback. Mine came with the really nice 3TTT triangular-extension stem. Have fun with it!

    Well, at least you crashed on the next-to-last day. Many moons ago I crashed in my first hour of a planned two week tour through rural Northeast US. Riding partner stopped short to hear what I had...

    This is the real reason I get slower as I get older ... honest! I never learned to fall properly when I was less brittle.
