    I watched the initial video. The guy said it had "hydraulic" brakes when it obviously has the cheapest mechanical disk brakes available.

    I would imagine all trailer hitches have 2 axes of freedom, or else it'd be mighty hard to turn. (You couldn't lean the bike!) If she got a bike with disk brakes she could probably get away with a...

    Definitely another option. I personally love those bikes and would love to own one. However, in the states it may be hard to find for relatively cheap. (The basic full bike is 2000 pounds ~ $3000.) I...

    Welcome back! I saw your very general title and was going to come in and joke around, but since your inquiry is sincere enough, here's my equally sincere advice. If you want to child seat, go buy...

    You guys are crazy about your privacy. Have you ever been on a boat on a canal at night? You can see into every single house along the canal/river.

    Blinds were invented for a reason.

    This. Any dog that bites strangers should be put down. I hate saying that, but it's true. (I'm a dog person :( )

    Why would it have to be a lefty fork? Why not a traditional fork with suspension???

    Here's the thing. Generally bikes that need suspension do not need that much aero, and visa versa. Adding a...

    Interesting but unnecessary. That's what your arms are for! I really don't think it'd help much in terms of reducing the stress on your hands/palms. You're still exerting a force on the handlebars to...

    This! Alternatively bike pogies. I have very bad circulation in my hands so these are a must for me. I often wear medium thick gloves AND use the bike pogies and my hands are OK, not great, but OK....

    I've only once "ran dry" on my mountain bike. However, on most bikes with most people of good cycling fitness, the easiest gear should take you up all but something that's neigh unwalkable. (And...

    I "think" my mountain bike has them? I'm not sure. I never look at them. If you're looking at an indicator on your mountain bike you're not riding fast enough. HOWEVER, on my commuter I like them....

    The OP asked: "Was that wrong?"

    The answer is: Yes.

    He then asked "Could this have caused permanent damage."

    The answer is: Yes.

    But should he worry about it? My opinion is "No, because...

    If it works and it looks straight, you're fine. Make sure the derailleur limit screws are set and ride away. There's nothing wrong with "bending" it by hand except for putting undue stress on the...

    This is wrong. There are times on a cycle where you want to lean like you do on a motorocycle (meaning the wheels, bike, and your body form a straight line), there are other times where you want to...

    If the shifters are really that stiff, then there's something wrong. Any properly adjusted shifters (regardless of price) will shift smoothly with little effort. I'd hazard a guess that you have some...

    If there truly IS a difference in spring tension, a shorter link cable will not help, it'll just pull the closer arm into the the rim. The springs don't ALWAYS have to be in the same hole. On older...

    Good info. I'm not a huge fan of the full length cable housing solution though. First, water likes to get in those and rust. Second, very long cable housings tend to cause a lot of friction, even...

    2 locks. One chain and one cable. They take different tools to cut. I've tried cutting a cable with bolt cutters. It doesn't work.

    Everything else is simply how and where you park your bike.

    I've seen exactly opposite. All of the old 3 speeds I've seen have a pulley where the top tube and seat tube meet. Bare cable is run from the cable stop on top tube all of the way down to the IGH.

    Your wheel could have moved in the dropouts. Check that first. Does the pad rub all of the way around? Or is it intermittent?

    Ha, bike mechanics don't make big bucks. :)

    If the bike had been ill-maintained, the worn out chain would prematurely wear out the cassette as well. So it is possible that both WERE worn out and...

    I never put my phone in a case. I find lifeproof cases far too bulky. Honestly, if you're responsible enough you shouldn't need a phone case. Certainly not one that's waterproof/goosecrap...
