    A bit of math might help. Let's assume a 50 temperature difference from 80-130. In the scheme of things that's about a 10% rise in absolute temperature, so a 10% rise in pressure. Not all that...

    I know that some time spent in a car won't be an issue. But storing tires, both latex and other materials, inside a car where daily temps can reach 130+, can't be any good. If you're talking about ...

    I suspect that you're seeing the results of changes in friction properties as the rims warm with brake heat. Squeal usually only happens on gentle braking, where the forward force of the rim can...

    Yes, I gathered so from the context. But since you wrote "I am absolutley willing to give FB benefit of the doubt", I figured I'd clear the air.

    Not taking a position here, except to say that I believe that bicycle registration is dumb for a myriad of reasons.

    But I do want to point out a logic failure.

    When a motorist is cited for a...

    With respect, I don't think I need any benefit of the doubt, since I don't know what's in doubt. As for being accused of obscenity, I don't know what that's about, any more than I know what a "Y"...

    Pressuring for changes to infra and taking care of ourselves are pretty much unrelated. We can do either, neither or both.

    My point here was to remind folks that they have a decent degree of...

    Yes, but they're limited to the narrow scope of motor oils. No credible person proposes using gun, gear, or machine oil.

    Yes, as I acknowledged, no level of skill makes you immune to random events, here or in Europe.

    I don't have an issue with difference in societal accident rates between Europe and the USA, and we...

    I don't blame Critical Mass for the fact that yahoos use it as cover and an opportunity to be jerks "in a good cause".

    But let's be teal, this incident was 100% provoked by one rider who chose...

    One thing that nobody seems to mention is that accidents aren't evenly distributed among all riders. Limiting this to a class of riders who spend a decent amount of time on the roads, we find large...

    My objection to Critical Mass isn't that they act like a bunch of yahoos. Why should they be any different from the rest of the population? Nor is it that people will associate their behavior with...

    If you're an experienced ex-competitive (though maybe a bit rusty) rider, the weight won't mean anything to you in terms of handling. Yes, it's different, but you'll adapt faster than you can...

    Let's leave bikes for a moment and look at cars. You use various oils for specific jobs in a car. The engine gets motor oil, the rear end gets a gear oil, and the transmission gets transmission...

    I don't know about the other issues, and couldn't without seeing. But what you describe with front cage rub is 100% normal (within limits). The cage has a certain width, and in any one position...

    Think about all the steel structures around you that are still standing after decades and even well over a century.

    Steel is stern stuff, and quality bikes are actually overbuilt by quite a bit,...
