    If you have pits in the races, you typically want to replace the hubs (or get new wheels). That being said, the balls are cheap/easy to replace (any decent LBS will stock them), and you could just...

    Wow, that's a pretty cool route you've laid out. Thanks. Sure looks like it has some serious ups/downs though and doing the route in four days would be tough for me, especially with the climbing. ...

    Correct. It's also called the Ohio to Erie Trail. It links up a bunch of smaller trails. I got the maps from this website and they appear quite good. Unless someone has a strong alternative, I'm...
  5. Route suggestions: Louisville to Cincinnati

    Hi, mid-Sept, I'm planning a brief, solo 4-day credit-card tour from near Louisville (actually New Albany) to Columbus Ohio via Cincinnati. The route form Cincinnati to Columbus appears well-defined...

    I'm not buying the "wider tires are faster" line either. I ride a bunch of different bikes and have tried a bunch of different tires, and my speedo, stopwatch, and seat of the pants impression is...

    You're missing more expense, bulk, weight, and complexity for a benefit most riders don't care about.

    You're confusing a simple loss of traction due to a slipperly surface with hydroplaning. The key thing about hydroplaning is that you have to be going at a speed where the water between the tire and...

    Most folks can ride 1:1 gears at around 2-3 mph without issue. I'm 62-yo and no poster-child for bike handling and have no difficulty "staying upright" pedaling a 34/36 on 15% grades or so. They...

    I've motorcycled around Lake Tahoe a few times and the traffic is unreal. I actively avoid this route. I echo the comments that is is very scenic, but the road itself is badly overloaded and...
