I'm confident you will eventually go much longer than I can.
120.25 miles on Saturday. Did not bring the camera.
And you didn't eat some on the way home? :)
Studded tires are much better ice.
Much better on very hard packed snow.
The same as any knobby in snow without ice.
Worse on bare pavement. But OK if you take it easy.
I took me a long time to remember to ease up on the pedal when shifting at the end of a long ride when I am very tired. I even shifted going up hill, but not intentionally.
Some front derailleurs...
It still is not clear to me, do you always soft pedal when you shift? Sounds like you do not. You need to do it all the time, do not shift when accelerating hard or going up a hill with power still...
My friends Rottweiler is named Max, he's more than good enough. Especially if you go near the shed that has my friends bike in it.
The recess can be filled with RTV (silicone Seal). It makes stealing the part a little more inconvenient than maybe the next bike. And, with patience can be cleaned out. Not good for on the road...
It sounds like the cyclist waved the SUV to pass and then went to the middle of the lane. Sounds stupid. I can see why the driver would take it as a deliberate attempt by the cyclist to be a pain in...
Real men use granite saddles.
And Benson. :love:
My last dog was a big doberman. His Name was Benson too. Extremely gentle.
I think Bailey chasing the RC truck was more exciting.
I would bet you have a good bike headlight. He probably thought you should turn it down, or were trying to blind him deliberately. Even led bike lights that don't put down a lot of light on the...
Less rubber = less weight = Faster tires. Time to get out the file and grind them all down to the cords.
Foam pipe insulation on contact points. Held in place by a strap of Velcro. Without Velcro tight in place the foam will some off too sometimes. Always strap the bikes in place so they can't move,...
Control costs overall, not happening. When I have too much stuff I give it away to people who need it. Fixing up an old bike and making a true profit from it is not happening. Even if you make a...
The six million dollar man could run as fast as a car. No need for a bike. He would break it anyway.
Shimano 10 speed road deraillers do not work with 10 speed MTB derailleurs. The cable pull ratio is different.
One needs a 9 speed MTB derailleur to work on a 10 speed road bike.
I guess it works well.
Now the newspaper equivalent must be web sites with lots of ads. When I post an odd or interesting thing in the forums, I get ads for it soon after. Just as a joke I...
Interesting. Make your own news by having an event. I would guess that at the time, bicycles were something very popular to most people. And, at a time when many different types of bikes were being...
