    The Greenville plant closed in 1991 after several years of not turning out many bikes. They made Paramount frames, but the other frames were made in Asia and just assembled in Greenville. Any Schwinn...

    You're missing the point. These statistics do not address the likelihood of having an accident in the first place, only the extent of injuries when it does happen. There is no legislation possible...

    I would've considered that a threat. The Assistant Principal would be looking for a new job, and I would be suing the entire school system.

    The statistics are meaningless. Think about it. Of course someone encased in a steel box, with padding, airbags, seat belts, and child seats is going to fare much better than someone riding on a...

    Schwinn began having their bicycles made in Asia back during the Bike Boom of the late 70s, early 80s, because they were unable to compete with them . First Giant, then Panasonic made the bikes for...

    I use a 6000 lumen Cree rechargeable LED headlamp. On the bike, I run it on low with a semi-wide beam, probably around 500-700 lumens, most of the time when riding. The nice thing is that I also use...

    Give it some more time....No more oil is being made, so the sources were finite to start with. Just simple math. When you use something faster than it is being made, it will run out, sooner, or...

    I hate them. I tried using them for a year, then went back to Power Grips.

    I guess they are OK if you are just going to sit in the saddle and pedal for extended times, without having to dismount,...

    I have a bad hip, so I really love Mixte frames. A Mixte frame is not a 'girls' bike. Girls frames have just one downtube going to the bottom bracket and are very weak. They were originally made for...

    I am guessing your question involves over-all health, rather than simply losing weight. To build your wind up (improve your cardiovascular performance), intense exertion over short periods of time,...

    The results of most studies seem to indicate to me that Pepper Spray is not really a good defensive tool. It does not incapacitate, or paralyze. It has no stopping power whatsoever. Attackers can,...

    You really think someone would die just because they stitched a rip in their helmet cover with braided thread? Do you also worry about whether or not a hangnail is going to be fatal?????? Both are...

    Are you alright? Maybe you should take a deep breath or something. The question was not about making a helmet cover, but simply repairing a rip in one. The very fact that braided does not stretch...

    Interesting points. I think you are on to something there. A motor vehicle can be cited for a multitude of violations that do not effect bicyclists. One traffic stop could result in 5 or more...

    It's still open, isn't it? What have you got against others continuing a discussion? If it bugs you, then just ignore it.
