    Glad to help. If you (or anyone) is looking for an extension mount for the lights and you have a 4 bolt faceplate, I'd suggest this mount. It's the best light mount for a handlebar I've ever found.

    Depends on the crank being replaced and what it is being replaced with. Although the Specialized crank has a funky bolt behind the arm that is difficult to deal with, it's not a bad crank overall....

    I doubt that your chainrings are wearing unevenly. It's likely you are seeing a few flattened teeth on the outer ring and thinking that they are broken somehow. This is a common error. If you do...

    Better maybe. Cheaper? Nope. $145 for the light without a power source isn't cheap.

    That's odd, especially considering that the Camelbak was invented by a road rider for a road ride. Mountain bike riders embraced the Camelbak because they could ride and drink easily over varied...

    Luck had nothing to do with it. The only tire failure that involved "luck" was the shredded tire following an impact but only the impact involved any kind of random event (aka "luck"). The blowouts...

    That makes a bit more sense. Serfas also makes a white front facing light in the same configuration which is what I linked to.

    And you didn't paste the link.

    It depends on the shape of the loop. Most of the loops in my area are figure 8 (three lines in the pavement) or square (two lines in the pavement). On figure 8, roll the wheel directly over the...
