    I'm sorry. I don't have a lot of time now so I have had to skip a lot of fine posts, I'm sure but I have to throw this in before I leave. I have every common size of wheel except 16". My 700C x 28mm...

    I'm seeing that bag on Amazon for $77 and Free Shipping. What is "a lot" when you are talking about getting a high end DSLR and peripherals safely from place to place? Personally I would want a...

    How humbling. You mean the 'Depends'(tm) people don't have a line of adult babywipes to help 30 something cyclists feel better about on site hygiene?? Marketing abhors a vacuum. I'm on it.

    Your best option is this. If for whatever reason that mirror can't work for you... I for one would try harder to get used to the helmet mirror. This is the one I use, and it too takes getting used...

    I don't disagree. I have all of those things and use them. But I'm going riding anyway if I find that my light doesn't work or my favorite day-glo jersey has a huge chain stain. My Planet Bike rear...

    ^THIS is where the issue lives for me. In my city if a motorist has an equipment failure:headlight, tail-light, they get a $65 summons which can usually be waived by bringing proof of compliance to...

    I'm having trouble believing that a frame builder brazed on a disc mount to an 80's MTB frame and repainted it only to use a disc fork of another color... and the rear brake. What brand? What year?...
