    FYI - the Box of Crap seems to be at my PO Box now, but I won't get a chance to open it until early next week.

    I've been following FB pretty closely, and his wife Angie did go home until the 24th. Her original message said that she would be back with him by Sept 24th when he is scheduled to have an...

    If I am buzzed by a drone, a person in a vehicle, or anything else that causes me to fear, then it is assault, and will be treated as such, if I cannot easily flee from the assault, then it is...

    I would ask the dealer just to ensure it wasn't a safety issue... If not, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Oh, and also, look aback in the listings, or keep an eye on items being posted repeatedly... some people will keep advertising a bike for months at a high price, and even though they seem to be...

    What area do you live in? If your area is high cost, it can well be worth the time and effort to check a CL site that is an hour or so away, it can impact prices significantly (depending on where...

    What makes you think that a vintage step through wouldn't be strong enough for your weight? Many of them would definitely hold up better than anything Target has ever sold.

    It doesn't help things roll better, it helps make tubes easier to install. It basically serves as a dry lubricant.

    What you should look for is dependent on your needs. To go against the trend, I would say that the bike you ask about will be heavier than the others that have been mentioned. However, if you don't...

    My guess is that state law probably says you have to change the address on your license to your place of residence in a short period of time (90 days or less). Since you paid the $190, there is...

    With the cost of frame saver, I guess it is worth it. Even if a specific frame may never need it, losing a favorite is enough of a pain to consider treating the frames in my stable

    Smoother tires will help you gain a little speed, and cycling shorts can be helpful if you are getting any pain.

    If you can lower the handlebar comfortably, you can also potentially gain some...

    Yeah, I didn't mean to minimize the pain of replacing the parts, although I see how it was read based on what I wrote. I was really wondering why someone steals items that are not very expensive. ...

    Suspension corrected is the way to go, or it may potentially modify the handling in a negative fashion. There are plenty of reasonably priced suspension corrected forks available. I have a Tange...

    I have never ridden a carbon fork, but by observation of messages, many people feel a difference. As noted above, some of that could be related to other aspects of the fork than something inherent...

    How far a person rides is not a question where anyone will get an answer in a forum like this... other than one case I will get to.

    What is reasonable depends on what your goals are. For some,...

    I stay mostly in one chain ring (in my case the middle) for most of my riding for one reason. The rear shifts better than the front, so I do all of my shifting back there.

    As far as wearing out...

    Within a price range, everything will be pretty similar.

    I would personally test ride the Trek to see how it feels to you. If it feels good, and looks to be in good shape, save your money. ...

    For 9 speed, the rear derailleur pull for road and mountain groups is identical, so there should be no problem with number 4. In fact, I think it is pretty standard for tourers to run road front and...

    Just to chime in with the others... ignore the brand that initially came on the bike for saddle, bars, grips, seatposts, wheels, brakes... frankly almost anything that isn't proprietary.

    I ride mostly rail trails and levees... no real climbs on most of my routes. :) My favorite ride is a pretty constant, but mild grade, the Black Diamond trail from White Haven to Mountain Top.
