    You don't want to turn the limit screws to adjust the derailleurs. These limit the total distance that your derailleur can move. They are for preventing the derailleur to move too far and pull the...

    What amazes me is how folks who ride road bike have never heard of bar ends for flat bars. So a road bike has so many more hand positions than a flat bar. Well, you have the tops, the hoods, and...

    I certainly didn't pay up front for my Escape 1. I bought it in March last year, well before the shop owner said he would begin to get any new bikes in.

    I picked Giant because it is the nearest shop to buy from. It's 10 minutes from work while all other brands would be at the outskirts of a 40 mile radius from my house.

    For me it's not the fact that I want to ride fast or need to ride faster later. The problem I find with the one time I rode with my wife (granted it was her first time on a bike since she was a kid)...

    This is what I think of when you say "Park and Ride". Here, they are near interstate exchanges. You park and either grab the bus or car pool with someone else and ride the 30-50 miles to Pittsburgh.

    Sorry I don't live car free so I was loading my bike on the back of my car after a ride when I first started. Had an elderly gentleman stop in his car and ask me, "How much does one of those things...

    It allows road bike snobs to feel superior to look down at someone riding and enjoying a hybrid.

    A coworker goes on 3 or 4 week long trips through the summer 300-400 miles. He rides 50-60 miles a...

    I think a hybrid makes you gain weight. I lost from 247 down to 212 riding 500+ miles on a Walmart mountain bike. Bought my hybrid and rode 1000 miles. In that 1000 miles I gained back to 230. ...
