    No, I don't. There are several here, like GovernorSilver, who do, though. I prefer roadways to trails. I'd rather share the road with cars than ride with multi-use path occupants, who aren't...

    I will have four fewer pieces on the ride home today...

    I wouldn't pay a premium for any component brand.

    But I still think that Shimano contributed to the death of SunTour. I've never quite forgiven them for that...

    I've hit 50 mph on a descent with traffic only inches away (could've leaned out and touched the fender of the car passing/pacing me). But the bike was stable and I didn't really have any fear at...

    I waited until today to resume riding. The issue was narrow roadways and subfreeze icing of the melt-off. Not worth the risk of falling. Things were fine today. We only got 22" or so. Not like...

    Oh, and how are your cholesterol and triglyceride numbers?

    I don't eat sugary things, so cannot offer any enabling sympathy, Tom. Once you've gone sweet-free for a month, you've begun to ingrain a healthy habit. Keep it up year round. Substitute a slice...

    Same here. I'm not sure of temperature, but it was balmy, hot. I really appreciated the wind blowing across the remaining snow fields. The cool air felt good on the ride in. Many/most of the...

    If your WalMart bike has a suspension, there's where the bulk of the excess weight can be found. An aluminum hybrid like a Trek 7.2X might do the trick. Tires in 28mm would be about right for a...

    Time is the limiting factor. I've always found ways for my hobbies to become self funding in a matter of a few years.

    Loved skating and hockey - became a USA Hockey referee to pay for equipment...

    Cheap Chinese pedals can be swapped at purchase. Done.

    EDIT: to clarify, it appears that the recall concerned pedal bodies coming loose from their spindles. It's likely that whatever fastener...

    Riding in the rain is no problem. Riding through rivers and submerging your bearings and suspension fork...well, that's another thing altogether. Don't ask me how I now this...

    At 45 degrees, my top has a wicking tech compression layer against the skin,, a light long skeeve jersey (polyester or wool) and a wind blocking convertible vest. I might add sleeves to the vest if...

    I hated driving to and from work for 2+ hours daily. My wife and I moved to allow me to bike commute. It's been great, although bike riding has taken on a more utilitarian flavor.

    My wife and I saw it in a theatre of all places. She guffawed during the film and laughed at me for choosing it all the drive home. :/

    My commuter, which I ride most often, has a 46-34 double. My area is hilly. I ride both equally. The Semi-Pro has half step gearing, which presupposes an equal share. The tourer has a triple,...
