    I attended a talk by Georgena Terry who is not only a brilliant bike designer and entrepreneur but also is a mechanical engineer. She said she was mistaken about why women don't like to lean forward...

    See what kind of feedback you get. She may prefer the handlebars higher, and you could do that by flipping them. Casual riders don't always like handlebars that low, women even less so. But it sure...

    AlmostTrick, I feel the same, and I think it's because those feelings were created when we were so impressionable. This weekend, my wife and I were watching Mad Men, and I think 1969 might be my...

    I loved them, and I remember the video somewhat. I remember the song very well. I was eight years old and was enthralled with that TV show.

    "Dish" originally meant off-center but nowadays it generally refers to centering the rim over the axle's locknuts, whether or not that results in an asymmetrical wheel.

    I've been hearing that anything-but-cotton theme for years and never had a problem wearing cotton as my bottom layer until a few weeks ago. It was cold, and I was well dressed and warm while racing...

    In 1982, I didn't own a car, so I didn't have auto insurance. I was riding my bike to work and was hit head-on by a car. The impact was bad enough that I (still) don't remember the impact or the...

    I'm not happy with the death rate of pedestrians and cyclists hit by cars. That's another way of saying the risk is too high, not low as you call it.

    But I agree that bumpers for human bodies are...

    There are steel and aluminum bikes designed for the stated purpose. Just get one of them.

    If I weighed 270 lbs, I would buy a steel-frame bike. Come to think of it, all of my too-many bikes have...

    I've straightened hangers by eye. Sometimes that was good enough. I now own the tool. If doing it by eye doesn't work, buy the tool or bring the frame to a shop.

    I like them when they work, but often the nut on the back falls off, and sometimes the screw gets stuck. When it gets stuck, it's very hard to get out. My International is missing them, and I think I...

    Is this for you or someone else? My experience shows that the Honor derailleur is inordinately flexible in the knuckle that attaches to the hanger. Coupling this fact with the absence of a dork disk,...

    I think MAFAC went out of business not because there was anything wrong with their brakes but because nothing was wrong with them. The market wants to see changes, but changes were not necessary....

    My official tally for January: 130.8 miles, which doesn't include short trips such as when I use Citi Bike.

    Yeah, I strongly prefer food over formulas marketed at purported athletes!

    Is been well above freezing for most of the time since the snowfall nine days ago. Most of it is gone now, which still leaves a lot, but riding in the streets isn't challenging any more. I rode two...

    hooCycles, I find it helps during a prolonged effort such as a long ride. I suspect it's unhealthful at all other times or maybe all times. The question for me is not when it's good for me, it's how...

    A couple of years ago, at 5'9" and 178 lbs, I figured I should lose ten pounds. I cut back on sugar, not only for my weight but because it is really bad for one's long term health. Well, I lost 20...

    Pedal more gently so you don't sweat so much.

    You'll look like a goose no matter what you do, so don't bother trying to prevent that.

    Some ebikes I see on the street look just like pure pedal bikes. Imagine the shock of seeing someone pass you easily while you're pedaling hard. One bike delivery company here recently added motors...

    I've lost some weight and am back down to size medium. But since you're making that leap of faith, I'll leap with you. Heck, it's only $12.
