    I've used propane (a bit lower in temp than MAPP) to braze up a few racks for myself using 45% silver. Getting the silver to melt isn't the problem, what is the problem is how long it takes to get...

    The Leading Pedestrian Interval (LPI) helps put people crossing the road in a better position to be seen by drivers, much like taking the lane by cyclists. LPI's are combined with concurrent...

    I've been in a similar boat for a few years. I suggest heading to a coffee shop several miles away everyday before you clock in.
    It occasionally works for me. Need to get back into doing it,...

    Also check your trainer for wear. While the tires wear far faster, the trainer roller/drum will wear as well with extended use.

    A front basket is very nice to have, you always have a place to put purchases that you didn't expect. On the other hand, I find that they also collect half empty paper coffee cups.

    Is your seatpost raised above the minimum insertion mark? If it is, lower it. - Sorry, I thought pics were of the OP's bike.

    Other than that, it might just be the change in weight distribution...

    MG B's (at least the '67 model) used SU carbs with a float valve. If the valve stuck open gas would drain out past the engine block; exciting times!

    Coroplast works very well for stiffeners. Free for a few days after an election. You can even make whole panniers out of them.

    Unless you have two spare wheels with the correct freewheel and a spare saddle (you would still have to buy a seatpost), that looks like a donor for your local bike kitchen. They can either use...

    A large potted parlor palm on a winter's evening. I even got a shout out as I neared my neighborhood from a guy who had obviously seen me downtown with the plant.

    Add flat resistant tires such as the various Schwalbe Marathon plus tires so that you don't have to worry about flats so much.
    Switching bars will also mean switching shifters.

    The pedal light you linked to has a 1/2" pedal thread. I don't know any bike crank that takes that size.
    And yes, please keep on topic.

    Umm, wouldn't the weight of the sealant increase the weight of the tube? Why not go with butyl and not have to add sealant; save the latex for race days.

    Good and cheap are oxymorons when it comes to bike locks, as are good and lightweight.
    You should look into the used market (Craigslist or ebay or other such place) for a good used lock sold...

    So, just how much is your $1500 road bike worth to you? That's the question you have to ask yourself.
    Do you leave it on the street during the day? you might want a decent lock.

    Geez, hohum hasn't posted for a few days. I might just wonder if he has lost his arrogance; but I really don't give a hoot.

    BTW, I would expect your LBS to charge you extra just from the amount of filth that is built up.

    Of course, if you clean your bike, you might find something else that is broken.

    Umm, did the cops even bother to ask any bystanders what happened in a simple arrest by an upstanding member of the union.

    I think not.
