    You need to keep your front tire at the max PSI to reduce rolling resistance. The rear tire, to maintain comfort, should be 20% of the front inflation. ex: 100 front, 20 rear on a standard high-end...

    Thanks for these fine answers. I'm tossing them all into my think-about-it pile.

    It seems I could be much worse off. Perhaps I am expecting too much too soon. I am riding, and I am playing tennis....

    Separated shoulder. Operation or no?

    I came out of a collision with a truck with a separated shoulder (not a bad result all considered..) and did what everyone does. I googled like mad.

    It seems they often do not operate. You just...

    I'm more shocked by the public posting of a Mary MacGregor video than I am by the suggestion of a Ménage à trois. But that's just me.

    I wonder if I'll be up for either one... I hope so. I know I...

    I'd look at Adventure Cycling's info. They sell maps and also run a tour that sounds like the route you are interested it. Poke about on their site and see if it helps.

    Good luck, it sounds great!

    This thing must cost a fortune to put on. Most exhibitors I imagine don't have Shimano or Trek money. I imagine it's a burden, and perhaps a gamble for them to come at all. If small builders had...

    I've read that the proper amount to tell non-cyclists your bike cost is $750. It sounds like a lot, but isn't crazy high to the point you have to explain even more to them.

    I think the point is that that roads, paid for and used by all, are entirely auto centric to the point of being unsafe and hard to use for anyone else.

  18. Mundane question of the week: Helmet strap management

    I've only been riding forever, yet this one thing continues to make me crazy. Helmet straps.

    Yes, of course you are correct. But still, I'd take a $200 beater over no bike at all every time. Not that I'd love it, but it would be a bike.
