In the garage.
My commuter is Fred
My fast bike is Scoot ...
I used to have one do-it-all bike for my 21 mile, one-way commute. It was a Specialized Secteur Triple with Sora 8sp components.
I'd take the rack off for weekend rides, but that was becoming a...
Here is a good example of a PVC rack. Its the second one in the video.
Thinner tires aren't always faster. I read recently where you gain nothing speed wise when dropping from 28s to 23s.
I commuted 21 miles one-way through some pretty crappy roads. I was running...
This was my "6,000 mile selfie" from last year.
I work security for a big building in Dallas. Education is a BA in Criminal Justice.
We park our bikes in a very secure underground garage that is teeming with cameras, but we all still lock our...
I can't wait for this year's ride. Its a great weekend excursion.
Those look nice, and a good price.
I made all of my wool knickers from Thrift Store dress slacks.
Very good stuff.
Thanks for sharing.
Yep. You're right.
That's why its now sitting in my parts bin.
The OP wanted a big light. This is one.
I bought this one from Home Depot.
Its big, runs of 4xAA, runtimes last about a week before getting...
I bought this one at my LBS. It was okay for what it was. It doesn't get used much anymore. I must say, though, I was impressed with the output and runtimes from 2xAA.
This was my attempt at a holster for my P-01. I still have it somewhere.
I gotta say, nice work.
I don't know anything about leatherwork, other than my failed attempts at gun holsters.
Good luck finding the right leather. I'd love to see the finished product.
I decided that one steady, one flashing, does nothing to increase my visibility. I keep both on steady so I can see better.
21 miles one way
I take the commuter train home, so I get 10-15 miles in the afternoon.
That is what the ratchet mechanism does. It tightens the helmet to your head.
There will always be space between your head and the helmet.
Go to a store and try some on. Play with the...
Have you tried any of them on?
I always buy the universal fit helmets and just adjust the ratcheting mechanism.
To each their own, but with my experience, when my chain started complaining, the damage was already done. Rust and internal wear had already taken place. The chain never lasted another 1k miles...
I usually get ~3500 miles (5600km) from my 8sp chain (KMC brand)
I usually don't see mud or sand, but it gets rained on and picks up lots of road grime.
I wipe down and lube, no washing or...
What is so dangerous and stupid about them?
I tried several different styles of cleats/pedals before picking one. I found that I could buy a set of used pedals and cleats for about $20. If I didn't like them, I could sell them for $20 and buy...
There is also River Legacy in Arlington. Its 7 miles of concrete trails, plus some that go out of the park. Lots of roadies use the East end for training. You can get some great speed with minimal...
Think twice about keeping a 16+ mph average on the trails you mentioned. There are usually too many other trail users to safely and politely keep that speed up. The Katy and WRL trails are packed...
