    I rode out with shiny new shifters a week ago. Indexed mode was working like crap so I moved over to friction and don't think I'm ever going back. This stuff is so full of awesome! Thanks for the...

    Thanks for all the advice folks. The general consensus I get is that they'll work, but they may or may not work as good as with an 8 speed cassette. I read the Sheldon Brown link on the difference...
  3. Using 8-speed bar-end shifters on 7-speed cassette

    I have recently converted the riser bar on my commute bike to a drop bar. At present I have had to settle for some cheap locally made thumb shifters, while I wait to get my hands on some good bar-end...

    I've been lurking on this forum since almost a year now. And it's been a good year for cycling. One imperial century, 2 imperial almost-centuries, over 2500 kms of riding and a new bike gifted by my...

    I'm a Nikon fanboy and have recently purchased a D40. This baby packs in a great punch in a small, affordable package. It's great for casual users, while still leaving scope for the semi-pro's to...

    This debate has been on for quite a number of pages now, and everything that has to be said about the legal aspect of this matter has been debated. Coming from a rather lawless part of the world (as...

    I carry my Acer laptop to work everyday on a backpack. I tried a messenger bag for a while, but it kept shifting and was a general PIA. And I hardly can feel the 3.5 kgs plus papers, books and, at...

    A day towards which we seem to be hurtling at breakneck speed. :)

    Seriously though, I feel that motorized vehicles do have their place. It's only their mindless usage that turns me off, like the...

    I have never driven a car in my entire life. I don't even know how to drive a car, nor do I have a license. Before getting my bicycle, I would often wait at bus stops and watch the world whiz by with...

    Thank you.

    I don't currently have a bell, but will get it done right away, considering that at least someone has had success with them.

    I don't think I was very clear in my previous post. She was NOT at a crosswalk. She was as far as could be from a crosswalk. But then, it is not a legal requirement here for pedestrians to stay off...

    It's difficult not to like an article like this when you identify so much with it. And almost everybody here at BF can easily do that.
