    I'm trying to mix/match a road lever with a Shimano rollerbrake and ran across this on a different forum. Doesn't seem like it would be subject to more dirt/corrosion than a travel agent, which...

    Where to find "brake power booster"

    Does anyone know where I can find one of these "brake power boosters"? Seems like they have been discontinued. They are similar to the in-line travel agent, except they don't have to be mounted to...

    There's no need to buy "cycling specific" clothing. I used to commute from Prospect Heights to the Upper West Side in regular clothes, albeit in layers I can peel off along the way. Even in the dead...

  5. Gates "Surefit" sprockets for belt drive bikes

    Do you happen to have a pic of it? The Park FR-5 I have is a standard Shimano cassette lock ring tool, but it does not fit the RT-AD05 lock ring.

    Anyone happen to know what the proper tool is to tighten the lock ring (see red arrow in pics below) on the RT-AD05 6-bolt to centerlock disc rotor adapter? I've read on various product descriptions...

    I'd be pretty wealthy if I had a penny for every time a car/truck "buzzed" by me really close, only to slam on their brakes at a red light and see me ride up next to them a few seconds later.

    I disagree that cyclists have a "disproportionate effect" on traffic. Whenever I drive, I do not feel the least bit inconvenienced when I have to go around a cyclist or am forced to slow down for a...

    U-Lock Tote anyone?

    Does anyone have experience with this product? I've been looking for a way to properly secure my u-lock onto my rack and this seems like a nice clean solution (unlike some of the DIY attempts I've...

    Thanks for the tip. I checked to see if there was any rattling between the levers, but the sound seems to be coming from inside the unit. The Versa shifter, BTW, is the only brifter available for...

    I recently installed the Versa VRS-8 shifters on my commuter. Overall, I'm very pleased with its performance (even the long throw of the up-shift doesn't bother me), but my biggest peeve is this...

    I agree that removing and replacing the wheel itself does not in and of itself pose any significant difficulties and is actually quite easy to do after the first couple of times. However, the...

    I have a pre-centertrack belt bike (Trek Soho) and dread having to fix a rear flat because it's such a PIA to get the tension just right. It seems like the tension "sweet spot" exists within a very...

    Can you please elaborate on the hub stripping issue? My 2011 DLX has been really noisy as of late and I'm having a heck of a time pinpointing the culprit. First I thought it was...

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to chime in (I'm the OP). Unfortunately, your collective replies seems to confirm my original suspicion: that it's a personal preference and I won't really know...

    I'm toying with the idea of converting my Nexus IGH hybrid to drop bars - primarily for more hand positions. I like the J-tek bar-end shifter because it works with the Nexus hub and is relatively...

    Dear OP: how fast do you think you were going at the time of impact? I am curious how fast you need to be going for a bike to be crumpled up like that. Hope you feel better soon!

    I recently picked up a DLX too. The front disc brake can be a bit finnicky to adjust, but works just fine.

    Did any other owners of this bike notice that the front tire is not exactly centered in...
