    I rode my bike with hydraulic BB7, I mean, Juicys (thanks fietsbob) this winter with no real problems. The only and minor issue, was that the pads were "slow" to return and by that, I mean, that when...

    Yesterday was a good test of rain gear at near freezing temps.

    - Helmet cover, good!
    - MEC lobster over-mitts (worn over long-fingered cycling gloves), good!
    - Polaris RBS waterprooof jacket,...

    I don't always like the frame shapes of bikes of this era but this one is beautiful (the spit and polish doesn't hurt either). Very nicely done!!!

    I saw reference to that on Facebook this morning, totally laughable. I'll give him a tire of mine to change the tube that will need more than one tire iron (I use 3) and you won't be able to put the...

    Lots of rain yesterday (25mm/1in) and then freezing temps today (-10C/16F); I didn't know what the road conditions would be like and I had put away my winter clothes so I took the transit in today.

    I like to wear jerseys but, with the exception of one accidental purchase, they are all relatively loose fitting: I'm not a model, nor a pro cyclist, I don't need to show off. I have no team jerseys...

    Just out of curiosity, I had a look at eBay. I normally wear a Medium and the only shirt I had with me (that I wasn't wearing and didn't need to strip to measure) was a loose fitting button shirt...

    If you don't care about being used, there are some great deals on eBay: I missed out on one a year or so ago, 7 jerseys for $100.

    The other thing to be careful with is sizing: there is Medium for...

    Cool and wet, 2C/36F with a forecast of 25mm/1in rain. I dressed properly for the rain and rode my Kona Sutra in for the first time this year (loved the ride!!!) so I felt fine but I do have tights...

    Thanks, I'll stick with Shimano then and try to find other suppliers; in my limited experience, amazon.ca isn't as good for Canadians as amazon.com is for US citizens.

    My 2002 Norco Bigfoot needs a bit of work to bring it back into use, most of which is simple but the biggest issue is that the rear derailleur shifter is no longer working. It is (was) a Shimano...
