    On further review, the ruling on the field stands. That's a strange set of cogs. Either (preferably) the 19 ought to be 18 or the 15 ought to be 16. At least that way it would start with more...

    When you start working with the cable you'll discover one thing. New cables and new housing (which you should replace) are danged hard! You can't cut them easily or cleanly with the "wire-cutter"...

    I got home from my commute a while ago. It was brutal. Headwinds over 20mph, gusting up near 30. I had to use my low gear in spots just to keep moving forward. If I hadn't been running with the...

    I did my first non-commute, non-tandem ride yesterday, about 55 miles. On the return I could have sworn the chainrings got larger. Or the cogs smaller.

    It took a bit more time this morning for...

    Could I throw out my helmet mirror for a Google Glass? Sure! I could throw it out now if I wanted. Except that I don't want and I'd feel naked and be scared without it, Google Glass or not.
