    Great rims aren't they. I have a 60 front and a 90 rear on the TT bike. No handling issues even with the 25 mph cross winds of last weekend. Easily tough enough for long distance racing.

    You can...

    True if you take it too often. My ortho says once every six months- max. Frequent users can have big problems.

    Talk to your ortho. Semi-annual shots of cortisone and daily meloxicam work for me with moderate osteoarthritis in both knees. There also may be some specific PT the doc can prescribe.

    We didn't notice any issues with leaving the crank in place. Try that first and if it's a problem then you can look into removing it.

    lol. Yeah, don't mess with the 'liners. He was probably just cruising along . At the big streamliner race in Nevada, you have to go over 50 just to qualify.

    Because they address those kinds of issues. ;) If you don't like them that's fine, but that opinion is yours. But I don't ever recall Steamer posting: " A road bike? Yuck".

    If they keep riding as adults, you can pat your self on the back and give yourself a hearty "Well Done!" That's what parenting is about. There'll be other days, and other rides. :D

    Gee, ILTB, didn't they teach you to "look both ways" ? And yes, that usually entails coasting for a sec. to look for cross traffic.

    Well, filtering between lanes of traffic is one thing, and "filtering' up against the kerb is another. Not a fan of the first, but I can see why people do it; the second seems really dumb.
