    Yep.
    Based on nothing other than a trailer is (more than) twice as wide as a half-a-bike thingie.

    I noticed lately that there are bike lanes and right of ways and "entire lane" signs popping up all over the city. Last night I noticed that the city has re-designated one of two lanes of travel on a...

    I think that his is by far the coolest thing about these two apps! For ships and giggles, enter a day's worth of what you would "regularly" eat into the old Fitness Pal. I was flabbergasted!
  10. I think that I finally have it! A bike I really don't care about!

    I have read time and time again about that bike.The one that people don't really mind if it gets stolen. I thought that I had one like that. I got my Trek 820 for sixty bucks. In my size. With a...

    +1.
    I was acualy pissed.

    Some one else made a good point though that is was Cancellara who really spoiled it, Markov just happened to be behind him when he got spat out the front.

    Probably not if DorkDisk is right. Most hard-tail MTBs have 80-100mm of travel. If your bike really IS supposed to have 140mm that's a pretty big difference. There might be a longer rigid fork out...
  15. Sill messing with this darn Raleigh Marathon!

    I don't think God ever wants me to actually ride this thing! It's been one thing after the other over the last couple of years and as I have always had other bikes, this one is kind of back-burner....

    That thing doesn't look like it sits right to me. Too "chopperish". It's not a brand that I am familiar with though. Is there any chance that it was supposed to be a "down hill" bike? The forks look...

    So, I had the opportunity to drive across the small city in which she lives recently. No way I would want to live there and NOT use a bike for getting around. Perfect place to peddle.

    Yea. The Gary Fisher forKs are offset by something like 52 degrees. I have a Reba that I want to put on instead of the RST Capo that came on it. Oddly, the diner bike is a Trek but NOT a Fisher.

    Gravel Grinding, mini-van-bike style!
