    Well, at least I don't ignore it when the other person posts facts. I like how you once again avoid backing up anything and everything.
    Not even acknowledging that what you had was an elongated...

    I am aware that he has co-opted the name, but that one is more like an elongated short john, in that the load, just like the short-john is above the front wheel. The long john is a bike where the...

    The first one isn't a real long-john.
    And unless you don't count the person riding the bikes in the next two pictures, they are not front heavy. I would have to carry more than my own weight on the...

    You seem to be more than willing to ignore what I say in order to make your point.

    Anything with the weight in between the load points will have its weight shared between those points. I already...

    It is not a "schtick". It is physics and therefore reality.

    Instead of having things above and around the rear wheel, the lower center of gravity and the fact that the weight is placed in-between...

    Formula 1 cars do.



    Anyway, I'm for automatic transmissions in cars. I really don't care enough to be shifting myself, and since cars are already so computer controlled, there is really no...

    Okay, you have shown yourself to be arguing for argument's sake. When I say "tempt" I am not talking morals and other biblical idiocy, I am talking about showing them how nice it can be to use a...

    I removed all names, colour bands and whatnot of my frame last week. Hell of job, having to sand those areas down and then lacquer on top. If they want advertising, they should pay me.

    Funny you should mention religion, as the ones with the holier-than-thou attitude is on the advocacy side.

    Fair enough. I rarely see temps of -22f, and I sure as hell aren't going riding in it. As for overheating, I have heard of that potential problem, but compared to a broken brake cable due to a nick...

    "Duffel" is usually American English, and "duffle" British English.

    Looks fine to me, but 35L is not very much.

    Thanks :) I just thought I'd share it, so you knew that it might improve down the road as it has for me, even if there were some critical periods where I very much doubted it.

    If you remember...

    That's ok. Having to try things out, only to throw them away because we react to them is an annoying, ongoing expenditure. And it's just for a tyre, or rather, for something for a tyre, so try the...

    I'd say you try the cheap knock-off and if you react to it, then I'd try the original/"authentic". :)

    Me too. I suffer from MCS (although it has gotten better in the last few years), and the Pattex is the only glue I can use indoor for gluing my kid's toys or things like that.

    Edit: I have never...
