    Google "overshoes" or "galoshes" for your shoes. I have two kinds, a small pair for light splashes or days when it's not that wet and a heavy pair that look like boots for days it's pouring or tons...

    I like those, I like them a lot.

    They aren't the same light, if you read further, the BT10 and BT20 are both compatible with both kinds of batteries (you just need the correct holder.)

    Those...

    Cold temps = less performance. Nothing you can do about it.

    You're lucky in portland. It's been -5F to -20F here for the past week (most of the time hovering around -10 to -15F.) Talk about cold!...

    Best/brightest AA powered bike light?

    Hey guys, with all this craze for non removable, rechargeable Li-Ion bike lights, I feel that good old AA powered bike lights are going the ways of the Dodo.

    However, I happen to have an...

    Bought some for $50 bucks on e-bay, 30 bucks cheaper than REI or 14 bucks cheaper if you include the REI reward thingy. Not a bad deal!

    I also own a pedal wrench, but these are not for MY bikes, they're for my girlfriend's. And she is by no means going to want to change pedals out at 6:00 in the morning or after a hard ride on the...

    Best clipless/normal pedal combination?

    I'm looking for some pedals for my SO's birthday. She just bought a mountain bike that she also commutes with when it's snowy (road bikes don't like (lots of) snow) so I would like to get her some...
  10. Got an old Schwinn Impact MOS from the auction

  11. Brake Interrupter causing brakes to rub?

    Hey all,
    I have a quick question. I have a bike that has brake interrupters (2nd set of brake levers on the tops of the bars). When I pull the brake using the main brake levers, the pads will spring...

    Both of the bearing surfaces look fine, it's just that the grease had dried up honestly (and was "crunching" under the balls). After reading sheldon's site though, I just decided to replace the balls...

    I would think that caged balls would be easier to deal with, but I don't think it'd be hard at all with loose balls. Flip the bike over, insert balls with grease, put in fork assembly, flip bike over...
  14. Ball bearing "size" of balls for (headset/BB/wheels ect.)

    I'm helping my GF restore an old bike we bought at a bike auction a week ago and I've decided to replace all of the bearings. Well, at least the BB and the headset since both were grinding to no...

    That's what I used to do when I was a kid and I was trying to ride one or no handed. After a while I took them further and further off and now I can ride no handed easily.

    With that being said, if...

    I have the SKS raceblade longs... I have to say, I'm not 100% satisfied with them. Since they are not a "single" fender, the front, small part of the fenders (in front of the steering tube and in...

    I'd say the best "lock" is multiple "locks" and parking next to bikes that are nicer than yours.

    Also, get insurance for your bike. That's the best "lock" you can get.

    It turns out that most...

    I really like the "air bag" helmet that you wear around your neck. If I had to guess I'd say that will end up being more safe than normal helmets as it supports your neck as well as protects your...

    You say his helmet "did it's job" but it really didn't. The thing is that the face itself has a lot more sensitive and fragile things to break than the top of the head. You say his face and mouth...

    While both of those would work lovely, one of either of them cost more than this entire build. I think I'll just try it with the wheels on the outside and if it breaks put them on the inside. (Or...
