    Just gave that a try--nothing changed. I wish that what it was though. That would be a genius feature!

    I just bought an 80's Miami Vice themed Rockhopper. I was thinking it was going to be all friction shift, but the rear is indexed.
    The thumb shifter for the rear has a 'lever' that will move a...

    Depends on how long you want to ride and what lifestyle you are looking for. I live NE of White Rock Lake and ride into downtown on occasion. It's about 9.5 miles in and I never have to get on a busy...

    Since I was once in your situation, (actually EVERY ONE of us was in your situation at some point) I can tell you, the fear that you have of riding in a group is more in your mind than reality. It is...

    Yeah, good luck trying to bring about some common courtesy. It's not just Sunnyvale. I usually just pass off bad behavior as they are concentrating soooooooo hard on their riding and are taxing their...

    After I posted I saw that you are in Plano. The previous post and it's information are probably not very helpful since you are already here.

    The "bike routes" in the Dallas area are hit and miss. (Kind of like riding with the cars in the Dallas area) Just because a street has a bike route designation doesn't mean I would want to ride on...

    I don't know that it's realistic to buy him a bike that will serve him well from age 10 to 16. In buying a bike, how it fits is the ultimate factor. (However, I have seen some pretty big kids riding...
