    I haven't ridden my "real" road bike (carbon fiber Lemond) in two or three years. I ride my '94 Ritchey P-21 with 1.5" slicks on the road.

    I bought one for $50. Saw it in a guy's garage, made the offer, done. Spent about a hundred more to replace cables, tires, etc., and gave it to a friend because it was too small for me.

    It's pretty far down the list of things I would think about. I have 3 FS bikes, and none of the wheels are interchangeable. I have enough bikes that I get on the one with the tires I want to ride...

    I can't. My 1978 Breezer is in a museum. But here's a photo.

    A history of ONE post and you made it for me? I'm flattered.

    I dunno, but maybe a book shop might carry it. Amazon? If it turns out to be a problem, I'm sure I'll hear about it.

    I just signed a contract with Velo Press for a book on my bicycle activities between 1970 and 1990. Working title is "Fat Tire Flyer." My agent got me an awesome deal, and the publisher says they...

    That's like asking whether you should wear boxers or briefs. No one else has to wear your underwear or ride your bike. No one else shares your precise ability or rides exactly where you do.

    Crazy mountain bikers get a monument

    Mountain bike racing started in Fairfax, California with the Repack downhill races between 1976 and 1984. At first the town was a little undecided about its place in bicycle history, but then over...

    The volume knob on my guitar amplifier goes to eleven. None of the others I looked at went past ten, so I bought it.

    I presume you ride a bike that is somewhat more advanced than the fifty pounds of plumbing I rode down these steps in 1977.

    When you said "expensive," I thought you meant "expensive." My dropper posts both cost around $300.

    THAT's expensive.

    I get dinged more often at work than on the bike, but they are generally bruises or strains, not gaping wounds that leak evidence.. I'm a piano mover, and I have limped through a few days but I...

    I started riding off-road in the early '70s on a coaster brake klunker with no front brake. My handle "Repack Rider" is from the hill that destroyed coaster brakes and inspired some of us to build...

    I have one of each and both have needed repair. I prefer the Joplin. The remote release cable on the GD busted off and is now securely held by zip ties. Since the trigger is attached to the bars,...

    I ride a mountain bike because after 40+ years of cycling, I no longer care to ride a road bike. So I ride one of several MTBs everywhere I go, including local errands and gnarly singletrack. ...

    If you are building a klunker, B-17 is the only saddle to consider. If not, you have better choices for high-performance use.

    Here is a video with a lot of those old saddles.

    1979 Downhill Race Video

    This is the first video ever shot of the new sport of "klunking," before anyone started calling it "mountain biking." It ran nationally on CBS in 1979. The fellow in the picture is a hippie named...

    I like hearing what is around me. I can't imagine listening to tunes while riding.

    YMMV
