    No problem Glenn. As it happens, I haven't been on a bicycle since we last emailed. Out life has been a really sad country song .... literally. Just before Christmas we had a pet of 13 years go...

    Nah, Tom, it happens every winter. It's in the summertime that you're required to have an excuse for not riding!

    Congrats on the radiation outcome, BTW.

    You are correct in your understanding. What everyone else, (including me), is saying is that to solve the problem you have to loosen the inner front derailleur limit screw and readjust the cable to...

    I originally had Ultegra shifters on the T2000, but don't remember experiencing that. They were 6503s, (9speed), mated with an Ultegra front mech and Ultegra cranks. Probably just a difference in...

    Interesting observation.

    It seems to be a trend that, within reason, the farther down Shimano's line you go, the better suited the component is to tandem usage. I found that their $35 "below...

    You've basically answered your own question. Although adjusting front derailleurs on any given bike is an art akin to voodoo, I'm going to assume that after both you and your LBS have futzed with...

    Love to. We both might even be in good enough shape to take the tandem so we don't slow you down and ride up and back to our truck.

    I'm sending my contact info.

    That'll work, and if you guys decide to spend the night in the area, we have a 30 amp, (camper), electrical hookup and a dump station right here.

    OK, now that what *really did* need to be said is out there, let's see if we can get you up and running with what you've got first. You said you changed the brake pads. To what?

    I'd rather have a broken arm than move! A broken bone only hurts for a couple of days, and moving is usually weeks of back breaking agony.

    Also, the arm is completely healed in 6 weeks, and I...

    Well, it says you would have to get a "special event permit". But glad to hear it apparently has no chance of passing.

    You got that right! Particularly the lovebugs part! I just drove an 80 mile round trip, and I had to stop and clean my windshield off twice before I got home, and it needs it again!

    Suncoast Bikes, right on the trail at the starting point of many rides. I've never been overly impressed with them, but they can certainly adjust your derailleur, sell you a tube or fix your flat.

    Actually folks, there are hills at the north end of the Withlacoochee too, just not on the trail itself. The annual Rails-To-Trails ride, (coming up Oct. 5th), adds an 8 mile section of some rolling...
