    I think you meant PVC, not fiberglass. I only drink bottled or filtered water; good point otherwise. Though considering the chemical warfare we face daily from food/beverage producers it probably...

    It's uncertain whether aluminum is harmful so I choose to avoid it. Putting coins in your mouth, while not aluminum, was to emphasize how some metals leach or at least cause a metallic taste. The BPA...

    Actually, aluminum is in antiperspirant, but deodorant has its own issues. Regardless, for a little tmi, I stopped using both.



    Nice, haha! They should just make a lid that attaches to recycled...

    Aluminum leaches, there's huge controversy whether it's dangerous or not...to health.
  5. Thanks.

    Thanks.

    No, the logo looks like it may be applied under the clear powdercoat when it was repainted. From what I read, it's most likely a Trek. Get the serial #, and call Trek customer service...they'll tell...

    Well they're on my urban assault bike so I want them to be bombproof, and at 35 lbs, it's a steamroller...once it's rolling, it keeps on going. I'm more worried about pinch-flats and punctures than...

    He said the elderly man had "a kink in his neck to see ahead of him", doesn't sound like he's doing much looking over his shoulder when changing lanes, or even looking completely left and right at...

    No matter how often I tell people that, they still run away from me. :(

    The quote parallels the saying that you're only stealing/cheating yourself. Your story is a fantastic parable, I hope to remember it the next time I'm struggling to find the right words to explain...

    Looks like it would've been just as easy to unscrew the post instead.

    Before the topic is closed, I'm reminded that it's sometimes best to keep my mouth shut, not listen to hearsay, don't fan the flames, and to not get hung up on every typed, mistyped, or omitted...

    Ugh, that's the real problem, the last thing I want is to have learn one more thing. I already have enough toil and trouble, but like you said, it's the only way to truly appreciate them. They sound...

    Thanks for sharing more, but I can already see this is beyond my budget. You might try listing it in the marketplace though. She's a beaut', good luck!

    Thanks, if we don't figure out a trade, I'll look for a donor bike, though I'm not well versed in finding inexpensive buys.

    Yeah, that's part of my dilemma...do I want to mess with them, learn how...

    Yep, just a Bianchi Sport. It's actually a nice riding frame, and is stamped Ishiwata. Being a Japanese Bianchi, I didn't give it much credence until I read the first section of this site:...

    Thanks! I hadn't noticed the tall headtube until y'all said it was bigger than stated. No way anyone under 6 feet is riding that.

    Not much you can do to deter a determined attacker, so try to focus on defending yourself. Just like a firearm, practice drawing and using your mace so it becomes ingrained and you'll be aware of...

    It's Sekai's 2nd to lowest model, considering all the "new" stuff, what's it worth?
