Dude, Locktite is your friend.
I've used riv-nuts on frames without water bottle bosses. Warning: Riv-nuts require drilling. If the frame has collector value, drilling holes in it will destroy that value.
I've used Permatex Rust Treatment on cars with pretty good success. This stuff is available in small bottles, enough to do a bike frame, at almost all the big chain auto parts stores. It's not...
I posted this in the bike mechanics subforum, and I'll post it here as well. Sorry to see these folks go, there were a good source of old bike parts.
As most of you are probably aware, Loose...
As most of you are probably aware, Loose Screws Small Bike Parts is going out of biz. They are just about wrapped up with their liquidation sale. If you are looking for some old bike parts, this...
Barcon shifters. It's where Insert Name of Divine Being of Your Choice has his/her shifters.
700X32 tubes is what everyone uses on the old 27 rims. Like you said, just make sure you've got the correct valve type.
Arkel makes a pannier that converts into a backpack.
Holy Crap! That looks great.....and cheaper than the name brands!
Like I said, I really like the fleece with the windblocker on the front. It works well in dry, cool weather, it's light and...

A few years ago I bought a windblocker fleece pullover from Nashbar that had the windblocker layer on the front ONLY. It was a great piece of clothing for cycling........down to about 40 degrees. ...
Sorry. I should have done a search first.
I found this really fascinating and sad at the same time. This type of industry will never been seen again in the US or UK.
I think this is a cool video, from back in the day when the USA and UK still made stuff.
Years ago, when I started on this route, I was riding a Schwinn Varsity.
A very popular ride in the NYC area. Just seems to keep getting more popular every year. I can remember riding this route back in the day when is was just me and a few other weirdos riding on bikes...
Good Job! Looking at those pictures has given me 70's flashbacks.
Most did come with belts.....lap belts only. If you got into an accident, you doubled over and cracked your skull on the solid steel dash.
So you are arguing the the demand for gasoline is inelastic? Now with gas at $4/gal, gasoline consumption in the US has dropped 10% from this time last year. Some of that may be from increased...
Bloomberg has been pushing for "congestion pricing" for a long time now. If the price of gas goes up another dollar a gallon, it will be a moot point. The only people who will able to drive private...
Yup. I've been across the GWB many times.....don't get to see much for the reasons you've stated. If they dedicated an entire traffic lane for bikes, I'd be all for a toll. Ain't gonna happen.
50 Cents each way.
Could be a number of reasons why the cop has the knife out for you. Maybe he is biased against cyclists. I once heard a cop refer to cyclists (the kind that wear cycling clothes, as opposed to...
I'm sure he wears the pants in the family.
