    Move your thumbs. There are many different positions and angles one can use when riding the hoods. The differences may be subtle, but if you shift around a bit you may discover that a slightly...

    When my knee is acting up, it definitely prefers higher cadence. But it is more aerobic, which is perhaps my weakest point.

    I like the look of the derailleurs. The lack of pricing info scares me. Makes me think 'if you have to ask, you can't afford it.'

    Most cars around here have tinted windows. Only becomes a problem for me because people are trying to be nice and wave me to go first at stop signs. Except I can't see it ... all I know is it's...

    I recently use the the first half of that on a twentysomething and was visibly surprised when he finished the lyric. He laughed and said 'I try to keep up with old guys when I can.'

    I don't think it's today's culture though. I think it's human nature and believe the ancient greek athletes likely were taking potions of herbs or other substances they thought would help.

    I use platforms because I naturally toe out badly on the right. If I keep my foot straight, it screws up my knee.

    Don't recall that specific device, but we always lit our patches briefly. I don't know if it actually made them more secure, but that was the common belief.

    A number of jurisdictions stopped rolling dashboard cams on a routine basis as it ended up that the tapes too often implicated officers in unprofessional if not illegal conduct.

    I remember the leather ones fondly. But wouldn't buy one to wear unless it was NOS. (And those colored reproductions don't really capture the look very well.)

    My mistake. I always thought a rasher was a larger serving, but it's not a term used much in the US so I guess I've just always been in error.

    Raleigh made some crap, but they made some fine...

    You can get a better idea of value posting in the Classic & Vintage: What's It Worth? discussion.

    It's a nice bike with (I believe) a 531 frame. I personally prefer downtube shifters, but it's...
