I remember hearing that same prediction in the 70s.
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.
You've got to be kidding here.
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.'
sums it up for me
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.)
(And I wouldn't wear one...
I have no reason to believe bike racing isn't like most every other sport. Most of the athletes will do whatever they can to gain any perceived edge while staying just inside the boundaries of the...
Beautiful. Interesting fork and head tube angle.
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...
Looks like toast to me.
The bike I mean.
(But perhaps the husband as well.)
If a husband speaks in the forest and his wife is not there to hear him, is he still wrong?
I've always thought "I've got a cell phone in my seat bag - they can get contact info there." I need to rethink that as I do usually ride alone in rural areas. Never carried my license as a...
A Rasher of Raleighs
Not only now, but for quite some time. I ride 35 year old steel that's well under 25 pounds.
The real science says otherwise.
I haven't crashed since I returned to riding. Crashed hard enough in my youth to severely bend the frame, but fortunately landed on my head and escaped with "only" a concussion. I wore a helmet...
