    Those lock guarantees are basically worthless, don't worry about them. For example, if they use power tools to remove the lock, that's not covered. If you don't have the cut lock, it's not covered-...

    On the tandem, my stoker uses foam pipe insulation over the bullhorn bars. I think it's the 3/4" pipe size.
    That insulation does crush down, so you have to replace fairly regularly. But then...

    If both of you unclip the same foot when stopping, that simplifies things. If not, you can work around it (current stoker clips in before we start, stays clipped in until we stop).
    It took me about...

    Title- "It’s the Cyclists Falling Harder"
    Then one phrase "often hurling riders to the road and, many fear, increasing the severity of injuries."

    I remember my dad using them a few times- that would have around 1966-1970, I guess. I assume that was on bike tubes.
    In 1976, I started working at a dump truck place doing a lot of flat-fixing on...

    One way to check on some of these "deals"- a lot of the name-brand bicycle companies have a list of authorized dealers on their website. Check if the dealer in question is on that list. If they're...

    If a fat old man like me can do it on a cruiser bike, sure you can do it on a road bike.
    The difficulty varies considerably depending on how hilly it is, or how much wind you have.
    If it's hot, a...

    Can't think why you'd bother. However, I will point out that aluminum foil can work pretty good for masking some small odd-shaped items.

    It looks like the quick-release works like the quick-release on the front wheel of a bicycle, flip the handle up, rotate if necessary, and the bag should separate from the mount.
    I can't see getting...

    Stoker computer/speedometer

    The last couple of years, I've had a computer/speedometer on the stoker handlebars. Works fine, except I had to splice some wire into a wired unit to reach, and the wire runs up the top frame tube...

    If you mean "which subforum on bikeforums.net", just use both of them, plus the regional one, the touring one, the road one, etc. No need to pigeonhole yourself.

    I think the problem is that people have preconceived ideas of what "running a marathon" consists of. If all you require is going 26 miles at whatever pace you'd normally handle- no problem, I can...

    Nearly all of the regular riders I know use clipless pedals of a variety of different styles.

    Making a lock sounds like a good challenge.

    My idea is to use thin-wall tubing about 2" diameter, with filling consisting of light chain or cable, marbles, and tar. The 2" size would prevent bolt...

    It is a well-known fact that cars and bicycles that make funny noises, throw chains, etc., won't do it while a mechanic is around, so I was wondering if your bike was detecting the stand and shaping...

    I wouldn't worry about it. Losing weight is fine, but unless you're really marginal to begin with, 10 lbs won't make the difference between finishing the ride.

    My opinion:
    If you're riding fat tires (2.25") at 35 psi, then you can potentially air them up at a gas station, and that's about the only reason I can think of to use Schrader.
    Otherwise, use...

    If you'll ride it, or think anyone else will, go for it.

    Some of the more popular routes with some of our riders are the hillier ones, just depends on what you're interested in.

    Agreed, more context would be helpful. As quoted, those are not standard English phrasing, which makes the meaning unclear.

    The problem I notice with a bicycle is not the lack of traction, it's the variability in the traction. You'll have a few corners that are perfectly clean, a few where you get a gritty feeling as you...

    On my single bike, I have triple up front, 9 speed in back. Mostly, I use big ring + top 8 in back, middle ring + bottom one or two in back. So maybe 10 or 12 out of the 27.

    There should be some way to adjust the tension on the pedals, adjusting them to the loosest position may work best for you. Assuming you hadn't tried that, that is.
