    Go to Home Depot and get a razor knife. Make a slit all the way through the side where the toe is. This will relieve the pressure and allow the shoe to stretch. I had to do this will all my running...

    My R800 is a great rain bike. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I'm actually going to invest some cash into it by changing the stem to bring the handlebars closer so I don't have to reach to...

    I put this wheel set on in 1996. I swear it's the best wheel set I ever had until the one I have now on my number one bike.

    Show me your beater bike.

    The other night I was out riding and my crank came loose. I can't even begin to tell you how dangerous this is. Your feet are clipped to the pedals and if the crank comes loose you can't unclip. I...

    Friday I completed 27 straight days riding but my crank came loose in mile 39 of a 40 mile ride. I've been cycling since 1983 and have never had a crank come loose. I took it back to the shop where I...

    Spring in New England has never been charitable to cyclists. I remember back in 1983 when I sustained a stress fracture in my foot running. I asked the orthopedic surgeon if I could ride a bicycle to...

    I haven't ridden on the sidewalk since I was 10 years old. What you are describing are pedestrians on bicycles.

    I'm taking up your cause. I'm nearly 70 and have been cycling since 1983. I never wear those god-awful geeky looking cycling shirts because they have always felt creepy to me. I had to wear them in...

    In this area in the springtime there is a constant steady wind averaging 13mph blowing from west to east. My regular 40 mile course takes me directly into that wind for 12 miles. But yesterday when...

    I'm 67 but still work 60 hours a week so when I got Friday off before Memorial Day I looked forward to 4 consecutive days off. The problem is there is rain in the forecast for all of those days here...

    I've been on the wheel since 1983 when I got a stress fracture from running. American culture regards cyclists as people too poor to afford a car or too weird to drive one. A bicycle is for children...

    I'm not judging anything but cycling jerseys. What inspired my rant was that I dug one out from 1995 when I was still racing and in a club. I put it on and it felt creepy just like it used to when I...

    Unhappy is probably the key word. Most of them likely ride off the back in a group and get their jollies by donning spiffy cycling jerseys and giving the rest of us a bad name by riding poorly and...

    I wear bib shorts and I spend big bucks on them. I'm not cheap it's just that cycling shirts feel to restrictive to me and I don't need to impress anyone. I'm riding a bike, not going to a fashion...

  20. European cycling shirts suck and I stopped wearing them 20 years ago.

    Just came from Walmart where I bought five $3 tee shirts that are bright lime green and every bit as visible as any $70 cycling shirt. I have always hated cycling shirts with their overrated wicking...

    This reminds me of something. My dad's gone now, he died at 90. About thirty years ago I had just bought my first bike and I rode to his house to show it to him. I was wearing a brand new pair of...

    I think some have misconstrued what I was saying. I'm not saying you shouldn't ride in a group. I'm saying that when you ride in a group the danger level escalates by at least a factor of ten and you...

    Group riding is dangerous. Tell me your stories.

    I've been cycling since 1983 and I have never had a mishap on a lone ride. Group rides are a whole different animal and I have scars from head to toe to prove it. The last incident occurred in 2008...
