    Just after mounting did you put the wheels on the bike and ride it in a straight line for a few feet before the glue dried? Going to tubs myself and thought this was a common practice to work out...

    I see only two scenarios. Distracted and horrible driving or an intentional buzz. If it was a buzz, he miscalculated and it hurt you. What he did not count on is video evidence. Trust me, you are...

    Since there is not much seat post left, get a BFH and whack it down. Once it has moved down a little, you can try to get it out with some the various methods mentioned above. If it goes too far in to...

    That is a reasonable range for your HR and if you keep it up, it will go down as you get more aerobically fit and you and your heart become more efficient. I am 40+ and routinely maintain an average...
