    A new hybrid probably isn't the answer. The biggest difference between a road bike and hybrid is the more upright position of the rider on the hybrid. A new road bike may be the answer instead of the...

    One of the signs of bonking is reduced mental clarity. If this starts happening to you, then the nutritional ketosis is not working for you while riding.

    NOT on a newer Shimano 8-, 9-, 10-, or 11-speed chain. If you break the chain to remove it from the bike, you should use a new replacement pin. Also you shouldn't break the chain at the same pin;...

    I've ridden my age (60) a couple of times since my B-day. Usually I have in a couple of century rides by this time of the year, but work and other commitments has prevented it.

    You probably got a very, very good deal as long as the bike fits you and there's no cracks in the frame. I agree with ksisler in that you should just replace things like tires and brake pads. You...

    My road bike has 30 speeds and my touring bike 'only' has 27. My next road bike will probably have a compact double but with a wide 10 or 11-speed cassette.

    It's pretty flat where I live, but I...

    If you are using the bike on technical trails and single-track a lot, you might want to consider a new set of handlebars. If there's rust on the outside, then it could be even worse on the inside of...

    If you keep doing the same thing, you'll get burnt out. Consider going longer distances or different routes. Also maybe not ride one day a week, but go on a 3 or 4 mile walk instead.

    I always wash shorts after riding. If I commute, I'd wash them after returning home.

    As far as washing, usually in the washing machine on gentle cycle in cold water with a detergent free of...

    Forget the Motobecane. The 61 cm frame might even be a little large for me and I'm 6' 1".

    The GT might be the best bet if the photos are current. It looks like a nice bike with recent tires. About...

    Beat me to it. I don't go more than two days between rides unless I fill up the tires anyway.

    Oh! If you fill up tires with a CO2 cartridge, expect the tires to actually deflate faster. There some...

    Belleville is where I live.

    I've taken Amtrak from St. Louis to near Kansas City twice to ride across Missouri.

    I've taken a bus one way to ride across the Katy Trail the last 4 years.

    There are flat-bar road bikes available. More like a roadie geometry and weight.

    I'd say if your hybrid has suspension, lock it out if possible. Maybe get a solid seatpost if yours is a suspension...

    Mine was an 1986 Amstrad PCW8256 that had 256K of memory which I upgraded to 512K. It also ran CP/M and had a 3" (not 3.5") floppy disc. Hard drive? You got to be kidding.

    Gatorade or something like it would be great as they have carbs plus electrolytes. I buy powdered sports drinks and usually dilute them as they are too strong when warm at full strength.

    That's a great bike for the Katy Trail.

    I concur with boomhauer that you don't need 5 tubes. I've done well over 1,400 miles on the Katy and never had a flat. One tube and a patch kit would be...

    Not an ideal bike for the Katy or any other gravelly trail. I've ridden the Katy using 700x25 tires at 100 psi for short distances - less than 10 miles. I weigh about 210 lbs.
