    Other than schrader is a standard use on nearly everything and presta is non-standard used only on some bikes (non-standard when looking overall and not just bicycles). In a pinch If caught without...

    Outside of a racing bicycle, there is no need for presta valves. They were designed for skinny racing wheels. Your average commuter style bike will have a 700cx35 tire which can accommodate a...

    I second the use of Velcro. I use it to hold an Emerson Bluetooth speaker to my bike. Works very well.

    Tell that to Blue_Bulldog with their "Please tell me everyone is kidding about "Don't wear a helmet."".

    I would have to disagree with DiabloScott this time. A "flat foot bike" as you put it, is the perfect bike for someone new to cycling. It will allow them to stand up and over the bike without having...

    Seems silly to me. It's a waste of space. Only allowing a handful of bikes to be stored where before you could park many more. Not only that, but you only need one lock to properly lock a bike. You...

    Nope, some of us don't buy into myths or junk science. If the helmet was so good at preventing injury, why did Australia not note a statistically significant decrease in the rate of TBI after they...

    "Anyone have any helmet hair tips?"

    Yep, ditch the helmet. The dutch do and survive. If you wear a helmet you will just have to accept "helmet hair", or shave it so short it's not going to matter....

    Motorcycle stereo anyone?

    Just wonder if anyone has used a motorcycle stereo on their bike before? All I have found are 12v but I wonder how many actually use an internal regulator to step the voltage down to say 6v, which is...

    What DiabloScott said.


    I also agree their suggestion of bike to get. You WANT a more relaxed upright bike. You don't end up with a sore back and have far better visibility(and you can relax,...

    I would go the trek route but only because the other has shocks, they are 100% unnecessary outside of bumpy mountain biking. That and if you ever want a front rack or basket, you can basically forget...

    Where I live I get a walkscore of 40 and a bike score of 32. I find this funny as I do all errands on bike and some on foot and am not a fit person. Though it lists the area as being "Flat as a...

    Looks gimmicky to me. That rack is not going to be strong enough to carry a full load of groceries, not by a long shot. It's also more of a racing style bike from the build and not an upright bike.

    I would. As the previous hubs all died, or became otherwise not fully functional, that IS maintenance.

    Also money spent is money spent. It affects the budget all the same. Even if the other hubs...

    Anywhere from 100 to 150 miles a week. 40 alone is getting to and from work. The rest is going places. I don't do 'recreational' riding. Honestly I'd rather be on the computer.
