    There's all kinds of stands at the NAHBS shows, and I'm sure they don't want to scratch the paint!

    I had the older version Crud fenders. Once I figured out how to get them adjusted just right, they worked great. They have only a few mm clearance above the tires, so if they are too far away in...

    Here in SW Ohio, it's very hard to find a ride that flat. Our biggest hills are maybe 350 feet, but there's usually a few of them and a lot of smaller climbs on a typical ride, so we usually get...

    I don't think I could like that Revelate bag. It looks too wide right under the saddle. I don't even like most small seat bags for tools and spare tubes, they are too wide, and rub my legs.
