    I usually ride 30 - 50 on the weekend and seldom eat beforehand. Sometimes I'll eat a corn muffin.

    Congratulations. Don't think I'd finish the route once the rain started. Always sends me back home.

    With the pop up thunderstorms we have in the summer, weather aps are of limited value. In...

    Can't tell much from those pictures, but Marin generally put together fairly nice bikes so you'll get a better bike for the buck rebuilding than buying something new on the low end of the price...

    Guess I'm a geezer. I've got a 10 year old flip phone. A rugged model I can toss in the pocket of my golf bag and not worry about. Haven't felt the need for greater connectivity and although...

    I somehow managed to never break any major bones. Multiple concussions and a lot of stitches (although I think maybe they believed more in stitches back then). More often than not achieved in...

    I'd agree with those who say ride what you have for a little longer and see where you really want to go. I returned to riding about 3 years ago with somewhat the same idea. Riding 5 miles or so in...

    I could see that working if the wind was actually even, but in my experience the hills tend to block the wind so I often try to plan to ride into the wind uphill. Although on balance I don't think...

    I have no electronics nor any lengthy routine, so I putz around and check the weather on-line and stop to look at some other useless thing and end up wasting half an hour before I get out the door.

    When I was a kid, European bikes had the cachet of quality. Asian bikes were cheap crap. American bikes were tanks. There was probably some truth to that in a broad sense. But the quality of...

    It's really more a collection of data for advocacy purposes than a study in any scientific sense of the term.

    It's an interesting question. If the sound is a byproduct of turbulence after the air has crossed over the surface, I wouldn't think that would create drag on the surface.

    It's a nice bike and it has sentimental value. I'd have paid the 2 bills without a second thought. Sure, the 'owner' is tacky at best to ask for money, but he did apparently came by the bike...

    To be fair, the comparison should be between 70s 753 and the modern 853 or 953. Top of the line then compared to top of the line now.
