    The other day, I drove home on the last couple of roads of the route that I bike-commute home and nearly blew through the stop sign that I normally blow through on my bike.

    A few years ago, my sons and I were riding part of the route to a campground, the end of which includes a long, 3-5% downhill grade on a minor highway. As we were coasting rather nicely down the...

    Different bikes, different saddles?

    I have a road-style touring bike (Kona Sutra, great name!) and a 29er mountain bike and on both, I have been using the saddles that they came with which are very similar in shape, both made by WTB....

    I like the idea of 650 (also marketed as 27.5") wheels for small (generally) women so as to keep the frame proportions good but generally, I don't see the need. But then, for men who are very tall,...

    Thanks acidfast7, the 28er explains why Schwalbe sometimes identifies some 29er tires as (for example) 28"x1.9".

    I wonder, is 29" in the US equal to 28" in Germany? If so, is it because of...

    Yes, that's what I meant when I said that the tires could be installed on "opposite" bikes (29er vs 700c road) but not usable (i.e., width issues) and to successfully install them would have been...

    700c vs 29": difference?

    In trying to find a local LBS that could supply me with a specific tire (pair) that I was looking for, I ran into what I believe to be a profound lack of understanding as to tire sizes.

    I have a...

    My opinion, bike lanes are BIKE lanes. I don't care if it is better pavement than the sidewalk, if there is a sidewalk, then pedestrians, of any speed, should be on the sidewalk. Do I salmon in the...

    Ours is not a large city, 3 LBS: one doesn't have it in their catalog, another doesn't deal with Conti tires, I haven't checked with the last yet but it is the pricey store.

    I think I need a special tool for the lockring right? If so, since I don't have one, I'll take it to the shop, I have other stuff I have to get them to do on another bike.

    Individual cogs rotating freely relatively to the others but not complete rotations, just a bit (maybe the equivalent of 1/2 cog-to-cog distance or maybe even less).

    9-speed Shimano Alivio (2012 KHS Tempe 29er, ~2,000kms)

    The cassette has not had any maintenance on it before so it is not as if anything was not put back that was taken off.

    If you take my point of view that commuting isn't about racing, it's just getting to work, then, other than the safety aspect (the drafter bumping into me), drafting is fine by me. However, if you...
