    All I know is that I can pedal my granny gear faster and easier than I can walk. I also hate walking far. :)

    Tru Dat on coasting. It also gives us something else to shoot for. ;)

    I did figure that part out in the other thread, but I still want to discuss that here for other members. After all, "there is nothing there for us." I didn't remember what they were called.

    I hate headwinds. They kill my momentum and are a constant bane. Strangely, Alabama winds seem to shift to work against both hunters and cyclists. I always seem to get a headwind, even when I turn...

    1950's JC Higgins into a pack mule?

    I am intending to turn my 1950's JC Higgins into a pack mule. Since I'm not necessarily trying to keep it strictly vintage, is this better discussed here or in the Mechanics board?

    Will I need to...

    I may be interested too as I am working on a couple pack bikes. I too am a clydesdale and intend to stay one.

    I may also need a crash course in cables. I haven't given them much thought beyond checking them and getting Wal-Mart brand cables (easiest to get) if I have any questions. Oh yeah, I fill them...

    The other thread was declared a "*** thread" and is now gone. We have to start all over.

    If I'm gonna try clipless, I need to know what to look for.

    I've seen egg beaters. I think Bob's...

    I was trying to figure out what kind of clipless pedals to use on my mountain bike when the thread becane designated as a *** thread without having a *** discussion. I would like to know what to...

    If it isn't slack (and it isn't) on the small/small combo, you're fine. If it doesn't pull banjo string tight just before (or upon) shifting to big/big, again you'bs fine. You have a couple inches....

    Personally, for some items, I would also comb "outside the bike shop," especially when some parts (like brake pads, chains, cables, etc) must be aquired rapidly. Wal-Mart has suitable substitutes...

    I've tried that and found it to be useless to me. I would use heat and B'laster PB together to get the pedals off. ...then again, I use PB on everything.

    I do like their marine grease.
  14. Personally I would not concern myself with that...

    Personally I would not concern myself with that type of rust, which I bet is just enough to stain, unless you want a purdy bike. However, I would get my can of B'laster PB (a WD-40 competitor) out...

    Believe it or not, that thang may still be faster than my home internet connection. :scared: Now I have better luck with my cell phone, though it isn't exactly Speedy Gonzales either. Still, this...

    Love for the mobile users?

    This has come up several times, but I would like to see an easier to use interface available to mobile users. This can be accomplished as follows:

    1) X Tapatalk
    2) ? A dedicated mobile app
    3) ?...

    I see those messages sometimes but not on BikeForums. I think it's malware. Sometimes you don't have to find it, it instead finds you. Sometimes you might even see it going to Google or...

    All started because somebody compared a semiauto ****** to clipless pedals and a revolver to platform pedals. Soon all mentions of guns quit as the comparason...

    Problem is that there was no discussion about guns except to make a comparason to the pedals. Has this thread actually been read? The topic stayed on pedals until a moderator "performed cleanup"...
  21. Is it me or are the mods causing riots?

    I've seen it several times, and one example is below, but I'm seeing threads on a semi-regular basis that start as an intelligent discussion of the topic at hand, and then a moderator sees some type...

    I saw another guy say about 5000 miles or so. I still think it's in the tire itself. Put the logo on the tire with the valve stem each time and see if the pinhole still moves around the rim.
  24. why do delta trikes seem to "push" with only one rear wheel?

    I am finding that many delta trikes seem to just use one wheel to drive with. While I can see reducing tire wear and improving agility on flat ground, it is really awkward riding mine as it makes...

    That's me. People should know what their stuff will and won't do and use the "superpower" of common sense liberally. For example, some cleaners "do burst into flames and burn invisibly if a flint...
