    Let's start by saying that I have been nothing but respectful towards you in my posts. I haven't said that you are wrong to like the helmet nor have I said that your opinion is BS. I expect the...

    I don't disagree. However, I never said that anything about chaadster's satisfaction with the product. If he is happy with the helmet, that is his choice. I feel, however, that the product could...

    I do the same except I also dry the bag in a dryer. I've done it many, many times without problems.

    The screens on all electronic devices is polarized. This can cause issues when exposed to sunlight. It doesn't hurt the screen but it can wash out the image. It's even worse when you wear...

    Yes and no. Even kept in cool dry conditions, the paper used to make the box is a low grade acidic paper that will degrade over time. The acid in the paper degrades the cellulose which makes many...

    It seems to me that if someone is going to sell a helmet for $140 that is supposed to enhance visibility, they should sell one that is useful for...

    I've had a Cannondale 2.8 in the past which was best ridden in black leather and a ball gag. It was rough. Good and fast but at the end of a ride, you really wanted to call it "Mistress" and thank...

    Poor Nightshade. He's simply convinced that even thinking about clipless pedals is going to result in death and dismemberment. I have fresh scabs on my knees, a bruised knee, bruised shoulder and a...
  9. $140 (http://torchapparel.com/collections/all)....

    $140. Which seems a lot for an essentially disposable item. Looking at their promotional video, you are also paying a lot of money for a "be seen" light but not a light to see by. Concept is good...

    Perhaps you should go back and read my post 77. I have read the articles cited and looked at the calculations for the stresses, along with seeing...and even quoting...the semantics. All I can say...

    Having been to Amsterdam recently, keyven's comment pretty much describes the hell that is that city. If you are a cyclist, you should ride like the chariot racers in Ben Hur and if you are...

    Yes, you need to wait for the chain to dry or use a solvent to remove the water. Acetone or denatured alcohol work quite well. If you add the oil to a wet chain, the oil will float on water...think...

    A Cannondale Synapse Alloy 7 is a good value. REI has them for $950. I purchased a used one recently and was pleasantly surprised at the weight...22 lbs stock.

    I've also suggested the Jamis...

    D'oh! I have you confused with MechBgon. Sorry.






    I think a lot of the "jarring" issues are with soft switches that are popular with some light makers. The Radbot, Cateye Reflex and...

    The question you have to ask is why? Why make an overshoe (galoshes) with it's own cleat when someone already makes a good waterproof bicycle shoe? The 45NRTH Fasterkatt is exactly what you need.

    It depends on the rear light. The Planet Bike light you have (I have one too) isn't that great a rear light. Yes, it has a reflector but it's a low output light compared to other lights like the...

    Your pump already has one. You have to disassemble the head and swap the parts inside around. You can see what the parts look like here. If your pump is already set up for presta, you just turn...

    I'd suggest a different pad first. I've found that the salmon Koolstops that the Paul's come with can be squealy. Switching to the dual compound MTB pads like you can see in post 4 reduces or...

    Everything. I have bought complete bikes since 1992 but they rarely stay stock and the last 7 (of 9) have been from frame up. In ascending order of usefulness (i.e. fun to work bikes)

    It's hard to keep up. 28 teeth used to be the max and still is on the 105 and (maybe) Tiagra. Sora seems to be the same as the Ultegra. That's good to know and maybe life for touring cyclists...

    The problem is that creatively equipping bikes with both road and mountain parts is, essentially, a thing of the past. We are now stuck with the range of gearing that Shimano thinks is best rather...

    Again, more lights are better. I agree that batteries can drain and they can lose contact but the solution to that problem is another unit since 2 lights are less likely to both fail.
