    Sounds a bit like the Denver Cruiser Ride! Thanks for the tip.

    Good suggestion. I would be happy to take you up on your offer. I pmed you yesterday so just let me know what you think.

    I'd also be curious to know whether you all think I need a better bike than...

    Thanks! I would love to get your exact commute. I am living in GP now, on the east side of it. I love the neighborhood so far... definitely a step up from my Denver digs, even if it's not a gated...

    Changing a tire on an IGH bike is about the same as on a fixed gear or freewheel SS bike. I find it easier just because getting the chain back in place is not as annoying.



    So, serious...

    As the first fellow Windsor owner I suspect you may be the first to really understand what I am looking for... I have been very pleasantly surprised with the Oxford for the price. I won't be...

    How long does your 7-speed take to shift? My 3-speed feels instantaneous. I guess I don't see how anything could be better than that.

    That and the fact that shifting doesn't require as much...

    I have been told I am not using the right sort of derailleurs but yeah, my Nexus shifts in <1 sec whereas my derailleur bikes (current and former) shift from 1-2 sec each. Am I just a freak?

    Well, I had busted the last set of pedals a week ago and finally replaced them with some nice metal ones so now I'm happy again. I think a combination of riding a friend's featherweight bike and...

    In my experience, the Nexus shifts WAY faster than the many derailleurs I have tried or owned. No, not Dura Ace.

    I am not following how this analogy relates to the internal hub - derailleur preference.

    The music forum reference was more to do with the way people respond, not the content of the debate....

    Probably never, I don't know what price point those come in at but probably not mine (remember, I am "'only' of modest attainment"). The 21-speed was a Shimano Altus IIRC. Considering my current ride...

    I think I understand your perspective, but for me the 3-speed Nexus is very preferable to my previous 21- and 10-speed bikes which had derailleur systems. I cringe when I look at derailleurs anymore,...

    Why do you say that? I am not a big fan of derailleur systems personally, because they shift so much slower than a Nexus.

    New commute; upgrade or hang tight?

    I've been on a Windsor Oxford as my main commuter for over 3 years, and I am about to move to a different city with a slightly longer commute (one-way distance increasing to 6 from 4 miles). I am...

    I do wish people who have "the need for speed" would not use MUPs to get it. Pretty obnoxious, especially mixed in with the inexperienced types.

    Let us know how it goes! I'll be curious since I am also moving to Atlanta (from Colorado) and am going to try to commute from my new digs to Emory each day.

    Not suggesting anyone's a bozo. Just saying, I have talked to a *lot* of people about the neighborhoods there as you can imagine (I'm not going around asking people about the park itself, lol). I...

    Apparently not everyone from Atlanta agrees with you, I have gotten a lot (not just a few, a lot) of opinions otherwise. Particularly about Grant Park, Ormewood Park and East Atlanta.

    I guess I am overall not too worried about safety when I check Atlanta's crime maps... there seems to be a lot more property crime here compared to Denver but less violence (or maybe it's just not...

    Thanks a bunch! This is basically what I was looking for. It does seem to be quite divergent from what Google thought I should be doing. Do you think when the Beltline gets fully developed in...

    Hm, mixed reviews eh? I am not sure about why these are only appropriate for track ends either, I have seen them on dropouts like mine (perhaps inappropriately).

    Surprised, that is the first negative opinion I have heard of Grant Park so far (though you're also the first cyclist to weigh in).

    Do you have any alternate routes that bypass the Memorial / I-20...

    I'm moving to Atlanta in a few weeks and I have a route planned to get to my job. If I could get comments on safety, feasibility, better alternatives I would really welcome them. I am an avid...
  24. Chain tug on with a 3-speed internal hub?

    I was fixing a stranger's bike (got a pinch flat) on a group ride recently and saw a chain tug for the first time. Apparently this is a device meant to tension the chain and, some are saying, center...

    You're right, there is a nut. The adjustment at the top is quite loose. And you're also right, that it probably can't be cut off due to the mechanism. I didn't get any instructions... I'll talk to...
