    On the P-clamps from the electrical department at a hardware store: Ug! That's just nasty. It's one step up from duct tape (Please, e0richt, don't do duct tape:eek:) At least spring for the vinyl...

    You said that your bet was "rhetorical". So where, in the definition of "rhetorical" does your bet fit? Is is "of, relating to, or concerned with the art of rhetoric"? Nope. Is it "expressed in...

    Okay. No problem. However, I doubt that Polar uses unreplacable batteries either. I have a Polar monitor once. It wasn't obvious how to change the batteries but they could be changed.

    First, if you are going to imply that someone is ignorant or stupid, you should make sure you don't say something ignorant yourself. "Rhetoric" is different from a "rhetorical question". Rhetorical...

    It could also be a SR "Ovaltech" or Sugino "Cycloid" as well as other brands, although those are rarer. Shimano did license the technology to other manufacturers.

    Huh? I've had a couple of Sigmas. They use a CR2032 coin battery that is easily accessed through the bottom of the computer just like every other bicycle computer I've owned. I've even changed the...

    Again, you are using words that don't mean what you think they mean. A rhetorical question is on for which there isn't really an answer or the answer is obvious. "Does the Pope wear a funny hat?",...

    In the context that spare_wheel used it, it means "it has been shown".





    This is not a helmet thread. It's a light thread. Let's keep it as such.

    The minimum insertion line hasn't changed on seatposts in the last 30 years. Even mountain bikes with 400 mm posts still have insertion lines that are in the same place as a 200 mm seatpost.

    Follow your own advice, sir. Follow your own advice. You told e0richt to go read the last paragraph of post 24. Perhaps you should read it.

    To quote the great Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. If you had specified some parameters for the bet you made to Grillparzer, you might have...

    Except that, in your eyes, safety advice is always concescending fire and brimstone safety nannyism. You drag every discussion is the exact same direction.

    In the sciences, we call that a "trivial question" when we are being professional. When we aren't being professional, we call it a "Well, duh!" question and follow it with a dope slap:thumb:

    The Trek or Raleigh would be the best choices. However, be aware that the size range for both of those bikes is overly optimistic. The range of fit on bicycles is much closer than 5'4" to 5'10". ...

    Whadd I say? Huh? Whadd I say? I can see some of the logic from the anti-H crowd...not that I agree with it...but I can see some of their point. However, lights are, well, black and white.

    A Tiagra would help. That said, I have a cross bike with the same chainstay length as your CrossCheck and I'm using an Ultegra front triple derailer on it without your rubbing issues. I also have...

    Nicely distilled. I'm sure, however, that the ninja crowd will twist the logic to say that having a collision is safer than avoiding them.

    That whooshing sound you are experiencing is the point going completely over your head. The point isn't the injuries. Those would have occurred with or without clipless. Crashing while mountain...

    Really? You're afraid of going fast but think riding at night without lights is safe? There's obviously a reason you have the Cheshire Cat as your avatar. You fell down the rabbit hole long ago.

    How wonderfully kindergartenish of you:rolleyes: Should I respond "Well. So's your old man!"? Maybe we should go straight to the Triple Dog Dare phase of the discussion.

    The general guideline is still about 2". But part of the equation that you are missing is that seatposts have grown in diameter of the years. Many posts in the 90s were around 27.2mm while more...

    I suspect that the alignment of the derailer with the chainrings is the problem. I've found that a very slight deviation in the derailer alignment can cause chain rub. The space between the plates of...

    You say my examples are worthless in the context of the discussion but I haven't seen any "discussion" from you or others giving counter explanations. I don't "get it" because you haven't provided...
