    Yeah, same sorta stuff here when I rode with a group from the LBS. About 2 dozen riders. It was a road group, and I show up on a hybrid, not really. It's a mountain bike with a rear rack. I tried to...

    I have SPD's and Diadora shoes (aggressive soles) and never a problem getting in or out. Recently ordered a pair of D2's with not so aggressive hiking boot soles. Can't wait to get em!

    Machka is right as always. She has tons of experience. My riding experience is far greater than my wife's. In a rather bold move, I bought a very nice Cannondale mountain tandem. She had never been...

    Yep, did it to my recent build. Best if the bike is totally dissembled, because you're going to have to twist and turn the frame all around to distribute/coat all the inside surfaces. So it is...

    I think that boomhauer pretty well spelled it out for you. In his example above eating a can of fruit or beans is a buck a piece. Trail mix figure $5, and if you stop at Subway, another $6. So you...
