    There is no correct answer because different people have differing goals. Secondly, there is no such thing as "an index fund that tracks the U.S. bond market." There is a market for Treasury bonds,...

    There's nothing inherently wrong with either of those, but both approaches are fairly complicated and take quite a bit of money to begin. Real estate, especially, isn't for beginners, unless you want...

    BTCNJ is a good club and does do a lot of rides around Fort Lee. It's by far the biggest club in the area, with about 1,700 members. I've been a member since 2008 and enjoy riding with them.

    As everyone is saying, you're not really going to get "in trouble" if you shift the rear under load but you risk a chain drop (at least if you don't have a chain catcher) on the front if you do that....

    And that's about all you can do. Use a straight lane, if there is one or take the lane if you're going through an area where there will potentially be lots of turns. I learned that lesson the hard...

    So I had them built by someone who's a professional wheelbuilder that I just happen to know, as she was a guide on a tour we took years ago. I know they were Kinlin, but I can't remember which...

    +1 I have a set of custom-built wheels with a WI hub and love them. But it's not the hub that makes them a good set. Rather it's the rim and spokes and their suitability to my purpose. That's much...

    Just curious as to why you immediately went to replacing it as a result of shifter wear? Usually replacing the RD cable, cassette and/or chain will solve that issue.

    I think the problem most people have with the announcers on races shown in the U.S. is the fact that they say the same things over and over. Paul Sherwin is the worst at this and "Gogo" is a close...
