    I see the problem. Get rid of the wheel weights and slam the stem. I'm sure that will solve all your problems! :)

    Mirrors are a requirement if you have range-of-motion issues with your neck, or if you ride a recumbent. Hand signals work great, are inexpensive (free) to install, and you can't forget they're on....

    Discussing that particular line of though would certainly get everyone involved 'moderated.'

    The more/further/faster you ride, the more you're likely to appreciate cycling-specific clothes. But they're NEVER required. Set up a folding bike with flat pedals and just wear street clothes.

    Tough call. I like the frame better on the Mercier, including the carbon fork. OTOH, the Windsor is 9-speed instead of just 8. I've always regarded 8-speeds as the illegitimate step-child in the...

    If the star nut is a little loose, it can be 'formed' by bending the blades out a little bit. To get at it, you'll probably have to push it out the bottom -- or if you can't do that, just push it...

    So... Specialized has now trademarked an existing color? Will I have to rename the color or my living room drapes to avoid a lawsuit?

    I doubt very much that the retainers are required. Just don't lose any if you keep them loose.

    Michigan doesn't have a lot in the way of serious hills. But I have taken my bents to hilly places before. I did a few 5- and 6-mile climbs in Tennessee that averaged 8-12% and took an hour or so...

    Didn't the horizontal stabilizers on an F-4 angle down? Or was that different for different versions? About the same era, namely late 70s, F-4s were pretty much the only fighters they had at...

    Not that I'm excusing the behavior or especially the language; but it seems to me that they were already in that camp if they allowed the little girl to deliberately antagonize the cyclist.

    Cinder blocks *might* work, but they'll almost certainly do some damage to the bikes. Make a simple ladder rack for 5 bikes out of 2x4s or pvc pipe (3-bike rack shown.)
