    That isn't padding. It is to stop moisture and chaffing. If your seat is too padded that is the problem. IF you sink into the padding on the seat, then you will be carrying weight somewhere other...

    When I got my Downtube Mini years ago, the seat post bent. I emailed a photo to Yan and he sent me a new one. I put a broomstick in it so it wouldn't bend again. So I wouldn't say he doesn't care...

    Look at the brake pads. Do they have gunk on them? If so, that is the problem. I use red brake pads so I can see the crud. I just went through this with a bike I hadn't ridden for a few months....

    Only if the climate changes to a glacial period. Looks like we are going the opposite direction so, no.

    For that low of a budget, I would stick with what you have and wait until you can afford an upgrade. Getting basically the same level of bike with the only difference being the size of wheels...

    Our tourist board (the historical society) won't let anything be installed downtown that doesn't look right (to them). They didn't like bike bars until it was made clear to them that bicycles were...

    No, I was thinking of a locking system that would be installed by the city in certain heavily used areas. No need to install your own lock so weight wouldn't matter. If we are going to get people to...

    Hardest material to cut with metal grinder

    Anyone know of a material that can't be easily cut with an angle grinder? I have an idea for a lockable parking space for bicycles but if anything can be cut with an angle grinder in 30 seconds, it...

    My property taxes pay for the roads in our town so everyone pays almost equally. We get less than $180,000 in gas taxes and that gets eaten up pretty quickly when I think of the few times they plow...

    I use mine for work and even then if it is windy, I wear my hearing protectors over to block the wind noise. They are unusable on a bicycle. I have only tried about three brands but they were all...

    Yes, but it is now an Xtracycle.

    Yes I agree about the trails but the bike sounds very underpowered for almost everything unless maybe it is geared REALLY low. I am not saying electric bikes with enough power wouldn't be useful...

    Don't shift like that. I haven't owned a bike that would like that. Get your bike tuned up and yes, you can trust it.

    Great review, covered most things. Sounds like a pretty useless bike. All the trails around here only allow non-motorized traffic anyway.

    Yeah, that is the 'roller thingy' I couldn't think of the name.

    I've run my cable housing from the last cable stop on the chainstay on my '80's mtn bike frame. I also used the roller thingy they provide for that sharp turn at the derailleur.

    At least you can eat the berries and they are tasty. English Ivy and Scotsbroom have no redeeming qualities.

    Take a look at Bikes at Work trailers. They can carry a lot more than your wagon and are safer.

    I left my front brakes the same as they were and messed around with the rear brakes but finally broke down and put a disc brake on the rear, Xtracycle is set up for that. Brakes are fine. Don't...

    I would go for some thick and strong nylon type fabric. It would be plenty strong and fold too. You could maybe put a ribbon (seat belt strap) under the center running fore and back so the dogs don't...

    Giving birth to all those kids is far more impressive.

    I would only be concerned about the connection not harming the frame but other than that, it will be fine. Pulling from the axle doesn't put much strain on a bike as far as I can see.

    Don't bother with a lighter bike. Most of these kits don't work well with newer bikes except the cheap bikes. A strong steel bike would be ideal.
