    Well, they haven't tried to charge me or sell me a new wheel, so I don't blame greed. I'll stop in in the morning and see what tools they were trying to use.

    On the 4 year old or so Trek Navigator 3, one of the spokes finally wore out. When we went to get it fixed, the shop reported that the freewheel is apparently too tight to remove, even after applying...

    As it turns out, one of the most common things I have to do is to go meet up with a family member and give them a lift home, or to bring them somewhere they have a ride home from. Weight is a non...

    I do most of my shopping at Costco by bicycle, so I think the issue is that people just aren't aware of the options for utility bicycles. Mine is a basic single speed Sun Atlas with ginourmous...

    Cheap best way to cut a cheap lock?

    Friend of mine has been bike commuting around campus. I told her to get a good U lock instead of a cheap cable lock. She decided to use both. She called to ask for help because the cable lock is...

    You probably want to repaint when you get one anyways. My experience with a Worksman wasn't very good, to put it mildly; friday night worksmanship, the stock accessories like seats, pedals, etc. all...

    Mounting a big front basket?

    Got a Sun Atlas X-type recently, after getting fed up with incessant repairs of my POS Giant lemon. I'm trying to swap things out, but the Wald 157 oversized front delivery basket is giving me pause....

    Seats aren't there to fit our waistline, they're there to fit the skeleton underneath it. I had to swap out my cruiser's seat for something a bit narrower for comfort sake.
